The Big Apple

Tuesday, September 22, 2009

I don't know if it was my recent dinner party with natives from the big apple, the fact that my office window looks out onto the fake New York City back lot, or if I've been watching just a litttttle too much Sex and the City and/or (yes, I admit it) Felicity, I've decided to take my vacation this year to the greatest city on earth, you guessed it, New york!

This time however, I want to do new york a little differently. I plan to spend a day with day with each of my friends, seeing their new york; their favorite cafes, bookstores, parks, flower shops and patisseries. I'm swapping tourism for hedonism here, folks. On my short list of things I must do on this visit is a trip to Coney Island for a vintage roller coaster inspired Polaroid photo shoot (like the one one hot child in the city posted recently), as well as Serendipity for their infamous frozen hot chocolates! If you have any NYC gems that I must see, please please feel free to leave a comment below. See you in October, New Yorkers!

p.s. I will be staying with friends in both Brooklyn and the East Village so anything's really a go!


  1. a trip to New York would be tragic without a stroll down the must-anticipated Highline in Chelsea and afternoon drinks at the Standard! And go see the Georgia O'Keeffe abstraction show at the Whitney, which has gotten great reviews! And maybe dinner at tiny, wonderful Westville in the West Village (my fave weeknight dinner spot with friends). Yay!

  2. Bebe - so excited for you. Here are some of my faves:

    - Italian dinner in the East Village at either Il Bagatto or Supper, both on E. 2nd btwn Ave A and B. Il Bagatto has great cheap wine too.

    - Happy hour at Verlaine on the LES (110 Rivington near Essex). I think it's until 10pm - they have lychee martinis for $4 or $5. They're strong too. And very good bloody marys.

    - If it's warm enough, it's fun to drink outside at either Spitzer's Corner or 'inoteca (both are in the LES close to Verlaine)

    - It gets crowded, so it's wise to go on a weekday, but breakfast at Clinton Street Baking Co. is great.

  3. coffee and cupcakes...get ready!! also, these frozen hot chocolates you speak of sound amazing. take me with you?
