Well I am home from New York City. What a trip! I now understand what ‘taking a bite out of the big apple’ truly means. NYC is so large with so much to see and do that you can only take a small ‘bite’ out of the city each time you visit. I am already thinking about my return trip and continuing where I left off. The list of ‘What to do in NYC’ has infinite possibilities. You could focus the entire trip on just visiting the art galleries and museums; there are so many fabulous ones to see. You could spend days and dollars on just shopping as NYC is truly a shopping mecca. You could spend your entire time watching countless performances on Broadway or off-Broadway. You could spend days travelling the hundreds of miles of subway routes visiting the dozens and dozens of neighbourhoods in ‘the five boroughs’. You could just focus on noshing your way through the thousands of restaurants that NYC has to offer as it is said that “NYC is not only the nation’s melting pot, it is also the casserole, the chafing dish and the charcoal grill” with great food from every corner of the globe. While I was in NYC I stayed at the historical Waldorf Astoria with the thickest towels and the highest thread count cotton sheets which was so lovely to return to after spending 16 hours each day touring NYC. I went to the Frick Collection (a premier museum) visited Macy’s, Saks 5th Avenue and Bergdorf Goodman, lunched at Barneys, dined at Pastis in Meatpacking District, visited Central Park and Central Station, took in a performance at Palace Theatre, toured Upper East Side right down to Battery Park and back up to Times Square and Upper West Side. Rode the subway, took yellow cabs and walked and walked and walked. Whatever your style or preference New York City is a definite must to visit. I (love) NY!
