New York City
Two Days of Summer in the Big Apple

Let’s be real. It’s impossible to do it all when in NYC. And every time you go back for a visit, there is always something new to do. I did a quick 3 day trip to New York City for a family visit but I lived in New York for five years so I know the city pretty well. In my opinion, here are a few things you should consider as a first timer in New York City during the summer, or fall, or spring…just whenever!
Take the subway 6 direction to Brooklyn Bridge and walk through the bridge. Afterwards head to Brooklyn Bridge Park which is a 5 min from the bridge. The area here is known as Dumbo, and there are a lot of nice restaurants and cafés around the area. You can also enjoy a picnic in the park.
You can also visit the Top of the Rock Observatory. I’ve been there several times but the view is simply breathtaking and never gets old. I would suggest to book the first available time (8:10am) online here.

Also, don’t miss out on the MET’s exhibitions. This summer they were showing the Heavenly Bodies exhibit, showcasing work by icons such as Karl Lagerfeld (for Chanel), Yves Saint Laurent, Jose Galliano (for Dior), Pierpaolo Picciolo (for Valentino), and Alexander McQueen (for Givenchy). All work showcased is inspired by the catholic church. This was also the theme for this year’s MET Gala.
