“Being in NY automatically makes you stronger, smarter, faster and more interesting.”


Today I’m happy to welcome to the blog Kristy Calabro, a Staten Islander of 38 years who works in Advertising, and has a passion for photography. I first discovered her through her amazing Instagram account, @KristyCNYC, and absolutely fell in love with her street art captures.

What is your favorite way to #TreatYoSelf in the city?

I love to treat myself to live performances in NYC; whether it’s Broadway or a concert. Purely living in the moment of this shared, raw experience between audience and performers…there’s nothing like it!

When do you most often utilize this treat?

Four to five times a month.

Would you consider this treat to be budget friendly, a sensational splurge, or somewhere in the middle?

This treat is somewhere in the middle. Some ticket purchases are expensive, other performances that I enjoy could be a random subway busker that’s totally spontaneous and free (which also makes a great photo op!)

It seems to be a trend that #TreatYoSelf days tend to come when there is either something to celebrate or when you need a pick-me-up. In the case of the latter, what words of encouragement would you give a New Yorker who is having a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day?

You’re a New Yorker; you’re a hustler by nature, you’ve heard it all, you’ve seen it all. Being in NY automatically makes you stronger, smarter, faster and more interesting. Find something you’re passionate about, be dedicated to that passion and I promise things will get better and you will be successful!

Thank you so much for joining us on the blog today, Kristy, and sharing your favorite way to use your city on a #TreatYoSelf day!
