street art guide NYC

One thing you’ll notice when you walk the streets of NYC is, besides all the hustle-and-bustle, that the city is anything else than a dull, grey concrete jungle. The eclectic street art scene has taken over the most blank wall spaces, making the Big Apple a colourful open museum. During the years I’ve been collecting photos of my favourite pieces of art and I’m happy to participate in my fellow blogger’s photo project 12 magic mottos and this month’s theme…

Summer in the city? Yes please! I dared to visit NYC in the summer and although it was as hot and humid as I feared, after all it wasn’t that bad.

AC’s are life savers (especially in the trains as you can get baked in the stations…), so are cold drinks and the refreshing Atlantic ocean. …

A tour through Brooklyn’s Chinatown

April 27, 2015

What I really like about NYC is the fact that you can walk a few blocks and feel like being in an entirely different country. The huge Chinese community gathers in different “Chinatowns”, the one in Manhattan being the most famous. But if you want to get away from the tourists, there is another Chinatown in Brooklyn in the neighbourhood of Sunset Park. …
