Since I’ve been in New York I’ve written about change, food and fitness. I’ve written about some of the challenges I’ve experienced and some of the adventures I’ve taken. While all those things may still be true, I realized I haven’t shared all the little things I love about this place.
I’m linking up to Amanda today because this post is pure Thinking Out Loud.
What I Love About New York City
The variety of gluten-free restaurants. Just the food options in general are amazing.
Runner and biker friendly paths. Pedestrians rule the city.
You can walk everywhere. And I do.
The plethora of farmer’s markets and fruit stands.
No one is above using the subway (or at least they shouldn’t be). It’s the best and easiest form of transportation.
But, if you are above the subway or enjoy walking (like me), it’s super easy to get around. It’s laid out like a grid.
That you can be inside a store or apartment and completely forget you’re in the city until the moment you step outside. Best of both worlds??
The TODAY Show, Fallon and Kelly & Michael all film here. I’ve been to 2/3 of those shows.
That celebrities roam the streets and just blend in. See this evidence.
Friends took place here. Even though it wasn’t filmed here, it’s reason enough to love this place.
The shopping. I am NOT a shopper but even I have enjoyed going into stores and/or window shopping.
The concerts, award shows, sports games and major events that take place here.
Having everything you need be pretty much right around the corner.
The parks….Madison Square Park, Washington Square Park, Central Park as well as the smaller lesser-name parks in neighborhoods.
Central Park. Yes, again. It deserves its own line of recognition.
The entertaining, albeit weird, things you see on the streets.
The energy…it wakes you up. Cliche but true.
That everyday can be as routine OR adventurous as you want. The options are limitless.
I’m sure I’ll add to this list as the summer continues. No, life isn’t happy-go-lucky everyday and I still feel all those emotions I previously wrote about, but when those feelings arise I’m trying to return to this list and focus on the good.
