Hey guys - I'm sure we all have one on our dog-eared itineraries that we have brought back home with us , , but has anybody recently been to NY with a list of "didn't do's" - you know , the ringed or highlighted " must sees " that you just didn't have time to see ? ...... The attractions/restaurants/bars or shows that you definately are doing next time !
Now I'm not talking full itineraries here or a list of the whole of NYC , but genuine missed on this trip attractions.
Thought it would be fun to share.
Ours were .....
Eats - Brasserie 1605 at the Crowne Plaza , mainly because this is where we stayed and I had read some good reviews, it had a view of TS too ( we did have breakfast there one morning tho)
Patsy's @ 56th St btw Broadway & 8th Ave ( an old haunt of Frank Sinatras - I love that era of NY)
Brekky at Astro's ( read on TA that they do a great eggs benedict) Or breakfast at Cranberry cafe
Chinatown Ice Cream Factory
Lombardis and Ferrara bakery (still not sampled a cannoli )
79th St Boatbasin
Drinks - 230 fifth ,Top of the Strand , Upstairs at the Kimberley,Ink 48 ,or Salon de Ning ( I swore blind that I would do a rooftop bar this trip - but ....no time !)
