NEW YORK, new york

Okay friends, I need your help. Hubby and I sat down with our planners this morning to look at the coming months because, frankly, our late spring/early summer schedule is madness... but that's really beside the point. I need your help because we are going to the East Coast for a wedding at the end of May and we are going to spend a few days in New York. It will be our first trip to New York ever and I need to fill our itinerary with things that cannot be missed. I don't want to do all the cliche' sight-seeing. (Okay, maybe we'll do a smidge of cliche' sight-seeing.) I want to know what we shouldn't pass up: restaurants (I am partial to good sushi and organic food), shops, shows, sections of the city we have to see, and really, anything that you fancy in your New York travels or day-to-day living. If you have advice about what to wear on the streets of New York in May, I'll take it. If you want to take a trip out of town and have us housesit for you, we'll do it. ; ) I just want to make sure we make the most of our 4 days in the big city. I'm starting my planning now and welcome your input.

And so, with New York on the brain, I am going to travel New York through prints...

We met in New York (as you probably remember) and took the first part of our honeymoon there (in May...GREAT time to go)...We love it, so excited you get to go! I don't have any particular suggestions, because I don't think you can go wrong. I love that you can walk or take a taxi anywhere...I can still taste the cinnamon nuts in Central Park... don't eat at ROXY in Times Square unless you want to drop 40 or 50 bucks on ridiculously large sandwiches...See something on Broadway, Lion King was amazing...I loved getting a "souvenir" at Tiffany's, from the sterling silver floor of course...just enjoy:)

Ohhh, I am so jealous (I mean happy) for you guys!!! I've never been there but we really want to go. Anyway, I will let you borrow my wish list of places to go:

1.) Les Halles (Anothony Bourdain's place)
2.) Serendipity (yeah, it's touristy, but looks so yummy)
3.) The MOMA and the MET (yeah, I'm an art geek)

OK, that's all I can think of off the top of my head.
:)
