New York is one of the most iconic cities in the world.
We’ve heard of it and seen it on so many TV programmes – Friends, Gossip Girl, Sex and the City (to name a few) – that we feel like we’ve lived like a New Yorker before we’ve even set foot in Grand Central Station. We’ve heard of the terms ‘Upper East Side’ and ‘Upper West’ but have no real idea what they mean and we’ve envisioned that skyline so many times that when you actually set eyes on it, you have to pinch yourself that it’s real. You’re actually in the Big Apple!
It’s an overwhelming city that steals a slice of every visitor’s heart. Here are my 9 unmissable spots in NYC.
When I visited my best friend, Fiona in her new stomping ground, New York she planned a jam-packed itinerary based solely around the Big Apple’s mouth-watering food scene – what a friend.
Ten days and ten pounds later, we had eaten our way across Manhattan sampling everything from calorific Chicago deep pan pizza to succulent, zesty chicken taco shells.
And although my waistline begs to differ, the indulgence was worth every calorie.
To my dearest friends, family and fellow culture cravers,
For the past 10 days I have been visiting my best friend, Fiona in The Big Apple. Since she moved to New York in January, I knew I HAD to fit in a trip to visit her and this iconic city.
When I first set foot on Wall Street in Downtown New York (where Fiona lives), it was just as I’d imagined.
