Okay, so it’s not strictly new – but it’s had such a great revamp that it may as well be. Equally ritzy in location (within walking distance of the Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall and 5th Avenue, and boasting sweeping vistas of Central Park), Park Lane was first developed as a hotel on so-called Billionair­e’s Row in the 1960s by – you guessed it – a billionair­e. The revamp sees a thoughtful interior renovation of this historic, post-war building. Holding on to original chandelier­s, sconces and other fixtures, but offsetting them with modern design elements, has made for a striking new look. Go for a Bloody Mary on the rooftop – 47 storeys above street level – to enjoy uninterrup­ted views over the park. parklanene­wyork | parklanene­
