Today, we discuss the city so nice that they had to name it twice! We’re talking about the fabulous New York City! Join us as we tackle where to stay, what do to, and what to see in the city that never sleeps!
What is New York City?
This fixture in our cinematic history is in the United States. It is the apex of American culture. It is where commerce, finance, media, art, fashion, and so many others were built and grew into the institutions it is today.
Why visit this place?
It’s a full celebration of everything that humanity has accomplished. You want to taste different cultures? New York has a plethora of “little” boroughs—communities of immigrants that brought their cultures with them. This means a variety of food, check out the catering in New York and what they offer, wares, textiles, and so many others. To give you a better idea of why New York is somewhere you’d want to be, let’s break down the reasons why!
Food from all over the world
We’re not kidding about this one. If you’ve got a hankering for Chinese, Japanese, Mediterranean, Kosher, etc you’ll never find yourself wanting in New York. With a lot of food places that cater to patrons 24/7, you’ll always have options. If going out at 2:30 in the morning isn’t exactly your cup of tea, you can order in. As Blair Waldorf once said, “We can survive on take-out for months and never have to order the same thing twice.”
The food in the heart of the city differs from the food in the boroughs and other parts of the city. So you can let your taste buds run wild with the options.
New York is the place for both high-end and lowbrow fashion finds. Labels like to call New York as their home. Why wouldn’t they? The sheer number of guests and wealthy locals keep the specialized industry alive and well. Not to mention that if you time your trip just right and you get suitable invites, you can even see New York Fashion Week!
Skyscrapers are the usual sight in New York. Most buildings allow tourists to go to the top floor or their viewing deck to enjoy the sights of the New York skyline. New York City also has several bridges that are worth seeing. The Brooklyn footbridge makes for a good walk and you can simultaneously get a good view of the city from afar.
Crash course in American culture
If you’ve ever wanted to watch Americans at their best (and worst), the Big Apple is where you go. Get your fill of crazy cabs, funny locals, snooty upper East and West people, and many of the curious tourists just like yourself.
A trip to New York is never something that anyone regrets even if the trip has some mishaps. The mere act of being in the Times Square is a feat in itself. If you’ve ever been there and got some tips to share, send us a message and we’d love to incorporate your thoughts for future discussions.
