I have been living in Manhattan for over 6 years and have lived around New York City for my entire life. I currently work in the media industry as well as write and blog part time. My writing is inspired by two main purposes; wanting to help those visitors to New York City get a local city dwellers experience and to provide new and unique ideas for those already living in the city. My website, ExploringNY.com, highlights the most unique of what we believe NYC has to offer for food, drink, and fun. I love taking photos of the city as well, using Instagram as my main publishing canvas. When I'm not working or writing then I am either exploring something new or tasting something I never have experienced.
