Go inside the worlds of art, fashion, design, and lifestyle.
Frieze New York opens tomorrow, and out this week is Whitewaller New York to guide you through the must-see and be-seen-at spots around town. This week, we’re sharing some “Insider Tips” from those in-the-know on what to see, do, and consume in New York during the fair. Below, we’re sharing tips from Ruba Katrib, curator at Sculpture Center.
WHERE TO EAT AND SIP
I feel lucky to live in close proximity to amazing spots around Clinton Hill like LOOK by Plant Love House for Thai and Dosa Royale for Indian. Otherwise, I am obsessed with Uncle Boons in SoHo and hate to list it here. I am still happy to go to Dimes in the Lower East Side.
WHERE TO SEE ART
I look at art everywhere I can in New York City, so I can’t single out one place. But if I had to, everyone knows that Bridget Donahue presents the most ambitious and fearless gallery shows in her new venture.
WHERE TO HAVE FUN AND RELAX
For cheap thrills, New York is the one of the best places for affordable massages in the world. It’s often worth it to take a chance on some rickety stairs leading into a downtown basement massage spot for emergencies. With more advance notice, I am a big fan of A’s Body Works in Midtown Manhattan.
