Technical issues have decreed that this post is coming out three days later than planned, but hey, better late than never, right?
Unfortunately, I’m probably not heading back to New York anytime soon, but a girl can dream, right?
If you’re also dreaming of the City that Never Sleeps, here are some things to bide you over until your [eventual and inevitable] return.
The Bell Jar | Sylvia Plath
The Catcher in the Rye | JD Salinger
The Great Gatsby | F. Scott Fitzgerald
Here Is New York | EB White
Isla & the Happily Ever After | Stephanie Perkins
New York: The Novel | Edward Rutherford
The Percy Jackson and the Olympians series | Rick Riordan
Breakfast at Tiffany’s
Hitch [I think it’s the only romcom I’ve ever seen in my life.]
Men in Black [Actually, you know what? 99% of sci-fi films are set in New York or a post-apocalyptic version of it, so freakin’ go for it if watching aliens wreck everything is your thing. I support you.]
Requiem for a Dream
My posts regarding a trip taken summer, 2014.
My posts just gushing about New York in general.
Buzzfeed’s mouth-watering list of affordable things to eat in NYC!
Buzzfeed has a lot of great destination posts. Here’s another one that’s just about nice things about summers in NYC.
30 Rock. I’ve yet to watch it myself, but it’s definitely on the list!
Elementary is one of the cooler modern takes on Sherlock Holmes, and it’s set in gorgeous New York!
Friends, of course!
How I Met Your Mother. It’s basically the same thing as Friends. It’s also my guilty pleasure.
Mr. Robot is another show on my watch list! It’s about hackers, I think. Like, 99% sure.
White Collar and Matt Bomer’s face are my most recent additions to ‘Lynn’s list of guilty pleasures.’ Don’t judge. It’s a fun, dynamic crime series, and it’s set in New York!
If you have any suggestions for the list, leave them in the comments!
