PLAN DATE: SUN / JULY 21
If you’re into classic NYC museums and culture but want something a little more fun and interactive, this massive exhibition of street art and graffiti is both immersively Instagrammable and culturally relevant. Beyond the Streets is the world’s largest exhibition of graffiti and street art, with colorful pieces crafted by over 150 international artists. Take a bunch of selfies or just enjoy the vibes.
Afterward, head to Klein’s in the Hoxton Hotel for all-day bites in an airy space with modern decor. Opened and operated by the founders of Union Pool and Five Leaves, Klein’s offers all the best parts of hotel dining (friendly service, gorgeous atmosphere, delicious plates) with none of the pretentiousness. And sure, their grain bowls are great, but the comfort food really shines here; try the English breakfast featuring duck fat hash browns, or the classic Cacio e Pepe.
