The cookies! Oh my goodness. In a tiny Upper West Side location, look for the blue sign and be prepared to melt in deliciousness.

Yep, that Magnolia Bakery as seen in SATC. Light and fluffy cupcakes and Carrie Bradshaw's brownstone just around the corner.

Museum of Modern Art
Visit the 4th and 5th floors, which are my favorite – Seurat, Picasso, Monet.

The Lobster Roll you'll never forget, enjoy one in the petite dining area or at the bar in the West Village.

Many locations await your patronage, but my favorite is Central Park South. Ideal for breakfast and brunch.
The Metropolitan Museum
Nestled into Central Park, tour the endless rooms and the fashion exhibits as well. And cap off your visit with a cocktail on the roof overlooking the park.
The Paris Theater
Foreign films in the city – French, Italian especially – a delightful respite in mid-town.
Remember "You've Got Mail"? On the Upper West Side, this petite grocery store is a mecca gourmet and kosher offerings.
