Can I start by thanking you all. I've been trawling theses forums for six months planning our New York trip and here we are, four weeks away and super excited after stealing all your tips and collecting them together for our trip.
As the title suggested, I'm travelling with a husband who hates to plan anything about our holidays and really likes just to stumble across things. This usually works quite well, although we often return home wishing we'd "seen that" and adding it to a future trip.
We're in New York for 5 days from the 23rd January. I've purchased the crumpled City NYC map (which I must say is flipping brilliant) and have written on there the things I think we'd like to see and do. This way, I think that as we strole around.....at least I'll have some tips to strole towards!
So far on the map, I have the obvious NYC tourist type destinations, the high line, Empire State Building, ground zero etc.
Restaurants such as "little owl" and "the view", following reviews on here.
Areas such as china town, little Italy and Hell's Kitchen
The major shopping department stores.
We've both been to NYC before but not together. We'll be staying in the Metro hotel, which is in the shadow of the Empire State Building.
So my question..... I know it's a very open ended question with a million possible answers, but, are there any amazing restaurants, amazing wine bars, amazing cafés or amazing anything really that you think is worthy of a mention and a "star" on my map?
We are a couple in our thirties, money isn't really a big issue, we just want the trip of a lifetime.
Again, thank you for your help so far, and thank you in advance for any further tips that make The Map!
