Have a wonderful weekend.

Thank you for such a great week talking about New York! I hope you enjoyed my guide; and thanks for leaving such great recommentions and funny comments. Have a wonderful weekend, and here are some New-York-City-themed links from around the web. Next week, we'll be back to regular scheduled programming! :)

Sounds of New York.

Skyline shower curtain.

If you live in New York, you'll end up crying in public.

Funny snow globe.

A candle that smells like the Times.

An I-Heart-New-York tee that's actually cool.

Taxi mittens.

New York City prints.

Speaking of where to live, here's a fascinating cost-of-living calculator.

And this Onion article made me laugh out loud.

A lego Empire State Building.

My friends are hosting a great event this weekend for moms and daughters.

A few past Cup of Jo posts about NYC:
* A subway poster.
* New Yorkers are nice.
* New York City Hall wedding.
* A wedding where the bride wore overalls!
* A genius hammock.
* What a hilarious book.
* Bill Murray being weird.

Also, we found a mouse in the apartment today, eeks. The perfect end to a week about New York City, haha! Have a good one. xoxo

I've enjoyed the week's posts Jo..Have a good weekend in New York! :-) And you might need to buy more cheese. LOL

Regina said...

Joanna, THANK YOU for this amazing guide. It will definitely be useful in November, when I'm visiting NYC for the first time. Can't wait to go to the places you've recommended.:)

Clare said...

Hi Joanna, I have absolutely loved your NYC guide - thank you! I am visiting NYC in Jan 2012 with my partner and I cannot wait to tick off all the places you have recommended! Have a wonderful weekend xx

Jaime Lee said...

love everything on New York. Thanks.
Bill Murray is one of my favorites, he looks so sad in that pic you have. He has a house in the small town of Hemet, California that I grew up in. Wish he would have showed up at a local bar or party when we were out. Hemet's local bar Chappies.

I also loved New York week! My husband and I honeymooned in NYC and had so much fun. I'm anti-tourist stuff, but I obliged and did a few to make him happy. I would love to go back (and now we have an almost one year old who I'm sure would love it too!) xx

Hi Jo,

Isn't that the most amazing photo of New York WOW!. I plan on visiting very soon and your week of posts has been very inspiring. Thank you,

Oh no not a mouse! We've been fighting them for a few weeks now, I thought they were cute and harmless at first, I have since taken on a different opinion :) I hope it was just one wandering in to check things out. I loved the guide, so many places in our town I haven't checked out. Have a happy weekend!

Kate said...

Joanna,
I LOVED your posts this week. I haven't been to New York in about 8 years... and you made me want to plan a return voyage! Someday soon!

rebecca said...

joanna-
you need to post the NYC guide all over again in the middle of January when i'm hatin' on new york.

Elizabeth Buckler said...

I think New Yorkers are so nice too! The last time I was there I stayed at the Hotel on Rivington in the lower east side and met so many people from Ohio, was approached by people, complimented, and invited out by the bartender at the hotel even. I was only there for a day on that trip but the only unfriendly person I encountered was the beautiful woman working at In God We Trust, go figure! That is, until we began talking of Vladimir Nobokov...

Anyways, it's been a fascinating week to dream of going back to New York on your blog!

Lise said...

we found a mouse in our house today too. haha.

Tamara Nicole said...

Gotta love NYC! I haven't been there for 6 yrs, time to trek back there:-)

enjoy your weekend love!

Kirstin said...

A candle that smells like newsprint? Yes please.

Liv Szari said...

I LOVED these past few posts on NYC, it's my favorite place in the world! Your posts made me miss it so much, I keep telling my husband "We need to go to the city!" pretty much everyday ;)

P.S. We bought that Lego Empire State Building in the gift shop right after we got engaged on top of the building last summer =)

I´ll be saving it for the next time I get the chance to visit, for sure.

Liliana said...

Hi Joanna, thanks for all of the great posts this week. As always I enjoyed your Friday links, especially the article about crying in public. I tend to be overly talkative and playful with strangers and they always look at me like I'm crazy, but it makes me feel good to be nice. Have a great weekend, I'm off to Chicago for my baby shower. Yay!

Janet Khor said...

I live for "have a nice weekend!" Seriously! Thanks for posting it every time

Ooh, that Times of New York Candle reminds me over the Paddywax Library candles based on famous authors: http://fortheloveofbookshops.wordpress.com/2011/09/27/paddywax-library-candles/

Love it!

Yikes! I can't handle the whole mice thing! That's probably the only reason I won't move to New York. Is it really that bad?

HAMPTON HOSTESS said...

love your NYC guide--and I live here

Wh. said...

Your guide was just AMAZING!!! Thank you so so much for sharing..
love :)

Aurora A said...

This was fun! I loved the link to crying in public. I remember being on the subway once after my first real heartbreak and a blind man playing beethoven on a violin made me burst into tears. I looked up, straight into another woman, also crying. It was one of the most intimate moments I've ever had with a stranger. Thanks!

OMG I dont live there anymore but did for 3 years and I definetely cried in public..its such a strange feeling..trying to hide it and then finally realizing its pointless ..too many people. Def a NYC rite of passage. That made me laugh ;)

Filip Demuinck said...

Top picture of Central Park. I enjoyed the view from Top of the Rock but this is not taken from that building.

Greetings,
Filip

The sounds of New York City link was awesome. I have never been on a subway, or a ferry, or the Brooklyn Bridge and after listening to those little clips of course now I feel like I have!

Danya said...

Still chuckling at The Onion article. I have actually yelled at horn honkers!!! Just going to buy a one-way to Scottsdale..

Amy said...

Great post, as always. Loved the crying in public article. As a "noncrier" I can't imagine crying in public. I head to the shower for a private cry. I can see, though, that being anonymous in a city and crying is very much the same since those who see you don't know you and won't usually ask. And it's drier, too.

I've thoroughly enjoyed this little series of yours. It is bookmarked for definite future use! Thanks : )

Kristina said...

This was a great series and I looked forward to reading them. You inspired me to do one on my beloved L.A.

Thanks for the awesome NYC posts! We moved here exactly 2 months ago, and have fallen in love with the city. Would you ever consider doing a "cold weather gear" post for NYC? We moved from Atlanta, and I have no idea what I'm going to need as we move into the cooler (and then colder) seasons. You're the best!

We had a mouse in the house (in our kitchen sink, yipes!) yesterday and I about had a heart attack. Hope you handled it much better than I did! (I covered the sink with a board so he couldn't get out and then left the house for the entire day until my husband could come home and take care of it. Tears may have also been involved. I'm such a baby!)

(And that's in LA for the record. ;)

p.s. The mouse ended up still being alive 12 hours later and was happily nibbling on a piece of cheese he found in the bottom of the sink. It was like a cartoon mouse!

I loved this series. So inspiring and insightful! I've learned in NYC for 3 years and learned all sorts of new fun things to try. BUT...I was wondering where the most romantic in all of NYC was? Did I miss that?

Unknown said...

I'm heading to NYC this weekend for a vacation, so your posts have been inspiring! Where is the title photo for this post from? Do you know if I could buy it as a print somewhere?

Crosby Beach said...

I LOVED that Onion article - every word is truth, but somehow you can't help but love this city :)

The Pockett said...

I can't believe how well timed these posts are. I've just spent my first week in New York and am already smitten... My favourite day so far has been walking the High Line and then biking down the west side of Manhattan taking in all the piers and parks, ending with a cycle across Brooklyn Bridge and exploring Dumbo. I can't wait to check out your other suggestions! Cheers!

I have read a few of the articles on your website now, and I really like your style of blogging. I added it to my favorites weblog list and will be checking back soon.
