NYC: prep list

Hi guys,

As you can read in my New York state of mind post about NYC, this post will be a great help to myself, though I hope it will inspire you guys to visit NYC yourself or maybe get to know a few places you haven’t heard of before. It will kind of be a post “under construction” since I’m adding new places to visit each time one pops up. When I return back home I’ll share as many pictures and reviews of these places and foods as possible in another blog post. For now, I’m happy to learn about new places from any of you who’ve been to NYC before 🙂 Shout! 

The orange one in the middle is where I’ll be staying in a few weeks!! So excited!

P.s. Since the actual blog post about my trip will take a while, you’ll “probably” find enough pictures on my instagram along the way ;).

    Top of the rock bij Rockefeller center vond ik een mooier uitzicht dan bij empire state building omdat je dan ook central park kan zien. Je moet ook ‘s avonds zorgen dat je in brooklyn bent zodat je de skyline van Manhattan kan zien tijdens de zonsondergang. Mooi plekje is Brooklyn Park (tussen brooklyn bridge en Manhattan bridge). Veel plezier alvast, ik heb er 8 dagen genoten van deze stad!
