Staying in a prime location and hiring a bike are my main tips for New York City. Staying in the wonderful Hudson Hotel was perfect. We were only a few seconds’ walk from Central Park, and central to almost everything NYC. A short walk from the hotel entrance and my soul would light up brighter than Times Square. The yellow taxis showed the path to any destination and subway rides proved to be adventures in themselves.
THINGS TO DO
Bike riding through the vibrant golden autumn leaves or paddling a boat on the lake in Central Park, walking along the High Line, viewing the city from the top of the Rockefeller building, visiting the Google building, taste-testing sidewalk $3 hotdogs, inhaling the aroma of warm, toffee-coated nuts (the best smell in the world!), drinking more cups of Starbucks than one ever thought imaginable and overlooking the chaos at Grand Central Station – New York captured my heart and will hold a bit of it forever.
