Delon de Metz of B&B plays the tourist guide of his hometown


New York City

The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) “I have two must-see museums. I love the Met and did the MoMA recently. In fact, I guess it would be number 1. I love modern art, so I could easily spend all day there. That said, they are both essential.

The Met: 1000 5th Avenue; (212) 535-7710;

MoMA: 11 West 53rd Street, Manhattan; MoMA PS1, 22-25 Jackson Avenue, Queens; (212) 708-9400;

Joe’s Pizza “I’ve always liked Joe’s. It’s a New York institution.

7 Carmine Street; (212) 366-1182;

Basille Artichoke Pizza “I miss artichoke [Basille’s Pizza]. Getting a slice of this from their place in the Meatpacking District is awesome.

114 10th Avenue; (212) 792-9200;

Jones Beach Amphitheater “A pal of mine growing up, he ran a club in the Jones Beach amphitheater. It’s on southern Long Island. It’s really beautiful and I’ve seen so many great shows there – and it’s easy to reach by public transport.

The Waldorf Astoria Hotel “It’s my favorite filming location in New York, it’s not an easy question to answer because many films have been shot in New York. I liked The scent of a woman, which was filmed at the Waldorf and throughout New York. This hotel has such a rich history and it’s been featured in a ton of movies.

301 Park Avenue; (800) 925-3673;

central park “I used to run in Central Park, especially after I came back from college and I was so happy to be back in the city and I was really fit. I love the Boathouse in Central Park. My dad has a license that allows him to fish in the pond and sometimes I would run around ad he would be like, ‘Come say hello’, and he would be in one of those little boats with his line in the water.

Central Park Conservancy, 14 East 60th Street; (212) 439-6500;

Yankees Stadium “My last name is from Metz and the Yankees are our winning team. I love it, being such a powerhouse. The Yankees are No. 1. I love the Mets but if I had to step foot in the fire, I’m definitely a Yankees fan. I also went to high school in the Bronx so I have an affinity for the Bronx. Yankee Stadium? Yes!”

1 East 161st Street, Bronx; (718) 293-4300;

Statue of Liberty Cruise “I think it’s always fun to take one of those boat tours around the Statue of Liberty, especially when you can get wet. And see the city from the water? I think it’s special. You absolutely have to take the boat tour.”

Liberty Cruise NYC, 2 East 42nd Street; (212) 643-0080;

Times Square “Very popular with people coming into town. I have this comment on my Instagram page that says, “Times Square has evolved over the decades from a haven for the peep-show vagabonds who have helped turn this oh-so-unique city into a consumer wonderland where the dreams of … wide-eyed Scandinavian wanderers can come true.”

Located in Midtown Manhattan, formed by the intersection of Seventh Avenue, 42nd Street and Broadway; Times Square Alliance; (212) 768-1560;
