Post subject: I am going to New York......
I have only been talking about going since Sex & the City came on the screen years ago.... so I have finally talked my sister into going with me and since neither of us have been I need your help ladies.
Where do we go/ do / see etc.. ??????
We are there Thur - Monday and staying off Times Square.
We plan to spend a day in Woodbury Common on the Friday and apart from that have no plans.
Any suggestions on where to eat, have a few drinks etc would be great .

Oh god, you'll LOOOOOVE it.
I didn't do this but wish i had - go to the TOP of the rockerfella centre. You get the same wonderful views as you do from the top of the Empire State BUT obviously the views INCLUDE the empire state. Makes wonderful photos.
The famous cake shop on Bleeker Street (can't remember the exact name of it, but it IS famous).
Abercrombie & Fitch stores (SOOOO much cheaper than the one in London)
Afternoon Tea at the Plaza
Statue of Liberty
Grand Central Station
New York Public Library (it was in Ghostbusters, Day After Tomorrow and, of course, Sex and the City the Movie)

Ya I heard the Rockafella Centre was better so will def do that.
Are you on about Magnolia Bakery? Not heard of it but googled it and sounds yummy?
Abercroombie is a must cause we have none here in Ireland and I can imagine the difference in prices from when I was in London. There is just soo much to do and I cant wait to get there. Its 7 wks away and I feel like a child coming up to Christmas.

hi, I would definately recommend the city sights double decker tour bus - theres several different tours, we took the downtown tour it takes u all the major sights- macys, empire state building, rockerfeller centre, battery park, greenwich village, china town,times square, wall street...... The tour guide was really informative too.
That was $39 last year, you can jump on and off at loads of stops too.
hope u have fun x
