To Do List – NYC
New York City is home to a wondrous amount of things to see and do. As such it can be rather overwhelming, especially when you’re trying to plan your days with a stack of sights and activities, within what is usually a very short amount of time. Yet, despite the city’s long list of things to do and its considerable size, it is amazing just how much stuff you can actually fit into a few days.
Having now lived in NYC, I am often asked by visiting friends what I think they should include on their NYC itinerary. Apart from a handful of the more obvious attractions like the Empire State Building and Times Square I seem to rattle off the same names, whether they be sights, areas or restaurants. These suggestions have I hope a more local feel to them and therefore a less touristy vibe.
While it’s fantastic to see and tick off the big ticket items it’s also important to get a more local experience, which you can do simply by walking around the city’s neighbourboods. Every street and every block has something worth discovering, from old school diners to designer boutiques. Walking around NYC with eyes wide open is perhaps the most valuable advice I can give.
So here it is, my New York list of things to see, do and eat, in no particular order:

We are planning to come through NYC in 2015, so this blog will be saved and I will be referring to it closer to the time. Thanks Jess.
