I just returned from one of my favorite cities in the world; New York City! It’s so vibrant and constantly changing that even though I have lived there, and know my way around, I always find new and amazing places. I have stayed at the Andaz Hotel on 5th Ave, which is situated perfectly. Just in front of The Public Library and Bryant Park; where during wintertime, there is an ice skating ring, that’s also surrounded by a Christmas market. Nevertheless, within walking distance there are two major subway stations; Grand Central Station and Times Square, just to get you anywhere.

After doing some field research, here are my favorite spots!

 

Best for shopping:
