Stating the obvious, it's been a few weeks since I have posted. I returned from traveling, changed my job and am still coming down from an exciting, interesting, beautiful and somewhat volatile 6 months. I am not traveling again for a few weeks, so I am taking pleasure in getting reacquainted with New York.
I've finally gotten around to creating a Google map of the city to share with friends (and everyone else), making it easy to search for places I would recommend. While the map definitely skews to locations south of 14th street, I think there are key places one should know of in any neighborhood or city when traveling - where to get a good pedicure, great coffee and a stylish cocktail.
You can get to the map from here, and I will add to it as I continue to discover more places.
