Union Square Holiday Market 2012

November 23rd, 2012 @ 10:09am by Rebecca Bollwitt

Before coming to New York I started following a few Twitter accounts: @WHotelsNYC (our hotel), @UnionSquareNY (Union Square, the area in which we’ve been staying), and @UrbanSpaceNYC (curator of New York’s public markets). The night we arrived they were setting up the Union Square Holiday Market and it’s been on all week. Free to enter, […]

November 22nd, 2012 @ 2:36pm by Rebecca Bollwitt

Well before we first watched Miracle on 34th Street with my mother, she has longed to visit New York and holiday shop at Macy’s. She has traveled the world throughout her life but it wasn’t until this week that I was able to join her on her first-ever trip to The Big Apple. The purpose […]

High Line Park New York

November 20th, 2012 @ 3:47pm by Rebecca Bollwitt

What do you do with a historic elevated freight railway that spans over a mile along the West Side of Manhattan? Well you could turn it into a public park, High Line Park to be exact. Owned by the City of New York and maintained by the Friends of the High Line, this elevated public […]

Central Park New York Photowalk

November 18th, 2012 @ 9:44am by Rebecca Bollwitt

In Vancouver, Stanley Park is a close to a “Happy Place” as I can find. Forest trails, hidden creeks that come alive after a rain shower, and sweeping views of the North Shore. It’s full of life but it’s peaceful at the same time. So, when I come to New York, I always go for […]

Distrikt Hotel in New York City

June 7th, 2010 @ 10:16am by Rebecca Bollwitt

When in New York last month, Keira and I stayed at the Distrikt Hotel between Hell’s Kitchen and the Theatre District. Keira originally found the hotel listed online through Expedia and watched customer reviews pour in since its launch earlier in 2010. Scanning Yelp consistently and seeing that the price was right (packaged with our […]

Vancouver to New York 2

May 31st, 2010 @ 7:29am by Rebecca Bollwitt

I’ve been to New York twice before but each time has been for no longer than 3 days. Months ago I booked a trip with Keira who has been planning her visit to the Big Apple since I met her, and even long before that. She had studied the MTA subway maps, memorized streets and […]

Vancouver to New York

May 25th, 2010 @ 6:20pm by Rebecca Bollwitt

I’m in New York this week to hang out, explore, work, wander, and do a whole lot of walking. Since Keira and I are already half-way through our journey, I thought it was time for a photo post so that I can share some of our adventures so far. Brunch in the West Village Carrie’s […]
