New York, I Love You, XOXO I

New York City. I’ve been wanting to live in the city on 5th Avenue or the Upper East Side anywhere between 75th-95th avenue for as long as I can remember. My obsession with NYC skyrocketed after CW’s Gossip Girl. Back in July, I went on a girls trip to NYC and fell in love with it all over again. I was so depressed after I got back that my husband promised me we would take an annual trip to NYC- lucky me, my birthday was coming up so we went again in August. I had gone a few years back with a friend right before Gossip Girl was going to end and we went on the Gossip Girl tour at that time. The one thing I absolutely LOVE about NYC is that it is the ultimate walking city. I love that you can walk anywhere and everywhere if you give yourself enough time- we walked about 10 miles a day!

Here are a few of the things we did and places we went that makes me adore NYC:

Roaming along busy 5th avenue where many of the “first” stores originated:

Central Park strolling:

The amazing macaroons of Ladurée in the Upper East Side of course:

Walking past China Town to the beautiful Brooklyn Bridge:

Visiting the Friends Building:

Carrie’s Apt in Greenwich Village (along with Magnolia Bakery & Spotted Pig):

The view from the top of the Standard at Le Bain:

The sophisticated Russian Tea Room:

Gorgeous Grand Central Station:

King Cole at the fabulous St. Regis:

The delicious and sophisticated Butter restaurant:

My favorite cupcakes from Crumbs Bakery:

Columbus Circle and Hell’s Kitchen:

The intricate details of the Plaza, Palace and Empire Hotels:

The Yummy 99 cent Pizza:

The delicious food and unique champagne blends of Gramercy Tavern & Flute:

And of course, the original Tiffany & Co.

Gossip Girl locations aside, there are plenty of other reasons why I love NYC. With so much art, history, culture and fashion- how could you not love it? XOXO!
