"The only routine with me is no routine at all." - Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis
This is one of our favorite quotes because New York City has no routine, and changes with every corner you take. This quote is best embodied when you first come upon the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir after a rushed day in the city.
Renowned as one of the best places to view Manhattan's skyline (we agree), the reservoir is an iconic part of Central Park. For us, it has become more a place of respite from our usual Midtown "chaotic love of life" lives. The entrance on 5th Ave & 90th St. (Guggenheim Museum anyone?) is our meeting place. Up the stairs to a spectacular view, and we are in another world.
If you're feeling healthy, the reservoir features a 1.58 mile jogging path, The Reservoir loop. (Stay to the right on this path running counter clockwise)
We mostly stand at the guard rail drinking Starbucks and talking about where to go to dinner/what other pieces we want to design...that's enough activity in itself.
So if you find yourself with caffeine coursing and in need of an outlet for inspiration, check out this routine breaking NYC staple for yourselves.
