Oh lawd, that is one cute fanny pack. I'm not sure I have the cajones to wear one but you should def take outfit pics with that on and post them for my sheer enjoyment.

I haven't been to NY since I was 14 so I'm fresh outta local tips, but DEFINITELY have pizza!!!

I can't wait to see your street style post! How fun!

Looks like you've got everything covered. I'm guilty of bringing too much stuff I don't need, so I'm certainly not a good person to give advice.

I love that on your to do list you have "pretend I live there." I always do that when I go somewhere, and I always have to tell Chris, "you look too much like a tourist!"

I hope you feel better before you go, and I can't wait to see pictures when you get back!

you can get your medium format film processed at sam's club. (at least the ones in utah). i don't have a membership there, but you can buy things at the food court without one. i just pay for my film with my churro!

i get my film developed at the local walgreens... i'm sure you can find one (you'll see a ton of Duane Reed's in NY... you might be able to get it developed there!)

i've never been to williamsburg, ny but i go to soho all the time. i do have a list of places i want to check out in the city though, and a few are in williamsburg!

thrift store- beacon's closet (88 N 11th Street) and Buffalo Exchange (332 E 11th Street)

bowling alley: the gutter (200 N 14th Street)

plus there's a ton of great art gallery's and music venue's there to check out!

have an amazing trip!! xoxo

check out my blog! you may have won something! :]

Poison Oak said...

Moto is by far the best place for brunch or any time of the day- I swear I'm not biased because it's down the street from me. It is heaven. It's very small, but most of the time there is a jazz band playing softly in the background.

Another great spot is in Greenpoint- the Manhattan Inn. It's stunning. There are tables around a piano.

Both very relaxing places! Enjoy!

I'm all for the fanny pack.

this is a wonderful wonderful post.

i loved getting to creep on all the stuff you carry around in your purse....errrr...i mean...fanny pack. and i think i want some of that osis dust it stuff.

and i love what a good packer you are! i ALWAYS overpack. it's kind of ridiculous. you should've seen me on our honeymoon.... an entire suitcase dedicated to the lingerie and sexy heels i barely even wore. good thing we didn't fly anywhere!

i SO wish i could go to new york. i've never been there...or really been much of anywhere. i hope you have so much fun and i can't wait to see all the photos and read all about your adventures!

love you B!

Rannie said...

I am SO ready to spend 7 days with you. And you know who's even MORE excited? Franki.

P.S. We are not allowed to drink alcohol OUTSIDE here.. because, apparently, that is against the LAW! and we can't go around getting tickets for that stuff, because i ALREADY DID TONIGHT.


see in tomorrow. xo

madison said...

get on the F, get off at 7th ave, and walk to the best diner in Brooklyn. Donuts!!!

ps-SOOOO jealous you're going! I would love to get away from school for a week!!!

Lindsay Kling said...

have a fabulous time in NY! I'm going in May with my Mom & Sister (girl's trip!) and cannot wait. What is the name of the Amber Oil you get at Whole Foods? I'm going to have to check it out next time I'm there. ;)

crissy said...

I'm pretty jealous. I've been to NY once, and have dreamed of going back since. Hope you have a great time and a safe trip :)
