My Life in the Big Apple

Overview

Quote:
The best highlights of the city are the occasional CELEBRITY sightings. Since I've lived here I've seen Victoria Beckham, Jessica Alba, Jimmy Fallon, Gastineau Girls, TONs of America's Next Top Model contestants, among others... Quick Tips: My restaurant suggestions are Resto, Les Halles, Primehouse, China Fun, Vegetarian's Paradise 2, Esca, Felice, and John's Pizzeria.

The subway may not be the cleanest way to get around but it's the most efficient. Buses are slow - especial...Read More

Duvet

Attraction

Quote:
Duvet has a great energy at night along with delicious food and drinks. Make sure you don't fall asleep on one of the many BEDS you and your friends can lounge on. I highly recommend you know someone at the door or reserve a table as the line outside can get quite long.

Les Halles

Restaurant

Quote:
Les Halles is a typical Parisian Brasserie located on Park Ave/29th St (also downtown NYC). It is home to world famous chef Anthony Bourdain and owned by Phillipe Lajaunie. The service is mediocre but the hearty portions and taste make up for any pompous waiters. Make sure to try the frites!!

John's Pizzeria

Restaurant

John's Pizzeria ("NO SLICES") is a great casual place to go with the family. The pizza is amazing and I hear the meatballs are delicious. The high prices are well worth the taste of this local favorite.

MoMA is the BEST museum in the city. The structure is very avant garde and chic. The place is clean and easy to get through. You won't get lost and have to spend days to see everything like The Met. The exhibitions are always changing so even if you have been here before, make sure you check it out again!
