A Few of My Favorite Places in NYC
Yes, sometimes NYC could be boring when you've lived in it for your whole life. However, some places are always a treat, if you don't overdo it, of course.
- •The Chelsea GalleriesIf you're a broke college student and have a taste for art, consider going to these free galleries located on the W20 streets along 10th avenue. Ranging from the occasional Flavin neon installments to synthetic palms trees, this area of New York will surely make your Instagram feed a little more fire. 🔥
- •Brooklyn HeightsTake the A/C train to High Street, and walk along Cranberry Street. This neighborhood is made up of brownstone houses, small gardens, and leafy streets. While you're at it, go to Brooklyn Bridge Park and view Manhattan from a different perspective. 🌆
- •Union Square Park (During the Holiday Season)Is it the end of the year approaching? If it is, chances are that the holiday market is at Union Square. Local stores from each borough make their way here. Human sized puppets, ties, hats, toys, jewelry, scented candles, and of course food is sold here. My favorite thing about this is probably the environment. Everybody is in good spirit. (Just kidding, that's my second favorite thing. My favorite thing has to be the aroma of the candles.) 👃
- •Continental Avenue (Forest Hills)This is as suburban as you can possibly get when still being in NYC. Take a walk and you will be in such a peaceful place, one far away from the busy streets in New York City. Don't think that's enough? Keep walking along Continental and you'll end up in Forest Park. Two pieces of advice: 1) Bring bug repellent if you're going in the summer. 2) Make sure you leave a trail so you know your way back. (There's no cellphone service). 🏡
- •The High LineHow cool is it to walk on a continuous elevated path that is filled with trees? The high line allows you observe art, enjoy the sun, feel the breeze coming from the Hudson, walk on abandoned train tracks, and sit above the busy 10th avenue. 🌥
