Going to NYC tomorrow! Any "must-do's?"

Recommended Posts

Thanks everyone for all of your great ideas! Once we were there it was actually pretty hard to go "out of the way" to do a lot of it, but we had an amazing time regardless! We spent a lot of time in Soho and the lower east side, plus the Yankee game was a blast! We ended up in the adidas box so all of our food and drinks were free...needless to say, we were all pretty wasted by the time we left :) It was SO much fun!

 

My favourite place was an Italian place we went in the Lower East Side called Lil Frankies - honestly, this place is amazing! I'm 100% going back there next time I go to NYC. I had the best appetizer there that I've ever had in my entire life, and the pasta melts in your mouth...plus the atmosphere is great. I totally recommend it!

 

Here are a few pics from our weekend:

That's it! I can't wait to go back again, although my wallet is still on fire so we probably won't be making the trip there again for awhile sad.gif

 

Thanks again everyone for your suggestions!

Since you already saw all the touristy things I would say just enjoy eating. LOL. New Yorkers love their food. Or if you did want to see something you could go see the "Walking with Dinosaurs" exhibition in Madison Square Garden. It runs from July 30- August 3. It is supposed to be awesome, they have real life looking dinosaurs.

Also there is that cadaver exhibit in South Street Seaport called "Bodies the Exhibition". People seem to really love that.

Both of these events are not touristy things they are things that NYers go see so maybe you'd like to check one of them out.

Obviously you should shop till you drop b/c there are tons of stores especially in SOHO. And SOHO has those great little vendors on the street that sell cool jewlery and sunglasses.

As far as nightlife goes some of the "good" clubs are kind of hard to get into but you can still go somewhere nice like the Hudson Hotel or the Rooftop of the Empire Hotel.

Hope you have fun!
I would definitely second going to Pastis!

I just realized you were back!

 

We did the whole last year at Yankee Stadium a few weekends ago and had a fantastic time. We were so lucky to get out alive (it was during a Red Sox game) but so worth it.

 

Glad you had fun!

Yeah it was a blast! We decided we want to try to go for a "first year at the new stadium" game next year, haha. I can always find reasons to go back to NYC!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
