Carey Mulligan’s rendition of ‘New York, New York’ perfectly encapsulates how I feel about the city. Enchanting and seductive, but by turns depressing and diabolical. My latest visits have been better, however, as I’ve learned to stick to better hotels and nicer locations. For this birthday weekend, I’m hoping to make it magical again, and nothing makes New York more magical than a night in a fine hotel, accented by a Broadway show.
With accommodations by 70 Park Hotel (Kimpton properties have never let me down) and dining by Tavern on the Green and The NoMad, I’ve already planned out places certain to satisfy. A Broadway stop for the final performance of ‘Bullets Over Broadway’ will round out the fun.
This has been a summer bookended by Broadway, from ‘Mothers & Sons‘ to “The Bridges of Madison County‘, from ‘Hedwig and the Angry Inch‘ to ‘Here Lies Love‘ (even if the latter is technically Off-Broadway.) We’ll see how ‘Bullets’ stacks up against those other powerhouse productions. All I want is a spot of shopping on Madison, by way of Tom Ford, and I’ll be a happy birthday boy.Back to Blog
