“In a family business, everybody works,” Robyn Pocker announced when I first met her. She went on to tell me that her first job as a little girl was making paperclip chains in her family’s framing establishment. Over the years, she was promoted through the ranks, learning to wrap packages with bakery … read more

Meet 62nd Street

As I wander north away from the busy thoroughfares of Midtown, the streets are becoming more tranquil and calm. Walking across 62nd was like approaching an oasis, where every other building was a haven or an inviting neighborhood haunt.

I had been looking forward to beginning my walk at the Animal Medical Center, … read more

Above it All: Rooftop Bars

There is an iconic image that will almost always sweep through a person’s mind when they think of Manhattan: the New York City skyline. This emblematic scene is much more than a familiar landmark; it seems as though the totality of New York, the physical and the social, is enveloped in this display … read more

While sitting comfortably in the lounge area of The Pierre Hotel, I literally witnessed the conception of a “pop-up.”  A table and chairs were being rolled out and within minutes set up elegantly with a black tablecloth and rose petals … read more

The Spectacular Seasons of Central Park

To me and many others, Central Park is much more than a park. Since 1857, this landscaped masterpiece designed by Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux has been an escape from the hustle and bustle of the city that fully surrounds it. From above, the park glows green like a massive 843 acre emerald … read more

West 52nd Street - A Work of Art

Scaffolding casts long shadows across the sidewalk while the air is filled with dust and the sounds of construction. Besides derelict buildings and abandoned lots, shiny high-rises make their slow ascent into the blue sky. This is Hell’s Kitchen or, more accurately, the west 52nd Street portion of … read more

The intimate space of red lamps, candles and beautiful music is easy to miss, as the Russian Vodka Room is somewhat hidden behind darkened windows. Luckily, my attention was piqued by the faint sounds of a piano floating out of the bar and onto the street. Walking in, I immediately noticed the huge glass … read more

Nat Sherman

The “tobacconist to the world,” Nat Sherman’s eighty-three years of business have given it ample time to sharpen itself and gain an international reputation. Being a tobacconist, the backbone of the business is the cigars. But along with cigar-smoking comes a feeling of macho excellence, and to indulge … read more
