New York Bucket List

Whilst I'm living in New York City for just a year and as a very financially challenged intern, there are certain iconic moments that need to be taken in and by extension some I may need your help with.  So scroll down, take a look and either follow me along for this ride or pipe up if you know how I can make some of the more impossible happen.  As the year continues I'm sure I'll be adding to my New York Bucket List.
