33 Things I Want To Do While Living In New York

It feels strange to think that exactly this time last year, I was writing this very same post about moving to London. I wanted to make a sort of 'bucket list' before moving to the Big Smoke, so that I always had something to do and so that I remembered all the great things I had been looking forward to. The list served me very well in my first year living in London, so I thought I'd write a new one for my four months living in the Big Apple! You might notice that a few of the 'big ones' such as the Empire State aren't on my list - that's because I did many of them on my first visit to New York City last summer. That's not to say that I won't be doing them again this time, but I thought I'd save my list mostly for new adventures! So with less than a week to go before I fly away from England, here's what's going to keep me busy until Christmas...

  1. Go the the Museum of Modern Art 
  2. Visit Carrie Bradshaw's 'apartment' and take a photo
  3. Figure out the Subway
  4. Visit Central Park Zoo
  5. Go to the Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum 
  6. Eat a Cronut 
  7. Figure out how to add on TAX
  8. Go to the Halloween Dog Parade 
  9. See the Rockefeller Christmas Tree 
  10. Run in Central Park
  11. Explore Soho
