Janvier 2016

Des lumières vives de Times Square aux boutiques chic de l'Upper East Side, New York recèle des dizaines de quartiers, chacun avec une personnalité unique et des spécificités emblématiques. Zach Udko, qui vit lui-même à NoMad (au nord de Madison Square Park) vous donne son éclairage d'autochtone sur les endroits où séjourner, où manger et sur ce qu'il ne faut pas rater dans six des quartiers incontournables de la ville.

Midtown 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.

Séjour

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.

    Le saviez-vous ?

    Contrairement à la plupart des hôtels, vous trouverez les plus grandes suites et chambres aux étages inférieurs du Plaza. Les ascenseurs étaient relativement nouveaux au moment de l'ouverture, et n'étaient pas populaires auprès des clients – par conséquent, les logements du personnel se trouvaient aux étages supérieurs, tandis que les clients distingués séjournaient aux étages inférieurs.
