Shapish is a graphic, motion & interactive designer I've studied and worked with few years ago. Since about two years he lives and works in New York. I've visited him in 2007 and 2008. Also when I was in New York it dawned to me that there is sooooo much to do in a city like the Big Apple that sometimes there just isn't time enough... And a lot of the times you end up doing what lots of tourists do — which often isn't the most interesting stuff... Well Shapish has posted a list of his NY-mag favs so if your planning a visit to The City this year you should surely take a peek at this post. It's a list with bars, restaurants, clubs and lots of other stuff.
