How To

A Model’s Guide To Doing NYC Like A Local

Jordy Murray tells us the places to be and the best people to see!

NYFW is just around the corner, so naturally we’ve started thinking about a) all the places we want to eat, and b) what to pack to fit-in with the cool kids Downtown.

But choosing places to go in a big city without a local’s recommendations (don’t forget to add yours to our ever-increasing list of global hotspots here) is like hitting the ‘I’m feeling lucky’ button on Google – you never know what chu gon’ get.

So ahead of our upcoming trip, we decided to phone-a-friend (a.k.a. model, #STREET365 superstar and all-round good-time girl Jordy Murray) for her top spots in the Big Apple, and let’s just say we were *pleasantly* surprised by her (rather unexpected) list.

See below for her recommendations on everything – including the best places to dance and drink, as well as her go-to spot to cure the hangover that’s sure to follow.

Black Flamingo or Good Room. Cielo (Chelsea) has a great sound system but I’m convinced that all the best nights happen in Brooklyn.
