Single Kim Kardashian ‘down for some hookups’ in NYC

New York: It seems single Kim Kardashian is ready to mingle.

The brunette babe and sister Kourtney touched down at JFK Airport, and it looks like their stay will be semi permanent. The two are starring in a new E! reality series, called "Kourtney and Kim Take New York," set to debut in January.

And it seems the phrase "take New York" might actually mean "take New York`s men." (At least for Kim – Kourtney remains committed to son Mason`s dad, Scott Disick).

Kardashian, who split with NFL player Miles Austin last month after their long-distance relationship proved too hard to manage, says she`s "down for some hookups" in the Big Apple.

"Everyone is now trying to hook me up," the New York Daily News quoted her as telling Ryan Seacrest on his KIIS-FM radio show.

"In a way, since I hate meeting new people and I hate that first-dating thing, it`s kind of reassuring to know, `Okay, this [person] knows them, so maybe they``re normal.` "

But is she really ready to take on Manhattan as a single woman? Yes. In fact, she`s quite excited.

"I never have really given it a shot to be single," she explained. "I tried to play that role, but I really wasn`t single. And now, I`m really officially on my own, and I`m in a whole different city."

Kardashian added, the move "couldn`t have come at a more perfect time for me to just get out of my [current] life and start anew."
