Girlie A MINI BREAK AWAITS YOU AND YOUR FRIENDS, WHETHER YOU’RE SERIAL SHOPPERS, COCKTAIL CONNOISSEURS OR CULTURE VULTURES getaways NEW YORK Why it’s a hotspot The incredible shops, boutiques, not to mention an uber-cool atmosphere, makes the Big Apple the perfect place for any stylish girl to visit. Stay ahead of the fashion pack and enjoy the ultimate shoppers’ paradise. THE SHOPPING BREAK Where to shop The Meatpacking District around 14th Street for serious spending – think Stella McCartney and Alexander McQueen. Stroll around the streets of Greenwich Village and SoHo for independent boutiques and rare vintage treasures. Shopping opportunities are endless on Fifth Avenue, with the famous Saks, Louis Vuitton and Tiffany in close proximity. And no trip to New York would be complete without a visit to the popular huge department store, Bloomingdale’s, on Third Avenue. Where to stay Treat yourselves to a couple of nights at The New York Marriott Marquis Hotel in the heart of Times Square. It has up-to-date, spacious rooms, and boasts six restaurants and lounges to relax 274 | JUNE 2013 in after a hard day of shopping. Alternatively, 70 Park Avenue Hotel is a boutique hotel offering a haven of quiet luxury – and is walking distance from Fifth Avenue. Where to party Get on the cocktails and drink in the spectacular skyline on the rooftop of Above 6. Situated high above the Columbus Circle, the stylish hangout comes into its own during the summer. Be sure to try the cool cava-based concoction, Hummingbird while listening to some up-beat tunes. Cellar Bar, which is located between Fifth and Sixth Avenues, delivers flavoursome cocktails in funky Mediterraneanstyle surroundings. Have a boogie around your handbags on the fabulous separate dance floor. Don’t miss! Take a picnic in Prospect Park in Brooklyn – designed by the same people as Central Park, but with fewer tourists – it’s where the real New Yorkers go to chill out. How to get there Flights to New York with BA start from £369 return during the first weekend in June. Prices may vary. Carol says... ‘I love so many different destinations and don’t like going back to the same place but, if I had to pick, then California and the Italian lakes are just amazing.’
