New York City. the lights , the music, the fashion, the food – all encapsulates the beauty of the city
I’ll be honest: The truth is, there’s no way to explore all of New York within 3 days. From the exhilarating and lively Times Square to the enchanting prestigious Upper East side, even the streets in between can already takes days for you to explore. But there are definitely a few go to spots that I have to mention.
Since the start of this blog, learning and exploring my fashion style has always been something that grounds me. “True beauty shines when you focus on the style that you love!” and if you’ve never been to the big apple, even being there for a couple of days has made the fashion vibes feel more real than ever. From every corner you can see a diversity of fashion aesthetics – from streetwear to vintage, to chic looks it just all shows how much NYC loves fashion but in particular in the streets of Fifth Avenue, Soho and Madison!
64 W 48th St, New York
Just a two minute walk from the well known top of the rock, comes a bar & restaurant that serves delicious warm food ranging from roast beef sandwiches to burgers to homemade cream soup. The outdoor atmosphere captures all of New York’s street vibes and the french onion soup burger served with fries ( image below) is what you would want to get for lunch / dinner.
5TH AVENUE: THE MET & CENTRAL PARK
This street is perfect for you if you enjoy anything related to arts, museums, outdoors scenery! ( Central Park), shops or more towards the luxury vibes. I also love it here as there are way too many iconic Gossip Girl scenes @themetsteps but it also gave me a chance to dress up to another style of mine that I love. ( winter/ spring fashion fits)
Heading to lower Manhattan is where Soho district is at. This part of New York has a ton of trendy vibes, art galleries, architectures and stores . Soho gives off amazing street wear / street style vibes and has one of the best coffee stores. If I had more time, I do wish to explore around some of the hidden parts of this area.
QUICK SNACKS ❤
My all time favourite dessert place! there’s a collection of Funfetti layered cakes, ice cream with cereal crunch, cake truffles pies and more! unfortunately, due to COVID quite a number of stores are temporarily closed, but the one near Soho is currently open!
If you head to West Village, you’ve got to head over to this restaurant ( photo on the right) where they serve scrumptious cheesy garlic sticks , pizzas and burgers!
NYC’s most famous cookies!
How to stay safe when travelling during the pandemic
It can be quite different and hard to travel during the midst of the pandemic, but as I was just 4 hours away from New York city, my friends and I decided to take a train. Just a reminder to wear a mask whenever you’re out, follow the social distancing rules and to always have good personal hygiene.
*also there are a ton of more amazing areas but these are just some of my top highlights from the trip
