Places

Ingegerd Råman’s world – Tokyo, New York and Österlen

Ingegerd Råman lists her favourite places in her favourite cities: The energy and inspiration of New York and Tokyo, combined with the peace and nature of Österlen.

New York

Dia:Beacon

An interesting and relatively new art gallery. Also makes a lovely excursion along the Hudson River by train from Grand Central Station.

Meatpacking District and Chelsea

An area worth exploring, with lots of art galleries (W17th – 24th Street, along 10th Avenue) as well as the long, elevated park promenade along the old High Line railroad, which has turned into something wonderful.

Fried Dumplings

A hole-in-the-wall eatery on Mosco Street in Chinatown.

The Nezu Museum

Housed in a grand building designed by architect Kengo Kuma. Worth a visit for its collections, temporary exhibitions of traditional arts and crafts, and the beautiful garden.

Österlen

Ale's Stones

Winter is the best time to visit Ale’s Stones, when the place is deserted and almost completely colorless and the stones stand like graphic signs pointing towards the sea. 

Fyledalen

National Park, close to my home and great for hiking. 

Ystad

With its beautiful historic center, this is one of my favorite cities. The long, sandy beach at Stenshuvud is the best place for swimming.

The palace garden at Övedskloster and Wanås Sculpture Park

There’s always something new to see at these places.
