I was having coffee with a friend a couple of weeks ago and sharing with her that I’ve had this crazy urge to plan a trip to New York City lately. I’ve only visited New York once in my life (circa 2008) but it continues to have this crazy strange pull on me.
I dream about booking a ticket and escaping to the city on the regular. I wrote about this New York phenomenon in a post “Bigger Than My Body” back in 2012.
A few hours after we had coffee my friend texted me and said, “If you were serious about wanting to go to NYC for a weekend, I’m planning on going in a few weeks and you’re seriously welcome to come.” To which I replied, “I was serious!” Next thing I knew we had flights booked for a long weekend in New York.
We’re super lucky to be staying with her brother in SoHo. I’m so excited to get a “neighborhood feel” for New York instead of staying in a hotel. We met to plan our trip today and decided that instead of trying to do our own research on what we wanted to do…I would ask you guys! So for all of my NYC area readers and those who travel there frequently, I would LOVE your suggestions for how we should spend our long weekend. Anything from restaurants to unique fitness classes to shows to museums…whatever goes!
Please help! 🙂
