Start spreading the news....

New York, New York!

In 18 days I'm going to New York. I can't quite believe it to be honest and I won't go into the logistics of it. But going I am! 7 nights and 7 days in the Big Apple. I've been before.... a long time ago. As in, pre-9/11. And I went with my parents. This time I'm going with C and I fully intend it to be a VERY different experience to the one I had with my parents. I'm old enough to drink, for one thing.

So this, dear reader, is where you come in. If you've been to New York I'd love you to leave me a few recommendations in that there comments box down below. Restaurants? Bars? Sightseeing? Anything else? We've not planned much as yet and are very open to suggestions (easy tiger). I'm sure I could read a lot of tourist guides and make a list as long as my arm of things to do but I'd like some input from real people, not books.

Inform me. I demand it.

I worked in Manhattan and lived on Staten Island for 2 years and could fill your blog up with things to do.

But the best/weirdest thing is to visit McDonalds on Wall Street during a weekday lunch when they have a uniformed doorman and a guy who plays the grand piano on the first floor.

I went once in 96/97 with an old girlfriend for 4 days, so all my highlights are out of date
It's just brilliant walking around Manhatten to be honest. I went running around Central Park (yes I know!)

Other Higlights

Standing on top of the World Trade Center - scratch that

Dinner at (then) trendy and exclusive Nobu

East Village drinking and getting acapella version of the whole of A Boy Named Sue by a strange bloke

Most of what I got up to is here, and I'd say the Museum of Sex is a definite must-see ;)

Majorly jealous though.

Dim Sum in Chinatown. The park next to the UN has the best view of the East River. Walking across the Brooklyn Bridge. Grimaldi's Pizza, or John's, or Lombardi's. Burp Castle and McSorley's on East Seventh. Pomme Frites around the corner from that on Second Ave.

Found you through Lis. Have a great and safe trip

Thanks for all the suggestions guys! I will be sure to do as many of them as possible.

Lis - The Museum of Sex is definitely at the top of my list! Ha ha.
