If ever there were a city that begged ambivalence - romanticism, volatility, frenetic energy all at once- it would be New York. The city gathers momentum from all its bustling pockets and hits you with unapologetic force, like a train on the tracks. And the movement is ceaseless; always somewhere to whirl through, always something new to see. Even whilst walking, one must crane their necks up to take in countless skyscrapers puncturing the skyline, all the while maneuvering the jostle of passersby. Thus, the best way to compress the memories of my trip was to encapsulate the constantly moving spirit of the place: New York in motion.
Some of our favorite stops in the city:
to eat | ABC Kitchen, Freemans, 5 Leaves, Ippudo, Halal Guys, Levain Bakery, Burrow Bakery, Momofuku Milk Bar
to unwind | La Colombe, Stumptown, Gasoline Alley Coffee, AP Cafe, McNally Jackson
Missing my favorite New Yorkers @fannieseo and @squeakyhsu & my soul/solemate @junebugkim right about now. Hoping to revisit the city sooner than later!
