Number 48: Walk the Brooklyn Bridge

The Brooklyn Bridge: one of the most iconic structures in all of New York City. This historic landmark was opened in 1883, but nowadays is a hotbed for meandering tourists, wedding photographers, and the random cycling commuter. It also serves as a bridge for vehicles to traverse the East River to and from Brooklyn. This is […]

Number 24: Walk the High Line

  The High Line Park, what was once a rail line is now a cool garden and walking path. Walking the line takes you through the West Side’s Meatpacking District and Chelsea, both very nice neighborhoods so feel free to stop off for some shopping or food. Along the way you get views of the […]

Number 38: Tour Columbia

The idea of going to an Ivy League school is a glamorous notion. I wanted to take the opportunity to tour the Columbia Teacher’s College while I am living in the city for a glimpse at a possibility. A possibility of myself sitting in an Ivy League getting an education from one of the best […]

Number 29: Find the Alice in Wonderland Sculpture

This is a hidden Central Park gem featuring the beloved characters from Alice in Wonderland. Located on the east side of the park near street. The sulpture is right by a quaint little duck pond, so this is a perfect place to stop and read a book or have a quiet conversation.  Until next time…

Number 34: See the Christmas Decorations

The main spots to hit are the shops on 5th Avenue, Rockefeller Center, Union Square Christmas market, South Street Seaport (which also has a giant tree with no crowd) or stroll through any ritzy neighborhood. […]

Number 9: Be Apart of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade

This one I will not be able to cross off because I am going home for Thanksgiving but, I did manage to walk by Macy’s to see the main event being set up! That’s the area where the participants will be performing during the parade. Macy’s is beautifully decorated with fancy window displays and a […]

Number 6: See Shakespeare in the Park

I unintentionally crossed this one off the bucket list. Let me tell this brief story.  So it all began with us killing time before meeting friends in the East Village. We were aimlessly walking around midtown, looking for a place to sit, when we walked into Bryant Park, which has tons of seating and is […]

Number 5: Be Apart of Jimmy Fallon’s Audience

Slight change here, we went to Seth Meyers instead of Fallon. This post will be about my experience in a late night audience. How to get tickets: I knew that I wanted to go to one of the late night shows that tape in NYC. Of all the late night talk shows only three tape […]
