The Ultimate New York To-Do List

New York Summer 2011
So you planned a trip to New York and you’re wondering what you should do during your time in the Big Apple? “I can help you there,” I said in Draco Malfoy’s voice. I’ve only been to New York twice in my life (once with my family and once on my own) but here’s a list of must-do activities I put together based experience.  It’s a city with SO MUCH going on that I suspect the list will keep on growing as I discover new things.
