Used York City Is Featured On HotelsCheap!

20121201-082745We were thrilled to sit down with HotelsCheap for an interview, where I shared my very favorite things about NYC for both tourists and locals.

Now, I don’t want to give it all away, but one thing I enjoyed chatting about was how running Used York City has changed my relationship with NYC.  Here’s what I said:

It just boils down to spending time doing the things I actually love. For example, when I first started the blog and opportunities would come my way, I’d say yes to everything: “concert? sure! fundraising event? why not! gallery opening? I’ll be there!”  The website has taught me you don’t have to do and love everything; time is better spent digging deeper into the things you really enjoy. So instead of saying yes to 3 random events around the city, I’ll spend my time seeing a show and then going into a deep discussion about the show afterwards while trying a new restaurant. I think this is important because it brings the focus back on inspiration. With the precious hours that we have to ourselves, why not spend them doing something that inspires us and makes us happy?

    Great interview, congrats!

    I often regret that I didn’t make better use of my time while I lived in NYC, though I think now that it’s mostly in my head. Because while I wasn’t so good at going to museums or off-Broadway shows, I checked off just about every food must-do you mentioned – and then some! My priorities were rent (obv.) and then good food. So I think I did all right after all 😉

      You totally did it right;-) And I think it’s all about finding what you love and searching it out in the city–there’s just way too much ground to cover, so it’s better to dig deeper in something you love (food!) than dabble in stuff you’re not crazy about, right?
