Welcome To New York

I find myself lucky enough to live relatively close to New York City were I can take frequent yearly trips to visit the Bustling Apple....As my trips occur more often, I like to venture out to new territories that the city has to offer.

My time in the city is always limited, but I make the most out of the visit squeezing in as many "must-see, must-try" venues & activities.

This past July, I re-visited NYC & explored Chelsea, SOHO, & The Upper East Side. SOHO was my all-time favorite spot. The neighborhood was quaint, quiet, trendy, & dog friendly.

Here are a few of the 2015 Summer in the City stops I made--you must see for yourself!


Laduree Macaroons
864 Madison Avenue  (French Macaroon Specialist, Sweet Shop & Restaurant)

 Little Prince
199 Prince St. (Chic Bistro with adorable outside eating area)

The Plaza & The Eloise Boutique (Old Hollywood glamour hotel/residence with world renowned restaurant, The Palm Court, a bar,The Oak Bar, plenty of shops & eateries downstairs as well as home to Kay Thompson's creation, Eloise)

Rockefeller Center (Shops, Eateries, & NBC Universal Studious)

p.s. As I was walking past Rockefeller Center a white vintage Rolls Royce was driving by followed by a white limo. Inside the Royce was a blushing bride & groom drinking bubbly from champagne flutes.

SOHO Grand Dog Park/Hotel (Fun & Very Pet Friendly!)
310 West Broadway


The Upper East Side 

High Line Park (An bird's eye view of Manhattan--a park in the sky!)

Well, I know this is only a slice of the Big Apple pie, but if you just take in one piece at a time you'll see & experience all sorts of adventures--big & small!
