12 Things You Must Do In: NYC


The island of Manhattan is a large and overwhelming place. So we’ve reduced our three week trip there to these 12 Things You Must Do…

  1. Take the Staten Island Ferry from Manhattan. Best way to see Statue of Liberty and harbour view of Manhattan for free!
  2. Wait for a meal at the Momofuku Noodle Bar: try the “Momfuku Ramen” and the steamed pork bun.
  3. Go to the top of Rockerfeller Centre, give the Empire State Building a miss.
  4. Take any of the “Enthusiastic Gourmet’s” food tours for an exciting insiders view of great nosh spots.
  5. Go to Katz’s Deli.
  6. See a New York “Knicks” basketball game at Madison Square Garden  – try to spot the celebrities sitting courtside.
  7. Go to the Union Square Markets.
  8. See a broadway show (“Fela!” was amazing).
  9. Try a bagel at “Absolute Bagels”.
  10. If it’s Winter go ice-skating in Bryant Park. The cheapest and least crowded rink, very beautiful too.
  11. Try out the health-conscious “Babycakes” carrot cupcake. These baked delights will alter your view on “Gluten-Free” and “Vegan” baked goods.
  12. Take the Subway, the bus and don’t be afraid of cabs – they’re so reasonably priced.

Share with me some of your “Must-See’s/Eat’s/Do’s” for NYC, or any other city for that matter.

    I’m flattered you stopped in at my blog Babycakes! Your baked goods are a definite “must-do”. I bought your recipe book whilst there and have lent it to a friend who is gluten free and egg free because of allergies… she’s very excited!
