A Chic Instagram Guide To Manhattan

Spotted: You, roaming around the Upper East Side, looking utterly confused if I do say so myself. Need a little help finding the hotspots around the chicest parts of Manhattan? No problem. That’s a secret I’ll definitely tell. We know you’ll love these Instagram-worthy spots in the Big Apple.

XOXO, Siren.

Metropolitan Museum of Art

Start your journey at the steps of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The gorgeous Beaux-Arts building is only the beginning of the masterpieces found within. Once you’ve snapped a picture on the iconic Met steps or by the fountains, head on inside and take in all the incredible collections the museum has to offer.

Lotte New York Palace

Take a cab to 455 Madison Avenue, the famous Lotte New York Palace. Head into Villard for one of the best brunches you’ll ever have or book a treatment at the hotel’s world-class spa. Maybe your very own Chuck Bass is waiting for you with a dirty martini at the hotel lobby bar, Trouble’s Trust.

Shops on Madison Ave

Once you’re nice and relaxed, take a stroll down Madison Avenue for a window shopping session or pop into Céline and finally buy that bag you’ve been dreaming of. Commemorate the moment with a photo of the picturesque street lined with luxury stores and delicate building facades.

NoMo Soho

Ready for dinner? NoMo SoHo has you covered. Take your photo under the leafy arc before enjoying a delicious meal. We recommend the Kale Salad and Pappardelle pasta.

Top of the Rock

Nothing says chic like Rockafeller and there is no better place to catch the sunset than at the Top of the Rock. The whole city is laid out in front of you, a concrete playground waiting for you to explore.

Central Park

Lunch at the Boathouse, a stroll through the tree-lined path, feeding the ducks at The Pond in Central Park. A day in the life of Blair Waldorf and the perfect place to capture an enviable Instagram photo.

Sarabeth’s

You can’t spell chic without b-r-u-n-c-h. Head to Sarabeth’s Central Park South for a mouthwatering late Sunday morning meal. Indulge in the Lemon & Ricotta Pancakes or the Toasted Coconut Waffles. More of a savoury person? How does Classic Eggs Benedict or Vegetable Frittata sound?
