Photo of the Day: Bleecker Street, home of très expensive and, often, très French shopping. No matter where I go, I tend to find French influences. Unfortunately for me, the “French” things on Bleecker Street (Caudalie, Maje, and Annick Goutal to name a few) are all wayyyy beyond my price range. However, it’s a gorgeous place to stroll and window shop and, of course, take pictures! It feels so good to have reclaimed my “traveler” mindset in a place that is currently home. I’m excited to start my posts back up again, and to let you know I’ll be blogging about NYC from time to time (link in bio)! Paris has my heart, but NYC has my body for the time being, so in true traveler fashion, it’s in my nature to explore, explore, explore! 🏙

Tip of the Day: Despite the “helpful” grid layout, NYC can be darn confusing. Boroughs and neighborhoods and neighborhoods of neighborhoods, plus the whole of Manhattan (that’s a borough) is an island... it’s hard to know where to go. The amazing thing about NYC is that all of these categorizations have meaning; they aren’t just arbitrary divisions. This part of Bleecker Street is in the West Village, which is in Greenwich Village, which is sort of the “lower West side,” which is in Manhattan... needless to say, when visiting NYC, you might get VERY confused on where you are or where people are referring to. Frankly, I’m still confused. My advice is to use a map, but don’t rely entirely on its labeling, and just ask questions. New Yorkers are frank, but you’ll get an answer. And don’t get bogged down with names and neighborhoods and borders... just head for an area and explore.
