Thursday Thirteen

Thirteen Places I Hope to Visit/See/Experience on My First Trip to New York City This Month

1. Grand Central Station and Grand Central Market below

2. At least one Broadway husband got us tickets for Mary Poppins as a Mother's Day gift--I can't wait!

3. Serendipity, the little cafe from the movie Serendipity.

4. Central Park--a definite must, but we've not yet decided what to do there.

5. A Salt and Battery--fish n' chips place I found for my husband. Site of a Bobby Flay 'Throwdown'.

6. Either Magnolia Bakery or Billy's Bakery for cupcakes.

7. Angelo's in Little Italy on the recommendation of Lindsey and Ferrara's on Andie's recommdation.

8. F.A.O. Schwartz--my husband is hoping to play the ginormous piano like Tom Hanks did in Big.

9. NYC Subway

10. Empire State Building and Chrysler Building

11. SoupMan in Rockefeller Center on the recommendation of my sister.

12. Metropolitan Museum of Art

13. Someplace for souvenirs I can afford...

Also maybe Greenwich Village and Chinatown, depends on how much time we have and how fast we walk. Any other suggestions WELCOME! Thanks to all those who've already contributed.

What a great list of places, I like the mix of iconic stuff, plus things like playing the giant piano!

Lindsey said...

I went with my brother, mom, and stepfather a few years ago, and because of me, we all missed out on the Empire State Building. I am deathly afraid of heights and refused to go up to the top, and of course they didn't want to leave an 18 year old girl alone at the bottom in an unfamiliar city.

I hope you get to visit all of the places on your list! Have fun!!!

Annie said...

Nothing better than a broadway musical! Sounds like you're going to have fun!

oooh - i loved the Met! You gotta plan two days there though to see it all. And i thought the subway was almost as fascinating.

I had such a great time when I went to NYC. I could have lived in Times Square alone. Broadway is an amazing place and I know you'll love any play you go to.

Have a wonderful trip!

Man, it's been so long since I was in NYC that I doubt any of the places I've been to still exist.

Have a great trip and post lots of pictures!!

When I went to Grand Central Station I didn't know I was supposed to actually look up. I'm sure you won't forget..but I had to throw it out there because it was really sad to think about later on! Go me...

ERiCA said...

Ah, very cool! Can't wait to hear how many of these you hit! =)

Vicki said...

NYC, the place I've yet to go and I'm wanting to go so bad. I hope you have a great time and I loved the 13 things. So many of them I could add to my own list. :)

Love the blog.
