I'm often asked by English friends to be a sort of impromptu tour guide. What could one possibly do in New York without lashings of money?
Herewith some local suggestions.
1) Walk on the High Line --it really is a super way to see lots of New York sights without getting run over. And it's free!
You walk on an old railway line above the bustle of the street.
After that you will probably need a cup of tea...or coffee
2) so go to Bergamote on the corner of 9th Avenue and 20th street
and eat a wonderfully fattening cake.
you may need
3) a dose of culture:
(here the David Zwirner gallery on 19th Street and 10th Avenue)
4) something to amuse you
5) lunch or dinner at The Tipsy Parson
my latest favorite spot.
Buster would like to follow Ms. Redjacket in but isn't allowed.
