Go inside the worlds of art, fashion, design, and lifestyle.
For Whitewaller‘s November New York issue, out this week for The Salon Art + Design fair, we handpicked a few insiders—a select group of those in-the-know on all things New York—that shared with us how to navigate the city this fall. To kick things off, we have fashion designer Cynthia Rowley share her top spots to eat, drink, network, and relax this week.
WHERE TO EAT
In the West Village, I love La Lanterna di Vittorio for a family Italian meal and late night jazz. Notable mentions are Gemma at the Bowery Hotel and ABC Kitchen.
WHERE TO SIP
Smith & Mills or the bar at Le Coucou. My friends at Roman Williams’ design are so beautiful, you’ll never want to leave.
WHERE TO SEE ART
The Met (and for roof cocktails, too). The Studio Museum in Harlem, MoMA, David Zwirner.
WHERE TO HA VE FUN
If you’re in the mood for something retro, Coney Island is always fun. Rent a Citi Bike for a ride starting at Battery Park with views of Lady Liberty, stop for a round of mini golf at Pier 25, and continue all the way to Harlem (and with Citi Bike, you don’t have to peddle back).
WHERE TO RELAX
The New York Botanical Garden is inspiring and rejuvenating.
TOP SHOW(S) TO SEE THIS NOVEMBER
Xaviera Simmons at Half Gallery opens mid-November, and Rob Pruitt‘s show at Gavin Brown’s enterprise on Grand Street.
