Hi guys, I'm heading to New York in a couple of weeks and I was looking for recomendations on what to do and where to shop. I'm not too interested in the tourist stuff, I'm just hoping to experience the city in it's pinup loving glory. So where should I go? What do I HAVE to eat? Where's the best vintage/repro shops?

I look forward to your responces!

Hey Suzanne! I do all of my shopping online, but there is a shop called ENZ's that sells pinup and rockabilly.  The pinup scene isn't that big here, I rarely see anyone dressed in this fashion.  But what's great is that you can also find a ton of great stuff just by walking around.

For drinks, I love the bar Otto's Shrunken Head - it's a tiki bar and they have rockabilly nights so definitely check out their website.  I've had some fun times here over the years. http://www.ottosshrunkenhead.com/  Also, I haven't been there yet but some girls mentioned the bar nurse bettie as well, it's on my list of places to check out.

If the weather cooperates when you're here, I would also definitely make the trip out to coney island (brooklyn) and ride the wonder wheel, it's a really scenic view, maybe check out the freak museum.

Ugh, sorry I couldn't be more helpful, I'm a bad native! Hopefully others can contribute some ideas. 

XOXO hope you enjoy your trip! 

Also forgot to mention, there is a Bettie Page Clothing shop on bowery street, which is awesome!
