This trip was my third time in NYC and I can’t believe I’ve never posted about it!! My friend Keeley lives there so she did a great job planing our weekend and finding the good local spots.
First, I flew into JFK (one way from PHX cost $170) and split a taxi which was cheaper than Uber. It cost around $70 total with tip in the the city to my friends apartment in West Village.
I’ve been dying to try Barry’s bootcamp. Since we don’t have on Barry’s locations in Arizona… I had to try during my time in NYC. The one con is it’s $30+ a class, but it’s worth it. You can even pre-order shakes so they are ready for you once you are done with the class. The class reminded me of Orange Theory where you do circuits of treadmill, weights and abs. It was hard, but worth it. I would definitely go back.
Eats & Drinks
Lil Frankies was cash only, but really good Italian food. I had the spinach ravioli and this Proecca lemon vodka drink. We made a reservation around 9pm for dinner then walked to Public Hotel. Luckily, we knew someone who could get us on the list, but we were able to go to the underground club and get drinks on another level which had seating and awesome views of the city!
On Sunday, we watched the Cavs game at this dive bar called Wogies which was a great spot with lots of TVs and typical bar food.
Get your steps in and head to Central Park. New York in the spring is absolutely stunning while all the flowers are blooming!
I flew out of EWR and used points for a one way back to PHX for 12,500. I split a Lyft using the sharing and it only cost $35. I’d rather pay a little more than try to figure out the train 🙂
Last, there is so much to do in New York and everything stays open later. It’s a great place for a weekend trip during the summer time.
