Regular visits to New York since 2001
We came to New York for the first time in the year 2001 and were immediately fascinated with the city that never sleeps. Following the terrorist attacks of September 11, the city came to a halt for a short while. We returned to New York five years later to complete an internship. This gave us the opportunity to experience New York in the snow and to witness the fabulous re-awakening in spring. Central Park was covered in cherry blossoms, a sensational sight. It was during our second visit that Tino and I first commented that we should put together a blog of our favorite places and experiences (as well as pitfalls). It took us a few more years before we actually wrote the first posts of our New York blog however.
From then on, we have visited New York at least once every year. Each time, we chose a different area of Manhattan for our hotel. Piece by piece, we have discovered the various sections of the city, each with its own special character: Greenwich Village, East Village, SoHo, and Midtown. New York City is so multifaceted and complex that it is difficult to say that one truly knows the entire city though. New York City is constantly changing and reinventing itself. Somehow, the city manages however to stay true to itself – and that is what makes New York so fascinating. Our blog about New York features categories for each of the various areas of the city, so there should be something relevant to everyone!
One important aspect of the blog are the insider guides to New York: the tours through the individual districts and areas of the city!
