Autumn in New York | Divine Destinations


Of course, curating the coasts through the eyes of leading, local tastemakers is kind of the name of our game, but we always love when someone prompts us for our own recommendations too– especially when that “someone” is Vanessa Traina’s implausibly chic bi-coastal boutique, Apartment by The Line. The NY-LA shop is known for its well-edited selection of living– it’s not just clothing, but bath and body, home décor and art, too. Ingeniously, in both cities, the stores are set up as apartments (hence the moniker) meaning stocked clothing is hanging in a closet, kitchenware sits atop a fully staged countertop, and the assorted rugs, sofas, chairs and other accents are displayed as they would be in a (superbly decorated) living room. Everything in the space is for sale, just like any store, but only here will you look at a coat rack and see a lifestyle– it’s an aspirational one for sure, but wander through the Apartment and it’s impossible not to feel the attention to detail that went into selecting every piece–waste basket and dust pan included. Indeed, it’s just the sort of curation we aim to provide in editing our cities too: special, one-of-a-kind tidbits that you won’t find anywhere else. So, in an exclusive interview for Apartment by The Line, our Editorial Director, Alexandria Geisler revealed her top five destinations to visit in New York this fall. We’ve included three of them here, along with Geisler’s quotes, but you can find the full story on The Line.


1 | The Met Breuer, Upper East Side
“The Metropolitan Museum of Art opened it’s modern and contemporary art annex, The Met Breuer, this past spring, and I’m especially enamored with its current exhibit, In The Beginning, featuring the early work of one of my all-time favorite photographers, Diane Arbus. The museum is just one block from Central Park so a visit to the show, followed by a walk through the crimson-and-orange-colored park feels like the perfect autumn ode to both artist and city.” (MAP IT)


2 | King, South Village
“I’m getting married in Provence next June, so there may be some sentimental value here, but the new Provençal-style restaurant, King, was one of the fall openings I was most looking forward to. It’s a cozy space with Matisse-like branding, white-washed brick, and Thonet cane chairs. The seasonal menu changes daily, but its beautiful fish stew with lobster, clams and fluke is a kitchen staple for good reason.” (MAP IT)


3 | Glenmere Mansion, Chester, NY
“I’m almost hesitant to recommend it because it’s our little slice of quiet paradise, but we discovered the Glenmere a few years ago when looking for a weekend getaway not too far from the city. The property is only about an hour-and-a-half drive from Manhattan, though spend just one night there and I promise you’ll feel worlds away. The staff is so kind, the décor is exquisite, and the on-site spa is absolutely lovely. The hotel restaurant is nice, but I’d recommend venturing off property to the Grange, an unassuming, mom-and-pop restaurant with some of the best farm-to-table food I’ve ever had.” (MAP IT) CP
