Australian-born model Elyse Taylor has toured the world for both work and play, but these days she's most at home in New York where she creates content for brands alongside stylist pal Danielle Nachmani for their social media platform @edtn.ny. In an exclusive Buro series, the @edtn.ny team takes us on a city tour of their favourite Big Apple haunts. This week? The cultured, moneyed and designer boutique-laden Manhattan enclave known as the Upper East Side.
