New York City

New York, often called the City that Never Sleeps, is renowned for its cultural diversity and plethora of activities, including free events, museums, new restaurants, and shopping opportunities. It’s a city that truly has something for everyone.


During my visits to New York, particularly Brooklyn, I’ve been drawn to the vibrant atmosphere, especially in the summer. I cherish the time spent with loved ones and appreciate the convenience of everything being within walking distance. One of my favorite morning habits is walking to a local bakery for freshly made saltfish and bake, a pleasant start to the day.


Brooklyn’s summer offerings are endless. I’ve enjoyed visits to Coney Island, with its charming amusement park, attended engaging forums, marveled at street art, and savored meals at various eateries, including the delightful Hibiscus Brew Cafe. The summer months are filled with festivals, parties, and events, reflecting the lively spirit of the city. The atmosphere is one of individuality and independence, with everyone minding their own business. A quintessential part of Brooklyn’s…no  New York’s culture.

There’s no shortage of things to do in New York City. From shopping to pop-up events, museums to art shows, dining experiences to broadway shows, the options are endless. Some highlights include riding the Staten Island Ferry, visiting museums, exploring the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, walking across the Brooklyn Bridge, and experiencing the thrill of The Edge (if you’re not afraid of heights). There’s always something new and exciting to discover in the city that never sleeps.


Food enthusiasts will find New York to be a culinary paradise. While I don’t indulge in dairy so I haven’t eaten New York style pizza, I’ve found great joy in the city’s Caribbean cuisine, including doubles, rice and peas, curry, jerk, fried plantain, and freshly made bake and saltfish. Street vendors offering fresh coconut water are a common sight in the summer. The city’s food scene is diverse and robust, offering everything from Mexican and Chinese to Italian cuisine.

For those planning a trip to New York, I recommend checking out Time Out for the latest events and attractions. It’s also important to be mindful of rush hour if and when using public transportation and to carry cash, as some local establishments may only accept it. Packing for the season and wearing comfortable walking shoes are also essential tips for exploring the city.

In conclusion, I love visiting New York for its endless array of activities and the vibrant Caribbean vibes that are particularly strong in the summer. It’s a city that never fails to captivate me, and I look forward to my next adventure there.
