Let’s start with a classic shall we? Yes, Yellow Taxis are probably one the most iconic thing that screams NY!
The moment you “catch a Cab, whether you have a friendly chat with the taxidriver, or just take sometime to enjoy the scenary running from the back window… I just can help but feel so exited and happy!!!

Yes, as much as I enjoy the confort of rambling around the city like Carrie Bradshaw on a cab, 90 % of the time I take the subway… and I love it !!! Is probably the fastest, yet simple and efficent way to travel!
What I really like about this “under city ” are the stops titles, usually NY subways stations are decorated with colorful ceramic plaques and tile mosaics. They have kind of an old precious vibe … is just someting so charming and conforting… while waiting for the train to arrive I often found myself starring at them with a smile on my face!!imagining the stories behind them….

Yes, you got me! I am totally that persons who stares at dogs… and probably bothers strangers just to talk for a seconds with their dogs!
In NY you may see everykind of dog and everykind of human… and it always makes me smile how they both resembles each other! 🙂

  1. Well…I wouldn’t know where to begin, so many. But you gave me an idea for an article, maybe I’m gonna write one. I can tell you my favourite spot though..I love Bryant Park:)


    1. I get it, Bryant Park is definitely a classic for NY! I myself am a big fan of NY Pubblic Library which is exactly there, I believe! 🙂
