This summer, New York City has been gifted not one, but two Immersive Van Gogh exhibits! Maybe you saw the…
The Show-Me State. The home of the Cardinals. The middle of the the country. One of four neutral states in the Civil War. Lots of corn, cotton, cattle, and caves. Where both Noah and I were born and raised. Here are our top 10 regions and things to see in our home state of Missouri.
Neighborhoods are the most important aspect to consider when looking for a hotel in NYC. We’ve listed the top 10 that we would recommend here. These are great spots, generally safe, and have wonderful hotel options. Enjoy your trip!
Through my introduction into the world of sneakerheads, I’m learning to not be afraid to be “big.” Wear men’s shoes. Broaden your shoulders. Be loud. Take up space.
I’m not giving up my Christian Louboutins, but I’m definitely working on my street crew and confidence.
You with me?
I would welcome anyone: to listen to the stories of Edgar Allen Poe while sipping a drink at America’s oldest pub (The Horse You Came In On), to listen to jazz and enjoy local oysters at Keystone Korner, to sail around the Harbour with America’s Sailing Tours, to have a crab feast at L.P. Steamers, to see Fort McHenry where Francis Scott Key penned The Star Spangled Banner, to walk around Fells Point and get lost in the row houses and architecture, to watch a sunset at Canton Park… Then, tell me how Baltimore isn’t a city to love. Baltimore is “Charm City” and it lives up to its name.
I’m excited to come see shows at Little Island, while overlooking a sunset on the Hudson. I know that the build-out was controversial, but I’m thankful for donors like Diller who have dreams for the city and the funding to see them into fruition. I think that this idea was beautifully realized and will be a welcome addition to the ever-expanding west side of the city for many decades to come (or at least 20 years!).
Only open from Memorial Day to Labor Day, this ferry-only accessible island is New York’s summer playground – literally. It is 172 acres of gardens, lawns, rolling hills, recreation areas, playgrounds, and concessions. You could spend the day lounging in a hammock overlooking a garden of lavender and butterflies, or you could bring your friends out for a day-long championship of ultimate frisbee, or you could take a date and picnic on a lawn overlooking Manhattan, or you could geek out on American History by scouting out all of the historical plaques, buildings, and museums, or you could bring your family and slide down New York City’s longest slide (57 feet!), or you could simply hang out at the Island Oyster Bar and while the day away with cocktails and oysters. Whatever you decide to do, Governors Island is relaxing, rejuvenating, beautiful, picturesque, and loads of fun.
One of the coolest things about New York City is that everyone has the option to live out loud. You will see a wide variety of life – from hair colors to tattoos to piercings to bright colored clothes to monochromatic – everyone has their own unique style, and New Yorkers don’t judge.
Through my experiences, the city has become less and less formal as time has passed. In the early 2000s, you’d never see somebody on Madison Avenue in a track suit. But, times have changed, formalities have loosened, and COVID has created a whole new world of “normal.” People here are far more comfortable now than I’ve ever seen before.
That said, you can also wear your finest out to dinner anywhere in Manhattan, to grab brunch in Soho, or to get cocktails in Flatiron, and you’ll fit right in.
Holding 27 World Series Championship titles, the Yankees are the #1 winning franchise in all of US sports and are arguably the most famous sports franchise in the entire world. So, what’s it like to see the Yankees play at Yankee Stadium?
