New York is one of those places, there’s a reason why so many people love the Big Apple and I can’t quite put into words what exactly it is (it’s the pizza) that makes New York so special but it just is. A few months back I was lucky enough to spend 7 days in New York and in that time I fell in love with the city. I literally just wanted to spend all day and night writing blog posts, taking photos and walking around and if that’s not inspiration smacking me in the face then I don’t know what is. So if you’re heading there yourself or if you’re just in a bit of a wanderlust mood, here are 11 things you have to do in New York:
It’s a right of passage, grab that pizza and welcome to New York. My top pick for an amazing pizza? Eataly, hands down. Their buffalo mozzarella is imported from Italy, I mean…
Shopping in New York is something else. I saved up a chunk of money specifically just to spend in NY (priorities) because they’ve got shops we don’t have in Melbourne, more stock of all my favourite things and everything just seems bigger and better there. I mean the Macy’s in NY has 11 floors, 11 FLOORS PEOPLE! That’s just insane. Keep in mind the shops are generally further apart though so wear comfy shoes if you plan to do what I did and shop for multiple days straight….
Shops to tick off your bucket list:
PS, If you’re from the U.S. you may not find these shops out of the ordinary, but we basically don’t have any of them in Aus!
I’ve been to Central Park before but this was the first time that I’d properly walked from one end of it to the other and wow, it’s large but the walk was worth it. Squirrels, vendors selling treats, parents playing with their kids, people reading, everyone catching Pokemon, people exercisng- Central Park has it all.
The Empire State Building has some competition, The Top Of The Rock hosts some amazing views.
