A Girlfriends' New York Getaway Diary...


Broadway shows...

broadway showsNew York City is famous worldwide for it's Broadway shows. The problem is that many of the first-run productions can set you back over $100 a performance. That doesn't mean you have to miss out entirely.

Check out TKTS Discount Booths (in 3 NYC locations). They offer tickets to Broadway and Off-Broadway musicals and plays at up to 50% off. My gal pals and I scored $20 tickets for an Off-Broadway play that was a lot of fun.

Read their information website carefully for times, availability and locations. P.S. The line for tickets to buy musicals is usually longer than the one for plays. Make sure you are standing in the right one.


Linda the bra lady...

linda the bra ladyNo visit to NYC is complete without a visit to Linda's the Bra Lady. Linda stocks 200 bra sizes so if you are a Journey Woman who wants a bra that fits you perfectly this is the place to go. We suggest you call in advance for an appointment so you don't waste your precious New York time waiting for service (1.888.262.4887).

Linda has two locations, one at 828 Lexington Avenue between 63rd & 64th streets and the newest at 552 3rd Avenue between 36th & 37th streets. For further information check her site and join Linda's Facebook page for lots of discount coupons and super specials.


Shoes, shoes, shoes...

shoesWe look forward to shopping in New York for the variety in footwear that is difficult to locate at home. Our first stop was Modells for funky black Nike runners that remain kind to your feet for a full day of sightseeing. Service was attentive, choice was excellent, prices were right and, the shop was just a few blocks from our hotel.

Next we paid a visit to Harry's Shoe Shop, an Upper West Side tradition (circa 1931) that was located close enough from Hotel on the Ave to walk to (2299 Broadway and 83rd Street). We were blown away by their incredible selection of sizes and the number of brands they stock. It's hard not to love this place. Website:


Walking tour of Grand Central Terminal...

grand central stationOn our way to visit The Bra Lady we popped into the legendary Grand Central Terminal (42nd Street and Park Avenue). This train station was built almost 100 years ago and it brings about 500,000 commuters in and out of Manhattan every working day. It's also the largest train station in the world by number of platforms. However, for sightseers, most important of all is the building's inner architecture with soaring barrel vaulted ceiling and the fabulous chandeliers in the Main Concourse. Click here to download directions for your personal walking tour of this Beaux Art Beauty. It's free, it's fun and it's a New York landmark.
