Staying in Williamsburg
Yup. Except in America they call it the Big Egg Plant. Weird.
Do they have an M&M world??
(Would love to go - one day!)
(enjoy your trip)
A few insider tips from my visits:
- Visit “Time” Square
- Have a trip up the Empire State building
- Take a walk in Centre Parks
- Hail a yellow taxi “cab”
- Look at the beautiful Statue of Liberty
Booked some flights to the large apple myself for next year. I’ll post this thread again in about 6 months time.
Some places and food I have saved.
Dia Beacon Museum
Moma (and the design shops)
Ivan Ramen (2 locations)
Xi’an Famous Foods (2 locations)
Jajaja for vegan Mexican food
Champs for vegan breakfast food
Yes. It’s very near the Hershey’s store.
Can vouch for Xi’an. Quite busy, but very good
Bao in London and the Bauhaus Archiv in Berlin are two of my favourite places in the world so a combo of the two would be beyond a dream.
Check out what’s on at Otto’s Shrunken Head. Currently my favourite place for drinking and seeing odd indie bands.
Otto’s is on my list already. Tuesday night club looks good. Thanks for all the tips everyone. Also I have got to know the base player in a NY band called Pill and he has told me that they are playing s secret gig in Brooklyn while I am in NY. It’s all coming together nicely. Just need to try to blag tickets for the sold out Daughters (hard core band) gig.
Daughters are playing at St Vitus in Brooklyn.
Do the high line too.
That would be amazing if you could swing that for us. Actually four of us which I assume could be tricky… Or whatever you could get even if only a couple of tickets. Thank you xylo!
Done the high line in the summer. Loved it.
We stayed in Greenpoint earlier this year and that description is spot on. Great neighbourhood. Spent a couple of nights in St Vitus which was raging.
I know Greenpoint quite well as a friend of mine has a jewellery workshop in Greenpoint. Nice neighborhood.
Thank you littleforts. Some great tips.
