So good they named it twice

27 days.

Yes, in 27 days I will be in the Big Apple. For a while there it didn't look like it would happen, but it is! And I'm so excited I could burst. I'm actually trying not to think about it too much for fear that I will burn out from excitement.

I cannot wait to go back to all these places...

...and to discover many more wonders and delights.

So, lovely readers, I need you! Have you been to New York? Please recommend me some places/restaurants/bars to go to! I've been a couple of times but it's always nice to find new places and explore new areas.

On my 'to do' list so far:

+ Find the perfect cupcake. I'm willing to sample many many cupcakes to achieve this. It's a tough job but someone's got to do it
+ Recreate poignant scenes from Gossip Girl and Sex and the City (I'm going with a gay man, it's what we do)
+ Shop! (I've been to New York twice but never really shopped. Disgusting)
+ Visit Top of the Rock. I've been up the Empire State Building twice, I fancy a different view

So, what else should I do while I'm there?

To see my photos from my last trip go here.

Oh my-- I'm so incredibly envious of you!!!

Be sure to go to SoHo and hit up ALL of the local shops. Everything. There's so much to do, and a lot of the underground scene thrives there.

:) Have fun!!! I'm so glad you get to go!!! :) :) :) :)

Hidden speakeasy type bars - PDT inside Crif Dogs and Angel's Share inside Village Yokocho. Both are in the east village and you will love!

Best Burger - The burger joint - also a hidden spot inside the Le meridien hotel

Dessert - Momofuku Milk Bar, Kyotofu, Chickalisious, and DessertTruck

Have fun!!!

We went to this nice, low key roof top bar. But not the stupidly expensive kind. It was in Korea town, at the La Quinta hotel. Great views of the Empire State, reasonably priced, small but open as long as you're still drinking.

Amber - I'm so excited to go shopping! I didn't get to shop at all last time I went!

thebroguetrader - thankyou so much for the recommendations! Have made a note of all of them

Jo - I remember your blog post about it and I wrote it down at the time! We're staying right near there so will definitely give it a visit!
