Iconic new york hotel.
Such a beautiful cathedral in the middle of manhattan on 5th Avenue. Was recently renovated and looks brand new from the outside.
This is where the coffee shop was in the Friends sitcom
Astor place which is right next to the east village is such a fun area with bars, restaurants interspersed with NY university dormitories.
Walk around the adjacent saint-marks street to see all the funky restaurants and shops.
