My family loves spending time at Ellington in the Park. A sweet, hidden gem; it allows both my husband and myself to play alongside the kids in the sand and swings with our children. Throw in a gentle breeze and mild temps and we have a truly pleasurable outing in the city.

After closing up the boutique some nights, my husband and I enjoy Hudson Yards Grill for a date night out. This is Chef Michael Lomonaco’s latest restaurant. The cocktails are yummy and so is the ambience. Offering a modern twist on old favorites, we unwind with an end of day “check-in” and cozy appetizers.
