NEW YORK POINT OF VIEW

ADD PARK SOUTH TO YOUR LIST OF NYC LODGING OPTIONS


New York’s Empire State Building generated an affair to remember, but it’s the graceful Chrysler Building that really romances the skyline. And for a great view of it, book a room on floor six or seven of the new PARK SOUTH HOTEL. Renovating a 1907-vintage building, the 143-room boutique hotel debuts this month, combining art moderne elements with contemporary décor. On 28th Street near Park Avenue South, the Park South is walking distance from the Flatiron District, Greenwich Village, and Grand Central Station. Or save your breath and go next door to the inn’s upscale restaurant — The Black Duck — a clubby nightspot in the up-and-coming Rose Hill area. Rooms $250 to $450; (800) 395-1343 or www.atlanticstars.com
