Passionate and intense, New York is one of the most visited cities in the world. The Pestana CR7 NY will open in the summer of 2019, with 185 super charming rooms in Times Square. If you are as excited as we are to see the new hotel, relax and keep dreaming about these 7 unforgettable experiences!
1 – Eat at Chelsea Market
It’s a huge covered market where you can try food of all kinds. It’s worth visiting its shops, events and theme parties throughout the year. There are guided tours to get to know the fabulous history of the place.
2 – Go to a Broadway Show
From classics like Chicago and the Phantom of the Opera to the timeless musicals adapted from Disney films, there’s plenty to choose from! Stay tuned to the calendar and book your tickets in advance here.
3 – Track fashion trends and shop around
Of course, in Fifth Avenue you can find lots of luxury brands, from Tiffany’s to Gucci. But if you want to shop seriously and save some money, try out New Jersey outlets (about 1 hour by bus or 30 minutes by car from Manhattan). There, you will not be charged VAT on clothing and footwear. If you go in the winter and you prefer indoor shopping, you will like The Mills at Jersey Gardens.
4 – Going up!
Seeing New York’s “top of the rock” at Rockefeller Center is a unique experience! Especially at Christmas, when there are hundreds of people skating on the ice rink and admiring the huge Christmas tree on the ground. It is open every day from 8 am to midnight (last lift goes up at 11 pm).
5 – Have a drink in Stone Street
At 5 p.m., executives leave Wall Street and come to relax here. Stone Street is the oldest paved street in the city and has become a kind of open-air bar with long tables. Who knows, you could be sitting next to the next big-time millionaire or movie star! There are many choices of beer and cocktails, burgers and BBQ, wines and pizzas.
6 – Running in Central Park
There are numerous trails, cemented or on land in the most famous urban park in the world. That’s the reason why the New York Marathon always ends in Central Park.
7 – Listen to Jazz in Blue Note
A true cultural institution of Greenwich Village, Blue Note highlights improvisation and performance of musical stars, night after night. The best days to go? Just pick your favorite: Late Night Groove from Fridays and Saturdays; Sunday brunch or Monday Night Series.
Stay at Pestana CR7!
