New York City is Back and Better Than Ever
What’s not to love about New York City? It’s the capital of style, food, culture — you name it — and we are overjoyed that this city is coming back to life. Right at the (literal) center of it all is The Shops at Columbus Circle, which is set at the point from which all distances are measured in Manhattan. Here, you’ll find everything you could need, whether you’re headed back to the office, back to school, or back to socializing.
Plus, The Shops at Columbus Circle is convenient to some of New York’s top sites, including Lincoln Center, which is restarting this month, and Broadway, which is also opening back up. Looking for a great itinerary? Our friends at NYC & Co. have put together some incredible ideas as part of their “It’s Time for New York City” campaign, including this trip centered around our amazing neighborhood.
So as New York gets ready to welcome you back with open arms, follow this handy guide.
Back to the Office
Raise your hand if you’re tired of working from home and lounging around the house in your leisure wear. We’re all craving a lot more style in our lives and whether you’re going back to the office or just want to elevate things on your next Zoom call, fall is the perfect excuse for some wardrobe upgrades. At BOSS, the new collection includes sleek pieces that can go from work to the weekend — like a slim-fit little black dress for women and button-down shirts for men. Ted Baker London has a range of knitted dresses that have us dreaming of Manhattan’s crisp autumn days. And at Michael Kors, the Brinkley heels have been flying off the shelves.
Back in Action
It’s likely your grooming routine has also taken a backseat, and The Shops at Columbus Circle is coming to the rescue. Long & Short Barber Co is a modern take on the friendly neighborhood barber, offering cuts for men and boys, plus a classic shave. Does your beauty regimen need a lift? At Sephora, you can schedule a Full Face session to get a completely new makeup look custom-tailored to you, then head over to Aveda for some helpful hair styling tips.
Back to School
Calling all parents: The Shops at Columbus Circle is back-to-school central. Paper Source is your source for clever products like How Was Your Day? Journal, a book for kids who won’t tell you how their school day went. At Amazon Books, you’ll find a variety of boxes and cases to transform lunch into a gourmet affair. And of course, you don’t want to miss CAMP, where kids can shop for art supplies, then head upstairs to ART CAMP and get their creative juices flowing and tie-dye a T-shirt for the perfect fashion statement.
Back to Socializing
Who hasn’t missed drinks with friends? The Restaurant and Bar Collection turns every hour into a happy hour. Bar Masa just introduced a rare sake tasting cocktail that will help you understand this Japanese drink in a whole new way. Or head to the bar at Porter House Bar & Grill and order a classic cocktail like a martini. Cheers to that — and cheers to New York City.
