free people guide to NYC: part one

i am so excited to finally bring you the free people guide to new york city! you may remember a few weeks back, jemma and i went to new york to check out some spots we love and take pictures, and we’ve put together a guide of all of our favorite hotels, restaurants, hang-outs, shops and more. as you look through the guide, keep an eye out for the little red snowflake sticker, which indicates a place that’s great to go to during the holiday season!

there’s definitely a magical air in new york city around the holidays, and it would be the destination of choice for our candy girl who loves tradition and everything about the holidays – the decorations, the music, the smells and of course, the snow.

i will post the guide in three sections over the next few days but starting today you can find the entire thing on flickr – right here – where you can download the large size and print out your own copy of the fp guide to nyc!

first up, where to stay and where to eat!

  1. First I was so excited to see an NYC guide! I am there a lot and I love finding new places every time! I was also so excited to see Freeman’s made the list! A good friend took me here years ago when I went to visit. I’ve been back a couple times since then. It’s a great dinner destination in the fall/winter with all their yuummy meat/potato style dishes!

  2. I was recently in NYC as well and I know exactly the feeling you’re talking about. What a great place and awesome suggestions and pictures! I’m excited to see what you have in store for us in part 2!

  3. Over the summer I stayed at the Library Hotel and ate at a cafe called Penelope’s. They were so Free Peoplesque. I think they’d be perfect for anyone as obsessed with free people as me! :)

  4. I’m going to New York the February for Fashion Week. I’m so glad I now have some tips on where to stay and eat =D Thanks Free People!


  5. ah yay i’m so excited to check out some of these restuarants!! so happy you guys are doing a guide. oddly enough on my blog i just posted a little thing about NY as well, i recommended a yoga studio and the best place for chocolate cake :) love free people and love NYC <3

  6. My boyfriend lives about a couple blocks from Five Leaves and we go there a lot. The food is amazing, probably one of the best restaurants in that neighborhood :)
