Hello Big Apple! How lovely you are in the summertime, even the 99F temperatures and 80% humidity, doesn’t stop your streets from being alive with sundress clad New Yorkers, stroller pushing mom’s, and camera toting tourists. The city that never sleeps seems to embrace the motto more boldly this time of year.
This short series of posts (“I ❤ New York”) are an ode to New York City, however not that of the copper lady statue, Time Square lights, Central Park activities, or world-renowned museums. Having grown up outside of New York City from 6 years old to 19 years old, I have already been fortunate enough to see the sights of Central Park, Time Square, 5th Avenue, The Guggenheim, Greenwich Village, the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, the GW Bridge, the MOMA to simply name a few. Instead this is a tribute to the tastes and flavors that have originated from the 1.5 million people calling the island of Manhattan their home.
