Exploring: New York City

Posted: Sep 18 2017

Hello! Our #travelwithkayu series is back and this time we’re going to NYC with fashion and lifestyle sister duo, Shelcy & Christy

There’s nothing like being a tourist in your own city. We live to discover new spots in New York every day. From eateries, coffee shops, outdoor hangouts, there isn’t a shortage of places to check out!


Where to stay
An exclusive social club and hotel in the heart of the MeatPacking District. Don’t be surprised if you come across celebrities there (New Yorkers aren’t fazed by them, remember?) Among the many cool features you’ll find a rooftop pool lounge, private offices and event spaces, delicious food spreads and an amazing staff.
Looking for something more intimate? Try renting an Airbnb. We stayed at this beautiful, modern apartment in Lefferts Gardens – an up and coming neighborhood in Brooklyn. With white walls, high ceilings, big windows and plant ornaments, it set the mood for the best morning scenes.

Where to eat

Bluestone Lane

Need a quick break from walking around the Village? Stop by this Australian eatery for some tasty bites! You get your money’s worth with the portions.

Because wherever you go, you’ll most likely always crave pizza! This Italian spot serves the best pies to locals and tourists alike in Greenwich Village. Trust us, you’ll want to try the margherita pie.
Head to this chic restaurant in Gramercy Park for some authentic Russian cuisine. You’ll actually think you’re in Russia with the decor and knowledgeable staff.

What to do 
Stroll through the West Village.
Hit up some bookstores.
Explore the coffee shop scene in each neighborhood.
