New York is one of those cities that is forever changing. Just as you think you have your favorite restaurant down, some new and better opens around the corner. New York is as diverse as it is unique. You can be whomever and whatever you want to be. I am trying not to plan way too much for my trip to NYC this week; however, I do have a list of things, showroom, restaurants, and people I have to see. So today, I am simply just going to share my summer bucket list of must do activities in NYC.

Three showrooms are on my list to visit (so far). Danish Reform have made the jump over the bond and recently opened a showroom together with a bunch of other Danish brands, which I am dying to see. Secondly I met the guys of TRNK a year ago in Copenhagen, and now it is my turn to tour their city and showroom. Last but not least I cannot wait to explore the newly renovated showroom of Swedish floor specialist Bolon.
Cocktails With A View
Good cocktails are a must and with a view, even better. So ordering a Old Fashioned at the new 20-seat Watertower Bar atop the Williamsburg Hotel, overlooking the glittering Manhattan skyline is on the list too.
Rooftop Cinema Club
I love a good movie and as we will be staying with friends in Brooklyn, I have already booked tickets for to climb to the top of a Brooklyn warehouse for a movie under the stars.
Be sure to follow my IG account, as I have a bunch of Insta-famous sites on my list like: the Prosecco Popsicle Cocktails at the Loopy Doopy Rooftop Bar and those tiles floor and tables accompanied with plenty of Macarons at Woops
Explore The Arts
MoMa, Guggenheim and the Mets… any others I shouldn’t miss?
Walk The Highline
Even though I have done this walk many times before, it never gets boring.
The Apartment By The Line
Speaking of the Line, must visit shop, The Apartment! Believe it or not, but I have actually never been, and it has been on my bucket list for years.
Every time I have visited New York I have wanted to visit these iconic building, but never done it. So now I am making it a priority to see at least the Chrysler Building, New York Public Library and Grand Central Station.
I love food. It is a miracle I am not bigger than I am actually. I have a few places stared on my map already, including Diner, Faro & Five Leaves – all in Brooklyn.
Fell free to leave me your best NYC must-do activity this summer, thank you.
