Friday Five – Things I like about my favorite city


Every Friday, three DC area bloggers Mary at Mar On the Run, Cynthia at You Signed Up For What?! and Courtney from Eat Pray Run, DC to host the Friday Five linkup.  Anyone can join with their own Friday Five post (yes, it must be a Friday Five!!)  They encourage you to visit other blogs on the linkup, comment, share and engage!

This week, the theme is 5 things I like about my favorite city.

Yes, NYC is my favorite city and I am lucky to live a train or bus ride away.

Here are 5 things I love about NYC:

1.  Restaurants 


in Chelsea


French Restaurant in the Village

I love to eat out. I don’t think I’ve ever had a bad meal in NYC.

in Central Park

2. Theater

There’s nothing like Broadway.  I usually go once a year. I have seen some great shows. Among my favorites are Les Miz, Kinky Boots, Jersey Boys, Wicked, Once, Billy Elliot, Lion King…

3. Museums

I love French art especially the Impressionists. Outside of Paris, there’s no better place to see these paintings than the Metropolitan Museum (above) or the Modern Art Museum (below).

4. Parks and Gardens

Bryant Park

I love hanging out in Bryant Park especially at lunch time. I could spend the whole day in Central (and have.)

NY Botanical Gardens in the Bronx


Washington Square in the Village

5. the Lights

Paris may be the “City of Lights,” but the lights of NYC are breath-taking especially around the holidays.



Happy Running! What is your favorite city and why?
