    Dana's Picks

    Fall is my favorite time to be in New York because there is so much to do and see.  Here are the events that I look forward to…and some suggestions so you can enjoy in style.

    October – Fall Foliage
    Best Foliage (and Art) Peeping: Storm King Arts Center
    Hudson Valley - 1 Museum Rd, New Windsor, NY
    The 500-acre landscape of fields, hills, and woodlands of Storm King's sculpture garden is breathtaking in the fall.  The one-hour ride North will fly by as well, while the surrounding Hudson River Valley is exploding with color. As a bonus, you can view over 100 sculptures from leading artists of our era throughout the playfully conceived grounds.  Trust us, when you post the obligatory Instagram under Zhang Huan's Three Legged Buddha or Suspended, 1977 by Menashe Kadishman...people will think you're cultured as well.
    Bonus: For those who prefer shopping to sculpture, Woodbury Commons Premium Outlets is closeby. 

    November – NYC Marathon
    Best Carb-Loading…Before and After the Big Race: Scarpetta
    Meatpacking District, 355 W 14th St, between 7th and 8th Aves.
    Let's be honest: a 26-mile race is a really good excuse to eat a bowl of pasta…whether you're running it or not.  No excuse is needed to enjoy one of the many tremendous Italian restaurants in the city.  One of my favorites is the Spaghetti and Basil at Chef Scott Conant's Scarpetta.  As expected, this dish is both elegant and sublimely simple: just home-made spaghetti, uber-fresh tomato sauce and a sprinkle of basil.  The Marathon is November 2nd…but we'll be enjoying it well past Thanksgiving!

    Meet Dana

    Chris' Picks

    Football, Gridiron, NFL – Fall for me is Football.  Here are some ideas to enjoy the games. Go Buffalo Bills! 

    Favorite Local Sports Bar: Tonic Times Square
    Just 10 short blocks from the hotel, this upscale sports bar is a great place to watch your team any given Sunday.  Complemented with comfortable leather stools, sofas and plush booths, you will not have much trouble finding a seat.  There’s no lack of screens in this 3 level sports complex.  If you get hungry they offer an array of solid pub food, not to mention a few well-stocked bars to keep you hydrated. 

    Favorite Way To Enjoy A Game: Metlife Stadium
    New York City is home of 2 NFL teams, NY Giants and NY Jets.  When you’re visiting, why not enjoy a live game?  The Meadowlands Sports Complex is a short trek from Manhattan into New Jersey.  Reachable by many forms of transportation.  Inquire with the Concierge team if you’re interested in tickets, schedules, directions and anything else that you may need.

    Favorite Craft Beers: Valhalla
    Beer lovers and sports lovers alike, this low-key rustic tavern is the place for you.  Located in Hell’s Kitchen with-in walking distance of the Viceroy.  They have 40 beers on tap, 40 plus bottled beers and some pretty good bar food.  It’s not a sports bar, but they do have a couple TV’s above the bar which generally show the local games and the red zone if you like to follow all the scores.

    Jeanie's Picks

    Grand Banks
    Pier 25 in Battery Park
    Escape the hustle and bustle and head over to Grand Banks and grab a seat at the bar or if the bar is full snag a table along the side and enjoy a spectacular view of Manhattan and the Statue of Liberty. Wherever you sit make sure you order from their rotating selection of oysters and small bites. Be sure to visit the museum hub underneath to learn about the history of the boat… A pice advice get there before sunset, it packs up quickly.

    New York Botanical Gardens
    Only a 20 min ride on the LIRR head to the beautiful gardens located in the Bronx, the facility offers flowers and exhibitions throughout the year and Then immerse yourself in the spirit of the era with Michael Arenella and His Dreamland Orchestra, the world's premier Jazz Age dance band, specializing in the Hot Jazz of the Roaring Twenties, big band dance music, and the sophisticated sounds of swing.

    Asimina's Picks

    Look your best for Fall with some of my favorite boutiques around the city. 

    Upper East Side - 1054 3rd avenue at 63rd Street.
    This is a go-to store for a New York feel to update your wardrobe with the latest trends. It is located on the Upper East Side, a few blocks from Viceroy New York. The pricepoint is moderately expensive but well worth it…with its great selection of separates that you can put together into a new outfit without too much damage!

    Yigal Azrouel
    Upper East Side - 1011 Madison Ave. @ 78th St.
    This designer is well-known for his ultra-feminine styles and draping-designs that make the female form look fabulous! His line now includes a variety of trend-setting selections and is available in large department stores like Bloomingdales and Neiman Marcus. I prefer his Upper East Side store which is just edgy enough with its leather-lined shelves and has some select knits and jackets for men. Also check out the brand’s more casual little sister, Cut25, in Soho.

    Elie Tahari
    Soho – 417 W. Broadway
    You can’t go wrong with Elie Tahari. A well-known name designer who'll keep you looking tailored, upscale and office-ready!  The Soho boutique now has a wide selection of everything for fall: from coats to fur scarfs and my favorite chunky sweater that I've seen this season. This is a great store to find "keep-warm" basics for work and upscale everyday-wear.
