This summer my dream of all dreams came true and I got to go to New York City with my mom and sisters. We spent a good, solid week sight seeing all over Manhattan and I couldn't get enough. Thanks to my mom, and sisters Egan and Annie we had a great itinerary. I couldn't possibly write about everything we did, but lately I've been thinking about some of my favorites. My girlfriend Maggie left this morning for New York, she is going with the school to interview with some businesses. I had so much to tell her about New York, because she is only there for a short time I said she should go to:
SOHO...I adored every inch of that shopping district, every store, every person, every thing is Now. Style and Design is the name of the game.
Pinkberry and Rice to Riches... both in SOHO and both a delicious treat. I could eat Pinkberry everyday and Rice to Riches, well, there is nothing like it. Rice pudding? Rad.
Serendipity...sure it's mainly got a name for itself cause of Oprah, but it doesn't mean you shouldn't give it a try. I liked the food and the atmosphere. You're probably asking yourself if we tryed the frozen hot chocolate....we sure did. And boy was it worth it.
Dylan's Candy Shop...Ralph Laurens daughter is the genius behind this place and it's right down the street from Serendipity. The candy may be overpriced, but just walking around makes you feel like a kid in a candy shop...well....an adult in a candy shop!!!
Broadway...I saw Les Miserable and Wicked. They are AMAZING! I had seen Mary Poppins in London when I went in May, so I was thrilled to get to see two more fabulous musicals. I can't stop singing Wicked songs and Les Mis is a MUST.
Gotta have a Bagel in New York...I don't care where, but you just have to. It's a part of the experience. It's like going to Seattle and not having some type of sea food.
Thanks New York...I'll be seeing you again soon and THANKS DAD!
