My NY: Charlotte Ronson’s Awesome NYC Itinerary

With a father like real estate mogul Laurence Ronson, a hot mama like Ann Dexter-Jones, and siblings that include Samantha and Mark Ronson, and Annabelle Dexter-Jones, you'd hardly expect Charlotte Ronson to be a wallflower. And while talent runs in her veins, there was no guarantee that she wouldn't turn out to be like a clutch of other dynastic duds. Luckily, she's proven to be just as hard-working as the rest of her bi-coastal clan, turning internships with Bazaar, Rolling Stone, and Cynthia Rowley into an eponymous fashion house that's now a worldwide phenomenon. So, it's no wonder that we were keen on tapping Ronson for her best-loved NYC spots. From snow leopards to illicit block parties, these are five Charlotte-approved destinations you won't want to miss.

Here's Charlotte's must-stop NYC itinerary—we guarantee it's one awesome adventure:

1. Central Park Zoo: " I love [The Central Park Zoo because snow leopards aren't just for tourists."

850 5th Avenue (at 64th Street); 212-439-6500

2. Brooklyn Bowl: "I went to hear my sister, Samantha, spin there, and we had one of the best nights ever!!"

61 Wythe Avenue (near North 11th Street); Brooklyn; 718-963-3369

3. Gavin Brown Gallery: "It's fun to discover new established artists in a more intimate setting like this one."

650 Greenwich Street (at Leroy Street); 212-627-5258

4. The Bowery Hotel: "It's like Hotel California—'you can check out anytime you like, but you can never leave'.'"

335 Bowery (between East 3rd and East 2nd streets); 212-505-9100

5. East Village Radio: "My brother has a weekly radio show that's known to get shut down for turning into a block party. His show is every Friday from 8-10 p.m."
191 1st Avenue (between East 1st and East 2nd streets); 212-420-5908
