Summer holidays are approaching, and we’ll soon be packing our bags for a week in New York City. We’ve been once before, and have some good ideas as to how we’ll spend our time, but I’m also interested in readers’ recommendations.
Have You Been to the Big Apple?
If so, what made your time in NYC memorable?
Was it the theatre? Or perhaps baseball, shopping, dining, museums, galleries, music or Central Park?
Parks and Hidden Gems
I’ll do some catching up on photographer Susan Portnoy’s Insatiable Traveler blog before departure. An accomplished photographer whose destinations range from Africa to Cuba and beyond, Portnoy lives in New York City. On her site, she has a section dedicated to Rediscovering New York.
Do you have a favourite park or spot to enjoy?
I love capturing shots of interesting buildings and leafy neighbourhoods. I’ll even own to watching Million Dollar Listing New York, which showcases gorgeous properties as well as some big personalities. Since I’m guessing that Fredrick, Luis and Ryan won’t know or care that we’ll be in their city, I’ll be relying on our Concierge for advice on this front.
To Market, to Market …
I find it a treat to make your way through markets in different cities, and have my eye on Union Square Greenmarket, which is open Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Then there’s the New York Botanical Garden Greenmarket in the Bronx, which has just opened for the season. This market is housed on the grounds of New York Botanical Garden, which is celebrating its 125th anniversary this year and also offers free admission on Wednesdays. Do you have any market tips?
