New York Skyline From Governor’s Island

Governor’s Island is just yards away from downtown Manhattan. The island, however, doesn’t have people in residence. In fact, it’s only open to the public from May 1 – October 31. What to do at Governor’s Island During the summer, there are arts festivals, concerts, performances and guided tours. You

Top 5 Neighborhoods in New York Close to the Action

New York doesn’t need an introduction: a city that never sleeps, it’s considered one of the most exciting destinations in the world. But where to stay in New York? Here are five neighborhoods that will place you right in the middle of the action. Get Artsy in Chelsea Are you an

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,

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

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! And of

Strolling at Little Italy in New York

Visiting New York? Don’t miss the city’s Little Italy. Though the Italians have long gone and moved to different neighbourhoods, it’s still vibrant and alive with everything Italian. Going for a stroll around the area will reward you with something nice, quaint and lovely. Little Italy isn’t just historic but

The best time to visit 911 Memorial in New York

The only place in New York City where taking a selfie with a smile on your face is absurd (or frowned upon by me) is the 9/11 Memorial, former site of the city’s World Trade Center Twin Towers. For a solemn visit, I think the best time to visit 911

New York Skyline at Night from Brooklyn Heights

Because I couldn’t survive the freezing temperature during the New Year’s Eve Ball Countdown at Times Square, I had to get out of the block where I was standing. My feet were numb and my cheeks were red. I thought¬†I was fully cloth and prepared for the temperature that night

25 Photos of Central Park in Snow

Before I left New York, I had the chance to visit its Central Park one early morning on snowy day. I intended to really go early (Is 8 a.m. early to you?) because the weather forecast that day said it’s gonna be snowing only from 6-10. When I arrived there,
