Have some more outdoor family or solo fun in any season at Bryant Park. Take the entire troop ice skating at the rink at Bryant Park’s Winter Park during wintry months and enjoy some warm cocoa at Public Fare. In the warmer-weather months, take the kids to story time, treat yourself to a yoga or tai chi class, or challenge a stranger to a game of ping-pong. Music performances, magic shows, and puppet shows happen regularly at the park, offering entertainment for just about every age or interest. The park hosts more than 1,000 events and special activities every year, so there’s never a shortage of interesting outdoor experiences to discover within walking distance from home.

Midtown Manhattan Apartments

Exotic. Rich. Refined. Three words that summarize the Manhattan View at MiMA experience. Manhattan View—a set of luxury condominiums for sale—is the bejeweled crown comprising the top 13 floors of the glass MiMA tower in Midtown Manhattan, towering 500 feet above West 42nd Street. Each unit offers floor-to-ceiling views of the city skyline and the Hudson River, which inspired lead interior designer Jamie Drake in his approach to outfitting each residence.


“With icons of the city sparkling and glittering outside every window, I wanted to bring that same excitement and elegance inside,” Drake told W42ST Magazine. “Each and every residence has its own uniquely stunning view and my design for the interiors celebrates that.”


Exciting and elegant, indeed. Spa-inspired bathrooms feature polished Carrara marble floors and Calacatta marble showers. The lacquer gloss of the kitchen cabinets captures the sparkle of the city outside while oak plank flooring throughout each unit adds a warm, inviting vibe for both residents and guests. “Smart home” automation allows you to control the evening’s playlist, the mood lighting, and room temperature from a touch of your phone for the ideal experience of effortless luxury.


While so many “icons of the city” shine through the windows, Manhattan View at MiMA is itself becoming iconic. “MiMA”—the name of the glass tower—is now a go-to moniker for Midtown Manhattan. And it is perfectly fitting, as MiMA is the centerpiece of both Midtown and Manhattan, near the nightlife, the dining destinations, and theatres that make Manhattan a magical place.

New Luxury Rentals at 555Ten

Your favorite neighborhood is about to get even more interesting. The upcoming luxury Midtown Manhattan apartment building 555TEN is all about the amenities. Once complete, the 52-story building will have its own rooftop deck and pool, a yoga studio, children’s playroom, indoor bike storage, and a private club room for residents. A covered dog park offers the ideal scenario for canines and their families—an outdoor space for dogs that stays dry even during inclement weather.


With a prime location—555 10th Avenue—your home is close to all the theatrical action on and off Broadway. Just a brief walk away, Playwrights Horizons offers six productions annually. Six works produced here have earned the Pulitzer Prize, so it’s no small wonder that The New York Times’ Charles Isherwood calls Playwrights Horizons “a mainstay of off-Broadway.” Take in a performance of Dan LeFranc’s Rancho Viejo—about a failing marriage that impacts the lives of the couple’s parents and community many miles away—or Adam Bock’s A Life—a show featuring David Hyde Pierce as a lonely man who turns to astrology for answers to his life’s toughest question.


Steps away, Theatre Row offers The United Solo Theatre Festival—a months-long event that offers more than 100 theatrical performances, each featuring only one person on stage. This year’s series welcomes performers from eighteen countries spanning six continents. Take the entire family to Acorn Theatre at Theatre Row for the critically acclaimed The Very Hungry Caterpillar Show, a puppet-based adaptation of four children’s stories by Eric Carle. These are only a few of the theatrical options in the neighborhood, so you’ll never have to travel far to get your fill of stage-based satisfaction.

Fish for stingray, halibut, or sand sharks right from the pier or go after the big one on a chartered fishing trip. Grab your surfboard (or rent one) and tame the waves yourself. The pier area is one of the best in the region for surfing; so much so that it hosts regular surfing competitions. For a more tranquil twist on surfing, rent a stand-up paddleboard and paddle your way around the Oceanside Harbor.


Choose from Oceanside’s many bike trails to plan the perfect two-wheeled adventure or get in your daily dose of cardio. Bike paths are marked to note “easy” through “advanced” workout levels, allowing you to tailor your ride to your exercise goals for the day.


When the weather isn’t cooperative enough for outdoor activities, take in a performance by the Oceanside Theatre Company or visit the art gallery in the lobby of the company’s Sunshine Brooks Theatre. Witness a performance of Sarah Ruhl’s Eurydice, dubbed by The New York Times as “a love letter to the world,” or the Pulitzer Prize-winning Picnic by William Inge.  


Visit the Oceanside Museum of Art to take in exhibits from famed artists such as San Diego’s own Marjorie Nodelman, who helped launched the Gaslamp Quarter art scene. Participate in a tabletop looming workshop or learn about Italian frescoes in one of the museum’s monthly offerings. Sign your young budding artist up for a birthday party at the museum for an event that will inspire her/his creative spirits for weeks to come.

Take a class to literally learn the ropes of rock climbing, or visit the on-site shop to purchase your own gear for adventures beyond the walls.


Now that you’ve worked up an appetite, it’s time to eat. Head over to Townhouse Bar & Grill for chicken piccata, avocado bruschetta, or steak tacos, or enjoy your favorite gastropub fare at Propaganda. Experience pub classics such as a pulled pork sandwich or barbecue meatball skewers, or try the spicy lemongrass sausage sandwich for something a little different.

Grab some nachos, a classic Chicago dog, or a margarita at the beach restaurant while remaining in your beach attire.

Spend an evening showing friends a stunning view of Chicago after dark by visiting the Signature Restaurant or Signature Lounge, on the 95th and 96th floors of the John Hancock Center. The restaurant offers delectable delights such as lamb or pork chops, surf and turf, or a seafood tower with lobster, oysters, shrimp, and crab legs. Venture up to the lounge to indulge in lighter fare like a Mediterranean platter or a margherita pizza or to enjoy drinks and a shared creme brulee or blueberry cheesecake for dessert.

History buffs will appreciate Newberry Library, which is not your average neighborhood library. Newberry houses significant collections of documents and books dating back centuries. Inspect original Renaissance music manuscripts or read a copy of Lewis and Clark’s expedition journal with notes by Thomas Jefferson penned in the margins. The library also has nearly 100,000 vintage and ancient works dedicated to the history of books and printing, including some items from as far back as the 1400s. Newberry also has the perennial collection of works about Chicago and Midwest history, for those who want to delve deeper into the region’s origins.

Witness or even take part in the Lady Jam, the theatre’s monthly “everyone-gets-to-perform” improv night just for females. Appreciate the art and athleticism of dance at Joyce Theater, which offers performances nearly every night.
