My Life in the Big Apple

This is all about my life and experiences since I moved to New York.


My Life in the Big Apple

Member Rating 0 out of 5 by JasonnarT on March 6, 2008

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... ${QuickSuggestions} My restaurant suggestions are Resto, Les Halles, Primehouse, China Fun, Vegetarian's Paradise 2, Esca, Felice, and John's Pizzeria.

The best shows on and off Broadway are The Lion King, Avenue Q, Altar Boyz, Stomp, The Producers, and Wicked. ${BestWay} The best way to get around the city is public transportation. The subway may not be the cleanest way to get around but it's the most efficient. Buses are slow - especially crosstown. Cabs are great only if you feel like splurging and have time to spend sitting in traffic.

Duvet

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

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

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.

The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)

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!
