The Leisure Traveler
A Suggested Itinerary
Dear Leisure Traveler,
Welcome to Your Day in New York
No agenda, no problem. There are few things better than traveling at your leisure. It offers you the ability to move at your speed, be it fast or slow, and get involved with activities of particular interest to you. Planning a trip with friends, we can suggest things to do for the whole group.
In this suggested itinerary we have included a place to stay and three activities to complete which will take you around the popular Lower Manhattan Neighborhood of Greenwich Village.
The Walker Hotel
Inspired by the Georgian revival towers found on New York’s famed Fifth Avenue of the 1920’s, guests arrive curbside, greeted by a beautifully designed façade featuring copper clad bay windows, cast stone trim and restoration antique glass illuminated by gas lanterns reminiscent of the early days of Greenwich Village.
2:00 pm - Walk the Line
"The High Line is a public park built on a historic freight rail line elevated above the streets on Manhattan's West Side. It runs from Gansevoort Street in the Meatpacking District to West 34th Street, between 10th and 12th Avenues. The High Line is a public park built on a 1.45-mile-long (2.3 km) elevated rail structure running from Gansevoort Street to West 34th Street on Manhattan's West Side. Previously, the High Line was a freight rail line, in operation from 1934 to 1980
4:00 pm → Stroll in the Park
Washington Square Park
This park offers a real slice of life in the City. A mix of students, locals, and tourists everyone blends in. Great place to relax, explore, people watch, listen to street music. Relax in the fountain. Home to New York University and an icon destination in New York City. Famed for its fountain and arch, and for marking the end of fifth avenue, Washington Square Park is a beautiful destination to see and experience true local New York City culture.
6:00 pm → Catch a Film
@ The Angelika Theatre
Popular venue for new indie & foreign films, shown on 5 screens, with on-premises cafe. Perfect to catch a flick on a weekday evening if you work in the area. There is no stadium seating so it's best to arrive early.
8:30 pm → Enjoy Dinner
@La Lanterna Di Vittorio
Fancy Italian. If it isn’t Mario Batali and Joe Bastianich’s worldwide reputation that brings you to Babbo, then it’s the always flowing carafes of wine, or the superlative sweetbreads, tripe, and fresh pasta. It’s Babbo, after all, that made the NYC restaurant scene what it is today: a kooky juxtaposition of fine dining, coupled with bar food and a soundtrack of rock music -- a move that in 1998 was entirely unheard of, yet now has become standard practice.
10:30 pm - Fun & Games
Welcome to Society Billiards + Bar NYC, New York's most upscale sports bar. Play pool or host a private party in New York City's newest pool and darts sports bar. An underground pool hall with 19 billiards tables, a full bar, leagues & dozens of TVs.
But it's only the beginning.
While your trip may have come to an end, New York City offers a never ending list of things to do and experiences to be had.
