New York, New York.....it's a wonderful town!
Tonight's post is all about New York. There's tons of wonderful travel books and websites recommending great places to go and things to do. Personally, I'm a big fan of checking out blogger recommendations and Instagram as they feel more real and current. All of the places I'm recommending are places I've discovered on my own trips and loved. Last Spring I worked out there for a whole month and after a few weeks I felt like somewhat of a native and started to discover places that New Yorkers love....those little hidden gems.
New York is a magical, wonderful city. I love that every time I go back I find something new to check out - it's truly progressive and massively exciting. In terms of areas, everyone will head to Manhattan and it's a great district. I particularly like Downtown Soho and Greenwich Village but enjoyed wandering around the Upper East Side then meandering down 5th Avenue. Last time I was in the city friends introduced me to Williamsburg in Brooklyn which I loved. Williamsburg felt so chilled and lovely, filled with gorgeous independent bars, cafes and amazing one-off boutiques. I've found some of the places below just by wandering.
