Hello Stradi Girls and Boys !
For my birthday, I really wanted to do something special, so I decided to go to New York. No big deal right? AHAH ! I booked my room at the Bentley Hotel, in the Eastside, next to Queensboro Bridge. It was so amazing to wake up every morning with this view.
Here are a few places you had to go to eat:
- Madangsui (Koren BBQ)
Stores to go shopping:
- Eleni's (amazing cookies and cupcakes)
Places to go:
- Roosevelt Island with the cable
I enjoyed so much walking in the streets and feel the NYC vibes ! It was so sunny the three first days and then snow came, but didn't stay a long time. The High Line is really THE place to walk and feel like you're the queen/king of the town. You can lay down during the walk and breath easy. There's nothing really interesting to do in Roosevelt Island but you have to take the cable or tramway and it really worth the view. I was a bit disappointed about shopping. Prices are not that affordable and there is a lot of H&M/Zara and Co. I think it's better to go in London to shop crazy pieces but New York, the city is the main thing to do when you go there. You have to live the city's riddim. I went there with my mother (so bad my sister couldn't come) and met a friend of her and her adorable daughter Rosario. We were so happy to spend quality time with my godmother who lives in New York. Nothing better than to have someone to show you the city as a real New Yorker AHAH !
Hope you guys enjoyed my tips. If you have any others, just write them down, I'll be happy to read you and go there when I'll be back in New York City :)
