The 53rd annual Hispanic Day Parade was today! I always LOVE watching it every year in New York City, marching up Fifth Ave with the floats. Traditional costumes, music and dancing, along with the color of it all! About 2.5 million of us New Yorkers are of Hispanic heritage, they consist of: Argentine, Bolivian, Chilean, Costa Rican, Cuban, Dominican, Ecuadorian, Guatemalan, Honduran, Mexican, Nicaraguan, Panamanian, Paraguayan, Peruvian, Puerto Rican, Salvadoran, Spanish, Uruguayan and Venezuelan.

It’s officially FALL, but you wouldn’t know it yet in NYC. An evening walk over the Triborough Bridge and back was just the perfect way to end a day. The sky changed from orange to smokey blues and then into evening. The breeze was warm and kids were still out playing baseball in the park. This is the best time of year in NYC.

It’s the end of Summer. Goodbye Summer 17

This Summer was a transitional period for me personally. I had a lot of changes going on in my life. Some things started, some things ended, some things were good, some not so good. (Ch, ch, ch, changes…) It definitely was a Summer I will remember.

Anyway, I did get out to Coney Island in Brooklyn last week again, before the beach closed and we head into the Fall season. To my delight, there was a Car Show going on and it was very cool! Had to quickly finish my double scoop ice cream to take these pics, so I hope you enjoy them!

Long Island City, New York (LIC) ……where city meets the urban neighborhoods, where luxury high rises are “somewhat” more affordable than Manhattan prices and where you get killer views of the city. Amazing diners, food, graffiti, art studios,  fantastic water views, restaurants, and the bustling city life…..oh, and ONE stop from Manhattan!

downtown in chinatown…..new york city

you know, it’s so easy not to travel anywhere when you live in NYC….because you already have some many different worlds and cultures outside your front door! I love going downtown to Chinatown……it’s just so different than the rest of NYC. It’s still the hustle and bustle of the city, but the sounds, smells and sights are a mix of cultures merging. If you want to find a great Green tea (go here) or a yummy Boba Tai Tea (try here) or some great rice and noodles….this is the place!
