A while back, we told you how to spend the ultimate Saturday alone in NYC. Great!, you said, But what if I dont want to spend all day waiting for the subway? To that we say thank goodness for the new Brookfield Place.

Four years and $300 million in the works, it’s a hub for all things shopping, eating, relaxing and adventuring. But…the Tribeca complex can be a touch overwhelming. So we pared it down the best bets and compiled your perfect Saturday itinerary.

9:00 a.m.: Rise and shine

Up and at 'em. Throw (rather, roll) gym clothes into a tote (you’ll see why in a bit) and head to closest subway station. Brookfield Place connects underground to the World Trade Center and tons of transportation hubs--namely, the 2, 3, A, C, N and R lines.


10 a.m.: Fuel up

Once inside, head to Hudson Eats (also known as the coolest food court ever) for a next-level breakfast at Black Seed Bagels. (Might we recommend the poppy-seed bagel with tobiko caviar and watermelon radish?)


10:45 a.m.: Spruce up your spring wardrobe

Vince, DVF, Tory Burch and Theory are just a few of the shops at your sartorial disposal.


1 p.m.: Refuel

Time for a midday caffeine fix. A Stumptown iced coffee from Olive’s should do the trick.


1:30 p.m.: Work up a sweat

Spinning or sauna-ing--your choice. Inspired by luxury yacht design, this Equinox may or may not give you the fanciest sweat sesh of your life. (If you’re not a member, get a friend to hook you up with a day pass.)

3 p.m.: Feast on killer sushi

After a quick shower (real or fake), settle into a late lunch at Blue Ribbon’s 16-seat sushi bar.


5 p.m.: Stroll and shop some more

This is a mall, after all. In addition to filling your closet, maybe work on your bookshelves and coffee tables at Posman Books.


6 p.m.: Become a better cook

Take a class at the Institute for Culinary Education. Whether you’re perfecting your knife skills or pairing wine with Danny Meyer, it’s hard to go wrong with any of ICE’s countless options.


8 p.m.: Get cultured

The complex’s Winter Garden hosts a series of events, from movie screenings and music festivals to variety shows and art installations. Check one out (see you at the Global Beat Festival?), then try to make it back home before passing out for the night.
