City Guides: Upper West Side

The Upper West Side is definitely one of New York City’s greatest gems, and one of our favorite areas to explore. There is just so much to see and do (not to mention to eat!) No matter your age, I can guarantee you will find something that suits your fancy in this neighborhood. With the Hudson River on one side, Central Park on the other, and Lincoln Center in between, well, I don’t really know how a location can get much better!

City Guides: Union Square / Midtown

To describe how much I adore both Union Square and Midtown, well that’s certainly a hard task! So many delicious eateries, on every corner. So many shops to explore (even if it is only to look!) So many coffee shops. So many happy hours. And don’t worry about walking too much. You can just prop your feet up, and take your time simply relaxing in Madison Square Park…all while taking in the iconic Flatiron Building of course! But enough of me yapping…check out all of our favorite places.

City Guides: Prospect Heights

Prospect Heights is such a fun and vibrant neighborhood in Brooklyn. And one we visit quite often! This up-and-coming area houses so many fun activities and so many of our favorite places to eat! Not to mention the location couldn’t be better if you are a sucker for green spaces. Walk a couple of blocks and your eyes will gaze upon the openness of Prospect Park!While we enjoy this location mostly in the summer — because of the countless things to do outdoors – every so often we make the walk from Park Slope just to become mesmerized by all the beautiful Brooklyn brownstones.

City Guides: Dumbo

In case you’re wondering, Dumbo is an acronym that stands for Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass. This area is by far one of our favorites in all of New York City — Partly due to the incredible skyline action this neighborhood has got going on. Whether day or night, the view of the financial district across the river is absolutely breathtaking. Not to mention there is just so much to do in this area. And the best part of all, so much of it is free! All it requires is a little walking, which when you have a view like the NYC skyline in your peripheral vision, how can you complain?

City Guides: Park Slope / Carroll Gardens

Park Slope. Not only is this place close to our hearts because it’s now the place we call home, but it also has some of our favorite spots in all of NYC! Since Carroll Gardens is so close, and there’s a ton of cool stuff to do there as well, I figured I’d compile the list with both neighborhoods!
