September is here and we’re ready for all things fall—and that includes introducing you to five of the greatest and most breathtaking treks around the world. These one-of-a-kind experiences are just what travelers want these days, and the next generation is following suit. We talked to some well-traveled members of Gen Z to find out just what these young jetsetters are looking for when it comes to travel. And finally, our social media guru gave us the lowdown on everything from how to up your followers to the fashionistas you need in your feed.

Fans of Soho’s Crosby Street Hotel will be thrilled with the opening of The Whitby, its new ‘sister’ in Midtown. We were among the first to see the British-based boutique hotel on W. 56th Street last week.
Once again designer Kit Kemp’s inimitable style is on display everywhere. Eye-catching and eclectic fabrics, colors, and textures rule. Attention to detail is everywhere from her specially commissioned “Friendly Flowers” curtains in the Orangerie to the colorful thread-loom installation on the lobby ceiling.
The hotel features 86 individually appointed rooms and suites, with floor-to-ceiling windows, many with private terraces. A dedicated events floor incudes a 130-seat state-of-the-art cinema.
Guests have the exclusive use of a beautiful drawing room off the lobby. A dedicated butler adds to the posh experience. There’s even an honest bar for guests to serve themselves.
Also off the lobby is the bright and airy Whitby Bar and Restaurant, which will feature modern American fare.
