New York City Bucketlist

New York City is a place with endless possibilities. For someone who gets bored easily, this is the perfect city to stay entertained. Classic things stick around, but there’s also something new to discover every day. I have a Bucketlist on this blog already, but I think NYC deserves its own! I’ve been to the city six times already, including a month-long internship, so some things are already crossed off. I’m hoping to cross more things off this list when I visit in a couple weeks! Thanks to surrealnyc for the idea! NYC Bucketlist Header

    Skating at Rockefeller Center is so fun, especially when the tree is up at Christmastime, you definitely get those holiday warm & fuzzies! It is expensive and there is usually a long line, but totally worth doing once- I hope you get the chance! I have gone skating there as late as March, no tree obviously but still fun and much more manageable crowds. Great list!

    One thing that’s on my list: get a key to gramercy park!

    If you do Smorgasburg on Sunday, it’s held at Brooklyn Bridge Park–you can walk to or from there over the bridge and knock out two birds with one stone! :)
