Weathering Groundhog’s Day

… If you need to survive six more weeks of winter - or quickly prep for spring

Let’s be honest: Groundhogs are not the most reliable meteorologists (and New York doesn’t have the most predictable weather). But you can cut Punxsutawney Phil slack, because you have Hudson Yards and Hudson Yards has everything you need, be there a shadow sighting or not.

If winter is going to linger…

Know this: Denial is a perfectly healthy response. So pop into 3DEN, on Level 4, where overflowing greenery—including a living plant wall—and swings will trick you into thinking you’re in the tropics. If that doesn’t work its meditation rooms will surely move you towards acceptance.

If you choose to lean in, take a page from the Scandinavians, who say: “There’s no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothes.” For a base layer, it’s hard to beat Uniqlo’s Heattech. Then top that with Nadaam’s cashmere sweaters and Rudsak’s Canadian puffers. Finish up at Neiman Marcus; its cold-weather shop is well stocked with gloves, scarves and hats.

If spring is coming soon…

Hoorah! Celebrate by booking tickets to Edge, the highest outdoor sky deck in the Western Hemisphere, which opens March 11. Ray-Ban has that chic pair of sunglasses you’ll need to fully appreciate the view, not to mention, up your Insta game.

Similarly, a pedicure is called for to get your toes sandal-ready. Sundays deep hydration treatment brings overworked feet back to life with a coconut milk soak and natural scrub.

While you’re at it, get ahead of the game with some bathing suit buys—before the good ones are all gone—at Heidi Klein and Vilebrequin. Accessorize with a brightly colored Carmen Sol Jelly Bag, a favorite of resort goers for all seasons.
