My recent trip to New York was absolutely incredible! I have wanted to visit New York for years, and I am so happy that it finally happened! The first couple of days I felt like we were on a movie set, it didn't feel real! The city is huge, I mean, I knew it was big, but it turned out to be enormous, and everything that comes with it is twice as big: streets, roads, buildings, cars, food portions – everything! However, a few days in and I really started to enjoy the vibe the city has got! The diversity of it is amazing, everyone one is so open, friendly and helpful and 'oh boy' - this city has a lot to offer! You name it, they have it!
Slightly overwhelmed with the choice we decided to follow a number of recommendations from our friends. We visited so many incredible places; including numerous galleries, markets, design stores, NYxDesign week events, rooftop bars (obviously), restaurants, explored different neighbourhoods, met so many amazing people! We really tried to cover as much as possible! So, I wanted to write this post and share a few of the highlights from the trip and hopefully, this can be added to your 'New York TO DO' list.
Taking about art - New Yorker has so much art on offer and we made sure to cover a lot of it! We visited not only iconic places like MOMA and Guggenheim but also did a ‘Weekend Wonder’ walk in Chelsea, visited Industry City in Brooklyn and discovered a couple of great galleries along the way. Overload of art in New York didn’t stop us from going upstate New York to the cutes town called Cold Spring to visit Magazzino, a gallery of contemporary Italian art, which only opened a year ago!
All of these amazing galleries will be added to ‘Weekend Wonder’ series with more details and photographs!
For now, I wanted to share a few pictures of this incredible city and My Google Map with the places that we visited.
However, I feel like we just scratched the surface of it! Which only means one thing - I can plan many more happy returns to the Big Apple!
