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, but now most are enjoying it. What do you think? Leave a comment below if you like my pictures. You can also buy one of my coffee mugs and T-Shirts designs based on my NYC Moments pictures. I create my own designs and I take all the pictures shown in NYC Moments. Thank you and enjoy!

Night time at NYC Quarantined

NYC Ride Your Bike

No matter the time of day, New York City is always bustling with activity….under normal circumstances. As you can see in these photos, the streets of Manhattan are eerily empty. Coronavirus has rendered New York City a ghost town as it becomes the new epicenter of the pandemic. The city that never sleeps is going into a much-needed hibernation.

The Honest Company

Though these images may not show party-goers dressed to the nines and crowding the local watering holes, they can hopefully be a way to jog the memories of those of us who are sitting inside, waiting for the day when it will be safe to re-populate the city. A photograph devoid of human life is also the perfect playing field for the imagination. What would an ideal night out in the city look like? What kinds of characters might I run into? While you may be cooped up inside your home, I hope these photos will help your thoughts run free into the twinkling city night.

2019 NYC Marathon Photos at Brooklyn

nyc marathon 2019

On a crisp morning in early November, 50,000 runners from all over the world descended on the 2019 NYC Marathon to traverse the five boroughs on foot, and just as many New Yorkers showed up to cheer them on. The streets of Brooklyn, where I stood among the crowd of onlookers, were bursting with color, pride, and people just being their authentic selves. At times, the bright costumes, creatively worded signs, loud music, and dancers on the sidewalks brought to mind not a high-caliber race, but a giant outdoor party.

The NYC marathon has always been a reminder, to me, of the best of humanity. Runners and spectators alike set aside their work-related anxieties, their ego-driven arguments, and focus on supporting one another, or perhaps something bigger than themselves. Every other runner, it seemed, wore a shirt celebrating a family member, friend, or anyone else who was a survivor of a devastating disease. Even more inspiring to see were some survivors themselves on the course, blazing through with determination in their eyes. I remember a woman whose shirt indicated that she had Parkinson’s; her hands shook ever so slightly as she passed by, but she pumped her arms and held her head high like everyone else while the neon-clad guides next to her smiled on. This display of resilience can teach us an important lesson about the tenacity of the human spirit. Watching the runners, each of whom overcame something to be at the marathon that day, my own personal mountains didn’t seem quite so daunting to climb. If I put my mind to it, I could accomplish anything.

Beyond highlighting the strength of its participants, the NYC marathon undeniably brings out the vibrant character of the city. You’ll see bands playing styles of music you never knew existed, like merengue-rock fusion, that speak to the diversity of the city’s inhabitants. You’ll hear names from every corner of the world (Jorge! Kavita! Sven! Xinyi!) and the word “go!” in so many different languages. You’ll smell sweat, mixed with the aroma of coffee from the little joint around the corner. If you’re a runner, you might taste one of the bananas the lady in the bright tracksuit is handing out. Most of all, you’ll feel inspired.
