local’s guide: nyc

what would gywneth do



Though I sometimes crave leaving my beloved city behind and b-lining for the beach like mentioned here, I do love New York.  Very early on, I had a desire to move into an apartment in the West Village (a brownstone, obv!) and settle down in the urban jungle.  New York City just lives in my bones, and it always has (and I think always will).  There is no denying it.  With that being said, when I reached out to Raluca, founder of lifestyle blog What Would Gwyneth Do (who is actually living out my fantasy on the beach in Southern California), I jumped at her suggestion to offer my take on a “local’s guide to Manhattan”.  Uncovering my favorite places “to shop, wine and dine, where to find the best massage, facials, places to take your kids” and so much more, I gave her readers the inside scoop.
