I have New York on my mind today. You might think this is obvious considering the date [never forget 9/11/01]; but, remembrance aside, I am thinking about all things NYC because I leave for The Big Apple exactly one month from today! Quite a coincidence.
I have never been to New York, nor anywhere on the East Coast for that matter, so I am giddy with excitement to get a taste for the United States’ other half.
The main motive behind my travel is for a cousin’s wedding. It will be a whirlwind of a trip (red eye flight + 4 nights/4.5 days). I’m going with a girlfriend, and we realize it’ll be impossible to do half of what we’d like to do, so that’s why we are creating a NYC bucket list.
If you’ve been to New York, please please please give us your suggestions and recommendations for what we should do during our short vacation.
Walk across the Brooklyn Bridge
Visit Central Park
Visit Grand Central Terminal
Visit Times Square
Staten Island Ferry or some sort of boat cruise
Go to the top of the Empire State Building
Eat a snack at Chobani SoHo
See a Broadway show ($$)
See The Today Show
Tea at The Plaza Hotel
Visit the 911 Memorial
