I have been to New York City once in my life. It was fun and exciting and freezing cold. I do not recommend going in January, even if the flights are half price. I want to go to NYC again, this time in the spring.
The most important thing I want to do in NYC is eat. The hardest thing will be choosing, seeing as there are thousands of great restaurant to choose from. Luckily visiting NYC involves a lot of walking, so that I can build up an appetite.
I want to stay at the Standard Hotel, where I would have brunch at the Standard Grill. Then on my way out I would walk the Highline Park. Then would have a Cronut. I have had a Cronut before, it was delicious and worth the two hours wait at Dominique Ansel Bakery.
I would spend the next few hours walking and sightseeing. I don’t enjoy too many of the typical tourist options, like the Empire State Building or the Statue of Liberty. I want walk around and see different shops and boutiques. I would love to take a long leisurely walk through Central Park, and enjoy the spring time foliage.
Next I would eat at Republic of Noodles in Union Square. I love Pad Thai and really every type noodles. Then I would like to walk across the Brooklyn Bridge to enjoy the view of the Manhattan skyline. Then I would head to the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens to see the cherry blossoms in bloom. By this time I would be ready for dinner, and done with walking so I would hop on the subway and head towards the hotel. On my way I would stop in Hell’s Kitchen for some dinner, probably Ethiopian food. Inevitable I will get lost at some point during the day, but there is no place I would rather be lost in than New York City.
