Stonewall 50: World Pride Parade in NYC

The World Pride Parade in NYC last Sunday was marred with long gaps in between participating teams, sponsors, organizations, floats, etc. Gaps were so long that it bored the ones watching the parade, including us. It was a beautiful day, and at some point, it started to shower a bit,

Do You Know What I Did Last Summer?

Do you know what I did last summer? It’s the best summer I’ve ever had and I don’t know if I could top that ever again. Here are the stats: 4 continents, 8 countries, 21 cities, 11 flights, some bottles of wines and sangrias, and a handful of people I’ve

The Proud One World Trade Center

I was a surprised that there were only few people / tourists on the streets of New York City on July 4th. It’s not the scene of New York that I am used to. A friend and I walked around Tribeca and other touristy spots but we were relieved to

What’s Inside the 911 Memorial and Museum in New York

I finally made it to the 911 Memorial and Museum in New York last July 4th weekend. I had two chances to visit this place before but I didn’t want to do it alone. Then, last weekend, a friend was free and we went there together. Visiting the 911 Memorial

The Last Column of the Twin Towers

They call this as The Last Column of the Twin Towers. It is called so because it was the last column standing that was removed from the Ground Zero, where the Twin Towers used to stand tall and proud. When the workers and rescuers pulled it out from the ground,

Coney Island Murals

One of the things I did when I went to New York last weekend was to visit Coney Island with a friend for the first time. I’ve been going to the City that Never Sleeps in and out since 2011 but I’ve never visited this amusement park by the beach.

Graffiti Tour in Brooklyn

You can find grafitti anywhere in New York. But not so much in Manhattan, at least to places I’ve walked by. If you go to other boroughs, like Brooklyn, Queens and bronx, grafitti (or street art or murals as they say) is everywhere. From abandoned buildings to bridges to empty

New York Skyline at Night

New York skyline is, I must admit, more beautiful at night. However, I’d advise anyone to see New York from above both during the day and at night. While you’ll be seeing the same cityscape in different times of the day, New York turns magical at night. That’s when you

View of New York Skyline from the Empire State Building

I’m not really impressed with the view of New York skyline from the Empire State Building. I like the view from the Rockefeller Center way better. Aside from the view, the queue management in Rockefeller Center is also much better than the one in the Empire State Building. On your

This is New York’s Most Beautiful Art Deco Building

There is no doubt that Chrysler Building is New York’s most beautiful art deco building. It’s gorgeous on a beautiful azure and it’s stunning at night, shining like a diamond in the city that never sleeps. New York City is dubbed as the world’s capital of art deco architecture—and the

What’s inside the Museum of Sex in New York

Museum of Sex in New York is the second one of its kind I’ve been to—and I’m not impressed. If you’ve never been to one, then, this one is okay–as a start. There’s nothing there that shocked me. I thought I’d learn something shocking but unfortunately, I wasn’t. LOL… To

See the world through Bushwick Collective Murals

There’s a place in Brooklyn where you can see the world through Bushwick Collective murals. Artists from around the world came to share their art, for the love of art. From Australia to France; from Italy to the Philippines, muralists come to share the vision of the Bushwick Collective. You

What to expect in Soho New York

Soho New York is synonymous to branded little shops. Or equally synonymous to cobblestoned streets, too. Or more famously synonymous to [easyazon_link asin=”B00H8KC1OS” locale=”US” new_window=”yes” nofollow=”default” tag=”pridecostume-20″ add_to_cart=”default” cloaking=”default” localization=”default” popups=”yes”]Sex and the City (SATC)[/easyazon_link], a TV show that mentioned the neighbourhood—almost in every episode for five years!
