You may live in a lovely city chock full of parks and wonder why bother visiting This park on your precious vacation to New York.
Yes, this expansive 2.5 mile long famous place has a Zoo, Broadway Baseball leagues, lovely restaurants, a carousel and skating rink, running paths galore and a million nooks and crannies to read a book, meditate or take a nap. All good reasons, but that is not the most important one.
We, who have been living in and observing New York and its inhabitants for 3 decades know that if you want to see real New Yorkers, this is the place to go. Our Oasis.
On a Sunday, especially in Spring and Fall, the park is doused with thousands of .. wait for it.. New Yorkers RELAXING! Away from our lightless apartments or stress filled office cubicles, the inhabitants of this city are actually kind and gentle people, who will caress and guide visitors with generosity of spirit as unknown on a Tuesday in Midtown.
Do not come to NYC and miss Central Park. It is worth the visit.

600 DECA High School Students from around the country were treated to a custom Fashion & Retail Educational program this week in SoHo & NoLita. Included were trends forecasting, sneaker production, seeing cool Street art, meeting an actual street Artist (even cooler)! and doing some fun personal and holiday Shopping!
Week 1 included a visit to The Market NYC to speak with local indie designers about their art form. Shop Gotham has always been a HUGE fan of The Market NYC. Everyone should take a moment to stop by (corner of mulberry & broadway)
#1: The 24-hour Apple Store, Fifth Ave @ 59th Stteet
Not only does this store offer a dizzying array of cool toys to check out, but you can get round-the-clock tech help for your dying iphone or the missing music on your ipod.
#2: Never go without the milk in your coffee
The city that never sleeps is most valuable when you need those “essentials” at odd hours.. like red licorice or milk for your coffee. Never more than 2 blocks away
#3: The cheapest manicures
The supply and demand rule is never more apparent than in the NYC manicure (and pedicure) industry. It seems there is one on every block. Cheap, Fabulous and typically no appointments needed.

3 More Reasons NYC Rocks
1) Almost All Shops are open on Sunday (exception: upper Madison avenue). We recommend taking our Soho & Nolita shopping tour at noon on Sunday. Wake up late. Take your tour. Follow it by a late leisurely lunch at a charming cafe in Soho or Nolita. Shop some more. Drag your bags home. Take a nap. A perfect sunday.
2)Cover bands at BBKings. Almost any musician you have ever loved is represented at BBkings by a “look-alike band”, who are often as good as the real deal. Typically $15. Civilized environment with food & bev.
3)Philharmonic in Central Park. True that about a zillion other people also show up to picnic under the stars. But there is always a patch of grass to snag and hey, its the NY Philarmonic for free! July 17 2009.
