Reasons I Loved New York This Week-Vol. 4

-Rollerskaters in Central Park-People of all different sorts skate around and dance in front of hundreds of (bewildered and amazed) spectators. There's no better place for people watching in the world! If you ever visit NY (or if you live here!) You have to check it out.
-Arturo's-You don't come here for the food (although it's pretty decent). You come for the live jazz, old school NY feel, awesome bartender named Tony. If you ever go there, tell Tony Sam sent ya. He'll have no clue what you mean! haha!
-Jeffrey's-An adorable, painfully hip restaurant in the West Village owned by the same people as Joseph Leonard (which is also awesome). Sat at the bar and slurped down some oysters and munched on cheese and toast. Yum!
-Comedy Cellar-"The Place Where Lots of Famous People Have Performed". Not their official tag line, but it's true! Great place for some laughs (get there early to score a table in the front if you want the comedians to make fun of you!)
-Jaume Plensa's "Echo" (a.k.a. the giant head sculpture) in Madison Square Park- I don't know if it's because I have a big head and I can relate, or what....but seriously every time I walk by this sculpture, I am mesmerized. It is beautiful!


  1. adding arturo's and jeffrey's to the list!

  2. YAY! the list is a VERRRY long one! you might need to extend your trip (like, for forever!) :)
