Yep. Next week a pop up 110-foot-tall giant Ferris wheel will showcase the crossroads of the world as never seen before. Dubbed the Times Square Wheel, the attraction is part of a larger effort by the Times Square Alliance to promote the neighborhood as the city continues to recover from the pandemic. Get the details.
Nostalgia Now Streaming
Our Broadway Babe, Randie Levine Miller has some wonderful nostalgic finds this week like Rosemary Clooney and Elaine Stritch. But our favorite, a childhood treasure, is an episode of Kukla, Fran, & Ollie. Younger Tomatoes, check it out.
Sky-High Fine Dining Unlike Any Other in NYC
SAGA, a new restaurant in the financial district located in a sky-high space, starting on the 63rd floor, spanning a dozen terraces and multiple dining rooms, opens next week and is getting rave reviews. It has panoramic views of the city and masterworks by Jean-Michel Basquiat, Victor Vasarely, and Egon Schiele. The tasting menu is $245.
Vogue magazine says: “SAGA is a sharp departure from New York’s customary fine dining circuit…and the experience is remarkable.” Read more in Vogue.
Time Out says: “There are many good views in New York City, but this one feel particularly rich, imbued with the spirit of the building’s top three floors’ almost unbelievable original intended use as an early 20th century financier’s private home.” Read more in Time Out.
