|Bloomingdales 59th & Lex Flagship - The only REAL Bloomingdales if you ask me!|
|The pinnacle of luxury shopping and home to all things fashionably awesome|

There are so many things that New Yorkers take for granted because they seem ordinary when you live there. Like the amazingness that is Grand Central station for one. Where else can you pick up a birthday present for a child, meet a friend for an after work cocktail, choose from dozens of delicious options for ready to eat gourmet meals to bring home or to visit a friend, grab a last minute birthday cake or my personal favorite, a box of Magnolia Bakery cupcakes and then board a train, all in a matter of minutes?

We wind up running down to the track together and collapse in the first set of open seats while gasping for air, convulsing with giggles and making strained declarations of "we made it!" Sure there are a few sideways glances cast from the serial commuters behind their Kindles but oh well, moments like those are priceless to me.
Which brings me to my next point of why I #LoveThisCity and a little part of me is still incredibly jealous of my little sisters who continue to reside in New York...there are a bunch of pretty amazing experiences to be had through Mastercard's priceless experiences in New York that are happening right now.

My foodie friends would be all over the cooking demo and dinner at Bouley Test Kitchen later in January where a group of 20 will participate in a hands on cooking demo with Daniel Bouley himself and then get to indulge in a sit down dinner with wine pairings. Seriously? I'd actually consider flying back just to take my sisters to that event.
So if you have a Mastercard and will be in New York this coming month I'd take a minute and browse the Priceless.com experiences. Many of them are free to Mastercard holders and would make for a fantastic gift, date night or girls bonding day. I'll be green as the Grinch with envy from 2500 miles away as I plan my next trip back in the Spring. Sigh.
