We are having an awesome time in New York City so far! We arrived on Sunday night after a whirlwind day of packing & driving. We are staying in a lovely apartment in Brooklyn, right on Atlantic Ave. Here is a shot Amber took of the place shortly after we arrived:
The place is much bigger than last year's, and we even have access to a roof deck with a pretty great view.
Yesterday we had the pleasure of visiting Sweet Revenge (cupcake & beer/wine pairings!) in the West Village and Rudy's in Hell's Kitchen in amongst our wanderings. Marsha (our dear friend & a frequent guest blogger) came down to join us for the afternoon, and we had some great adventures!
We have been putting together a list of some places we'd like to check out while we have a few days before things start up at the Javits. Some we've already been to and are eager to revisit, others we're eager to explore. Of course, most of them have a literary theme:
And some non-literary places we are excited for:
Of course, we won't see everything, but it's always good to have many options!
Do you have any other suggestions for us of things we ought to see or do?
N.B. I have to apologize: we've been compiling this list for a couple of years now, and I know we relied heavily on posts related to Google searches on "literary nyc" and the like. If you are the author of one of those posts, thank you! And please let us know so we can give you credit.
