People chatting at New York City Seaport

New York City Seaport is another historic location and formerly home to NYC’s fish market before it was moved to the Bronx. Hurricane Sandy changed the mood in at NYC’s Seaport historic buildings specially to the ones closer to the East River. A new fancy Mall has been constructed instead of the old cool looking traditional Mall with its amazing food court located on the top floor. You could find a wide variety of food for really affordable prices. Now, there’s a fancy rooftop bar/restaurant. During my walk and while have amazing coffee brewed at home. I noticed another restaurant/bar right by the water. They are now using domes to sit restaurant customers outdoors due to the current COVID pandemic. Check out more pictures below hopefully this eating outdoors fashion stays forever. Feels like I’m walking somewhere in Europe. Traditionally New Yorkers are not used to this way of life,…

NYC Bushwick Brooklyn art

Every time I come by Bushwick in Brooklyn I find new mural art all around the unique streets. New York City mural art in Bushwick is very unique and it attracts many visitors that come by to take pictures next to each wall mural. Other attractions include vintage shopping, creative restaurants like pizza trendsetter Roberta‚Äôs and the diverse creative multicultural residents. Easily get to Bushwick in Brooklyn by subway taking the L train to Morgan or Jefferson St. The neighborhood offers a thoroughly bohemian vibe with bodegas and warehouses abutting galleries and bars. Now the Bushwick in Brooklyn is seeing a renaissance, as artists pushed out of Williamsburg and elsewhere move in and raise property values. Bushwick offers cool living spaces mainly lofts in old factories, sometimes with great access to outdoor space. During the pandemic there are not many visitors walking around. But, during any regular weekend you will…

Coney Island Parachute Tower
Red Hook Brooklyn Viewer by the East River

Red Hook Brooklyn was founded in 1836 by Dutch colonists. This is why we can notice so many Holland style warehouse buildings all around Red Hook Brooklyn. I went to a bike ride and sat by the river while having my favorite Latin America coffee. I still drink hot black coffee during any hot summer day in NYC. By the 1920s, they made Red Hook the busiest freight port in the world, but this ended in the 1960s with the creation of shipping containers. Then by the 1930s Red Hook became one of the poorest neighborhoods in New York and it was called ‘city for the homeless’ or ‘Hooverville’. Most of Red Hook has changed due to gentrification. People from around the world have moved here mainly artists. IKEA has also set its main chain store right by the East River. These and other reasons have contributed to an increase…

New Yorkers storefront art Soho

Many New Yorkers remember New York City by the glitz and glam of the streets of Lower Manhattan,along which fashion conglomerates and cozy boutiques stand. Mannequins pose in thewindows, beckoning tourists to collect the newest, trendiest items from the laps of luxury. In the wake of the COVID-19 crisis and the protests in support of Black Lives Matter, retailersbegan to board up their storefronts. Though the fashion industry has gone into quarantine withthe rest of the world, its barren shutters have become a playground for artists who have laidthe true heart of the city bare on their wooden canvases. The retreat of clothing stores behind painted boards seems to mirror the way society isbeginning to question consumerism and capitalism, which have traditionally overshadowed theurgency of addressing racial injustices. The tragic murders of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery,and Breonna Taylor may have been the impetus for the people of New York City…

NYC Moments delivery bike man

NYC seems empty, but still beautiful. Many people walk keeping their distance. Delivery guys on bikes work hard to deliver food directly from local markets in NYC. While walking in New York City Chelsea and having a great cup of Latin America coffee I decided to document the street life during the pandemic of 2020.
