Adam Jacobs’ New York

Adam Jacobs is currently starring in the Tony nominated hit new Disney musical 'Aladdin' on Broadway

When I first got here from San Francisco, I thought, “This is craziness.” The city never sleeps. It just goes, goes, goes, and it was very exciting.

What do you love about New York?

1. Central Park. It’s beautiful, especially now when the weather is so beautiful. I specifically love going around the reservoir. I also love Sheep Meadow, where people just lay out in the sun. For anybody who lives in the city, when you see a blade of grass, you go crazy.  I grew up near the ocean in San Francisco. So, I was always a beach boy. I miss nature. And even though you can still see the high rises in the background in the park, just being among the nature brings me peace.

2. I love the theater where I’m performing, the New Amsterdam Theatre. It’s one of the oldest theaters in New York, and every time I’m on that stage, I look out in that house and see how beautiful it is. They did such a good job restoring it. The architecture is so special.

3. There’s a bakery near my house in Sunnyside, Queens that I love to go to called Nita’s. It’s local and owned by a bunch of Romanians who are in my neighborhood. They have great rugelach.
