So many people come to NY and tell me that they’d love to have a picnic at the park. They see so many locals having fun and they want the same experience, but don’t know where to start from or don’t have time to plan it all.

In addition, going to Central Park can be an overwhelming experience due to all the tourists roaming around. But, going to Central Park, with the right information of the best hidden spots for a delicious, unique picnic, can be priceless!

Plus, it’s also a great idea for a special celebration or a romantic afternoon at the park!

Well, we love this experience! Many of our private clients and corporate clients do too, and we’ve written about it before!

You will definitely have a great time! There are countless different options to choose from!

Horseback Riding

BTSNYC Experiences On Going Outdoor Activities Horseback Riding Central Park

Yes! You can do horseback riding at Central Park too! Different from the carriages that over work the horses, our partner takes really good care of them.

Each horse works a maximum of 6hours a day and are transported to the park properly.

The tours are 1 hour long and pass by the most beautiful spots in the park from Strawberry Fields, where the John Lennon memorial is, to the Reservoir and other special spots.

If you have kids, it’s also a great activity since they have 10min pony rides. Little ones should be 2 years old at least and the guide is beside them all the time.

I rode Oscar, a huge, beautiful, white horse and had a great time exploring Central Park through another angle.

Contact us for more information and to book the experience!


Jet Ski in the Hudson River

I had heard before that people could rent a jet ski, hop on and enjoy the Hudson River! But, I had never really tried it.

Well, I finally decided to be brave and go try it out, after all, how cool is it to actually ride a jet ski on this famous river?!

We got the ferry at a downtown spot, ride beside the 9/11 Memorial and head to a Marina on the Jersey side. It’s only 15min away from Manhattan. Super quick and seamless.

Each way costs $8/person and ferries leave quite frequently, so don’t worry.

There are 2 types of rides, a shorter one that covers mostly Midtown Manhattan and downtown, and the 2.5h ride that you actually drive around the entire Manhattan island. So cool!

I had a great time! The view is truly spectacular, it’s a priceless experience and the Hudson water is quite, by the way!

How to Look Impossibly Chic in NYC at All Times

Shop Ladies Look Chic In NYC Chris Murray

We all know that New York City is known for being one of the top fashion capitals in the world. Ladies (and gents) from countless countries try to replicate the NYC style. So, we’ve decided to share how to you can look amazingly chic in NYC at all times!

Shop Ladies Look Chic In NYC Accessories Crystal Jo

Although the New York City look is well documented, defining it is still hard. New York women are known as some of the most stylish and sleek in the world. And, they always look impossibly chic in NYC day and night!

Their signature mark is being able to look fashionable and effortless at the same time.

Series like Sex and the City and Gossip Girl were shot in New York and shared priceless insights into the fashion scene and style!

If your goal is to look chic and polished, you are in the right place! With a couple of tips and tricks, it’s possible to pull off the NYC look without too much hassle.

This quick guide is designed to help you look impossibly chic in NYC at all times!


1. Invest in Wardrobe Classics and Pick Your Trend

NYC girls are not slaves to fashion trends. They would rather spend money on good quality basics and investment pieces and go with a high-low mix.

They manage to combine timeless, well-made coats, shoes, and bags with items from Topshop or H&M brands.

So, to start, you need to know what suits you and your body type and work the latest trend around that.

Load up on classics like fitted jackets, a great pair of jeans, cashmere sweaters, a couple of dresses, and a perfect pair of pumps.

These wardrobe staples will allow you to mix and match the garments and look fabulous in minutes. We love the Israeli designer, Nili Lotan, with all her simple sophistication or try exploring the vintage and thrift shops in NYC!

For instance, a leather jacket with some skinny jeans and a beanie will keep you looking chic while giving your outfit a certain edge.


2. Embrace a More Undone Look

Shop Ladies Look Chic In NYC Dusan Jovic

The key to looking effortlessly chic is in mastering the undone look.

This look is cool, classy, and relaxed at the same time. Dressing for comfort is what New Yorkers do, but they add a twist to it with a couple of nice touches.

For instance, relaxed clothing should be balanced with more structured pieces. Try combining slouchy trousers with a structured sweatshirt and a cocoon coat. UMA | Raquel Davidowicz has a timeless style and some truly amazing items.

When done right, a messy bun and smudged eyeliner will up your overall aesthetics level, with just a little bit of effort.


3. Add Statement Accessories to Elevate Your Style

The key to a show-stopping look is in the specific details.

When you need something a little more unique, turn to statement pieces. They are perfect for dressing up a minimalistic outfit or elevating an already glamorous look.

You can easily take any look to the next level by simply adding statement earrings, oversized sunglasses, or a bejeweled bag to your ensemble.

If you are interested in learning more about jewelry, like how to determine whether your sterling silver pieces are genuine, take a look at Moon Magic’s blog for Inspiration.


4. Having the Right Shoes is a Must

Shop Ladies Look Chic In NYC Courtney Cook

The right pair of shoes will add the perfect amount of flair to any outfit.

When it comes to New York, try to strike a fine balance between practical but unstylish and stylish yet ultra-uncomfortable.

Don’t worry; it’s possible to be comfortable and chic.

Try mid-heeled booties, ankle boots, oxford lace-ups, smoking loafers, or low-heel sandals for summertime. They are versatile and comfortable enough to navigate the constant motion required in NYC.

A cool pair of sneakers can also do the trick, especially if you pair them with a graphic Tee and jeans, a printed wrap top, denim cutoff, or a feminine dress.

Also, keep in mind that people mostly walk and commute through the subways in NYC. Many times, it’s much faster than grabbing an Uber, specially during rush hours. If you’re exploring the New York City’s top attractions, be sure to get your comfortable shoes.

There are countless amazing brands, but you can start looking at some like Schutz, Alexander Birman or Josefina Portugal. Their sneakers are super trendy and extremely comfortable for walking.


5. Keep Your Grooming Habits on Point

New Yorkers are religious about their maintenance, so you need to nail it too.

Starting with the right foundation is the surefire way to look stylish at all times. Again, there is an infinity of brands at different price points, so you might want to swing by Sephora, for example, to see what suits you best!

In addition, regular visits to your hairdresser, neat brows, and a regular manicure will help you enhance your appearance and upgrade your look.

Not sure where to go to get your hair and nails done? Well, we love the Brazilian-born hair expert Rogerio Cavalcante and if you’re blond, or like to go blond, he’s the guy! Also, the duo behind Olivia Palermo’s amazing hair is another great option!

Don’t forget about your skin!

Quality skin products, along with enough sleep and a well-balanced diet, will keep it healthy and revitalized.


6. Hat Always Works in New York

A hat is the type of accessory that can take your outfit up a notch.

Whatever the gender or the season, covering your head in NYC is always in.

In the sun, go with fedoras and straw hats, and in the wintertime, beanies are an excellent choice. If you want to add a bit of chic French touch to your outfit, try a beret.

Whether you choose a fancier hat or a plain one, it gives off an urban city girl’s vibe.

To help you out, we love these two talented hat designers: Teressa Foglia and Satya Twena. If you want something exclusive, ask about their custom-made pieces!

In the end, it’s not that hard to look impossibly chic in NYC at all times. Whatever you choose to put on, make sure to wear it with confidence, ‘cause that’s what New York is all about!

How to Take Stunning Photos of New York City

Curiosities City Secrets How to Take Stunning Photos of New York City

New York is atop many travelers’ bucket lists, and for many good reasons. Today we’re going to show you how to take stunning photos of New York City. You’ll not only capture memorable moments, but also make your social media channels overflow with likes!

Curiosities City Secrets How to Take Stunning Photos of New York City

NYC only is it one of the world’s leading metropolises for art, fashion, food and theater, but it’s also one of the greatest cities to photograph. So, we’re here to give you valuable tips on how to take stunning photos of New York City, find unique spots to shoot and use the right gear!

If you happen to be an avid photographer and are visiting NYC for the first time, you may be overwhelmed with the creative possibilities available when roaming around the city, right?

Whether for the simple pleasure of taking photos, or for a commercial venture, here are some tips for taking stunning shots of the Big Apple:


Do Your Research

There’s no doubt that winging it works during photo walks, but if you want to make the most out of your experience photographing New York City, it’s always best to plan ahead.

When planning your travel itinerary, take the time to do research on the spots you want to take pictures of. The biggest advantage of this is how much time you will save getting to different areas.

If you don’t research, you may end up backtracking a lot and reducing the number of scenic spots you get to visit. Commuting in New York is easy but can be very time consuming.

If you don’t know where to start, you start with popular spots that both tourists and photographers alike frequent.

Look at visiting the iconic Bethesda Terrace located in Central Park, or perhaps the High Line, which is an old abandoned rail trail on the west side of Manhattan that was renovated years ago into a fantastic spot to explore.

To optimize your time, try to divide your explorations per neighborhood, so you don’t keep bouncing from one end of the city to the other. From here you can easily plan your next move.


Bring the Right Gear

It goes without saying that you need the proper gear in order to take genuinely stunning shots.

While mobile photography is becoming more and more popular these days due to the increasingly advanced cameras built into smartphones, nothing beats the quality you get from using a professional camera such as a DSLR.

This is because there is wide array of accessories, especially lenses, for traditional cameras that will vary the type of photos you can take.

Adorama’s professional photography gear includes DSLR cameras and shows how lenses can range from 18mm to 200mm, which allow photographers to take photos from different distances.

You can also select specialist macro lenses that allows you to sharp, detailed, close-up photos of small subjects (think the various plants found in Central Park), while wide-angle ones are ideal for taking images of scenic landscapes like the Brooklyn Bridge.


Experiment with Angles

Post-production helps with elevating your shots from good to great, but you need to start with something that’s already beautiful to begin with.

When shooting, writer Anthony Andranik Moumjian recommends taking as many shots as you can of your subject at every angle you can creatively imagine (which is why it is best to bring a wide range of lenses).

Unless you live in the city, you will only have a limited time to photograph New York. So, taking many shots at enough angles and with enough volume raises your chances of achieving “the shot” at every place you visit.

New York City is a beauty on its own and is “easy” to photograph, but finding a unique angle will definitely set you apart from all other photographers.


Visit lesser-known spots

Popular destinations are popular for a reason. But, if you truly want a unique perspective in your photos, you may want to look into exploring lesser-known destinations in the city. And, that’s totally our expertise and up our alley…as you probably already know!

For example, seeking out hidden gems such as the 620 Loft and Gallery on the roof of the Rockefeller Center are some of the spots we love best! This will provide you will a skyline perspective that many visitors miss out on.

You can also visit hidden gems like Freeman Alley, where you can find a quaint restaurant with fairy lights and a relatively new speakeasy bar, or the Freedom Tunnel where you can come across some interesting graffiti.

There is no city like New York, and while you may think it is impossible to take unique photos of the Big Apple, with a little research, the right equipment, and the desire to seek out hidden gems you will take some truly stunning photos.

Be sure to share with us your findings on the comments below! We’d love to see the places you explored and what you thought about them!

Intangible Forms by Shohei Fujimoto at ARTECHOUSE NYC

Come explore Intangible Forms by Shohei Fujimoto, the new immersive installation at ARTECHOUSE! Be sure to guarantee your tickets…it’s for a limited time!

ARTECHOUSE invited us to another exclusive preview to experience a new immersive installation called Intangible Forms by Shohei Fujimoto!

This time, the new fully immersive visual experience is a multi-sensory, abstract journey into the known and unknown of the world around us.

It opened to the public on March 3rd, but due to the Covid-19 Pandemic closed in only a few days. Now, they reopened following all social distancing and safety protocols.

So, take a look below to see what it’s all about and guarantee your tickets!


About Intangible Forms:

The multi-sensory installation is abstract in nature and minimalist in form. It reveals to the viewer the elaborate and invisible systems that underlie our reality, making visible the powerful forces that shape our every moment.

The results are dramatic, visceral, almost operatic in nature. It invites guests to exist in a space and time all its own, for the duration of the visit. 1 Light, time, and autonomy are recurring motifs that travel throughout the installation. Coded operations serve as a building block for Fujimoto’s process of exploration.

Often, Fujimoto refers to code and the mathematical operations as the invisible markers that create form. Sculpting imagery not in a particular shape, but sculpting the mathematical operations behind the image to give shape. Both intricate and alluring, Fujimoto’s works are prime examples for a new way of drawing and creating visual artworks.

In addition, the centerpiece installation invites us to see the intangible as tangible using kinetic laser modules set in a hazy soundscape.

But, what is it all about?

”I’ve been trying to generate virtual consciousness and, in extension, virtual life in this work, triggering a deeper sense of humanity in ourselves” – shares Fujimoto.

This central idea continues through a series of four more works spread throughout the space. All of which are created to exist in their own time axis with limited functionality, that imitate life phenomena around us.

“I hope by the end of their visit, the guests are able to focus on their own universal sense of being.”


More about ARTECHOUSE:

Founded in 2015 by arts advocates Sandro and Tati, ARTECHOUSE is a new age art destination dedicated to showcasing works by groundbreaking artists who work with new technology and new forms of creative expression.⁠

ARTECHOUSE will offer visitors and artists alike the most technologically advanced art platform in the world.

So, Can You Afford to Move to NYC?

Curiosities City Secrets Can You Afford to Move to NYC Kat Maryschuk

Many people dream of packing up their life, getting out of that one-horse town, and starting anew in New York City, and why wouldn’t they? But, can you afford to move to NYC?!

Curiosities City Secrets Can You Afford to Move to NYC Matteo Catanese

As the cultural capital of the world, New York has something for everybody, but the question is: Can you afford to move to NYC?

Like any big city, you need to be able to afford it, and while you’ve romanticized boho dreams of the struggling artist, there is nothing glamorous about struggling to make ends meet.

Our founder, Fernanda, did THE move almost 6 years ago and has quite an exciting story to share!

Before making your move to the Big Apple, here’s what you need to know.


Fix Your Finances

Fixing your finances is vital before you make any significant move. So, it’s not wise to make your move while still partying off debts, especially considering how expensive New York can be.

There are solutions to help you, though.

For example, the Debt to Success System is completely legitimate, and it can assist in fixing your finances and providing crucial debt relief to make you more confident before making your move.

Another idea is to start putting together a thorough spreadsheet where you can start listing all your future expenses to understand what your monthly cost would be. With that number in mind, it will be easier to start planning.


Know The Neighborhood

There are plenty of neighborhoods across New York. Some of them are hip and fun, whereas others have seen better days. This might be something that appeals to you, so it’s worth knowing where you want to live, and whether that’s even possible.

For families, Metropolitan New York is the best place to go, but if you want to be close to culture and the financial hub, there is nowhere more suitable than Manhattan.

However, you could also consider Brooklyn and Queens, while Staten Island and the Bronx are enjoying something of a regeneration, with plenty of low-income housing available to help mitigate the initial costs.


Finding a Job

There are plenty of jobs in New York, but this could depend on what you’re looking for.

Many people come to New York to live their dream. They want to get into TV, or they want to take Broadway by storm. While there’s nothing wrong with having these dreams, the competition can be fierce and brutal.

Don’t expect to be able to waltz in and have your pick of the jobs available unless you have arranged beforehand, whether you’re a US citizen or someone coming in on a working visa.

There are ways to supplement your income in the interim, with hospitality opportunities in abundance. Well,  it’s actually something to keep your eyes on and follow the post Covid scenario.


Making Concessions

As of last year, the average rent for a two-bed apartment in the city is $2,499, while studio and one-bedroom places are $1,889 and $2,098 for the month. This means, if you want to afford to live in NYC, you’ll need to make several concessions.

Apartment sharing is popular (and necessary), while you may also have to give up luxuries.

Some of these luxuries won’t matter, such as your car because of the wealth of transport options, but you may also need to give Netflix a miss too, at least until you find your footing.


The City So Nice

There are uncountable reasons why so many people flock to New York City every year with dreams of making it big or even experiencing one of the most exciting places in the world.

The city can be as expensive as you make it, but you’ll still need to have a decent backup of funds before you arrive.

So, start planning yourself and don’t forget to count on unexpected expenses…they always show up in New York City! Plan, plan and plan!

Years after its ten-year run, Friends continues to strike a chord among old fans and generations of new ones.

Enjoy our tips below to the Ultimate Guide to Planning Your ‘F.R.I.E.N.D.S.’ Tour in NYC and have fun!


The one with the fountain

While singing those lyrics, you might have pictured a certain fountain with the whole cast playfully splashing around in their coordinated black and white outfits in the opening credits.

Although this was also shot on the Warner Bros back lot, debates abound on whether it is based on the Cherry Hill Fountain in Central Park or the Pulitzer Fountain in Midtown West’s Grand Army Plaza.

While you can choose which of these locations you prefer, feel free to dance around as much as you want as it’s a public space, after all. Just be sure that you don’t jump in!

Although the memorable orange couch won’t be stationed in front of the fountain as in the credits, you can still sit around, people watch, and perhaps even whip a guitar out and belt out ‘Smelly Cat’ à la Phoebe Buffay.


The one with the apartment building

Much of the Friends action takes place on the corner of Grove and Bedford Street in the West Village. It’s better known as the destination of the kitschy Central Perk coffee shop as well as majority of the clique’s apartments.

This little corner destination is also a spot on the NYC TV & Movie Tour, but sadly, you’ll have to use your imagination to visualize the Central Perk logo.

Instead, you can actually walk into the Little Owl restaurant in its place and have a cup of coffee or even a full meal. Don’t expect Gunther to serve you – just pretend you’re at your own cozy little neighborhood joint and enjoy the distant chatter.


The one with the bridge

The Brooklyn Bridge and Friends have inevitably become intertwined because of how prominently it is featured on the show – including many scenes of the gang driving along it.

Just last year, fans of the series congregated on the Brooklyn Bridge for a special reunion called the “Friends 25th Vegas Takeover” with Lego replicas of its sets, live performances, and an appearance of Ross’s former pet monkey, Marcel.

The landmark is often used to promote merchandise from the series and has been featured on traditional games like Scene It! and Trivial Pursuit.

The iconic bridge is still being used to promote Friends across digital mediums with a dedicated title among the selection of slot games on Cheeky Bingo putting the Brooklyn Bridge front and center.

This not only shows how Friends is reaching new fans, but how the Brooklyn Bridge has come to symbolize the show. Fans who want a tangible memento of this image can look into the array of merchandise, as the collectible box sets feature the main cast in front of the iconic bridge.


Friends has become a pop culture phenomenon and its memory continues to live on 25 years later.

As a reunion is in the pipeline and the series and all related things are within arm’s reach, all you have to do is plan your trip. No matter when you schedule your visit, know that these places will be there for you!

So, our 1st from the 15 spots in New York for every photographer to explore, is located in Brooklyn!

This photo above is at the intersection of Washington Street and Water Street and is easily classified as one of the most photogenic spots in New York. DUMBO, a neighborhood known for its cobbled streets, got its nickname because it is located right under the Manhattan Bridge (Down Under The Manhattan Bridge – aka DUMBO). Looking at the bridge from the crossroads you can easily see the Empire State Building under its arches. This is the New York that everyone wants to get a taste of

When we think of New York we are often wowed by its majestic value. It’s a place that excites us and a place many have grown up watching on TV. New York is full of areas that bring art to life and are a dream for both filmmakers and photographers alike.

Tourists too, often flock to many places in the city for the perfect Instagram post. If you are in New York, you will probably know of all the great spots to stay. Accommodation in the city is massive, there is something for everyone and if you are traveling and are carrying lots of bulky cases and equipment you may need somewhere to store it. You may want to look at baggage storage to ensure that you have somewhere to keep your things before your next flight.

So, what makes New York tick? Well, plenty!

A little tip: when you travel to New York, it’s important to always respect the daily life of the locals. New York is full of people who have lived here all their lives and tourism can get heavy. There are so many ways to enjoy the view of a point of interest without making tourism a nuisance

So, where are these places that are incredibly Instagram worthy? Let’s face it, in New York City, a subway station is an epic Instagram shot alone!

Here are some more of our top picks for novice New York travelers and for every photographer to explore.

You might bump into quite a few tourists, which we are typically running away from, but for the 1st timer, these are the must-see spots:

#2 New York Public Library

Also known as the Stephen A. Schwarzman building, has been not only the scene of countless blockbuster movies but, on the other hand, it’s a sacred refuge for New Yorkers that need time off from the noise.

#3 The Empire State Building

It’s great and definitely a place to visit if you never have before. But, we do love the Top of the Rock Observation Deck at the Rockefeller Center. Its 360º view is unbeatable.

#4 NY City Hall

Getting married in New York City is the dream of countless brides and brides-to-be out there, right? Well, to make it right – if you do make your dream come true – is go get your Marriage License at New York’s City Hall! So Carrie Bradshaw style…!

#5  Carry Bradshaw’s Apartment

…Which, we can’t forget when talking about the City of Dreams (and fashion, and art, and gastronomy…and…)! Well, it’s the best city. So, you must visit Carry Bradshaw’s apartment in the West Village – or just Village for the locals! 66 Perry Street.

#6 Foley Square

Located right in front of the famous New York County Supreme Court. Remember Harvey Spector and Mike Ross in the series Suits? We miss these guys…

#7 East Village

One of our favorite neighborhoods! It’s crazy (but we’re thankful), how tourists have not yet discovered how awesome the East Village area is! If you’re a food enthusiast, this area a great area to explore countless local gems!

#8 Little Italy

Mangia Che Ti Fa Benne! Literally, it translates to “Eat that it will make you well!”. Italians believe in the power of food and in the beauty of the entire food experience! And, Little Italy will welcome you into this mind set! Be sure to stop at any of the famous restaurants to enjoy pasta or pizza, with a nice glass of wine!

#9 Chinatown

Probably one of the most underrated areas in Manhattan. I guess, people just don’t know their way around the neighborhood, but those that do have a great time exploring speakeasy bars, amazing local restaurants like Buddha Bodai, creative cuisines…and some even venture into those small underground “spas” for a good foot massage.

#10 Soho

Not on the top of our list, but if you’re an Influencer, or aspiring Influencer, the area is the mecca for Instagram Fashion Photography. But yes, SoHo’s cobblestone streets are truly a beautiful background.

#11 Brooklyn Bridge

Probably the most famous Bridge in the world, and also one of the most unique for sure! It’s definitely a touristy attraction overflowing with visitors, locals bike riding their way across the bridge for work, local merchants selling small gifts…it’s a real confusion, hahaha! But, crossing the Brooklyn Bridge always gives me some of the most amazing feelings and you’re really able to experience New York City’s energy.

#12 Flatiron Building

Another great spot for photographers and visitors is the Flatiron Building. Its architecture is amazing, and it has a big history. Built in 1902, this magnificent building is located between 5th Avenue and Broadway. The neighborhood has become very popular and the pedestrian paths in front of the building as well as the nearby Madison Square Park are ideal scenery for photos.

#13 Brooklyn Wall Art

Graffiti is a huge deal in New York and has been relatively European, but not anymore. Lots of areas of Brooklyn have artistic walls, which make for great photography. Williamsburg, for example, has plenty of vivid graffiti murals that are unique and signed by famous names like Eduardo Kobra, or just Kobra! It’s time to discover the real New York. If you have time, go get lost in Bushwick (only a few subway stops from Williamsburg, also in Brooklyn), also known for The Bushwick Collective with its graffiti and street arts.

#14 Greenwich Village

One of the most beautiful places, the Greenwich Village, is known for its beautiful buildings, its red bricks or brownstones, and the different shades of green that exist in every corner of the area. Also, it boasts plenty of peace and quiet from the bustling city. The area is known for being a historic place in the fight for the LGBTQ+ rights and where the famous Stonewall Riot happened in 1969, kickstarting this movement.

#15 Liberty Island

Now this is surely a photographer’s dream location (but not a paradise for locals running away from the flocking tourists. Liberty Island is a small, uninhabited island, which hosts our beautiful and powerful Lady Liberty (aka Statue of Liberty).

The statue is 93 meters high and the seven rays of the crown represent the seven seas and seven continents. It takes about an hour to see it all and to take all the photos you’ll want – a bit longer if you really want to capture the hum of the city.

The view of Manhattan’s skyline, from the island, is unique and truly unforgettable – it’s a must for any new tourist to the city. If you do not want to get off the ferry boat, you might want to take the Staten Island Ferry that is a free option and you can see the Statue. Unless…you want to go inside the statue where it costs around $18.

It’s the true heart of NYC and a place that you will always remember visiting. The city itself is home to so much beauty so it’s always best to get around walking and exploring all neighborhoods. Leave the Ubers for nighttime when you decide to slip into those heals (or pretty shoes)!

3 Neat Ways To Make Your Trip To NYC A Little More Comfy

Curiosities Our Bucket Lists 3 Ways To Make Your Trip To NYC More Comfy Matias Difabio

Traveling to New York City is always exciting and definitely on so many Bucket Lists around the globe. But, it can also be quite overwhelming. To help you out, take a look at 3 neat ways to make your trip to NYC a little more comfy.

Curiosities Our Bucket Lists 3 Ways To Make Your Trip To NYC More Comfy Matias Difabio

Whether you see yourself as a globe-trotting individual or not, you can’t say that New York City has never interested you. How about organizing that trip to NYC?

The fame, the glitz, the glamour, the opportunities – the big apple is known by pretty much every single human being on the planet and is somewhere that temps all.

Whenever a person writes out a bucket list of places they’ve like to visit, NYC is always near the top of the list.

Let’s say you’ve made the decision to get out of your natural habitat and enter the city that never sleeps. You’ve decided to bite the bullet and visit one of the most legendary places the world has ever seen (and will ever see).

How can one make the trip a little easier themselves? As a newbie to a big city, you might feel a little intimidated by the prospect of being among it all.

Well, when the city reopens and we’re able to travel again, here are just a few things you can do to make things a little easier:


Create A Plan For Your Trip To NYC

Curiosities Our Bucket Lists 3 Ways To Make Your Trip To NYC More Comfy Element5 Digital

If you have an idea of what you’re doing, then things will be a lot smoother.

On the other hand, if you are all over the place in terms of deciding what to do during your trip to NYC, the furor of the city might catch up with you. And, you may become completely overwhelmed by everything going on during the day.

If you create a plan or an itinerary of some sort, then you’re going to have a better chance of seeing what you want. You’ll also feel a lot better mentally as you head out into the wild and fast-paced nature of it all.

An idea we typically give to our clients is organizing an itinerary where you split the city is sections. The day you’re going to explore Central Park, you might just want to stick around the Upper East and Upper West Sides and enjoy everything in that area. The day you go to SoHo, you’ll get a chance to explore Lower Manhattan.

Don’t jump around too much. Commuting in New York City is easy, but can take some time.

Trains can be delayed and packed, especially during rush hours. Plus, exploring NYC by foot is so much better and more exciting! So, stick to the area you picked and create an itinerary around it.

If you’re the adventurous type, which most likely you are if you’re on our website, and want to explore more than only Manhattan, you might want to check out these 7 Best Places In Long Island City For Art Lovers.

Oh! To organize everything, you might want to by the best New York City Moleskine notebook. It contains the city map and spaces to write down your findings, organize the list of places you want to go, etc. And, it’s a pocket size, so don’t worry!


Look At The Area Beforehand

Curiosities Our Bucket Lists 3 Ways To Make Your Trip To NYC More Comfy Courtney Cook

If you know where you’re going during your trip to NYC, then you’re going to be a lot more comfortable.

Nobody likes heading out into a perilous environment. While NYC will give you all the signs telling you where you are able to go, it can still confuse you if you’re a little new to this way of living.

Before evening embarking on your travels, you should hop online and look at a map of the area.

A map is obviously nothing like the real thing, but it can give you a small idea and can put your mind at ease. For example, if you’re an influencer looking to sit down in a comfortable coffee shop or library, then you might want to check out where the best places are.

Many people like heading out into the unknown, but it’s not the wisest thing to do if you’re a little uneasy about the whole thing.

Need help? One of our Series called “16 Things NO ONE EVER Tells You About NYC“, you can check out PART 1/4 and read #4 Understanding New York’s Map, to help you out! Once you get this, you’ll feel like a true New Yorker!

If you’re in NYC for a short stay and have a lot of luggage to carry around, then you’re going to be in a bit of trouble physically, aren’t you?

Nobody likes hauling lots of things around. And, it’s especially annoying when you’re around so many others in a crowded city like New York, right?

Fortunately, you can find places like Stasher, who will be able to take your belongings off you for a short while so you can walk around freely and unencumbered.

St. Patricks Cathedral

One of the most famous Cathedrals in the world is nestled right in the heart of Manhattan, on 5th Avenue! St. Patricks Cathedral is a neo-gothic Catholic cathedral dating back to 1879.

“The story of New York’s great cathedral mirrors the story of the city itself. Created to affirm the ascendance of religious freedom and tolerance, St. Patrick’s Cathedral was built in the democratic spirit, paid for not only by the contributions of thousands of poor immigrants but also by the largesse of 103 prominent citizens who pledged $1,000 each.

St. Patrick’s Cathedral proves the maxim that no generation builds a cathedral. It is rather, a kind of ongoing conversation linking generations past, present and future.” ~ St. Patrick’s Cathedral.

Rockefeller Center

Maybe one of the first places people ask to visit when they come to New York City, is the Rockefeller Center. In our opinion the Top of the Rock has the best observatory in the city. Why? Well, you’ll have a 360º view where you can spot the Statue of Liberty looking South, as well as gaze at the see of trees at Central Park, to the North. And, of course, you can see New Jersey on one side and Brooklyn / Queens on the other.

Also, the Rockefeller Center is the home of New York’s famous Christmas Tree that people anxiously wait for every year! It’s truly a beauty and kicks off the holiday season in style, once the tree is lit up!

Oh, and it’s part of our post: 10 Top Secrets Of New York City That You Probably Don’t Know! There’s always a little secret behind these famous attractions, so go take a look!

Radio City Music Hall

Completed and open to the public in December 27th, 1932, Radio City Music Hall is an important piece in New York’s entertainment history.

“More than 300 million people have come to the Music Hall to enjoy stage shows, movies, concerts and special events. There’s no place like it to see a show or stage a show. Everything about it is larger than life. Radio City Music Hall is the largest indoor theatre in the world.

The popular movie-and-stage-show format remained a Radio City signature until 1979, when the mass showcasing of new films called for a new focus. Today, the Music Hall still premieres selected films, but is best known as the country’s leading hall for popular concerts, stage shows, special attractions and media events.” ~ MSG

Did you know that 5th Avenue starts at the North end of Washington Square Park and stretches all the way up to West 143rd Street, in Harlem? It’s quite a stretch, right?

But, many people crave the walk up and down 5th Avenue starting at 59th Street, where The Plaza Hotel and the iconic Apple’s Fifth Avenue “Cube” store are located – and heading South!

The biggest retailers in the world from the top luxury brands like Harry Winston, Bulgari and Valentino, to more accessible fashion brands like Gap, Nike and Uniqlo are spread throughout the blocks. Now, the streets are as silent as you can imagine.

East Village

The East Village is certainly one of our favorite neighborhood in Manhattan. It’s the home of countless fantastic local businesses, while still not attracting a huge touristy crowd. Good for us! While tourists are crazy exploring and fighting their way through Times Square and Midtown, the more niche tourists are uncovering the beauties of this neighborhood.

It’s also the home of some pretty amazing graffiti works, like this one called Black or White (featuring Michael Jackson) – on 180 1st Avenue. The artist is the world-known Brazilian artist, Kobra. New York currently has a total of 19 murals by Kobra spread throughout Manhattan and Brooklyn.

Bryant Park

New York City has so many amazing, and well cared for parks, but Bryant Park has something special. It’s located between West 40th and West 42nd Streets, and 6th and 5th Avenue.

Even though it’s literally steps from Times Square, it has a totally different vibe. It’s also the home of one of our favorite “getaways” in the City: the New York Public Library. We do tend to go a lot there and just chill for a few hours in The Rose Main Reading Room.

During the warmer months, the park hosts open air movie sessions on their lawn, and in the winter, they have a skiing rink with great vendors in their Holiday Shops, selling winter apparel and delicious hot chocolates.

DUMBO

Many people don’t know that DUMBO is actually short for: Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass. It’s on the very tip of Brooklyn, right on the East River.

This area has immensely grown not only with businesses like Burrow and Foragers City Grocer, but with new high-end residential renovated apartments and modern office spaces. Yes, rent there is crazy expensive and a 1-bedroom can cost over $4,000/month in rent. Only in New York City, right?

In addition, one our favorite hotels, the 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge, is just “around the corner”.

This view you see in the picture above is one of the most sought-after corners that not only tourists, but influencers and photographers come to shoot. It’s the intersection of Washington Street and Water Street, in case you’re curious.


New York is a strong city, and New Yorkers are one of the most resilient people on this Earth.

That said, we know that we’re passing through really, really tough times. The world is changing, we are surely changing and we CAN’T go back to normal….after all the normal was not working!

Together, we are stronger and we will get out of this with more clarity and hopefully the whole of humanity will come out of this with more compassion, empathy and love for each other!

Stay safe, guys! Stay strong!
