3 Addresses That You Cannot Miss in NYC

The View Hunters would like to warn you: these three addresses are not practical. They're poetic, curious and delicious. They're secret addresses that New Yorkers pass off discreetly in the back of a yellow cab. So this stays between us, right?



1. Treat yourself to a cocktail in a clandestine bar: you'd never think to look behind the mundane hot-dog restaurant that hides it. How do you get in? From a secret passage that will lead you to a mysterious hostess at the other end.
Please Don't Tell
113 Saint Marks Place
New York, NY 10009


2. Cookie experts all agree: the cookies at Levain Bakery (XXL in size) are the best. The proof? Right after arriving at JFK airport, some will scramble to get a whiff of the sumptuous smell of chocolate that wafts from the bakery all day long.
Levain Bakery
167 West 74th Street
New York, NY 10023


3. Read in a secret café: first, they've got the best brownies in the area. Second, you can hang here all day and no one will say a word. Third, you'll lose yourself in the hundreds of books in their boutique. And if you're next flight is to Paris, you can brush up your Français downstairs in the French section.
Bookstore Café
126 Crosby Street
New York, NY 10012

日本へようこそ*

* "Welcome to Japan" in Japanese
And believe us, if you fly to this side of Asia there are a few things you'll want to bring back in your suitcase. Like these 3 Nipponese traditions:



Fukubukuro
They're goody bags that can be found everywhere in January, containing cute items on sale. Precious jewellery, gadgets, trinkets and electronics... anything could be inside, fate decides the rest.

The baths
All the Japanese take very, very long baths every day. It's forbidden to break this rule under penalty of... missing out on a delicious moment.

Lunch under a cherry tree
At Hanami, all the employees eat lunch under a cherry tree in bloom. Their newest hire is in charge of arriving first to find the prettiest flower and to keep it safe for the next 1,000 years. No big. Bon appétit !
