A simple guide of the city and a few of my favorite hangouts.
  1. Cafe Lalo
    Saturday evening sister dates.
  2. Crawford and Doyle
    The coziest independent bookstore I used to frequent when my sister lived on the Upper East Side.
  3. Walking through Central Park
    After dressing in Lululemon head to toe, take a stroll through the the park.
  4. New York Public Library
    Where dreams come true and career decisions are made. Literally, I read my acceptance letter for a masters program in library and information science in the children's room.
  5. Serendipity
    Frozen Hot Chocolate and referencing the entire movie of Serendipity with my sister.
  6. Brooklyn Flea Market
    Spending a saturday looking for treasures, snacking on excellent food and haggling.
  7. Dean and Deluca
    Thanks to Felicity, I like shopping for groceries, the perfect ingredients to make a gift basket for your girlfriend, mother or sister and desserts.
  8. Kate Spade
    I'm an addict. Fashion, bags, shoes, home accent pieces, fragrances and office supplies.
  9. Natural History Museum
    It's safe to say, it's my favorite place in the city. Where the magic happens.
  10. Zitomers
    Every woman's dream, it's he god of drugstores!!!
  11. Guggenheim & The Met
    For the art historian in me. My third favorite hangout, meandering through the galleries and the gift shop, oh the gift shop.
  12. The Eloise Shop at the Plaza
    She's the original badass and one of the best literary characters in children's literature. Being a children's librarian, I want everything
  13. The Strand
    Whether browsing through the stacks at the original location or on the sidewalks of Central Park, this bookstore is my favorite place in the city.
  14. Lunch at Bergdorfs
    For a day of shopping with your mother and a quick and light lunch.
  15. Grand Central Station
    Travel, food, art and people watching.
