    Fun, fun! I miss NYC so much. Haven’t been since my grad school days in Boston when I’d take the bus over to the city to visit my bff. I definitely know where to come when I go back to visit- great recs and great idea for a website. I didn’t see Seattle listed (which is my closest big city) but I will have to check back!

      Definitely check back on the Well Well Well site. They are just getting it up and running and no doubt will add more cities in the future. And come visit NYC!

    I’ve only been to NYC twice and it was years ago. I need to make a visit a priority in 2014. With all those attractions you listed + meeting you – it’s a must!

    What an awesome travel guide, Christine! Thanks for sharing your fav spots with us. I love to run when I travel. I’ll get up early so I can get it in before the work day begins. Sometimes this is the only way I’ll get to see the place I’m visiting. It’s the perfect way to start the day & limit the damage from big biz dinners!

      I think running while traveling is one of the best ways to see the city.

    My trips to NYC are always so quick. I usually sneak in an o’dark-thirty run and last time I finally got to run in Central Park. That WellWellWell website looks great – I am always up for healthy ideas when I travel!

    I veer towards cookies too. Also last night my husband made the cornflake marshmallow chocolate chip cookies from Momofuku milk bar that I see up on the menu above.
    I don’t know NYC a lot and I do feel I’d need to work on the breathe aspect of it, if I ever spent a lot of time there. I usually feel anxious there and not breathing very well!
    I do wholeheartedly agree with many of your food/exercise options. I never feel I’m lacking in exercise and good food when I visit every year or so.

      OMG the momfuku cookies are insane. I can only eat a little bit at a time otherwise it’s too intense. I think that people forget that there are actually lots of beautiful quiet pockets in the city. Come visit! :-)

      I’m really glad that the Citi bike program is doing well too. There was a lot of opposition to it but I think that it’s such an asset.

    This post makes me wish I lived in a city! I really want to plan a trip there and hang out (and workout!) with all my bloggy friends which includes YOU. I love the concept of having all of this at your fingertips b/c truly, a friend recommendation is always best when visiting someplace new!
    The sugar splurges look amazing! Compost cookie? YES! And of course, it’s a dream of mine to someday run in Central Park. Maybe in 2014 it will come true!

    What a fun post, Christine. I’ve never been to NYC, but I absolutely want to, and soon. As strange as it may seem, one of the things I most want to do is ride the subway. I always like to take public transportation in a new city. And for some reason, it’s always one thing I remember most. The El in Chicago, cable cars in San Francisco …

    How long did it take you to feel like NYC was home? I think it would be so overwhelming. At the same time, I’d LOVE to live there.

      I hope that you do get a chance to visit Shana. There is so much that the city has to offer and is such a fun place to visit. I do love the public transportation system – my kids love it too and are obsessed with the subway system. I’ve lived here for about 20 years (YIKES!) – I moved here for college. I’d say that a year out of college is when I felt like this was home – or at least I felt comfortable here and settled in. And then since having kids (about 7 years ago) is when I’ve really seen this as home.

    What great tips! You make me want to come to New York (and to a yoga class with you :-) ).

    I love that New York has a bike share program. I didn’t know that and I think they are such a great program.

    I cannot believe I STILL have not been to NYC. I’ve traveled to just bout every major city int he US except NYC. Maybe I’ll make that a 2014 goal – this makes me want to go even more!

    Mind Body Soul Yoga in Washington Heights and Bread and Yoga in Inwood are my yoga homes. They are both amazing, welcoming yoga studios. If someone’s coming as far north as Ft. Tryon and The Cloisters, they’re definitely worth checking out.
