CEO & Founder's, Kate Cervini, home base was in the Lower East Side for 10 years so who better to tell you where to go, what to see, and what to eat. She’s here to provide her top must-see NYC spots whether you are a first time or frequent visitor.
New York City stands as a testament to the amalgamation of cultures, lifestyles, and histories. This sprawling metropolis is not just a city; it's a mosaic of neighborhoods, each with its unique flavor, character, and charm. As you traverse its streets, you'll find yourself wandering through a kaleidoscope of experiences, from the iconic skyscrapers of Manhattan to the tree-lined avenues of Brooklyn, and the historic enclaves of Queens to the cultural hubs of the Bronx and Staten Island. New York City's neighborhoods are more than just geographical divisions; they are living, breathing entities, each telling a story of the people who have called them home for generations. Join us on a journey through this extraordinary cityscape, where every corner turned reveals a new chapter in the ever-evolving tale of New York City.

RESTAURANT - Fish Cheeks
One of Kate's favorite cuisines is Thai, so when it comes to eating dinner in New York she heads to her favorite spots, Fish Cheeks - an authentic thai seafood and family style restaurant. You won't find a pad thai on the menu, but not to worry you tastebuds will be in overdrive while you indulge in the steamed fish, crab fried rice, and vegan green curry, just to name some of the favorites.
BARS - Dante, Fanelli's
Both are great for a good dirty martini in downtown NYC.
