One place I have always desperately wanted to visit is New York City. Despite being an American citizen myself, I have never been there. A friend of mine is visiting soon, and my bubbling seething jealousy inspired me to write this post.

Top of my NYC-To-Do-List is Central Park. It's 843 acres in size and is home to sculptures of (amongst others): Lewis Carrol's Alice in Wonderland (with friends), Hans Christien Andersen (below), a famous sled-dog called Balto, and three bronze bears.

There are approximately 12778 yellow cabs in New York. I'm sure I have seen most of them have featured on Sex and the City.

Pretty high up the list is the MOMA (Museum of Modern Art). At the moment they are showing 'Pipe, Glass, Bottle of Rum: The Art of Appropriation', 'Wunderkammer: A Century of Curiosities',' Here Is Every. Four Decades of Contemporary Art' and much more.

There's about a billion other places I'd love to go, including spending a day in Brooklyn with Design*Sponge's Brooklyn Design Guide. When I do go, it will have to be for at least a week. If anyone is going soon, or has been recently I hope you enjoy(ed) it!
