Start Spreading The News…

We’re leaving in a month. I’m going to be a part of it. New York, New York.

Cheesy enough for you?

For the last few weeks my mum and I have been planning a trip to New York City. We have finalized our flight and this weekend we confirmed a hotel. It is expensive to stay in NYC! Geeze! We were playing around with the idea of staying in Brooklyn or Jersey and taking a shuttle into the city, but we both decided that part of the experience of New York was staying in the city. We are both city girls ourselves, both growing up in Toronto so we are looking forward to being back in the thick of things.

We are also looking forward to seeing what this city has to offer. My mum has been once before, but this is my first time and I really couldn’t imagine going with anyone else. We have plans to go see a Broadway show, look out at the top of the Empire State Building, have a picnic in Central Park and have frozen hot chocolate at Serendipity. So this is my call out to all you readers out there in cyber land. What do we have to do? What can we not miss? What is your favourite little restaurant tucked away somewhere that serves the absolute best pizza/burger/burritos in the city? We want to know so we can see as much as possible and get a perspective of the city from people who know it best.

Leave your comments here and let me know what your favourite part of NYC is or what we should avoid at all costs. Help make our trip even more amazing.

    1) Familigia Pizza (or Ray’s depending where you get a hankering for pizza). If you’re near Broadway, there is a Familigia’s about half a dozen blocks towards Times Square.
    2) Go to the library. You won’t regret it.
    3) Times Square AT NIGHT. Totally cheesy and tourist-y, but who cares? You’re on vacation.
    4) Museum of Natural History. The whole time I was there I thought of you, complete with quotes from Friends, much to Rob’s annoyance…..”Ostrolopithicus was never fully erect”.
    5) Take the subway from Grand Central just once. It’s a little sketch, but Grand Central is really cool. Otherwise walk as much as you can…that’s the best part.

    Take it from me, staying in Jersey is NOT cool. The buses only run certain hours and it really takes away from the experience. Plus, people in Jersey are all on crack. Even their dogs are on crack.

    1) Loeb Boathouse – Central Park for a drink.

    2) Bemelman’s Bar in the Carlyle – have a drink in a truly classic piano bar, while imagining Jack sneaking Marilyn in one of the tunnels underneath.

    3) Paza Hotel – have a drink – just because it’s the Plaza

    4) pop a cork and and enjoy a sip in a paper cup in Central Park with your picnic.

    5) “Craftbar” a very cute and well rated restaurant that has a an amazing beverage manager, who is not only a sommelier, but also happens to love beer, and paired a wonderful peach infused beer with our dessert.

    6) Uncle Jack’s Steakhouse, two blocks south of Central Park, between 5th and 6th Ave’s is a great little place where they know what Black and Blue means.

    7) The Highline, a park that is a reclaimed elevated railroad platform that runs through the meatpacking district.

    8) Bloomingdales – Just because you never know who you are going to meet while shopping for a pair of gloves.

    9) B&H Photo Video, just to watch the conveyor belt.

    10) DSW shoes, in Union Square. Just because the name means Discount, doesn’t mean they don’t have Prada shoes for $699
