Nobody nows more about sightseeing New York, than the archetypal, Big Apple inhabiting, single and not so single gals of the TV series Sex And The City
Having trawled every corner of the city looking for love and eligible bachelors, there is no part of New York that they cannot tell you about. But what sightseeing have they done themselves within the episodes of the hit sitcom?
Trawling the Art Galleries
Any avid Sex and the City fan will immediately associate the sitcom with the wealth of art galleries that you will see whilst sightseeing New York. One of the characters, Charlotte York, even worked in several galleries during the course of her career. However, that did not stop her visiting other art spots with the girls in her spare time; one gallery that will stick out in the memory of both Charlotte and Carrie’s minds, is the exhibition at which they crossed paths with the infamous Russian artist Aleksandr Petrovsky who soon whisked Carrie away to a new life in Paris. As Charlotte would tell you, there are many galleries that are simply not to be missed when it comes to sightseeing. New York’s finest include the Museum of Modern Art, the Guggenheim, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Grand Hotel Ushba - as close to heaven as you can get
"During the first hotel season, I think the only complaint we got were from guests about the word 'probably' in our slogan 'Probably the best hotel location on earth'. All those who complained thought we we should take away that word; they strongly believed that they had stayed at the "best hotel location on earth”. - Richard Bærug.
Norwegian-born Richard Bærug is proud of having got involved in a what first seemed to be a modest hotel project in the most beautiful and mountainous part of Georgia and Europe – the remote and somewhat mystical region of Svaneti. During a hiking tour in the summer of 2009 he bounced into the local Argvliani family that possessed two buildings, one of which they wanted to turn into a small hotel. They immidiately decided to cooperate.
"I have been working in the travel industry for many years, but I have never seen such a location as this," Bærug admits.
