NYC Living: April
Updated: Jun 5, 2022
This past month was filled with birthday parties, eating out a lot and taking an infinite amount of photos of florals (groundbreaking). After writing out everything I've done, eaten and drank, I'm a little scared to look at my bank account 😆🤭 .
The Morgan Library & Museum: Located at 225 Madison Avenue at 36th Street, New York, NY 10016
My mom recently read The Personal Librarian (where this book is based off of), and asked if I wanted to go to this library with her. I honestly hadn't even heard of this library until she mentioned it. Though this library and museum is very small in comparison to some of the bigger museums in Manhattan, it is equally as breathtaking. The actual library (aka my favorite part) is like a scene taken from Beauty & the Beast. Just countless rows and shelves of books everywhere you look.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art: Located at 1000 5th Ave, New York, NY 10028
Did you know that the MET holds live music and happy hour events on Fridays and Saturdays? I didn't either, until I recently read about it in a newsletter. Between 5-9pm on Fridays and Saturdays, you can listen to a beautiful string quartette and sip on champagne. The location varies by week within the museum, so you can get more information about it here. It's only happening for a couple more weeks, so if you're wanting to try something new for a date night or go with friends, I highly recommend adding it to your weekend to-do list!
You can also check out the current exhibits going on here.
The Music Man Broadway Show: Located at the Winter Garden Theatre - 1634 Broadway, New York, NY 10019
I haven't been to a Broadway show since pre pandemic, so it was so nice to watch a live show again! Hugh Jackman and Sutton Foster are currently starring in this fun, American-filled show. You can check out other Broadway shows currently live here.
Tutto il Giorno: Located at 16 Main St, Sag Harbor, NY 11963
I ate here for lunch for my birthday back in the fall and was very excited to go back again. It's definitely not a budget-friendly place, but if you're ok with splurging on cocktails and higher end American/Seafood, I would recommend this place a hundred times over. The service, vibe and location make you feel like you're in an elegant and trendy living room/backyard of a beautiful beach home without coming off as too intimidating.
Wölffer Estate Vineyard: Located at 139 Sagg Rd, Sagaponack, NY 11962
If you're a Summer in a Bottle wine lover, you'll love this vineyard. I've only ever been to The Wine Stand on the vineyard (which is more low key/informal but still a good time), so being in the main part where the tastings are was a first. The building was giving me Mediterranean meets Bachelorette vibes and it was gorgeous.
