After exploring downtown on day 1, let's move up to midtown!
Stop 1 - Bibble & Sip
Start the day with delicious coffee and pastry! My favorite pastry there is the earl grey cream puff. It was so good that I wish I could bring some back to LA.
Stop 2 - Times Square
Tons of stores around times square, including the LINE store and the Nintendo store if you are interested. For those who fancy a Broadway show but cannot afford it, here is some information on the ticket lottery schedule. On specific times and days, you can enter a lottery for a cheap ticket.
Stop 3 - The Rockefeller Center and the Saint Patrick's Cathedral
Stop 4 - The New York Public Library and the Grand Central
I have always had a thing about train stations, especially one as beautiful as the Grand Central Terminal in New York. I always feel like I can just hop on a train and run away.
Stop 5 - MOMA
This is definitely a must-go, although I find it a little hard to understand some of the arts.
Stop 6 - Totto Ramen
Everybody in New York knows about this place. There are tons of great ramen places in New York, but this one (and maybe Ippudo) is one of the most discussed ramen place.
Stop 7 - The Empire State Building
The night view of the New York city is something no one should miss if they are in New York. This is one of the most spectacular city skylines in the US. Yes, the line is pretty long. And yes, it is kinda pricy. But, it is totally worth it once you are up there.
