I just got back from New York a couple weeks ago and was asked about some of my favorite things to do, see, eat in the big city. I was there on business, but was fortunate enough to have my mom and sister join me to stay through the weekend! Here are some highlights from my holiday visits to New York!
First, walking around the various neighborhoods like Soho, Chelsea, Greenwich (my favorite:)…Now onto brunch 🙂 Brunch in NY is a MUST. Make sure to make resos ahead of time or get there early to put your name in, then grab some coffee down the street!Next, shopping! SO much shopping in New York! SoHo is great and you must stop by the infamous Macy’s to see the iconic wooden escalators. Hello, Miracle on 34th street 🙂But first, coffee #duh 😉 New York is FULL of amazing coffee shops (and amazing everything really). There’s way too many to list, but I love La Colombe which is right by my office. Of course, you should so some sight-seeing while in the city. I definitely recommend getting a drink at the Top of the Rock where you can get a beautiful view of the New York skyscrapers (drinks are a bit pricey, but the views are worth it!). Of course Lady Liberty is a sight to see, Ellis Island, the Rockefeller Center, Radio City, One Tower and more. As probably expected, take a day to visit Tower One and the museum as it requires a lot of time and emotionally draining – but definitely something everyone should experience.
Of course, you must walk around the romantic Central Park and possibly take a horse-drawn carriage around 🙂Here’s Central park in the winter. A dream….There are so many amazing places to eat. Again, too many to list but I absolutely love the Meatball Shop and Tavern on the Green.
Again, there is so much to do, see and eat in New York. It’s hard to wrap it up in one post. We’d love to hear about your favorite spot(s) in New York!? Please share in the comments below!
