What to do in New York: Reader Favorites

• 03 November 2009

We enjoyed a fabulous little weekend in New York last month, largely due to all of your wonderful recommendations! Thank you all for taking the time, on a Saturday nonetheless, to share your ideas and tips about what is not-to-be-missed in New York City. We've visited a handful of times already, but given the size of New York, it's so easy to visit 10 or 20 times and do different things each trip. This we've learned!

Anyway, I thought it would be fun to compile a "top 20" list based on your recommendations, including links. I'll start at the top with the most popular place/restaurant/site and then move down from there. Enjoy and thank you again for all of this fantastic information...all of you who contributed seriously saved the rest of us hours of research!

1. Central Park (fountains, sailboats, museum, rollerskating, etc.)
2. Walking across the Brooklyn Bridge
3. Cloisters Museum
4. High Line Park
5. Levain Bakery
6. Grimaldi's (eat here after walking to Brooklyn over the bridge)
7. Cafe Habana (Cuban sandwich + street corn)
8. Crumbs
9. the Met
10. Caracas Arepa Bar
11. Shake Shack
12. Alice's Tea Cup
13. Butter Lane Cupcakes
