How to go to New York
How I did it: Your mileage may vary.. but for my trip I landed at JFK Airport and took a taxi to Manhattan. From here I spent every penny on pizza and the local jazz scene. It was unbelievable.
I went here to catch up with my sister who had moved over for a career as a ballet dancer :)
Resources: The locals are more than willing to help. If you're into food, be sure to visit little Italy. If you're into jazz, don't miss West Village. Especially a club called Smalls which gets started after 11pm!
