35 E. 76th St., Manhattan. 212-744-1600; http://www.rosewoodhotels.com/en/carlyle. "If you want to be seen, then hit up the Carlyle Hotel for drinks post-uptown shows," Washington said. "It was the outpost for every displaced fashion editor and model during Superstorm Sandy. But if you are only interested in sightings, then hang out at the Empire Hotel bar, the Starbucks ... near Milk Studios or across from Lincoln Center. Every fashion maven needs a jolt, and it is the smartest way to spot them."
