The Classics - 100% complete - This was the first group to be completed as a whole. This is the basic NYC stuff. The Empire State Building is the only thing we missed, but we included the Top of the Rock.
The Food/Drink - 77% complete - We have a little more work to do to finish this off, but no one complains about eating. Because we have amazing friends, we have gift cards to Clinton Street Baking Company & the Farm on Adderly, so those will be checked off soon. Steve's Key Lime Pies is where I plan to have my birthday dessert this year.
Eat a slice of heaven at Steve's Key Lime Pies.
Enjoy lunch or dinner at the Farm on Adderly in Brooklyn - Thanks Erin & Nick!!!
Brunch at the Clinton Street Baking Company.
Outdoor Activites - 40% complete - This is what springtime in the city is for. We are signed up for the MS Climb to the Top of the Rock (help me hit my fundraising goal here or join our team) on March 1st. We have plans to see a Mets game in the spring as well. We have a lot of walking to do to complete our city walks, but we are excited to explore Harlem and Brooklyn a little more. One of our favorite surprises from this list was the George Washington Bridge. We made the trek across the bridge on foot a few weekends ago and got to the lighthouse underneath. Such a cool area if you are looking for a new place to explore.
Rent bikes for Riverside Park.
Sign up for a run or charity event in NYC.
See a game at Citi Field.
Visit Governors Island.
Complete all 50 City Walks: New York that we received from Katie. (29/50 are completed)
Take a ride on the Beast (a gift from Pam & Whitney).
Museums & History - 66% complete - If I made this list now, I would have so many other museums on the list, but we are almost complete with these and then we will move on to explore others and revisit the Met since it's huge.
See the New York Panorama at the Queens Museum of Art.
Have a drink at Fraunces Tavern where George Washington once spent the night.
Movies, Theater & Entertainment - 88% complete - This has been one of my favorite categories (probably because of Jimmy Fallon) and we just bought tickets to check the last thing off the list. I am beyond excited to see Stevie Wonder in April at the Barclays Center. We have been out of town every time he's been near NYC, so when he announced more shows a few weeks ago, we knew that we would have to make this one work. Plus, we are adding a new Broadway show to our list tonight!
How many Broadway shows can we see?
Newsies, Cinderella, Rocky, Rock of Ages, Chicago, Aladdin, Kinky Boots, Spiderman
Enjoy a game or concert at the Barclays center.
Surrounding Areas - 73% complete - I'm not sure if we will make it to Provincetown before my birthday, but we will at least have it on the calendar for this summer. The rest of these little day trips or weekend trips have been incredible. Everything here is so damn close. We have a few more places to visit and then I'll have my list of the best day trips from the city.
Drive to Hyde Park and explore.
Hike one of the peaks in the Hudson Valley - possibly Bear Mountain.
Total 40/55 - 73% completed
So that's my update. I'm excited for the next few months and checking things off my list. How many things have you done off this list?
