New York is undoubtedly one of the most iconic cities in the world. So diverse, fast-paced, chaotically cultured and so modern yet old world at the same time.
While it may seem counterintuitive to backtrack to my November trip, I figured it’s best to reflect in order to move forward to 2018. Shall we?
Here’s 10 Reasons Why New York Never Gets Old:
1. The City That Never Sleeps
You don’t say… (cue eye roll).
If you’re a nocturnal freak like me who thrives when the sun sets, you get it. There’s so much to do at night in New York other than hitting a club.
Just walking the streets alone, you’re never alone: literally and figuratively.
“I love New York… you’re never alone but always on your own.”
~ Blaire Waldorf (Gossip Girl)
2. Celebrity Sightings
Yes I know it may be totally uncool to lose your shit when bumping into a celebrity in the chic or could-care-less streets of New York. However, for as long as you do it with finesse, respect and leave your screaming for later, you just might win them over and take you by surprise.
Even my family couldn’t keep themselves from sharing their excitement by videobombing me while I was recording for the episode, haha! Watch cuz I got proof!
For starters, the Hollywood movie starring utterly hilarious Jack Black already won me over. The Broadway musical is so damn phenomenal that my whole family along with the audience sang, danced and cried without a dull moment!
However, amongst the five, School of Rock is by far my favorite one! All the original tracks from the movie are in the play which makes you sing along from start to finish!
4. Fashion Feast
New York is home to the fiercest fashion in the world from street style of everyday New Yorkers to seeing exhibits dedicated for the love of it.
The Louis Vuitton: Volez, Voguez, Voyagez, an exhibit that showcases all forms of luxury travel from its beginnings to its powerhouse collaborations and ultimately the brand we all know of today.
Such an impressive collection that is serious travel baggage goals and of course, all the red carpet gowns worn all through out history from Old Hollywood to young stars of today like Alicia Vikander.
Of course what better way to market your product than to make it free admission but sadly it only ran until December.
5. Grab A Bite
Anytime of the day or night, you will always find awesome places to grab a bite in New York City.
Carmine’s is probably one of the best hearty Italian meals I’ve had in LIFE, lol. The shrimp parmigiana, giant stuffed artichokes and seafood linguini were insanely delicious!
