TRAVEL NOTES: NEW YORK STATE OF MIND

It’s a moody time of year here in the North. One day its 70 degrees and absolutely glorious and the next five days it pours rain. It’s the highest of highest and the lowest of lows. It always has me craving a change of scenery- the energy of somewhere new that makes you feel so undeniably alive.

Really not someone who loves to be alone… I love spending time alone in NYC. I intentionally fly into JFK so I can take the subway into the city- its almost as if that time lets the energy build and all of the sudden 45 minutes pass by, you hustle up the stairs of the station and you’re smack in the middle of it all.  For me, there are few places that are as creatively reinvigorating as New York City, I always find myself clinging onto the last seconds not wanting to leave.

Truth be told, I always have the same-ish agenda – it makes me feel a little more local. They’re things I truly love to spend my time doing and I’m fascinated by the idea that every single person on that island has a different version of that agenda. A few of the things I love to do…

  • Spend an day wandering Chelsea, shopping around the Chelsea Market and walking up and down the Highline
  • Sunday Picnic in Central Park
  • An Afternoon at The Met
  • Grabbing Lunch at one of the many amazing restaurants in TriBeCa
  • Midnight in Times Square
  • Seeing the world from the Top of The Rock

What are your favorite things to do in NYC? The things that make you feel like you’ve got a handle on that 8 mile island, the things that you feel like you’re divulging your best NYC secret to a close friend?
