Taking a self-guided tour of public art is a great way to experience New York City any time of year. Two of the city’s iconic pieces are just a stone’s throw from the hotel: Robert Indiana’s LOVE sculpture (at 54th Street and 6th Avenue) and the globe-wielding Atlas Sculpture at Rockefeller Center (across the street from St. Patrick’s Cathedral). Take a tour of some of our current favorites—each more Instagram-able than the last.

Gabrielle Jammal, the Tea Sommelier at the Baccarat Hotel in NY, is welcoming Esprit de Baccarat’s Editor into her domain — the Grand Salon where the Afternoon Tea has already become a tradition. While she is advising some guests on their tea selection, she is sitting with us to share her earliest experience of tea, and what makes Afternoon Tea a memory for all.
Right across the street from the Baccarat Hotel New York stands one of the largest and most influential museums of modern art in the world: the MoMA. The Museum of Modern Art, founded primarily by Abby Aldrich Rockefeller in 1929, is an architectural marvel in itself — the perfect showcase for its extensive collection and exhibits ranging from Picasso and Matisse paintings to design famous bottle openers and electronic media. If you are looking for a quiet tour, or coming with the kids, the Hosts at Baccarat New York offer up tips on how to best enjoy your visit to MoMA.
