As a Long Island-native, I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to create a NYC vlog!
I grew up right outside of Manhattan, but have never taken the time to vlog about it.
Well, that all changed during my last trip to Long Island.
I spent a day in the city to meet up with my best friend from high school, and I spontaneously decided to make a vlog while walking from Penn Station to the West Village.
While there is so much to love about NYC, I slimmed it down to just three things!
The Top 3 Things I Love About Manhattan:
Let’s start with the obvious first thing to love: the diversity.
New York City is one of the most diverse cities in the world.
Take a walk down any street in Manhattan, and you will see diversity in buildings, ages, ethnicities, sexual orientations, architecture, fashion, food, and arts.
Regardless of what you’re looking for, you’ll find it. Not only that, you’ll have a plethora of options to pick from.
There is diversity in literally every facet of the word.
The second thing I love about New York is how easy it is to navigate your way around the city.
The city is on a grid system which makes it very easy to map your way around the streets.
Not to mention, with the prevalence of taxis, Uber, Lyft and the massive subway system that Manhattan has, it’s very easy to get from one part of the city to the other.
Manhattan is surprisingly walkable, too!
I walked from Penn Station into the heart of the West Village in just 25 minutes.
The third, and probably biggest, thing that I love about NYC is how gluten-free friendly it is!
There are so many gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan-friendly restaurants in Manhattan.
Whenever I come to the city for a bite to eat, I have so many options to pick from. It’s a really nice problem to have as someone with Celiac.
The Butcher’s Daughter is definitely one of those amazing, gluten-free friendly spots.
Any city that accommodates to a gluten-free diet is a city that I’m drawn to.
It’s so nice to have the stress of going out to eat taken away, and that only comes when you’re in a city that is large (and aware) enough of different dietary restrictions.
