Staff FAVOURITES

 

  • Jonathan Crook - General Manager

    The largest Chinatown in the United States and the largest concentration of Chinese in the Western Hemisphere is a tightly packed yet sprawling neighbourhood offering visitors and locals an exciting variety of restaurants, fruit and fish markets and shops filled with curious knick-knacks and sweets on its winding, crowded streets. “Walking through Chinatown with my family to our favourite dim sum restaurant, Dim Sum Go Go, always makes us happy with its relaxed atmosphere and seemingly endless variety of dim sum,” says Crook. “The chef has developed a quirky, appealing menu that plays Western variations on Chinese themes.”

  • Alpan Keskin - Resident Manager

    Opened to the public in May 2013, this bike share system has proven to be a unique, easy and affordable option for quick, spontaneous trips around New York City. Thousands of Citibikes can be rented at countless stations around New York, each station complete with a touchscreen kiosk, a map of the service area and surrounding neighbourhood and a docking system that releases bikes for rental with a card or key. “It’s the best way to explore the city,” says Keskin. “When riding along the Westside Highway bike path I like to stop by Scoop for clothing, exploring Perry Street, then returning the Citibike to walk Bleeker Street to discover antique and vintage stores.”

    Citibikes are available across Manhattan, 24/7, 365 days a year.
