Running from the Law: New York, New York

New York, New York

Tomorrow I'm going to New York!  I'm totally pumped.  My bestie is in New Jersey for the next two weeks taking training courses for her new job.  She's never been to the city, so I decided to hop on a plane, meet her in Manhattan and be her personal tour guide for the weekend.  It's been a couple years since I've been to New York and I cannot wait to be a tourist again! 

Our hotel is basically in the middle of Times Square.  Not a bad cental location for us tourists.  Checking out the scene in Times Square is a must for any tourist.  And I think it'd be great if we could find some time to catch a show while we're there. 

Central Park is definitely on the list.  Not sure if we'll just walk around and take in the sites, or go ice skating, or go to the zoo.  Maybe lunch at the Boathouse.  However, I can't see Kasey being all that excited about the carousel, so that's probably out. 

Maybe we'll be in a cultural mood, wanting to enrich our minds at some of the best museums in the world.

Or perhaps we might even take the opportunity to visit some of the classic NYC landmarks.

This might take some work on my part, but I'm going to try to convince Kasey to visit some of my favorite NYC places and let me make a few quick pit stops here...

and here...

and here...

After a long day walking around (and hopefully shopping), we're definitely going to need to replace all those burned calories...enter this NYC favorite.

We can split one of these.

As for dinner, since I'm obsessed with Top Chef, I figured it was only appropriate to dine with Tom Colicchio himself.  We've got reservations at Craftsteak.  Not the original Craft, but it'll do.  I'm a total sucker for bald heads and Ryan's already warned me that I'm not allowed to make out with TC.  He said it'd be ok if Kasey did though, so I'm going to have to live vicariously through her.

Am I missing anything?  What are your favorite things to do in NYC?


  1. Ahhhh, I'm so jealous, I've never been! You'll have to tell us all about it!

  2. I recommend Angelo's in Little Italy for amazing Italian food and Ferrara's afterward for dessert. (Also in Little Italy, just around the corner.) Crumbs has the best cupcakes and a few locations in the city. Have a great time!

  3. Funny, I was up in NYC last weekend as well. We stayed at the Millenium in Times Square and had such an awesome time!

  4. That was a amazing weekend, and I am super lucky to have such a amazing friend that I could stumble around NYC with!
