A Quick Guide to New York

Plants Oct 1, 2012

Thought I’d share a few pics of the millions I took while I was in New York. I spent the first half of my two week trip staying in Manhattan, working with Coach, going to a few shows and generally enjoying the hustle and bustle of fashion week. I then moved over to Brooklyn for the second half of my trip and stayed with a friend – relaxing and enjoying the more laid back vibe of Williamsburg and the surrounding suburbs. All in all it was an amazing trip and I felt so lucky to meet so many lovely people and really get to know New York. Here are a few (ok yes well lots) of snippets of the places that I went and the things that I saw, including some holiday must sees and must eats for next time you are in NYC.

My NYC Must Do’s and Must Eats:

  •  Hire a rowboat from the Boathouse in Central Park (only like $15 and so fun!)
  • Take a Staten Island Ferry trip to see the Statue of Liberty (sit on the right-hand side for the best view)
  • Wander the streets of the West Village and Meatpacking district and stop off at Ino’s for a panini.
  • Hang out in Williamsburg and have a drink at the Radegast Beer Hall, and have a bite to eat at La Esquina Diner  (brother of the famous Las Esquina in Soho – go there too if you can get a booking!)
  • Walk the Williamsburg Waterfront
  • Go to the Brooklyn Flea and eat fresh strawberry icecream – life. changing.
  • Duck into Beacons Closet in Brooklyn.
  • Walk the Highline and then have lunch in Chelsea Market (fish tacos at Friedman’s Lunch were so good, or eat on the Highline itself behind Chelsea Market)
  • Hit the shops around Soho.
  • Hire a bike in Central Park.
  • Go to the top of the Rockafella Centre
  • Tour the Garment district.
  • Have a sundowner at the rooftop of the Whythe Hotel in Brooklyn.
  • Head to the Frick, Guggenheim and Moma Galleries.
  • Have an Iced Coffee and bagel with creamcheese for breakfast.
  • Go to Eataly from a long lunch.
  • Have brunch at Penelope’s in Murray Hill.
  • If you can, go check out Early Halloween – you will be bowled over.
  • Hang out in the Lower East Side, have happy hour at Schillers Liquor Bar and then Tacos at Taqueria Lower East Side

Anywhere I  missed? I wish I had been there for a month so I could have eaten at more places!
