The “Scarlet Starlet’s News” is a tell-all, bringing you to the heart of my city, the Big Apple; an ex-New Yorker sharing some of my city savvy, dogma to live by when visiting NYC, and my personal list of “must sees” for all my sassy sistas and brothers when you venture into the Big Apple. For the sass with class, the urban romantic, the shabby chic or not so chic, the fashionably or unfashionably poor, the fashionista, or if you’re simply a first-time visitor, there will be plenty to choose from and something for everyone.
With over 20,000 restaurants, endless number of bars and clubs, boutiques, concert halls, and Broadway theaters, etc., you couldn’t cover in a lifetime, the infinite amount of places New York has to offer, even if you tried. So if you’re planning a short visit and you have something in mind, ask away. Leave your comments below and let me know what you’re interested in— ie: casual cafes, cool bars & restaurants, breakfast eats, night clubs, ethnic food, sushi, trendy areas, culture..and the list goes on. Until then, I’ll be calling ’em as I see ’em..
So with each visit to NY, I will pray for an uneventful and smooth commute through the Lincoln Tunnel into the city. I will pray that I didn’t pick a busy time of day to arrive (which is almost all the time), and I will pray that the day I decided to drive in, won’t be the same day that a foreign dignitary, head-of-state, or the President will be making an appearance at the UN—because any one of those is likely to drive me to mental mayhem.
In the meantime, I will thicken up the coating of teflon, get my poker face on, and take the wardrobe up a notch so that I may properly blend with my people. It should come as no surprise, then, that I will be listing places that are not only worth checking out, but places that only a jaded New Yorker would be seen…unless of course you prefer to mingle with the tourists..
Check back soon! I will be posting very soon about my visit this past summer—best visit yet!
