It’s funny. Everytime I have a conversation with friends about NYC these days, it centers around whether one of us would move there. For most of my life I never thought that I would ever consider that city livable. No offense to any New Yorkers… it just didn’t seem like it was for me. But I have completely changed my tune. I’m not packing up my things just yet, and don’t get me wrong, Paris still has my heart but… (and my fellow Francophiles, please forgive me for saying this) to me, NYC is like Paris, but with a much more reasonable commute.

My laundry list of places to visit in New York is still pretty long but I thought I would share a few of my favorites… because, hey, every little bit of help counts, right? All of these places are reliable and either crazy fun or incredibily delicious.

By neighborhood, you’re welcome.
