I Love New York with Chris Lane

I Love New York - Chris Lane


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, “Big, Big Plans” singer-songwriter, Chris Lane took over to give his Top 5 Picks in the personalized videos here on Instagram Highlights plus a rundown below.


#5 – Carbone, NYC

Lane kicks off his Top 5 Picks with a big shoutout to one of New York’s most well known Italian restaurants, Carbone. “I love Italian food and that’s a pretty good place,” Lane adds.


#4 – Yankees Stadium + Madison Square Garden

Next up, Lane includes two of his favorite venues as his #4 pick, Yankees Stadium and Madison Square Garden. “I am a big baseball fan, but also as an artist, I hope to sell out Madison Square Garden one day. That would be awesome.”


#3 – Favorite Food: Italian

Dropping his favorite food as his # 3 pick, Lane adds, “I am a big Italian fan and you can not go wrong in New York City with some Italian food.”


#2 – Favorite Memory: Sitting courtside at a NY Knicks Game

Including his favorite NYC memory in the # 2 spot,  Lane adds sitting courtside at a New York Knicks game at Madison Square Garden with his now-wife, Lauren Bushnell Lane. “I just started dating my now wife at the time and we got to sit courtside. It was a really cool moment and probably helped me win her over.”


#1 – The Plaza Hotel

Lane’s #1 Pick for his Top 5 Things he loves about NYC in our ‘I Love New York’ Series is: The Plaza Hotel. Lane says “My wife and I are both huge Home Alone fans, so we went to The Plaza Hotel and had the big Home Alone dessert and that’s what really sealed the deal.”
