I told you a few days ago that I’m helping Trollbeads promote their new City Bead collection. (Click here to see a super cool page on their site featuring a few of my photos and favorite picks. WOOT) We worked on fun video where I highlighted all my favorite spots in NYC.
What places did I pick? To be honest with you, there are a DOZEN I can list right now. But if I had to narrow it down to a few I would absolutely select…
Downtown! To get the perfect view of the skyline, you have to hop on the Staten Island Ferry. On this quick ride, you can see the Statue of Liberty and everything that NYC has to offer – including the Freedom Tower. And here’s a little secret… the ferry is FREE! So, make sure you jump on when you visit. Squeeze it in and be sure to have your camera ready. You won’t want to miss this view.
Chelsea! Oh how I love Chelsea!! You can walk the High Line, enjoy Chelsea Market, eat at one of the many amazing restaurants that line the cobblestone streets or… get your shopping on. I mean, talk about BLISS!
Times Square! This is absolutely a tourist spot. I know this. But if it’s your first visit to NYC, you can’t come without hitting up 42nd street. It’s a must-see. The crowds will be dense. The souvenirs will be cheap and the lights will be BRIGHT – any time of the day. If you can squeeze in a Broadway show, please do! Otherwise, just walk around and enjoy the energy level.
Trollbeads created a bracelet with NY in mind. I just LOVE THIS concept! It’s for the woman who loves the city. The New York City Bead is leading the line – of course! With the Statue of Liberty on one side and the Freedom Tower on the other, the Big Apple bead is a perfect representation of my hometown. Right next to the City Bead, is a bead full of stars — similar to the Times Square New Year’s Eve Ball. Then you have a colorful bead that represents the Freedom Tower’s 9/11 Memorial. Last but not least – a heart because… “I LOVE NY”!! We all know that saying, right??
I have an opportunity for you to win the NY bracelet right now and I am so excited to give one away!
