The City So Nice They Named It Twice

long wait for the E train
I’m missing the city already… planning for the next time I’m there.

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!

+ wait in line for quite a while to get into a Central Park Summer Stage concert. I saw Stephen Lynch and Mike Birbiglia.

+ 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…

+ go to lots of art museums: Guggenheim, New Museum, MoMA. Modern and contemporary art is the best.

+ 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.
