The Plaza Hotel has always been a playground for the rich, famous, and blue blooded. Hosting everyone (and everything) from F. Scott and Zelda, to The Beatles, to Truman Capote's legendary Black and White Ball, our favorite uptown jaunt has seen it all. A glamorous throwback to NYC's gilded past, The Plaza has nevertheless remained a favorite of the social set looking to enjoy the finer things. Luckily for us, there are plenty of ways to enjoy a day at this Manhattan must.
