Woman & Home - - Contents -

IT’S THE IDEAL DES­TI­NA­TION FOR A BREAK WITH FRIENDS, SAY THE W&H FASH­ION AND BEAUTY TEAMS THE COOL STAY

FOR­GET MAN­HAT­TAN, THE LAT­EST NEW YORK HOTSPOT IS WILLIAMSBURG IN BROOK­LYN, JUST OVER THE RIVER FROM THE LOWER EAST SIDE. IT’S WHERE OUR FASH­ION TEAM STAYED TO SHOOT THIS MONTH’S MAIN FASH­ION STORY (SEE PAGE 26).

FROM FANCY COF­FEE SHOPS TO BEAU­TI­FUL BOUTIQUES AND COOL NEW RESTAU­RANTS, THIS AREA HAS ALL OF THE GLAM­OUR OF MAN­HAT­TAN WITH ONLY HALF AS MANY TOURISTS. IT’S A HAVEN FROM THE BRIGHT LIGHTS OF THE BIG CITY YET THOSE TIME­LESS NYC SIGHTS ARE STILL EAS­ILY AC­CES­SI­BLE BY SUBWAY. PLUS YOU DON’T NEED TO HEAD TO FIFTH AV­ENUE TO SHOP – THE MINI MALL IN WILLIAMSBURG HAS SOME GREAT VIN­TAGE BOUTIQUES, AN­TIQUES, BOOKS AND JEW­ELLERY STORES, WHERE BROWS­ING

IS ALL PART OF THE EX­PE­RI­ENCE.

THE WILLIAM VALE IN NORTH WILLIAMSBURG IS ONE OF THE CHICEST PLACES TO STAY AND HAS ENOR­MOUS ROOMS (COM­PARED WITH THE MAN­HAT­TAN HO­TELS!), ALL WITH BALCONIES OVER­LOOK­ING THOSE FA­MOUS SKYSCRAPERS. FOR THE BEST VIEWS HEAD UP TO THE ROOFTOP

BAR, WESTLIGHT, FOR AN AP­PLE MAR­TINI AT SUN­SET. THE HO­TEL RESTAU­RANT, LEUCA, IS IN­SPIRED BY THE AREA’S ITAL­IAN HER­ITAGE AND THERE’S MISTER DIPS (AN AIRSTREAM) ON SITE FOR AN ALL-AMER­I­CAN BURGER.

FOR A REAL Sex and the City MO­MENT, THERE’S ALSO NYC’S LONG­EST OUT­DOOR POOL TO LOUNGE AROUND. PER­FECT FOR A GIRLY BREAK TO RE­MEM­BER.

THE COST THE WILLIAM VALE (THEWILLIAMVALE.COM) HAS DOU­BLE ROOMS FROM £255 PER NIGHT (£127.50PP).
