If "sun, sand and waves" didn't conjur up visions of downtown New York before, it just might after this summer. Dream Downtown has masterminded The Beach, a valley between its North and South Towers modelled after none other than St. Tropez. Think 4,800 square feet filled with imported sand (!!!), cabanas, and Cote D'Azur-inspired chaise lounges.
During the day, pool and beach access is exclusive to guests, but come nightfall, you're welcome to drop by and partake the perks of an all-out beach lounge. (Hint: Rent yourself a cabana and enjoy L-shaped sofas, coffee tables, 42" screen TVs and a basket full of sunscreen, magazines and bottled water for a private post-dip wind-down with a few of your closest friends...)
