The Green Light For New York Sit

wooohoo lucky you Elsiedownie. I’s love to get a sit in especially Seattle sometime. Lived there shortly back in 2001 and had the greatest time. Also love to go to Hawai’i sometime one of those things you’ve always dreamed about.
But oh myyyy, The big Apple there is soooo much to do. Been there twice and absolutely walked my legs off. And you have a poodle to give you just the excuse to do just that.

whatever you do your gonna have sore eyes and feet from trying to take in everything you’ve always seen in films, shows etc etc.

Hey, well done ElsieDowns. For a sneak peek at a myriad of pleasures in NYC, I wrote an account of our 3 week stay in Breezy Point with 2 kitties, with regular forays into NYC. You are welcome to read, at under Encounters US or Encounters Home & Pet Sitting. Meanwhile, enjoy your success, THS is a fabulous way to travel the world. Kath

Congrats on your NYC sit! As someone who lived there for many years, I well understand your saying that you didn’t see enough of the Met Museum – it is overwhelming. Since you’re on Central Park West, you may also want to explore the American Museum of Natural History which has wonderful dioramas of animals, including dinosaur skeletons. It also has the Rose Planetarium with its fascinating overhead shows. Are you a bagel lover? Visit Barney Greengrass or Zabar’s in your hood. After visiting the 911 museum, you might want to explore the South Street Seaport area near the Brooklyn Bridge. And/or walk over the Brooklyn Bridge (or take a short subway ride) to get the great view of the skyline from the Brooklyn Heights Promenade – and Brooklyn Heights is a great neighborhood to explore. Hope you have a great trip!


Thank you for all the suggestions. I’m away to do some research.

Congrats @ElsieDownie ! We love NYC and can’t imagine living anywhere else permanently, but I love to travel and hopefully we will get into it more. I had a min pin for a few years before my parents adopted her since they live in a much larger abode… Anywho…

If you are into trying new food check out the TooGoodToGo food app (if you haven’t heard of it). It’s a way to get deals on perfectly good food (meals, beverages, pastries and groceries) that the restaurant may have otherwise tossed. We’ve had great success trying new establishments at a great discount. There are so many great places to check out around the park on the app.

Have a great time here!

Of course remember your proof of vaxx if you plan to do anything indoors as regs change a lot here

Congratulations, @ElsieDownie. When is this sit happening? I may have missed that.

I lived in Manhattan for a few years in my 20s, and try to get back at least once every year or so. Definitely check out Time Out for goings on. If you’re interested in being part of a live audience for a TV show (FREE), there are opportunities (even now–in fact, better odds). I got in to see Stephen Colbert and the Late Show in October, and had been trying for years. It was so fun, and felt great to be in a room with the 100% vaxxed and masked crowd, and just about 10 feet from the wonderful “Stay Human” band led by the wonderful Jon Batiste.

The TKTS booths at Times Square and South Street Seaport (not sure if that’s reopened) are great for getting last-minute, great-value tickets to shows and plays. I got to see David Byrne’s American Utopia–6th row seat for about $70.

Check out the Cloisters.
