A brief tour of NYC

For Jenny, to whom I promised some recommendations.

I visited NYC in January 2018 during the bombocyclone, whatever that is, so it was really cold. Nevertheless we ploughed on and explored as much as possible in our week away. There follows a photo diary summary of the places I would revisit:

Food

Benjamin Steakhouse 41st Street

Classic American steak house where you can also enjoy a Bloody Mary and some oysters

But if you like oysters, go to the place in Grand Central Terminal, immense:

Milk bar

We went to W56th Street and it has a ‘secret’ cocktail and snack bar at the back, so you can go there first then get a crack pie at the front!

Egg cream at Dean and Deluca – who knows what it is, but it’s good!

Eataly, solid Italian food, this one’s near the WTC

Dr Smood for the Aesthetic, bit healthy though…

Places

Peacock touching at Central Park Zoo

As a fellow nerd, you must visit the New York Public Library

Oculus at One WTC for some futuristic shopping

Getting off the island: Brooklyn beach and lots of boating!

Including from Port Imperial in Jersey, apparently the World’s best ferry…!

Downtown Jersey is pretty cute

As well as Brooklyn of course

Hope you enjoy your visit!
