The Quin is gifted with an easy glamour that seems built into its 1920s bones. What better backdrop for “The Slim Aarons Exhibition,” a lobby art show of photographs by the celebrated 20th-century photographer who made a practice of taking pictures of, as he aptly put it, “attractive people in attractive places doing attractive things?” Read more
On Thanksgiving Day 1924, employees at Macy’s Department Store dressed up in eye-catching costumes and paraded to their storied flagship store in Herald Square surrounded by floats, marching bands, live animals borrowed from Central Park Zoo — and Santa. Thanksgiving has never been the same.
If you’re among the thousands who think there’s nothing better than being in the presence of Pikachu, Sponge Bob and 2019 newcomer Astronaut Snoopy when the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade unfurls, you have choices. You can hit the pavement (the intrepid rise in the wee hours — or camp out overnight — to claim a spot along the route by at least 6.m.).

A November election, the end of daylight saving time (fall back!) and the arrival of a new Michelin Guide to New York City restaurants are excellent bellwethers.
Michelin’s red-coated 2019 edition landed yesterday, Election Day 2018. We eagerly scoured it online to see how the city’s hotel restaurants fared. With three categories of stars encompassing 76 restaurants, six were at hotels. That’s nice, but hardly news.
In 2010, the first year Overnight New York started keeping score, seven hotel restaurants made the cut, including tony, now shuttered establishments like Adour Alain Ducasse at the St. Regis, Gordon Ramsay at The London and L’Atelier de Joel Robuchon at the Four Seasons.

Overnight New York is the independent guide to New York City hotels with honest, unbiased reporting and no ties to the hotels we write about. We visit each hotel anonymously and always pay when we eat and stay. Think of Overnight New York as a best friend who susses out where you want to spend the night — and where you don’t — and tells you what’s new, what’s trending and where to meet for drinks after work, indulge in a romantic dinner or put up the in-laws.
