NEW YORK - FOR ALL YOU LUCKY BASTARDS WHO ARE GOING IN THE FUTURE :-)



BEST SHOPPING: SOHO/THE VILLAGE/BROADWAY
TOPSHOP : 478 BROADWAY & BROOM
AMERICAN APPAREL : 712 & 429 BROADWAY
FOREVER 21 : 578 BROADWAY
URBAN OUTFITTERS : 628 BROADWAY
APPLE STORE : 767 5TH AVE. & 1981 BROADWAY


BREAKFAST:
EUROPA CAFE / CAFE EUROPA : HAS SEVERAL LOCATIONS :-)
LUNCH:
SAKS FIFTH AVE. ON FIFTH AVE.
DINNER:
OUTBACK STEAKHOUSE (PERSONAL FAVORITE ;-) ) , HAS SEVERAL LOCATIONS


MUSEUM:
WE'VE ONLY BEEN TO THE MOMA, BECAUSE THIS MUSEUM HAS MY KIND OF ART
IT IS AMAZING, I REALLY RECOMMEND IT!



HOW TO MAKE SURE YOU'VE SEEN IT ALL?
GET TICKETS FOR THE HOP ON/HOP OFF BUS (WE TOOK THE RED ONE)
WE HAD TICKETS FOR 3 DAYS, PLUS 3 FREE ADMISSIONS TO A CULTURAL-THING
OF YOUR CHOICE. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS!
WE USED THE TICKETS FOR A BOAT TOUR (STATUE OF LIBERTY), TOP OF THE ROCK
(FOR THE VIEW) AND THE MOMA. WE'VE ALSO BEEN ON TOP OF THE EMPIRE STATE
BUILDING, BECAUSE THIS GIVES YOU A DIFFERENT VIEW, ESPECIALLY BY NIGHT.



AND NOW A FEW BASIC TIPS:
- NEW YORK (SURPRISINGLY) HAS A LOT OF 'TOURISTIC' SHOPS.
YOU CAN RECOGNIZE THEM BY THE STUFFED WINDOWS, BUT IF YOU WANT TO BE
SURE, JUST LOOK IF THEY SELL IPHONES OR IPADS
(AT APPLE STORES THEY HAVE WAITING LINES FOR THOSE .. )
SO IF YOU NEED A NEW MEMORYCARD (LIKE WE DID), JUST GO TO WALGREENS
(LIKE WE DID).
- IF IT'S DARK OUTSIDE (AFTER A SHOW OR MUSICAL OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT)
TAKE A CAB. NEW YORK IS A SAFE CITY, BUT WITH A CAB YOU'RE ALWAYS SURE TO
GET TO THE RIGHT PLACE ;-)
- A THING ABOUT CABS: ALWAYS TAKE THE YELLOW ONES!
IT STARTS AT THE AIRPORT: PEOPLE ASKING IF YOU NEED A 'CAB'.
THEY CHARGE YOU MORE, AND IT IS SAFER TO TAKE A YELLOW ONE.



IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, PLEASE DO ASK :-)

XOXO
THE GIRL

ja, het is echt super!
ik ben er vrij lang geweest, bijna een week, en als je eenmaal begint te wennen aan de stad is het echt als een tweede thuis!
you're gonna love it!
