Things I Want To Do In New York City | IndiaTakesNYC

I’m not sure if I’m still considered a tourist of the New York City, but nevertheless, there are tons of things I want to do in the city I haven’t done yet that are definitely considered ‘touristy’.

I’ve decided to make a list, and let me know if there are some super cool things I haven’t thought of yet! I’ll probably be adding to this list periodically, especially if you guys have great ideas or if I think of something I forgot to add the first time!

Go to a live taping of The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon

Actually go to a live taping of Saturday Night Live (tried this, it was a fail, but trying again!) 

Go to a concert featuring one of my favorite artists

Visit all five burroughs

See the Radio City Rockettes

Visit The Strand Bookstore (I’ve visited the smaller one at the Bryant Park Holiday Market, but I still want to visit the actual building!)

Watch a Parade

See Misty Copeland Perform at the American Ballet Theatre

Visit the Christmas Tree at Rockefeller Center (I’ve done this before, but really want to do it again!)

Visit Ground Zero

Visit the Statue of Liberty

Visit Coney Island’s Amusement Park

Visit the Empire State Building

  • Thank you so much to @disney for gifting me this cute package to celebrate #marypoppinsreturns! It’s out now on digital, 4K Ultra HD and Blu-Ray. These books are so adorable! Have you read them or watched the movie yet? ☂️
  • I’ve partnered up with @letstalkYA and @freeform books to share a REALLY BIG book haul on my channel that includes this beauty, #TheEverlastingRose. 🌹 The link is in my bio! I can't wait to curl up with this book! Y'all know I am a huge fan of The Belles. Have you started this series yet?
  • These are the books I read in January (I’ll be sharing the books I read in February on my channel soon!) I didn’t plan on only reading books with blue covers. 💙 I really enjoyed all three of these books and two of them became 5 star reads for me. Have you read any of them?
  • This week was such an exciting one for THE FORGOTTEN GIRL! R.L. STINE, the author of the GOOSEBUMPS books, blurbed my novel!! He says "This ghost story gave me chill after chill. It will haunt you." 😱👻 WHAT! I received more exciting news that I can’t share yet, but can’t wait to. ✨ I’m just so thankful. 🙌🏽🙏🏽
  • “One can't stay sad very long in such an interesting world, can one?” 💗 I finished Anne of Green Gables in January and it became an instant favorite. It put me in a reading slump bc I wanted to read something exactly like it when I was done! Anne is such a lovable character and I feel like we have the same view on life. This is a classic, character driven story with beautiful descriptions that makes you feel like you’re going through Anne’s life with her. Have you read it? What other books give you the same feelings as this one? #AnneOfGreenGables
  • I turned in second pass pages for #TheForgottenGirl this week, so here’s a tiny sneak peek. 😍 Look at the chapter headings! ✨
  • Very cheesy selfie to tell you that I have a new video on my channel featuring the books I read in January and what I’m reading this month! Also this @olay sweatshirt is one of my favorite work-from-home shirts, ever. 📚
  • @buzzfeedbooks included me in their round-up of books by Black authors not to miss this year, along with so many other authors I admire! ☺️🙌🏽! The Forgotten Girl is for the young and young at heart. It isn’t available for preorder everywhere yet, but I’ve seen it on Amazon, Books-a-million, and IndieBound so far! 💙
