I Love New York with Jimmie Allen

Our ‘I Love New York’ Series features artists in the country music community taking over our Instagram Story each week to give us the Top 5 Things they love most about New York City.

This week, singer-songwriter, Jimmie Allen, who just released his latest project: Bettie James, took over to give his Top 5 Picks in the personalized videos here on Instagram Highlights plus a rundown below.


#5 – Madison Square Garden

Allen kicks off his Top 5 Picks with Madison Square Garden. “While I do love the Lakers, I do appreciate the history of Madison Square Garden,” Allen says.


#4 – Zara

What is a trip to New York City without a little shopping spree. Allen includes Zara as his #4 pick, adding “I’ve noticed you have a lot of Zara stores and some things you have at one store and not at the other, so yes, Zara.”


#3 – Central Park

In the middle of the big bustling city is the quiet and serene, Central Park. Allen adds the famed location as his #3 Pick. “Central Park is somewhere I would always go just to clear my head, go for a run. I’ve actually roller-skated there before too. I fell once or twice, but yea, Central Park is great.”


#2 – Bubba Gump Shrimp

All New York trips have to include good eats, right? Allen adds Times Square’s Bubba Gump Shrimp as his #2 I Love New York Pick. “Every time I go to New York, I always go there,” he says.


#1 – Broadway

Allen’s #1 Pick for his Top 5 Things he loves about NYC in our ‘I Love New York’ Series is: Broadway. “I love musical theater. I’ve seen countless shows on Broadway and I look forward to when I can go back and see more shows again.”
