Geographically, we live in one of the smallest cities, but culturally, there is more to eat, see, and do in these 468 square miles than any other place in the nation.

With 5 boroughs and countless neighborhoods, it's easy to get overwhelmed and fall into the tourist traps of the city from Times Square to the Statue of Liberty. When you want to see the New York that inspired Jay Z and Frank Sinatra to sing, you need an insider's advice. Look no further. We've put together a collection of the places and spaces of a New Yorker's New York!

While future visitors of The Montauk Beach House won't notice it, this month old hub were faced with a speed bump upon inspection on July 26th.

While these hotel features were never registered upon the venue's opening, it doesn't seem this mishap will hurt the Hampton's newest party spot at all this summer. More»

The Hamilton, a Clyde's Group restaurant, has been open nonstop since its celebrated opening on December 18 (with the exception of Christmas) and has had a thick stream of customers that entire time, filling many of the seats in the sprawling 37,000-sq. foot restaurant.
"Business is good, we have had a lot of late night customers," Maureen Hirsch of Clyde's Group told Guest of a Guest. The restaurant was first made famous for being open 24 hours. "It's hard to staff the midnight shift, and it was stressful. We have 3-6 shows a week in Hamilton Live and diners on the upper levels. We had to keep cleaning the restaurant through the night, and with high turnover of employees [a common theme in the hospitality industry] it was hard to keep schedules up. It was also difficult for managers to take time off." More»
