What's Your Sign? An Astrological Guide to Touring New York
Each zodiac sign loves New York City in their own special way. The exact time of year you were born has everything to do with your unique relationship to New York City.
Did you know that cities have birthdays too? New York happens to be a Capricorn - born January 1, 1898.
Four Seasons Hotel New York Downtown Resident Healer, renowned astrologer and native New Yorker Rebecca Gordon has curated the ultimate New York City itinerary for each star sign.
Aries: Aries are the brave risk takers of the zodiac and love New York for its most hidden underground gems. On higher ground, a helicopter tour around New York City fits the bill for the Rams of the aodiac.
Taurus: Taureans are ruled by Venus, patron of the arts, beauty, and ambrosia. Treat yourself to one of the city’s legendary culinary destination restaurants including CUT by Wolfgang Puck, Le Bernardin, Daniel, Eleven Madison Park, L’Appart, Per Se and Aureole at Home. Let the inspiration of street fashion guide you to SoHo for a premier shopping experience.
Gemini: Being so naturally inquisitive and social, you will fall in love with the rich variety of locals and their neighbourhoods. Try a local intimate guided tour - private tours in a classic convertible, an underground tour of the New York City subway, a guided tour at The Museum of Natural History or skip the line with Babylon Tours for an architecture tour around Lower Manhattan.
Cancer: Being a water sign, you’re in luck as New York City is flanked by water on all sides. Revel in your element and enjoy a scenic stroll along the Hudson; a boat ride around Manhattan to get the full 360 view; and end your day with cocktails at Grand Banks and an intimate sunset dining experience.
Leo: New York is made for Leos with their flair for luxury and regal tones. Visit Brookfield Place on the Hudson for luxury shopping or wander the iconic streets of SoHo and the Lower East Side for the best boutique shopping in the city. Following an active day out, relax with dinner at The Fulton on Pier 17 by Jean-George, or visit Marc Forgione for dinner at one of Tribeca’s most beloved restaurants.
Virgo: Virgo’s love to learn new things while simultaneously soaking up beauty. You’re in luck that New York has an array of unforgettable boutique museums that suit you perfectly. Explore Poster House in Chelsea, or spend the day at The Museum of Arts and Design in Columbus Circle. From the restaurant on the top floor, Robert at MAD, you can enjoy stunning views while you treat yourself to a fantastic lunch, latte or dinner.
Libra: You are known for your fashion sense, your keen eye for design, and general love of the arts. That said NYC’s Frick Collection, or the rooftop garden at The Met offers dramatic views of the city and will suit your spirit. Enjoy a rosé on the rooftop in summer or a hand-warming cup of cider in the colder months, followed by a stroll through Central Park or Battery Park in Lower Manhattan.
Scorpio: You have been known to go off script, to leave the herd and immerse yourself in the more obscure locales. New York is layered deeply (like yourself) so beginning with a meal at the likes of The Waverly Inn and ending with a burlesque show, somewhere similar to The Slipper Room in the Lower East Side, would be in true Scorpio fashion.
Sagittarius: Known to be the adventurer of the zodiac, explore the edges of your adventurous spirit with a trapeze class at Chelsea Piers or a scenic bike ride through New York City stopping at key destinations.
Capricorn: You have been known to love great heights and views. You’re most at home on a mountain peak or enjoying New York's most venerable scenic view with a stroll over the Brooklyn Bridge. Make the most of being on the Brooklyn side and enjoy taking a meal at The River Cafe or Dumbo House.
Aquarius: You are known to be the eccentric of the zodiac. Lucky for you, New York has been the destination of eccentrics for many a decade. A personal Street Art Tour with Four Seasons Hotel New York Downtown through New York's graffiti murals, street art and galleries will be right up your alley. Or, feel free to venture into the lively streets of Brooklyn to view some equally eccentric and vibrant collections.
Pisces: You are known for your love of music and immersive experiences and this dream day would be right around this New York block. Explore the Resident Healers Program at Four Seasons Hotel New York Downtown for mind and body transformation. Afterwards, take in a local concert at Pier 17, followed by a delectable sushi dinner at Shoji at 69 Leonard Street.
