New York trip prep day 2

I  told myself that I would attempt to cool it on the scheduling of this trip. I have been known to over plan a vacation and not allow any free moments for relaxation or spontaneity.

But I just couldn't help myself.

We're only in the city for a few days and there are so many things to see and do that I would hate to get there and spend time schlepping around and looking at each other and asking what we should see next. Or even worse, end up eating at some crappy chain restaurant because we didn't take the time to find somewhere amazing to eat. That would be a real tragedy in my book.

So here it is, our plan for the trip. I know it seems a bit detailed, but that's what happens when my type A personality gets a hold of a spreadsheet. Our tickets are purchased and our reservations are made. The good thing about me is that the moment a trip begins my red personality morphs to yellow and I have no problem dropping the schedule entirely.

Is there anything totally awesome that we've missed in our exhaustive research? Something we MUST add to our trip?

You MUST MUST MUST get a cookie from Levain Bakery!! For reals...I still crave them on a daily basis. Stop by there after Central's close to there. We walked there. SO FREAKING GOOD!!

Hit up Magnolia Bakery (at least once)

If you go to shake shack get there before 11 or you'll be waiting FOREVER!!

Mary poppins was sooooo magical and I loved every minute of it.

I totally recommend getting the 7 day subway's way cheaper and you don't have to stop to buy a pass all the time.

I have so many other things I want you to do and see.

I will say that grimaldis pizza was over rate in my opinion and juniros cheesecake wasn't all that great either. I would rather have eaten some more from Magnolia or levain bakery...and the locals agree.

Let me know if you have more questions...cause man I can give you a ton more to see!
