Reasons Why #iloveny

Out of all the places I have traveled to so far, the most time I’ve spent in is Manhattan in New York City, totalling around 2.5 weeks. Yes, this place is so expensive to visit. Ridiculously expensive. And yet, putting cost aside, New York has so much to offer, that I think anyone can have a fun time in this city.

In the words of Taylor Swift: Walking through a crowd // The village is aglow // Kaleidoscope of loud heartbeats // Under coats // Everybody here wanted something more // Searching for a sound we hadn’t heard before // And it said // Welcome to New York // It’s been waiting for you.

Here’s a growing list of reasons why #iloveny:

  1. Necessities are always just within a few blocks away
  2. Subways = no traffic
  3. The fast-paced energy
  4. Three CHANEL boutiques within a 10-mile radius
  5. Shopping Mecca of the United States
  6. Old-school skyscrapers
  7. Gridded streets mean never getting totally lost
  8. Central Park. ’nuff said.
  9. Cornucopia of delectable food
  10. Street vendors selling nuts
  11. Steam billowing out of the streets from the underground
  12. Brick roads and townhouses
  13. Yellow Taxi Cabs
  14. Broadway Plays
  15. Breakfast at Tiffany’s
  16. Humans of New York
  17. NYFW
  18. No such thing as jaywalking
  19. Fashionable New Yorkers
  20. Fast-walk or GTFO
  21. Home of the original cronut
  22. Doormen in cool uniforms

I don’t know when I’ll be visiting the Big Apple again, as there is so many other places that I have yet to explore. But if I had my way, I would be a bi-coastal person: living in both Los Angeles (in the “colder” weather) and New York (in the warmer weather).

Ah, daydreaming is always a nice activity.

    For some odd reason, I totally enjoy reading about why people love NYC! I’m from New Jersey so the city is a few minutes away. Maybe it’s because I grew up around the city, but New York is my favorite. I’ve been to LA and I love it and I plan on moving out there in a few years but there is just nothing like New York. My favorite part is in the fall and winter, when the all of the parades and Christmas decorations are up. I also love that New York feeling you get when you listen to Frank Sinatra.

    Great post though! Thank you for sharing!

      Thanks for your comment, Nicole. I can totally understand where you’re coming from. There’s nothing like the neighborhood you grew up in. I would love to visit New York in the Christmastime, and I hope to experience just what you described! Eep!

    I would definitely like to live in New York for a while too!
    Such an exciting city, full of so much energy. I’ve always flirted with the idea of going back since my last trip…I guess it is simply impossible to get tired of it! :) Great post Deasy!
