So its off to the Big Apple for me in two weeks and I'm dumbstruck with amount of amazing things to do! So many! Google maps and vpike.com have been my sneak previews into the breathtaking city that is New York and I can't believe I'm going. I've been asked to go for work to attend Accessories, The Show (1-3 August 2010 at the Javits Centre) to show some of our new products and colours. So, I have two days holiday I've been doing a lot of research as to what I want to see and where I want to go, but there's just so much! So here's my proposed list of touristy things to do (I'm the luckiest, thank you stars!):
The Museum of Modern Art
It's one of the art museums I've always wanted to see, along with the Guggenheim which is also on my list. I want to see all the beautiful masterpieces that I learnt about in History of Art.
Top of the Rock
Not only is it the setting of one of my favourite TV shows (30 Rock), but the view of the entire city is sure to blow one's mind.
New York Botanical Gardens
Nothing like getting in touch with nature than in the middle of a gigantic bustling city. This greenhouse looks like a heavenly piece of lacy architecture, I wish it was my home.
Broadway Theatre District
I don't know if I'll have the time to see a show, but I definitely want to do the walking tour around this area. It looks like it has that magical stage feeling that makes my heart jitter like school plays.
And Madison Avenue and Fashion Avenue and all those wonderful places for people like me who love fashion. I plan on doing a tour of the whole garment district...and loving it.
I hear its the food and cultural hotspot and is also a great place for shopping. I'm there.
Well here's hoping I get to see all these lovely things and loads more, I'm going to have to do some serious time management and plan this trip to the minute. I've got my comfy sneakers packed.
Please give me suggestions if you know of any other spectacular spectacles worth having a look at. I really would like to know if there are any good gigs happening while I'm there but can't seem to find anything out online. Ideas are welcome.
