Guide to New York City

New York City is one of my favorite places in the world. There are so many interesting people, gorgeous shops and parks, and plenty of amazing restaurants. My grandparents first took me when I was 10 years old, and now my sisters and I have a tradition to go annually. Throughout the year, I keep a running list of places I want to try, usually based on what I see on Instagram. Below are my recommendations for our favorite places to explore, shop, and most importantly, eat!

(For documentation sake, yes, I do have a fourth sister! Sophia and my mom both aren’t crazy about NYC so Helena, Isabel, and I are the ones who usually go with my dad!)
