Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - The Hour Glass Presents -

Par­adisal city cor­ners ... The Green­wich Ho­tel is the clas­sic down­town es­tab­lish­ment, whereas The Car­lyle pro­vides Up­town class and charm of vin­tage New York. Stylish eatery ... Norma’s at Le Parker Meri­dien. Be sure to treat your­self to the best Amer­i­can pan­cakes here. Travel essen­tials ... A cam­era, elec­tronic adapters, and of course, a good watch roll to prop­erly store your watches while trav­el­ling. Din­ing musts ... Le Coucou is a Ro­man and Wil­liams-de­signed es­tab­lish­ment, with a hand-painted mu­ral by painter Dean Barger based on the work of the 18th-cen­tury French painter Hu­bert Robert. Food here is re­fined, French-in­spired, but with a mod­ern twist. Sig­na­ture ex­pe­ri­ences ... Ded­i­cate an af­ter­noon to visit Lower Man­hat­tan to see the 9/11 Memo­rial, ex­plore the Ocu­lus, and in­dulge in many of the great restau­rants in the area, like Lo­canda Verde.
