Your NYC adventure begins as soon as you step foot in the Big Apple. The way I like to explore — and how the locals do — is through the different neighborhoods in the city. To me, New York is split into two areas: Brooklyn and Manhattan.
Another fairly quiet and more peaceful place to go is Chelsea. There, you'll find a local market fittingly named after the neighborhood it’s housed in: Chelsea Market. You can check out the local restaurants and go to a flea market called Artists & Fleas.
But my absolute favorite place to go to has to be Chinatown. To get a taste of home, head to Great NY Noodletown for some of the best and most authentic Chinese food in New York City. The restaurant is open until 4am, so if you’re ever craving chicken fried rice and chow mein, you know where to go!
