Travel Guide: New York
Posted on 23 August 2017
Our Marketing Manager, Camilla shares her guide to the Big Apple.
Many didn't believe I had never been to New York City before. It's been a long time coming and it was everything I expected and more; crazy, smelly and busy, but that's what gives this city its character. What else do you go to New York for but for food, Broadway shows and shopping!
You can't go to New York and not have a bagel. Order 'The Classic' board.
Everything from noodles to doughnuts, this indoor food hall close to The High Line offers an array of cuisines. Grab a taco from Los Tacos No.1 then make your way to the seafood section for fresh Maine lobster and oysters.
If you love eggs, this is a must! A cosy cafe with finger licking fried chicken.
Hit up this foodie market in Williamsburg (on every Saturday). Make sure you go with an empty stomach, the portions are big and options aplenty.
Albeit a bit touristy, ascending to the 86th floor of the Rockefeller Centre gives you 360-degree views of New York City. Tip: buy your tickets online in advance.
From The Book of Morman to Wicked, the choices of Broadway shows are endless. Tip: head to TKTS in Times Square to purchase discounted tickets on the day.
The Met steps have been made iconic from Gossip Girl but what's inside is what counts, over 5000 years of art from around the world.
Take a stroll and people watch at Sheep Meadow. If you're feeling romantic, take a row boat around the lake.
This cute boutique in Williamsburg stocks a curated collection of dainty jewellery and gifts.
Momofuku Milk Bar
For a (treat yo self) soft serve and grab a few cookies for friends back home.
This weekend-only indoor market in Brooklyn sells everything from handmade jewellery, arts & crafts items, to antiques and vintage threads. It's just a short walk from Smorgasburg food market so fuel up on food then shop!
