“He was as tough and romantic as the city he loved. Behind his black-rimmed glasses was the coiled sexual power of a jungle cat. Oh, I love this. New York was his town, and it always would be.” Manhattan, Woody Allen
If you’ve been taking a gander at our blog, you’ll notice that we’ve introduced to you a new, weirdly discreet honeymoon destination: New York. We’ve partnered with stellar, one-of-a-kind vendors to offer you trips that manifest our dream urban getaway. In this article we’ll focus on New York’s biggest hit song: Manhattan.
First, we have to ask…have you ever been to the Statue of Liberty? We hadn’t, but learned through Tribeca Sailing that it is painlessly accessible by quaint, romantic sailboat. Why join fifty other tourists when you could have your own? David, the skipper, has completely refurbished Tara, one of the finest fiberglass sailing boats ever created. Bring a picnic onboard, and grow enamored of the NYC skyline in all its divine subtlety.
We also have to take a moment and discuss the cupcake situation happening in New York right now. As most of us sugar-addicts know, the cupcake became massively popular thanks to Magnolia Bakery. Well, sure enough, the city now has enough eclectic bakeries to create a cupcake crawl (yes, you heard us). With our sweetest new vendor, Sugartooth Tours, you will visit seven or eight different cupcake shops, each with their own story. One cupcake might be infused with green tea and mochi, while another may arrive in an actual cup. Lastly, you will end at a shop that pairs desserts with wine (win). Sugartooth transcends the trend and goes right for the gut and heart. The most soulful cupcake tour that ever was.
After you’re done stuffing your face with cupcakes, obviously it’s time to go shopping, right? Well, no trip to New York City would be complete without a tour of the Garment District or the advice of a chic personal shopper. Seek will help you navigate through all of the hippest hidden shops and fashion industry secret spots to search for the perfect outfit.
After window shopping and walking through Macy’s Herald Square, you’ll pop into fabric stores and, with expert assistance, compile materials for an outfit of your own design–you’re basically starring in your own episode of Project Runway. If you’ve ever wanted to discover the inner workings of this world, Seek is your key to uncovering the ever-changing treasure that is fashion.
And don’t even get us started on the people-watching in New York (one of our favorite things to do). We could sit at a café staring at the cupcake-loving fashionistas of NoLiTa allll day long. You can thank us when you come back rejuvenated, educated, satiated & bedazzled! We kissed NY, and we liked it. So cheers. To New York.
