New York, New York

New York City is like a translucid dream, somehow totally familiar and completely foreign at the same time; often reminiscent of a memory of something you’ve never experienced.

We’ve all seen it so many times before. In films and TV, magazines and music videos. In a way it’s as if we’ve all been to New York. But the reality of New York is far more fantastic than any fiction.

New York City is comprised of five boroughs: Manhattan, Brooklyn, The Bronx, Queens and Staten Island. All five boroughs are home to unique neighborhoods, with some of them feeling like miniature cities of their own, and all of them offering something of interest.

There’s the cool and classy Upper East Side, the grungy Lower East Side and Bowery, the bustling SoHo, the hipster chic areas of Williamsburg and Bushwick, Hell’s Kitchen and Harlem, Chelsea and the Meatpacking District, as well as ethnic neighborhoods from Little Italy and Chinatown to Koreatown and Little Guyana.

If it exists, you’ll find it in New York City.

rainy new york cityYou can plan a day in New York as much as you want, but the city will always surprise you. Sometimes pleasantly, sometimes not so much. But that’s one of the greatest gifts in life – not knowing what’s going to happen next, not knowing what adventures are waiting just around the corner. You just need to take those steps, get to the corner and be ready.

Because anything can happen.lower east side drag queen
