This wasn't my first time visiting New York, but definitely different than what I've experienced before. I think as I've grown, my interests become more parallel with the city (i.e. fast paced social culture, trending fashion and food, & more.)
Here's some of my recommendations from my recent visit.
1) Rustic Table (Cafe/Brunch Food)
2) Ace Hotel (Chill/Study)
3) Sey Coffee (Coffee)
4) The Osprey (Lunch/Drinks)
5) Moxy Hotel (Drinks/Food)
6) Barney's New York (Shopping)
7) Rumble NYC (Workout)
Met some great people, and the hope is I can show them around in my city(ies) sometime.
