NEW YORK CITY
“Every walk is an amazing mix of modern and historic. It’s inspiring to see a townhouse from the 1800s next to a steel-and-glass architectural jewel.”
Start your day at Happy Bones with a coffee with a bit of oat milk. Wander the streets, taking in the melting pot of cultures, until you stumble upon the Elizabeth Street Garden, Mann’s favorite NYC hidden gem. Raoul’s is in the same neighborhood for dinner (“It’s so intimate”), but don’t discount a detour to midtown for shopping at Dover Street Market to work up your appetite, which Mann notes is full of “so much edge under one roof.” And if Kara Mann thinks something is edgy, you know it’s worth the trip. Crash at the “impeccable” Greenwich Hotel to end your day in Manhattan. Mann also recommends a trip to Red Hook, Brooklyn: “It’s like a little ocean village in the middle of NYC. Have a lobster roll and watch the sun set over the Statue of Liberty.”
