We heart New York!

New York, New York. The city that never sleeps. The Big Apple. The Fashion Capital. Ahhh. So many reasons to love New York. From the amazingly delicious pizza to the fabulous Broadway Shows- if you haven't been--you are missing out!

Set Up
This is important for planning your trip to NYC. There are 5 boroughs-each unique in their own way. There is: Manhattan (where the action is), The Bronx, Queens, Brooklyn (personal fave!), and Staten Island. Depending on your purpose that should lead in your decision on where you chose to stay in NYC. If you are looking to experience the lights, tourist attractions and shows stay in Manhattan. Manhattan is HUGE. There is an abundance of areas to chose to stay in, but it's easy to visit them all if you take the subway. If you are looking for a more artsy, eclectic area, Brooklyn has become a personal fave! It is not a far commute to Manhattan (can be done via Subways, Uber or taxi). 

What ever would you do in The Big Apple?
Catch a Broadway Play on Broadway! 
There are unlimited possibilities when it comes to what to do in NYC! There is truly something for everyone: the fashionista, foodie, socialite & history buff. Here are some things we did while in NYC:
Walk the Brooklyn Bridge! 
If you love southern food-head to Southern Comfort in Brooklyn! 
These are just some of the pics from the trips! You can visit:
*Madame Toussaud's
*Time Square to see the lights. There is also awesome pizza right off of Times Square visit Patzeria Perfect Pizza! Yum!
* Statue of Liberty
*SoHo for Shopping
*Harlem for great Soul Food
*Grand Central Station
*Empire State Building
and the list goes on......

When to visit NYC?
Anytime!! Having been in both December and May--going in December was just amazing! If you can stand the cold weather pack warm clothes and a coat and book your trip! We went in mid-December (before Christmas) and the city was just beautiful. Seeing the Christmas Tree at Rockefeller Center was a treat! Be warned- there was a high influx of travelers (guessing more than usual) due to the holidays. When visited in May- it was a pretty rainy trip and nights were still cool. So pack a light jacket and umbrella. But research shows the Spring time is probably the best time weather wise.
New York is definitely a place to visit more than once- each time you go, you are sure to find some new and exciting place to eat or shop! What are your favorite things to do in NYC?
