101 Days, 101 Nights, 101 Adventures in NYC

So the old cliched adage is true: time truly does fly when you’re having fun. As today marks my 101st day (but who’s counting…) as a full-time Manhattan resident, I thought it apropros to publish this self-explanatory “Best of NYC” list that promises liquid inspiration, cultural stimulation and hunger satiation. So here it is – a comprehensive alphabetical list of 101 favorite locales that I’ve frequented – or, more specifically, checked-into via my Foursquare addition – during my first 101 days as a New Yorker (the 101 is, of course, a nod to my all-time favorite Walt Disney animated film – 101 Dalmatians).

    • Hi Sarah! Many thanks for the kind comment! I am also a twenty-something in Manhattan who is very budget-consicous but really appreciates the “exceptional value” spots so hopefully this list will help you! 🙂 If you have any more specific questions about the list, send me a tweet (@gregbodenlos) or e-mail at gregbodenlos@gmail.com

  1. Very impressive – both for the quality of the selections and as a testament to your stamina. That must be some metrocard bill you have.
    Bookmark for sure!

    • Thanks for the kind feedback Sean! I always love your industry report updates for HSMAI by the way…will definitely formally introduce myself to you the next chance I get. And yes I do have quite the amount of energy as a new NYC arrival but thank goodness for the unlimited monthly metro card! Came quite in handy when compiling this list…
