For those of us living in downtown Manhattan or the outer boroughs, traveling the short (but seemingly tiresome) distance up to Central Park and beyond to our fare city's shores can seem like a world away. But now, the UWS has a brand new boutique hotel that's begging for the 1, 2, 3 train ride. The Nylo New York City, which has four other locations and one more on the way, is perfectly situated on 77th and Broadway, boasting gorgeous views of the Hudson with serene terraces on two different floors. It's the perfect weekend staycation location for a walk through Central Park, a jaunt to the Natural History Museum, or some low-key shopping on the UWS. Plus, connected to the hotel are two restaurants, Serafina, and soon-to-open Red Farm...and of course Shake Shack is just a stone's throw away.
Nylo, 2178 Broadway (at 77th Street); 212-362-1100.
