10 Things I Love About New York

I spent the 4th of July in New York and the past few days have been amazing. As a recent resident of North Carolina, New York will always be my home.  It is absolutely hands down one of the best cities on earth to live in.  If by some anomaly you have never been to New York before you are truly missing out and must plan a trip ASAP.  With that said, I thought it would be fun to highlight the top 10 things I personally love about New York.

  1. EVERYTHING is for sale.  There is absolutely nothing you cannot buy in NY.  If New York does not have it then it does not exist lol.
  2. THE CITY NEVER SLEEPS- there is always something to do at any given time.  Parties, beaches, lounges, restaurants, boutiques, bookstores, bars, parks, theatres, coffee shops, pool halls, free concerts, museum parties, tea lounges etc.  You are only bored in NY if you choose to be, because the options are endless.
  3. ITS THE BEST PLACE FOR FASHION- If you are like me and love to have new looks but need ideas, you can always find them in New York.  Whether its 5th ave, the Village or Harlem etc, everyone makes a statement in how they dress; and, on any given day you will see some of the best and worst displays of fashion.
  4. PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION-  The subway runs 24 hrs, and the trains are always filled with people coming and going.  Yellow taxies also run all night as well as buses.  I love the fact that you can get around at any hour without actually NEEDING a car.
  5. THE STREETS WILL MAKE OR BREAK YOU.  New York will toughen you up, make you street smart, yet still leave you with a little bit of a heart.  The cab drivers are crazy, there are homeless people every where but the truth is, if you pay attention and learn quickly you will never  ever be a sucker in life.
  6. IT NEVER GETS BORING- There is always something new. No matter how long you have lived in New York there is always a new sight to see or a new place to go.  A new restaurant, a new stadium, a new island, a new park, there is always something that you have not seen yet.
  7. OPPORTUNITIES ARE ENDLESS- If you desire to be a singer, a actor, a rapper, a artist, a musician, a writer, a entrepreneur, a designer etc, New York is the place to be. I can't explain WHY but I can tell you that New York is where dreams are made.
  8. BROADWAY- Whether its a play, a musical, the ballet, the symphony or he Rockettes, the shows on Broadway cannot be beat!  Even if you can find the same show playing at your local theater, New York gives it a different touch of elegance. Celebrities show up, red carpets are laid and who knows, depending on the show it is possible the First Lady could very well be in attendance.
  9. THE BROWNSTONES AND LOFTS-  To sum it up simply, think of Carrie's Bradshaw's brownstone with the beautiful hardwood floors ,and double door bathroom on that quaint little street.  Now think of the upscale, luxurious, fabulous lofts you have seen on shows like Gossip Girl. The brownstones and lofts in New York are amazing.
  10. ITS LIKE ONE BIG PARTY- No matter what you do its fun! Solo or with a group, even if you are simply laughing at a crazy person, New York is a party within itself.  Everything is an event to remember and the air is just filled with spontaneity, excitement and opportunity. The party never stops.
The phrase "I Love New York" did not come from nowhere.  There are so many reasons to love New York if I haven't convinced you, go see for yourself.

For my New York natives and re-locators, what are some of the things you love about New York?

  1. I love being able to get my hair done for $15-20 every week at the Dominican salons. When i lived in MD i couldnt go that often cuz it was just too expensive - plus those stylists will have you in their ALL day waiting to get in the chair. *smh* At my Dominican salon Im in and out within 2 hours max. Love it.
