Updated March 30, 2011—The people. The pace. The possibilities. These are just a few of the reasons why the concierges at Four Seasons Hotel New York love their city. The team recently collaborated to divulge the hottest of the hot in their unflappable, colourful, alive New York, New York.

Street Food Gourmet

Shop the street for the very popular $5 pashmina, which is sold all over the city. The halal chicken and rice vendor on 52nd and 6th has become an outdoor institution.

Dining Scene

For a new twist on traditional cuisine, head to The Lion on 62 West Ninth Street between Fifth and Sixth avenues. The Salon de Paris décor gives this place a look of “faded beauty.”

Wellness Drinks

The trend in libations is drinks with health and wellness components. Wander down a hidden street to find the entrance (9 Doyers Street) of Apotheke Bar, which specialises in this.

That ’70s Style

Platform shoes, fringed shirts, big sunglasses—oh my! These ’70s fashions and others have been spotted around the city. Thanks to wardrobe pieces from Studio 54-era Halston and a cameo by ’70s icon Liza Minnelli in Sex and the City 2, these styles are back.

Fashion Forward

Fashion rules the city, and its queen, Anna Wintour, and fashion-forward First Lady Michelle Obama are fans of Thakoon Panichgul. The young designer from Thailand lives in New York, was featured in the Vogue documentary The September Issue and has designed for Gap.

Broadway Baby

The highly anticipated revival of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying is now showing. Starring Daniel Radcliffe and John Larroquette, this musical comedy by celebrated composer Frank Loesser was hot before it even hit the stage. The Pulitzer and Tony Award–winning play tells a story of executive dreams and office romance.

Money Makes the World Go Around

The Museum of American Finance just opened a timely exhibit called “Scandal!”—covering financial crime in America from 1792 to more recent scandals.

Beach Scene

Warm weather is here, so the concierges recommend taking a New York Water Taxi to an urban man-made beach—South Street Seaport, Governors Island and Long Island City. Be sure to pack your Frisbee, something that’s making a comeback in the city, and get ready for good food, great music, fun drinks, dance parties and more.

Lower East Side Nightlife

The Box and Milk & Honey are two popular nightspots in the happening Lower East Side.

Like the Spice Gallery

Showcasing clever drawings, paintings, sculptures, videos and digital art, Like the Spice Gallery is an up-and-comer in the art scene.

    I was there in February for a FAM trip and it
    was absolutely incredible. The hotel was
    beautiful and the staff gives 110 %. I look
    forward to staying there again and I encourage my customers to experience
    it as well.
