Top Ten Things to Do in New York
1. Visit Bleecker Street
Bleecker Street is my favourite street in New York. There is nothing you can’t get here – dog clothes? Yep. Magnolia bakery filling-inducing cupcakes? You got it. Marc Jacobs branded joy? Yes. Second-hand bookshops? Go on then. Coffee shops? Lots. Snooty record shop workers? of course. Love it.
2. Drink too much hot chocolate at Max Brenner
Honestly, the stuff is like sludge. But how sludge would be in heaven.
3. Destroy your credit card at Bloomingdales
Lots of top brands under one iconic roof. Fab.
4. Cocktails at Little Branch
If you don’t see anything you fancy on the menu of this cool former-speakeasy, just tell the bartenders what you fancy and they’ll whip something up. Something delicious and strong enough to floor an elephant so maybe go easy.
5. See a band at the Bowery Ballroom
I love the Bowery. It’s small and dank enough for gigs to still feel intimate but old New York fancy enough to feel like you’re doing something special. Even if you’re not.
6. Have breakfast at Tiffany’s
It’s practically the law. Go and buy coffee and a danish and stand staring longingly into the windows. Plus it’s cheap which will ease the Bloomingdales induced pain on your credit card.
7. Go shopping in SoHo
Again, not good for the credit card but SoHo is full and brilliant little shops, from top designers to bargain basement retailers. Also, lots of opportunities for coffee stops and star spotting – both cheap and extremely good fun.
8. Take a trip on the Staten Island Ferry
Relive Working Girl and take a trip on the Staten Island Ferry for some brilliant views of Manhattan. And the best part is it’s FREE!
9. Spend an afternoon in MoMA
I love MoMA. There’s so much to see and it’s just such a serene place to be right in the centre of Midtown. Leave lots of time, if it’s busy you don’t want to feel rushed.
10. Hang out at the top of The Empire State Building
It might be a cheesy tourist thing but I still love the views from the top of the Empire State Building.

This is the first book in the I Heart series and it's a good read which I enjoyed. It's light-hearted, sad, funny and is mostly set in one of the best cities in the world. Having been to New York I do like reading about places I've visited as I have much more of a clearer image of the setting - this book just made me want to go back even more!
Our heroine Angela is a somewhat clichéd character who thinks of herself as a bit of a lush but I think she's actually stronger than that and has got her head screwed on exactly where and how it should be. I totally see where her actions were coming from on her arrival in America and would think that a lot of women who'd been through what she had would rebel.
It's not without faults, some of the storylines are a little far-fetched but overall it's an entertaining read. I'm not sure if I'd continue with the series...maybe if they were on Kindle offer I might be tempted.
I have now read this novel twice, once in 2009 when I was having a pretty rubbish time and once right now when I'm having a pretty excellent time and both times this novel did not fail to make me feel all the feels. This novel is about when Angela takes the massive risk of moving to another continent (as I have just done) and sets off to find herself in new York city. Of couse she doesn't know she is finding herself and that is what is so fab about this book. I love Angela as a character because she is so real and like so many of the people reading this book. You can imaginge finidng that your joint bank account is still being paid into by your cheating ex and then using that money to buy amazing clothes and accesories can't you, well Angela is amazing because all those things we are thinking about doing, Angela does-she is Kick ass!
As much as I love Angela though, I love Jenny Lopez more, Jenny Lopez is amazing and we all wish that she was our best friend. I hope the next time I check into a New York hotel I find Jenny Lopez on the other side of that desk. She ahs all the right answers and she tells it like it is, she is not going to let you onto the streets of new york in a fashion mistake and she will lend you the clothes off her own back if she needs to, she really is the star of the show for me!
New York is the other favourite character in this book, the descriptions of this city are out of this world. The heat, the business, the scenery, the people, all absolutely perfect! And even the Bubba Gumps sign in Times Square gets a mention. I cannot wait to get back into New York and go and see all of the places mentioned in this book and i defy any reader reading this novel to not have the same feelings! Lindsey Kelk does a fab job of describing something so well you can picture it and you also want to go there, I love her for that!
So yes, this is one of my favourite novels and so this is a terrible gushy review but I'm clear on my opinion of this book, it is a fun read with great characters. The setting, the storyline and the characters are all well-written., It will make you wish that Jenny Lopez is your best friend and it will make you wish that New York is your home town too. If you've not read any of the I Heart series yet, this is the one you MUST MUST read, do it now!
