      1. Go to International Center of Photography, see their exhibition and buy a book of your favorite      
             photographer in the museum store. They change their exhibitions every other month and if you ever     
            see they have one by Elliott Erwitt; I recommend you to see it will all of my heart.
2. Eat corn with chili and lime together with a Corona at Café Habana in SoHo. I just love this Cuban place; their food, music and the lively atmosphere.
3. Walk through Central Park and see Strawberry Fields, Jackie Onassis reservoir and meet the squirrels.
4. Walk Bleecker Street from West Village to Soho, have a coffee and a mango salad at Angelique. The streets are filled with high ends stores, coffee shops and nice restaurants.
5. Eat a cupcake at Magnolia Bakery (favorite: chocolate with vanilla topping)
6. Go to a Jets or Giants game in the summer time. Arrive early and get to see the “tailgating” which is a many hour-long barbeque. Buy a foam finger.
7. Go to the cinema and order the largest popcorn they got. Try Ziegfeld Cinema I Midtown.

11. Eat at the rooftop of STK in Meatpacking in summertime and see the astonishing sunset over Manhattan and New Jersey.
12. Go to 5 Ninth, a cozy café in Meatpacking. They have the nicest backyard where you can sit and chill with a glass of wine.
13. Have Cocktails at The Standard/The Boom Boom room and see NY by night (even from the toilets.) Every night they have live jazz/blues performance, it’s like beeing in Mad Men for a night.
14. Have a cocktail/punch at Maharlika (ask for the one with absinth, it’s amazing). The food is also worth trying when you are looking for something new and different, Filipino Cuisine.1

24. Eat asian fusion at one of these two extraordinary restaurants: Buddakhan in Meatpacking, truly fantastic Asian fusion. You can choose from several courses or pick one of their set menus. The middle menu is more than enough. Or/and at Tao and order several small dishes to share. Their cocktails are also definitely worth trying. Take a photo next to the Buddah.
25. Eat the best pizza ever at Grimaldis, which is right under Brooklyn Bridge at Brooklyn side. Mix whatever you prefer of meat, vegetables and cheese. And enjoy!
26. See the Statue of Liberty and Staten Island. The view from the ferry over to Manhattan is truly like a Kodak Moment.
27. Experience the amazing memorial made by Snøhetta. Also, in 2012 Snøhetta will reconstruct Times Square to make it more convenient for both people and traffic.

28. Eat nachochips and guacamole at Dos Caminos while sipping on a frozen margarita (favorite: mango flavor)
29. Go to a hidden bar in China Town; Apothek. I love the fact that the neighborhood is dark and anonymous, while inside there’s a fancy party.

44. Walk from Canal street through China Town, Little Italy and lower East side. Eat at a random place in China town and experience the chaotic but cool atmosphere there.

46. Eat a mushroom salad and bring a book to The Grey Hound café. Super-hip place, I could stay there for hours.
