Here are some Things to do in NYC 🙂 This 1st of a “Things to do in NYC” is the BASICS. I will do more in depth videos on neighborhoods like Harlem, Brooklyn, Lower East Side which will include shopping, entertainment, eating, all that 🙂 But for now I hope you find this helpful and excited about exploring NYC. I didn’t “forget” to list anything. This is just the first video and trust their are a million things to do. Sorry for not including Brooklyn. I rarely go out there and didn’t have footage to include in this video. But here goes!
As for the things I listed check them out here:
Statue of Liberty, is located on Ellis Island. It’s since been reopened
Central Park is cliche and a MUST! Check out the Boat House this summer and rent a paddle boat for $12/hr. Cash only and a $20 deposit is required
Magnolia Bakery has an amazing to die for Banana Pudding that used to be so secret which is now another MUST HAVE while in town
Katz Deli is a historical landmark that happens to be famous for their sandwiches. Try the pastrami if you’re into that…I’m not :/ Yes this is a tourist destination but it’s a part of NYC’s history hence a MUST!
Patricia Field is a NYC fashion fixture! Made famous for her costume designing in The Devil Wears Prada and Sex and the City: the Movie and sequel, her boutique is another MUST. I love playing dressup here and splurging on accessories!
Need to get around? Rent a bike! I have yet to try this but it seems fabulous! Save your feet and cover more ground. These bikes and bike spots are all over the city. A perfect way to burn calories and see more of the city faster.
Caracas! This happens to be a fav spot of mine! It’s uber small and the lines can be long but I love the food. Yes it’s fried and oh so good! I’ve never had an Arepa until I came here and the prices are perfect for us budget minded peeps Try it! just read their yelp reviews!
Summer in NYC isn’t really summer until you get your butt on a rooftop. My pick was Jimmy Rooftop. Sunday’s after 3pm are bomb! Amazing music courtesy of DJ Cato. I believe it is doorman discretion, which means, dress your best and don’t travel with a bunch of dudes. You get an amazing view of the sun setting over the Hudson River and you get to splash around in the pool if you so choose. I chose this spot because I used to work here and loved it!
Yes! Go to Church! After you party it up Saturday night or Sunday afternoon bring your sinful behind to this awesome church! You don’t have to be religious to attend. This is a non-denominal church and people from all over the world come here for the amazing sermons and not to mention the interior. This Church is a converted theatre and a must see. Now go and pray!
My spot! We in my hood now. You MUST go to Orange Beauty Supply! I used to buy all my hair products here when I had hair and you def need to buy a wig here. I take all my gurls here and hook them up with a fabulous synthetic or human hair wig just cause!
Apollo!!! You MUST go here on amateur night! It’s historical! You either boo or cheer for the talent on stage. You must have an opinion! Quiet indifference is not tolerated 🙂
A real life YouTube comment board in live action! I’ve been here countless times and it’s a great way to get the energy up!
