Hello, 52 Thursday readers! My name is Jacqueline and I am extremely excited to announce that I will be joining Sarah & Michelle as their NYC contributor! I will be popping in from time to time to provide you all with the latest from the Big Apple! As I have known Sarah & Michelle for quite some time, and a fellow Fashion gal, I jumped on the opportunity to join their exciting team!
The Spring in NYC is one of my favorite times of the year. Just this past week, it felt as if the city had woken up from a (very) long hibernation. Suddenly, cherry blossoms and tulips line the streets and the people of New York are smiling and out and about again!I currently live downtown in Manhattan, as many twenty-somethings do. But, one of my favorite activities during this time is to make a trip up to Central Park followed by a fabulous boozy brunch. It is the start of Rosé season after all! My new favorite UES (Upper East Side) trendy spot is Pizza Beach. Located on 81st and 3rd avenue, it is a quick walk from the Park. You MUST try the Rosé sangria, paired with the Tuscan Kale Salad and the Pancetta & Egg Pizza! The moment you walk in, you feel as if you have been teleported out of the city and to the beach in Montauk! Being as we are still a few weeks from summer, Pizza Beach provides the perfect transition into the season. You will not be disappointed!! Enjoy!!
