Things I’ve done, will do again and recommend to you:
+ walk across the Brooklyn Bridge. Walking toward Manhattan gives especially nice views of the Financial District. Be sure to take lots of pictures of its great design.
+ eat Pinkberry. The regular frozen yogurt has a taste you probably cannot compare to anything. I’ve heard the coffee and green tea flavors are good, as well. I will soon attempt to recreate this.
+ go to the Bronx Zoo. It’s a bit of a trip on the subway, but worth it for the mouse house and Madagascar exhibit. Avoid the wild dogs – they’re just gross. Free on Wednesdays!
+ ride the original wooden escalators at Macy’s.
+ spend time outside of Manhattan. Brooklyn is my favorite.
+ drink an egg cream.
Things I wish I had done and will do when I’m back…
+ see a show at the McCarren Park Pool. They bring in great bands/artists.
+ eat at Carmine’s near Times Square. I’ve heard rave reviews for this family-style place. Reservations definitely needed.
+ wait in line for the free Upright Citizens Brigade show. Amy Poehler is a regular.
And while we’re on it, here are some Etsy cuties.
