Welcome! Thanks for stopping by. In 2011, began this New York blog as a hobby. Originally, it was a way to document my experiences after I moved to Manhattan. I started crafting email updates to friends and family in 2007, and those city stories were the beginning of this blog. Since then, the site has evolved into an NYC-based lifestyle and travel blog that offers the best of living, food, culture, travel, and more to readers around the world.
Read about nights on the town, and things and places we love. Know how New Yorkers live, work, and play. Roam through NYC’s distinct neighborhoods and discover what’s unique about each. New York is, after all, a city of small towns.
Get travel tips and advice for your next trip to New York. See what New Yorkers are wearing. Taste the best pizza. Learn how to ride the New York subway. Escape NYC for a long weekend and recharge your batteries, or follow me to an international destination.
Early on, this blog had a tiny audience with some friends and family reading. Now I have followers on six continents, some of whom have become friends. I write on the blog every week, and I’m fortunate to have a few loyal contributors.
Poke around a bit, and stay for a while! I hope you find this blog informative and entertaining and come back to visit often. Have questions? Let’s connect!
