Uncommon New York

There’s A Reason It’s Known As The City That Never Sleeps

The action never stops in New York City, and let’s be honest, that’s the essence of the city’s appeal. The pace, the people, the endless opportunities for discovery; it's a place where anything is possible, and anything could happen, at anytime.

It's also a city of extremes: the most iconic skyline, the world's most extensive subterranean rail network; the highest number of coffee shops per capita; the greatest concentration of theaters in the world. The best burger. It's a destination that delights visitors and the most cynical of New Yorkers with countless surprises at every turn.

From hedonistic wellness experiences and active outdoor pursuits, to the apex of arts and culture, style and design, food and drink, explore the New York that speaks to you with our insider’s guide to the Big Apple.

Brooklyn Bridge Park

With all of Manhattan’s wonders, Ignazio Cipriani appreciates the special beauty of Brooklyn Bridge Park (334 Furman St., Brooklyn; +1-718-222-9939) with his son on weekends. Landscape architect Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates has created a remarkable waterfront of green spaces on 85 acres of former vacant industrial sites and abandoned piers, enlivened with numerous children’s playgrounds, tranquil gardens, playing fields, salt marshes, and promenades with vistas of ever-changing skylines. An array of sounds—horns of ferry boats, squawks of gulls, barks of dogs socializing in dog runs—fill the air, adding to the vibrant scene. Unique and special to the park, is Jane’s Carousel (Old Dock St., Brooklyn; +1-718-222-2502) a lovingly restored 1922 merry-go-round that encompasses the vintage and modern in an exceptional and enduring manner: 48 finely carved, vividly colored horses, and two lavish chariots housed in a transparent pavilion, designed by French architect Jean Nouvel. Louvered, acrylic panels open and close according to the weather, so that children—and adults—can enjoy Jane’s Carousel, a simple and timeless pleasure, year-round.
