Things to Do in New York

I have lived in New York my entire life. Queens is just a hop, skip, and a jump away from Manhattan and honestly, I have not taken advantage of it as much as I should have.

I have always adored Manhattan and the awe behind it's eyes. I am fascinated that people from all over the world come to Manhattan to visit and see what I see every single day. Whenever I drive into the city and see the skyline, I am awestruck.

How lucky I am to live in the greatest city in the world (hey, that's what people call it, don't they?)

The fact that I go into Manhattan every day has really had me thinking lately... why don't I do "touristy" stuff, ever? I've never been to the Statue of Liberty, or the top of the Empire State Building. Ok, so maybe that's a little too touristy but there are so many things that I want to do in NYC that I never, ever get around to doing.

Most are based around food, or shopping, but hey, a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do!


Visit Central Park: I'm 99% sure I have never been inside Central Park. As a New Yorker, I'm sure that is not acceptable.


Laudree: I love macaroons more than life and I need to eat one from the original French Bakery on Madison Ave. I've seen so many photos of it and it's the cutest little bakery-- I need to get my booty there.

Have lunch at the Plaza: I see a bunch of people always doing this and it looks like the cutest, most quaint outing on a nice afternoon. Please, someone come with me.


Viral Food Places: Black Tap's Milkshakes, Dominique Ansel's cronut... some of the best food that has gone viral over the Internet is in NYC and I haven't had of them. I need to get my hands on some.

9/11 Memorial: I've talked about my experience with 9/11 and this year, for the first time, I went to see the Freedom Tower and the two waterfalls that honor those who died during the attacks. It was really emotional and beautiful at the same time, but I really want to go into the museum and explore the history that I lived through.

Brooklyn Bridge: I'm terrified of bridges but I so want to take a nice, sunny afternoon walk across the Brooklyn Bridge. It's so beautiful and to see the skyline that up close and personal is probably amazing.

There are a lot of other activities I want to do, places I want to eat, and places to visit in my backyard of Manhattan but I think this is a good start!

What are your favorite things to do in your city?
