New York Faves

New York City has no shortage of things to do and places to see. I’ve lived in the heart of Manhattan for a little over 2 months and I still have yet to do everything that I want to do. However, I’ve experienced the privilege of going to many wonderful places during my time here. Here’s just a few of my favorite NYC places (in no particular order):

  1. St. Patrick’s Cathedral
  2. John’s of Bleecker Street Pizza
  3. Green Bo Deluxe Shanghainese Restaurant
  4. Holy Innocents Catholic Church and Shrine to the Unborn
  5. Central Park Zoo
  6. The Metropolitan Museum of Art
  7. Ferrara’s Bakery
  8. Little Italy
  9. Koreatown
  10. Chinatown
  11. Central Park
  12. Greenwich Village
  13. Chelsea Market
  14. Fifth Avenue
  15. Tiffany & Co. Flagship Store
  16. Ichiran Ramen (Brooklyn or Manhattan)
  17. Spa Castle

    I’ve never been to NYC but I would love to visit the New York Public Library. A friend posted an interior picture of the library on social media and it looked incredible. I’d want to savor the dichotomy of a quiet, peaceful place in contrast to the hustle and bustle of the city.

    I’m torn on Times Square. I’ve seen it so much on TV but I could see that being one of those “expectation doesn’t match reality” sites. I imagine that it’s crowded, loud, filled with too many tourists and over stimulating (even by New York City standards).

    My favorite NYC spots would be the places that are under the radar. The hidden gems in the city that you either hear of by word of mouth from native New Yorkers or you discover on your own. A really good pizza place, an eclectic book store, a small park or museum with it’s own unique character.

      Times Square is good for a one time visit – in my opinion. I’ve been here two months and I’ve only been once, and that was enough for me. It’s just hokey.

      I can’t recommend John’s of Bleecker Street enough. The pizza is so good and it’s very much under the radar (except for the line of locals outside). Also, Chinatown has a ton of local places, if you’re into culinary adventure. Come on over!
