    I’m a big traveller, and I currently have nothing planned. This is making me twitchy. So please convince me that NY is the place to head to, with these books to read!

    We have been once, there are so many things I want to see. I would check out more of the museums, do the red bus tour again. The staten island ferry again, they do a free and a pay one xxx

    I have been wanting to visit NYC to see a show on Broadway, the taping of the Today Show, the 9/11 Museum and Central Park. Hopefully, I will have the chance to visit there, soon. Thank you for this chance!

    I have never travelled to NY, but if I could, I’d want to see it all, as I’m sure the way I imagine it is much different in real life. I’d want to spend enough time there to visit all the sites, do some shopping, hit up the food vendors, and take a stroll through Central Park. However, if I could only chose one place to spend my time, I would go to where the twin towers once stood. I am a high school teacher, and every year it becomes more and more difficult to teach kids about the events of 9/11 because they either weren’t alive yet or they were just babies. To them, our world today is the only world they have ever known. I think visiting would give me new insight on how to best help our youth of today make connections with those of yesterday. For now, though, I am so very thankful for what books offer us all in terms of travel and learning! Without them, some of us would never even get leave our hometown. I’m so glad I found your site…I love it here! 🙂

    My parents took me to NYC for my 18th birthday, errrr, 19 years ago *weeps* so I’d love to go back and see what’s changed since the 90’s! 🙂

    I always wanted to visit New York. Would love to visit all, Times Square, Central Park, Theater District, MoMA, Brooklyn Bridge, Chelsea Hotel… I loved the book Just Kids by Patti Smith.

    I would like a bit of #literarywanderlust to NEW YORK just now… my nephew just moved close to there and when we go to visit this winter I want to spend some time in the Big Apple taking in the sights and sounds that I have only read about or seen on the big screen.

    I’ve been lucky enough to have visited New York in the past, but would love to go again for the shopping alone! I don’t think I’ve read any books set in NYC, so would be good to start with these two … fingers crossed

    I’ve visited NYC a hundred times in books, from Catcher in the Rye to Jeffery Deaver’s Lincoln Rhyme mysteries. Actually I’m quite happy wandering the Big Apple from my reading nook…rather than in reality.

    Oh to shop til I (almost) dropped followed by a horse-drawn carriage ride. Almost as good as reading about New York…but not quite

    New York, New York! Stayed there in 1978, long before “zero tolerance”. There had been a murder in the ‘Y’ on 42nd St the night before we stayed there & you didn’t dare set foot in Central Park, for fear of rape, murder & mugging (not necessarily in that order!)
    The most recent book I’ve read set in New York is Hanya Yanagihara’s ‘ A Little Life’, published in March ’15. This is a real saga of 4 college friends who move together to New York & live out their very complex lives in the same orbit.
    Here is a review, if you are interested!
