because who doesn't love new york?

This Friday, I'll be heading to New York City for a week of seeing friends, visiting my favorite spots, and working from our Sugar NY office — and I could not be more excited. I've said it a million times, but I really, really love New York. Last time I visited, there was a fabulous Something Borrowed party, a Times Square kiss moment, strolls through Central Park, some tourist-y stops, and a morning at the Statue of Liberty. For this trip, I'd like to ask all of you: What's your favorite New York spot?

Coffee shop, bookstore, museum, park — I'd love to hear any and all suggestions!

ive never been to new york, but my sister said there is a beatles memorial thing called strawberry fields which is based on the one in england, and is very chilled out and hippyish. theres a guy there that plays guitar. :)

I highly recommend the super greasy, yet SUPER delicious pizza that is at the bottom of the stairs when you enter Penn Station. SO good!!

I love NY, too! I was just there last month, and I've been missing it ever since. It's hard to narrow down my favorite spots, but I have to say that during my last visit, I really loved Washington Square Park - just sitting there either to people watch or read a book. I took a Central Park foot tour and that was really great, too! (The tour guide gave a lot of fun facts about NY and Central Park.) I also stayed in Brooklyn for the first time and fell in love with the place. There's a great cafe called Ted & Honey in Carroll Gardens - best breakfast sandwich I've had in a long, long time. And the ambience is just cozy and lovely! Have fun on your trip! Wish I could be there right now. It must be especially beautiful with all the holiday decorations.

We were just in NY and had such a great time. Top of the Rock was my favorite. Also went over into Brooklyn to the Brooklyn Bridge Park. The view of Manhattan from there is amazing. Also DUMBO ... being able to see the empire state building PERFECTLY from under the Manhattan bridge is picture perfect. There are pictures on my blog :) Have fun!

When I interned there one of my favourite memories is of a dinner I had at Tao. They have a huge Buddha in the restaurant that is incredible. And the food is yummy. Also there is a really cool little tiny pie shop on the LES (I think) called "Pie shop" that has the best pies to eat after a night out. I also love magnolia bakery. And shake shack. And Burger Shopper (this is down near wall street)...surprisingly everything is food centred!

But food aside I also love just walking around NYC and discovering places randomly. Have a fabulous and safe trip/journey. :-)
