I love New York.
Maybe it’s because I was born in New Jersey and lived my pre-K years with a view of the Manhattan skyline.
Or maybe it’s just because NYC is awesome.
There’s always something new to see–and taste!
For me last weekend, that was at the Big Gay Ice Cream Shop (East Village)
Order the Salty Pimp (don’t be shy)
Chocolate dipped soft serve injected with salted caramel (even the cone–which can be gluten free if you need!)
It’s SO good.
And zero guilt, because in NYC you can just walk it off
Which we did in Central Park!
And the High Line
And at High Rock Park, Staten Island (just a ferry ride away)
And lots of walking on the streets!
Luckily a good coffee boost is easy to find in NYC.
My latest fave is the cappuccino at 12 Corners (Lower East Side)
Coffee that shimmers!
I loved this cappuccino so much I went back for another the next morning. 🙂
(Bonus gluten free tip: Tu-Lu’s Gluten-Free Bakery has the best coffee cake.)
But by far my most FAVORITE reason to visit New York now?
It’s where my daughter lives. 🙂
Where have you been hanging out lately? Any cool treats or sights to share?
