My new husband and I have just returned back from a week in New York and had the most amazing time!! The weather was pretty much constantly 30 degrees each day with storms at night so made for very hot walking conditions each day!
We did most things on our itinerary although it soon became apparent that no matter how much one plans, the city throws up all sorts of hurdles that mooching around with a vague idea of what you want to do works best in such a bustling city!
We achieved visits to the MOMA, TOTR, Grand Central, CP, Statue of Lib, Chelsea Market, Soho, G/wich Village, Midtown, Downtown, Fin. District, Times Square, Pastis, Balthazar, Eleven Madison Park, Buddakan, Locanda Verde, Shake Shack and more and more!! There were some really crazy people and some really great people - the Americans (or New Yorkers) are great at customer service and our hotel - the Trump Soho was fantastic (just a shame about the Holland Tolland traffic which is relentless!). Things we didn't like was Times Square and the continuous honking of horns - although I'm sure you can't have one without the other!
We will definitely be back and the sooner the better, still so much to do but with an itinerary to amble next time rather than have a regimented who/where/when!
We did see a couple of famous faces inc. 4 England Premiership football players eating brunch at Pastis which cheered up my husband no end!
Thank you for your help and advice but you really have to see it to believe it!
The new Mrs M!
