What’s good in the ‘hood? Each week, we ask an Attaché for their fave five neighborhood picks.

Naomi Thomas, TOWN Upper East Side Attaché

The Whitney
954 Madison Avenue between 74th and 75th Streets
From the Biennial to the current Jeff Koons exhibit, The Whitney embodies a diverse and progressive energy that is really refreshing. I’m taking full advantage keeping in mind that downtown will be its home come Spring 2015.

The Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir
Central Park between 86th and 96th Street
A beautiful place to go for a jog and release stress with breathtaking panoramic views of the sunset from all angles. 

Koffeecake Corner
1269 Lexington Avenue between 85th and 86th Street
Koffeecake Corner’s Nutella cream hot chocolate and white chocolate blueberry muffins are life changing.

244 East 79th Street between Second and Third Avenues
This ultra-cozy rustic wine bar offers the perfect respite from the buzz of the city streets. The roasted fig dish with prosciutto di Parma doesn’t hurt either. 

Barneys New York
660 Madison Avenue at 61st Street
One of the city’s most iconic department stores, Barneys is a decadent walk through the lap of luxury from beginning to end. The merchandising is unlike anywhere else and embodies the pulse of NYC’s fashion scene.
