In the Time Flies Department: It seems like only yesterday that New York’s Meatpacking District was transformed into a destination hotspot but, in fact, it’s been 17 years since the iconic Gansevoort Meatpacking Hotel flung open its doors, helping to make the neighborhood one of the most highly trafficked areas in the city. Today, as the city reopens after COVID-19 pandemic shutdowns, Gansevoort Meatpacking is once again fueling the neighborhood’s renaissance with a multimillion dollar rebrand and top-to-bottom renovations. Offerings include 186 renovated guestrooms; 1,700 square-foot reimagined lobby with extensive art program; the MIRROR, an interactive gym device in every guest room; multiple food and beverage venues including a sprawling European cafe, Mediterranean restaurant, and basement karaoke and bowling bar (coming in 2022); 45 sq ft heated outdoor pool; pop-up omakase sushi bar at the Gansevoort Rooftop; reimagined penthouse in partnership with Italian furniture designer Poliform; and more. Rates from $535. 212-206-6700

As we inch our way out of the pandemic that left us essentially grounded for seventeen months, we’re suddenly acutely aware of just how much we have missed our regular trips to the great Continent of Europe. (Yes, yes – first world problems, we know.) But many who feel the same way are actually not quite ready for the rigors of post-COVID intercontinental travel just yet – and so we’re left to satisfy our Europhilia by, say, taking in the old Dutch masterpieces at the Met’s In Praise of Painting exhibition, or binging on episodes of the buzzy French comedy Call My Agent! on Netflix.
