Ten DOs and DON’Ts in New York City Suggested by Concierge.com

1. Do NOT take a Pedi-cab (unless one wants to go green). Do take the subway because it is cheap, fast, and convenience.
2. Do NOT eat anything from a hot dog cart. Do try the classic, all-beef deli dog ($3.10) at Katz’s Delicatessen (205 E Houston St) or other alternatives such as Dogmatic (26 E. 17th St) and Crif Dogs (113 St. Marks Place).
3. Do NOT go to the top of the Empire State Building for a view. Do enjoy a view with a drink in the Rainbow Room on the 65 floor at the Rockefeller Center.
4. Do NOT get cupcakes at Magnolia Bakery. Do visit the Rocco’s Pastry Shop (243 Bleecker St) and Cupcake Café (545 Ninth Ave).
5. Do NOT take a twilight carriage ride in Central Park. It sounds romantic, but the horses and drivers seem tired, and the street is not as clean if it is not dirty yet. Do go early in the morning and walk.
6. Do NOT east at Tavern on the Green (been closed in 2009 anyway). Do enjoy a real meal at the River Café (One Water Street; price is not cheap though). Or, go to Dumbo in Brooklyn by a cab or water taxi.
7. Do NOT eat in Time Squares unless you are a big fan of a franchised restaurant. Do try the Hell’s Kitchen.
8. Do NOT see a Time Square comedy show. Do stop by the Upright Citizens Brigade in Chelsea (307 W. 26th St).
9. Do NOT shop at Century 21. Do spend some time at Lord & Taylor’s flagship store (Fifth Ave & 38th St).
10. Enjoy a late night in the Lower East Side.

Yammer: A Social Networking Site Exclusively for the Workplace

Effective internal communications among employees are related to some desirable organizational outcomes, such as robust morale, a clear vision, low turnover, and high employee engagement. The question is what platform can serve the purpose. This ABC News video introduces “ Yammer ,” an exclusive internal communication tool for companies. A user must use a valid company e-mail address to sign up for an account. Once an account is validated, the user will be led to the company page that is pretty much like a Facebook page. The difference is that only the users whose e-mail addresses share the same domain can see the wall and communicate with each other. I have no question about whether Yammer could be a useful internal communication tool for companies, but I just wonder: how many social networking sites do people need for communication? Why people have to “create” so many platforms or channels for “effective communications”? To many people, Facebook is only for “friends,” whe

Can leisure and work-from-home demand stimulate extended-stay hotel growth beyond COVID-19?

The lodging industry is   struggling   to fill the empty rooms in 2020. For months, U.S. hotels are running at an occupancy of 50% or lower.     Not every segment   suffers the same impact from the pandemic, however. Demand for   home-sharing  facilities had already bounced back over the summer. Airbnb reported a higher booking than last year. Marriott’s home-sharing arm is also doing well, seeing a sevenfold increase in booking over last summer.     Similar to what a residential rental or home-sharing facility   offers , guestrooms in extended-stay hotels also feature a full-size kitchen or a kitchenette. Extended-stay hotels are designed for travelers who want to stay at a “home” when away from home.

Will restaurants of the future still need a dining room?

It does not seem the coronavirus is leaving us soon, although we have seen good   progress in developing the vaccine . In recent weeks, many places reported   a surge of new infected COVID-19 cases . Some even resumed   lockdowns   and the mask-mandate order, forcing restaurants to   shut down indoor dining   services again.     As a short-term remedy, restaurants immediately shifted their offering to   curbside pickup and delivery  services. Meanwhile, restaurants are testing new concepts to embrace the   contactless self-service  trend for the future. Here are some examples,     Chipotle opened its first digital-only restaurant     The new prototype, known as the   Chipotle Digital Kitchen , debut in Highland Falls, NY, earlier this month. Different from the traditional Chipotle restaurant, the Chipotle Digital Kitchen features:     A lobby designated for pickup services through off-premise orders.   A see-through kitchen, allowing customers to see, smell, and hear what is going on b
