12 Hours In New York City
Last month when one of my best friends came to visit me from Texas, we knew we had to plan a day trip to New York City. From Boston, it’s only about a 3-4 hour drive, depending on traffic. I usually always take the bus to New York City for a few reasons. It’s a pain to drive around there/find parking. I’ve done it, there are a million zillion lots you can park in, but they just ever seem to be convenient and they’re almost always sketchy. If you do drive, I recommend having a parking plan before you get there! Usually you can pay less if you book it online as well. There is also the Amtrack train to NYC, but it’ll set you back $200 round trip! We took Bolt Bus & Greyhound. I highly recommend Bolt Bus and I will NEVER take Greyhound again in my life, more about that later though. The total for transportation was only about $50 bucks round trip! The bus dropped us off near the water and we just started walking! One of my favorite things to do in New York City is just to explore. With only 12 hours in New York City here are a few things you need to hit.
We honestly just happened upon this market in Chelsea I highly recommend checking out this one or Chelsea Market. I love supporting local artisans and businesses! Slightly regret leaving without any of this sick vintage jewelry!
IDK about where you live, but in Boston there is no such thing as bottomless brunch so any time I go to another major metropolitan area I look for it! Brunch/breakfast is my favorite meal of the day and then add bottomless drinks? We stopped at Agave, a fusion of modern and southwestern style restaurant by Chef Raul Jaurez. What’s better than pancakes, steak n eggs, and all you can drink margs? Not much I tell you.
Museum or Exhibit
The amount of art in NYC is endless so always try somewhere new every time you go! I really wanted to see the Louis Vuitton “Volez, Voguez, Voyagez – Louis Vuitton” Exhibit before it ends this month. As someone who loves fashion and clothes, I also love learning this history of fashion. The Vuitton family goes back to the 15th century. The exhibit, divided into ten rooms told the Vuitton family story and curated time pieces along the way. The exhibit goes until Jan. 7th so there are still a few days to check it out if you haven’t already!
Walking the Brooklyn Bridge from Manhattan into Brooklyn was something we had our eyes set on all day! Neither one of us had ever done the 1.3 mile walk into Brooklyn before. It was amazing, though even late at night it was packed with tourists like ourselves.
Is this even something I have to explain? Never leave NYC without eating a slice of pizza. Also let’s be real, I was way to hungry to snap a photo first.
