My personal Complete Guide of New York. NY it´s a very exciting city. It´s always worth a visit.I always wanted to write a guide about New York. I like being here, the neon lights, the tall crystal buildings, the hamburger and milkshake, the cinemas, the views, the people, their craziness, their music, and most of all I looove that positive energy and their lack of complex but most of all seeing life through the eyes of a child in a romantic way as some americans do. This is THE guide of New York. Turn up the corner and daydream that one day someone will notice and hire me as an actress for a Hollywood film jajajaja its my dream right and my blog …., I am going to update this guide of New York with more info.

NYC landmark for food and drinks. Most of all a lot ambiance , the problem is a lot of noise an always crowdy but fun. The food is really nice and service also.Recommended if you are going with friends not for dates, you don´t hear anything…
“Mr Purple”: Go to the Hotel Indigo, at the 5 th floor in 180 Orchard St. A posh spot with views of NY flows and has two terraces (it has a a pool yehaaaaa). A cool place to get a swim, hang out with friends for a late night cocktail and theres also yoga classes to join in the evenings, it has it all.

“1Oak” :453 West 17 th St Its a One Of A Kind , the name comes from here. The club where some american celebrities like famous actors, models and singers like to go. If you are lucky enough to enter, GREAT. Here all the beautiful people hang out.
There are four places in NY that from my point of view are the best spots to watch the most amaaaazing and awesome views of Ny city. (This is is very valued info so please DO VALUE.)
- “The River Cafe” in Brooklyng bridge. Here you can have your best cocktail sitting in the bar, viewing the great view.
- “The Brooklyng bridge big wheel” I love this big wheel is kind of old and elegant and really big. Out of a fairy tale. I am fan of old big wheels, and of all the big wheels I ve seen this one is the most beautiful of all also it has great views of NY from here. I think is perfect for a romantic date don´t you think or for a film scene. Daydreaming of two glasses and a bottle of champagne, the big wheel and the view of NY as background, in this George Clooney would say in this dream (Nespresso advertisement): What Else?………
- “The Boom Boom room” at the top of the Standard hotel,”.Where? Dónde? 848 Wahington st. West Village212-645-4646. Best place for awesome views. Its like been in the 30´s. the waitresses (some of them look like models) are dressed in a fashion way,The place is classy, a lot of taste. Here its where some scenes were recorded like Shame when Sissy (Carey Mulligan) sings.
4. Last but not least: The bar at the last floor at 80 Wythe Ave.” Wythe hotel” in Williamsburg”. Nice staff awesome views.
BROOKLYN: I love Brooklyn Neighbourhood (cozy, homy, and at the same it feels like being part of a friendly close community) , take some nice food at Diviera Drive, walk from Brooklyn to Williamsburg the hipster and cool neighbourhood. IMPORTANT GET LOST, WALK AND DISCOVER NEW PLACES….finish your walk by staring the amazing sunset from the brooklyn bridge as I did. Here below a photo I took from the Brooklyn bridge and see the amazing skyline of Manhattan, its always amazing, and worth looking.o
One of my favourite plans in NY is to walk its streets, its the best way to discover it. You also exercise, get fit and best of all is free. Walking is free. Take a walk at CentralPark or rent a bicycle and exercise your body here in the NY green oasis to get some fresh air. Also you can see some actors acting in a classic theatre outside Central park. You have to be pending of and reserve on internet. Famous Hollywood actors used to act here like Al Pacino, etc
MEATPACKING DISTRICT: I highly recommend to take a nice lovely walk at the High line near the Hudson, its a walk along all the meatpacking district. it used to be an old railway and is has been redesigned ( A designer like me loves it) with a lot of green area, theres some parts where you can see some of the tracks. its really long but the good thing is that you can stop and take photos like my case or take a coffee or take some snack in their bars with terraces. Its relaxing you can see the design buildings, gardens and the water, nice views.
