Manhattan New York

NEW YORK CITY

There is a reason New York City is one of the most popular tourist cities in the world. Millions of people visit the Big Apple every year! I became one of those tourists this past month. 

This was my time visiting the concrete jungle. It was everything I wanted and more.

PRE-PLAN

I always take to the internet before any trip. I want to know my entertainment and food options so I don’t spend time researching once I get there. So I research…..

RESOURCES I USED

  1. Pinterest
  2. Bloglovin
  3. Yelp
  4. Friends & Family
  5. Google

By pre-planning, this allows for opportunities of spontaneity and living in the moment. Can I get a YAS QUEEN!

Anyways,

Below are a few places we hit up. We had an amazing tour guide for most of our trip. She is an amazing resource for NYC life. Find her blog here. → demidiaz.com

Breakfast:

  • Henry’s Coffee
  • Browns’s Bagels 

Lunch :

  • Penny’s Food Hall 
  • Rustic Table
  • Green Fig
  • Friedman’s
  • Malecon

Dinner:

  • The West Bank Cafe – Nice Italian
  • Bunna Cafe – Vegan Ethiopian 
  • Calle Dao – Brazilian Inspired

Snacks/Coffee:

  1. Tipsy Scoop – tipsyscoop.com
  2. Rue La La
  3. Dollar Pizza

FAQ

Q; What was my favorite part of NYC?

A; I loved the diversity! Seriously, I thrive off that sh**.

Q; What was my least favorite part of NYC?

A; Transportation. Don’t get me wrong, the subway system was hella fun, BUT, I could not imagine depending on it every single day. Nope.

Q; Do I now want to move there?

A; This is always a fun question. I realize that most places I visit, I often return home with the idea of moving to this recently visited place. But, NYC is not one of them. It’s a fantastic city but it’s not for me. New Yorkers are way more badass that I could ever dream of being.

Q; What about entertainment?

A; Yes, about that. We went to the infamous Brooklyn Bridge, Central Park, Rue La La

Q; Where did you guys stay?

A; Hotel Pennsylvania – I would check out the reviews before I recommend. It is in an ideal area, I will say that. The inside of the hotel is questionable, mainly because of how old the building is.

Q; Why did I visit New York? 

A; I was sent to NYC with a co-worker to attend SMX, an online marketing conference.

    I love the way you shoot photos. The behind-the-scenes shot and the half-face self-portrait are some of my favorites on the blog. Well done.

    You get really used to the subway system. It does not always smell good but it is a super efficient way to travel.

  • ✨// I miss that concrete jungle already! I had a fantastic first time experience in #NYC 🗽 // the food was superb, (I’ll do a blog post about that later) the people were surprising nice, the subway 🚉 was crazy but exhilarating! [I feel so badass now] 🙈 but I feel like I’ve aged 5 years. // That fast paced  lifestyle is fun for a few days, but I am excited to be back home. ❤️
