72 hours in NY with Regina Parti | Brand Manager of Aria Hotel BudapestPublished: July 9th, 2019
World cities inspire and energize me in an incredible way. That’s why I fly often to my BFF of all destinations: New York City! About one month ago, I returned to the Big Apple. Not a long visit but long enough do a few things — explore hidden treasures, meet up with my friends and colleagues from Library Hotel Collection.
Williamsburg: NYC’s hippest neighbourhood
Known for its indie music and party scene, the ’Burg always offers a good reason to cross the East River and check out its delights. Brooklyn’s epicenter of cool has no shortage of indie coffee and tea shops, quick and delicious lunchtime eats, and a host of other meet-up worthy destinations.
Brand New York: High Line and Hudson Yards
Stretching 1.45 miles through the Meatpacking District and Chelsea along the west side of Manhattan, the High Line is one of New York’s newest—and most innovative—green spaces. Opened to the public in 2009, this wonderfully wild green pathway is flanked by various plant species, and features art installations, colorful murals, viewing platforms that jut out over city corners, incredible panoramas of the neighboring architecture, as well as food and drink vendors.
Play It Loud: Instruments of Rock & Roll Exhibiton at MET
Play It Loud celebrates the musical instruments that gave rock and roll its signature sound. The first major exhibition in an art museum dedicated entirely to the iconic instruments of rock and roll will go on view at The Metropolitan Museum of Art beginning April 8, 2019. The exhibition will travel to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in November 2019. Play It Loud will explore how musicians embraced and advanced emerging technologies; the phenomenon of the “Guitar Gods”; the crafting of a visual identity through the use of instruments.
In Living Color: The 2018 Kobra Street Art
There is now a massive mural illustrating the fallen musicians in the so-called “27 Club.” These musicians – Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Kurt Cobain and Amy Winehouse – belong to the infamous “27 Club,” a cultural meme highlighting those famous rockstars who died at age 27, most often as a result of drug abuse and suicide. Now, these tragic pop icons are the subjects of a brand-new mural on the Lower East Side by in-demand street artist Kobra.
