Moxy Times Square

We stayed here when we visited NYC in January. It was fantastic, the perfect spot for millennials. So on-trend and very affordable.

Moxy Chelsea

We haven't stayed here but I'm a little bit obsessed with the Moxy brand and super obsessed with this area of NYC.

1 Hotel Central Park

This hotel looks amazing. The rooms looks super chic and have a view of central park. Definitely on my list of places to stay.

The most Instagram-able spots in The Big Apple.

The Empire State Building: We were strolling back to our hotel when I saw a bench on the sidewalk so I hopped up and got Keith to take pictures for me! And I am SOOO glad I did! This is one of my favorite photos ever

Brooklyn Bridge: A Classic. The day we went to Brooklyn Bridge it was CRAZY busy, like almost scary, so getting this photo was tricky but we persevered and got the shot!! (and almost froze to death)

The Friends Apartment: This was the coolest to see! I am so obsessed with Friends and getting to see this building in real life (and while wearing my friends T-shirt) just made me so happy!! This is in Greenwich Village which is such a cute place to stroll around and soak up the atmosphere.

The Crosswalk: This was a ballsy little impromptu moment when we were crossing the street in Greenwich Village and I loved the background so I made Keith snap some photos while we crossed!! So glad I did because just look at that sky *drools*

The most overwhelming place in the world? Maybe. We didn't get many photos here because honestly, it was too busy and too stressful and we weren't getting up early for photos, we were on vacation.

Times Square

A staple in the tourist canon of things to see in NYC. 

_I'll be there for yooooooou_ 🚕🗽✨_._._

Greenwich Village

The Friends Apartment, Cornelia Street, hip cafes. Potentially the coolest place in NYC.

One of my fave places to go in NYC. Brooklyn Bridge, DUMBO  and exploring Brooklyn.

Grand Cental Station

Overwhelmingly gorgeous, overwhelmingly busy. Another must-see on my list.

The Met Museum

One of the biggest museums I've ever seen. And very cool for fans of Gossip Girl.

Columbus Circle

An iconic image of my childhood is seeing Gisele from Enchanted look up at this statue and exclaim her beauty.

Central Park

There's no way you can visit NYC and not see at least some of Central Park.

The Statue Of Liberty

And Staten Island. An important visit for everyone to see a little bit of immigration history and of course Lady Liberty.
