NYC, DUMBO, Brooklyn, SoHo, UWS, West Village Travel Tips: Neighborhood Walks, Hidden Gems, Street Art, Architecture, Rooftop Views, Photo Locations, Restaurants, Bars

New York City is a place I hold very near and dear to me. I spent 2 years there in the Upper West Side and experienced some incredible NYC moments there. My first and only photography class took place in Central Park and it was that class where I ran into Woody Allen (the look on his face seeing 25+ photographers armed big cameras was priceless).

NYC has so much to offer including architecture, beautiful street art, quirky fixtures, beautiful alleys, expansive city skyline views, fantastic breweries, salsa dancing and everything in between. Here is my guide to explore some of the best of what New York has to offer locals and tourists alike. Check out my other travel guides and follow me on Instagram for travel updates as well as new places to explore. Favorite neighborhoods to visit on my trips to New York: West Village, Upper West Side, Central Park, SoHo, Battery Park, Brooklyn and Bushwick.
