Why New York will Always Be the Place to Be

New York City becomes a real winter wonderland during the holidays: shiny lights in the streets of Manhattan; crowds AWEd at the exquisite window displays & decorative windows on the Fifth Avenue. The Rockefeller Christmas tree glowing beneath the NY skyline..

It’s definitely the most wonderful time of the year.

Let me take you through the visuals with Frank Sinatra’s New York, New York lyrics in mind.

“Start spreading the news
I am leaving today
I want to be a part of it
New York, New York”

“These vagabond shoes

Are longing to stray

Right through the very heart of it

New York, New York”

Macy’s in the Snoopy spirit and the city lighting up into a spectacular sight.

“I want to wake up in a city
That doesn’t sleep
And find I’m king of the hill
Top of the heap”

Times Square. I am loving the bright lights & 24/7 atmosphere.

“These little town blues
Are melting away
I’ll make a brand new start of it
In old New York”

“If I can make it there
I’ll make it anywhere
It’s up to you
New York, New York”

Out and about in Soho.

My number one recommendation for brunch is Buvette, a French pint-sized bistro serving the yummiest bites. Try the salmon scrambled eggs on toast, the prosciutto scrambled eggs and a cup of fresh orange juice.

“New York, New York
I want to wake up in a city
That never sleeps
And find I’m a number one
Top of the list
King of the hill
A number one”

Soho’s treasures.

“These little town blues
All melting away
I am gonna make a brand new start of it
In old New York”

Brooklyn bridge; one of the oldest bridges in the US with a breathtaking view.

“And if I can make it there
I’m gonna make it anywhere
It’s up to you
New York, New York, New York”
