5 Ways To Use Your (NY) City

Was attempting to take my first inspirational ‍♀️ picture under the street that reads “lift you higher”, but in real life it’s 20 degrees out and all we got was “you higher” and NYC germs all over my bag.

Was attempting to take my first inspirational yoga picture under the street that reads “lift you higher”, but in real life it’s 20 degrees out and all we got was “you higher” and NYC germs all over my bag.

I’m two weeks into my yoga teacher training, and LOVING it! I think there’s something so refreshing about going back to “school” to learn something new—not only does it provide a new skill set, but also just makes your life perspective so much wider and fresh. At least that’s my experience so far;-)

How’s everyone else’s January going? I’ve corralled a few favorites below for you to add to your NYC agenda!

NYC Free Activity To Do: Pictures Under the Palms (We all know about the free movies hosted in NYC parks during the summer, but did you know you can cozy up weekly at Brookfield Place for indoor movies under the palm trees?! Every Tuesday, seating opens at 5:15pm and films start at 7pm. Free popcorn is provided!)

NYC Book To Read: Small Admissions (This is our Novels Of New York book club pick for the month of January. It’s a fictional tale about the elementary private school admissions process in NYC, and is an absolute hoot to read. I couldn’t put it down!)

NYC Restaurant To Eat: Divya’s Kitchen (I’ve eaten here twice in the last week alone! It’s a vegetarian Ayuverdic spot on the Lower East Side, featuring large flavorful dishes in the most serene space. Perfect if you’re wanting to eat out but also stick to those healthy eating resolutions.)

NYC Event To Know About: Broadway Week (Lasting Fromm January 16th through February 4th, 2018, now is the perfect time to snag those 2-for-1 Broadway tickets. Grab a friend and pay half price for a fun night out at the theater! Big name shows like Wicked and Hello Dolly! are available.)

NYC Spot To Escape The Cold: Downstairs at the Plaza Hotel (The Plaza Hotel has a Food Hall in its basement which is widely known about, but it also has free public seating which is a bit less talked about. After a romp in Central Park, grab a cup of cocoa from one of the food stands and nestle in for a warmup session—they even have free wi-fi!)
