Desde las destellantes luces de Times Square hasta las elegantes boutiques del Upper East Side, Nueva York cuenta con decenas de vecindarios, cada uno con su propia personalidad y atracciones distintivas. Zach Udko, quien vive en NoMad (al norte de Madison Square Park), tiene todos los consejos sobre dónde hospedarse, dónde comer y qué hacer en seis de los distritos clásicos de la ciudad.

Centro de Manhattan

Home to the city’s most iconic landmarks and department stores, Midtown emits boundless energy inspired by the constant collision of glamour and grit.

Estancia

For unapologetic New York opulence, few hotels can compare to The Plaza, which recently enjoyed a $450 million restoration. Stay in one of the legendary rooms with 24-carat gold plated Sherle Wagner fixtures or book a night in the playful Eloise Suite, designed by Betsey Johnson for the Plaza’s most precocious fictional guest.

    ¿Sabía que...?

    A diferencia de la mayoría de los hoteles, en The Plaza encontrará las suites más grandes y las habitaciones en los pisos inferiores. Cuando el hotel se inauguró, los ascensores eran aparatos relativamente nuevos y los clientes no se fiaban mucho de usarlos, por lo que, como resultado, los cuartos del personal se situaron en los pisos superiores, mientras que los de los clientes distinguidos se quedaron en los pisos inferiores.
