Where to Stay in Hell’s Kitchen, NYC? – Ink48

Hell’s Kitchen. Today this Manhattan neighborhood certainly doesn’t deserve its nickname, and in the last ten years the midtown-west location has truly transformed.  Today, some even label it as trendy and chic. Many new hotels have opened in the neighborhood including most of the major brands. They realized that when you visit New York City […]

Sunset Sunday – Columbus Circle, NYC

Sunset Sunday – Columbus Circle, NYC

Sometimes I search out the sunset. I plan my day around the moment. I find it’s well worth it every time. Other times, well the sunset finds me. It finds us all. We can be at an event or perhaps just living life and “wa-la” the sunset causes us to pause. We watch it. We enjoy […]

Happy 4th of July! Fireworks from the Hudson River, NYC

Happy 4th of July! Fireworks from the Hudson River, NYC

Happy Birthday America! To aid our celebration, I attached a thirty second video of the fireworks finale from New York last year. The holiday sunset on the Hudson sparkled, but fireworks impressed, especially with this great view on pier 66 in Chelsea. Enjoy. Have a great 4th of July! Stay adventurous, Craig

Sunset Sunday – 4th of July on the Hudson River, New York

Last year, with the 4th of July fireworks on the Hudson River (and not the East River), spectators watched two shows. Not only did they get a chance to see one of the largest firework displays in the country, but they also had a chance to see a sunset. For the prized view, you needed […]

Sunset Sunday – Walking the Brooklyn Bridge, New York

As a native New Yorker, I am often asked for recommendations, the “what to do, what to see” regarding my city. It’s not hard to rattle of a list of ‘to-dos’ about arguably one of the world’s most dynamic and exciting destinations so I oblige. Yet I don’t often write about them. I don’t want […]

Sunset Sunday – NYC Marathon, Central Park

On New York City Marathon Sunday, you can usually find me in Central Park when the sun sets, but I start that day by waking up early to watch the race (the professionals), enjoy a long leisurely brunch and then head to experience one New York City’s best experiences, the joy of cheering for all […]

Cheering for Everyone, the Joy of the NYC Marathon

Cheering for Everyone, the Joy of the NYC Marathon

This year I will miss an annual tradition. This weekend I will not be there to support the thousands who lace up and run the NYC marathon from the sidelines. But even from a distance (I am in Mexico) I will take a moment on Sunday to cheer. To mark the occasion, I decided to […]

Sunset Sunday – Upstate New York

Sunset Sunday – Upstate New York

A family reunion took me to upstate New York this summer. To be honest, I held little appreciation for my state outside of what I knew. Growing up, New York consisted of Long Island and the city. And when people mentioned New York – well that was New York City.  Ignorance might be bliss at times, […]
