Walking in New York City gives you the chance to see details and discover NYC’s architecture, landmarks, historic streets, New Yorker dogs and strange propaganda at most street corners. Walk to Discover NYC is a small photo exhibition I put together sometimes during my walks in different parts of NYC. Sometimes when its sunny I wear a cool hat.

Walking is one of the best ways to explore and discover the many wonders of New York City. Whether you’re a seasoned local or a newcomer to the city, there’s always something new to discover and experience by foot. Here are just a few reasons why walking is the perfect way to discover NYC:

First, walking allows you to see the city from a unique perspective. By slowing down and taking in your surroundings on foot, you’ll notice details and nuances that you might miss when traveling by car or subway. From the intricate architecture of historic buildings to the street art and graffiti that adorns many walls and alleyways, walking in NYC is a sensory experience that can’t be beat.

Second, walking is a great way to get some exercise and stay healthy. With so many walking routes and paths throughout the city, it’s easy to get in your daily steps while discovering new neighborhoods, parks, and hidden gems. Plus, walking is a low-impact and accessible form of exercise that’s perfect for people of all ages and fitness levels.

Third, walking is a sustainable and eco-friendly way to get around the city. By choosing to walk instead of drive or take a taxi, you’re reducing your carbon footprint and helping to make the city a cleaner and more sustainable place for everyone.

Finally, walking is a social activity that can be enjoyed with friends, family, or even strangers. Whether you’re taking a leisurely stroll through Central Park or exploring the vibrant streets of Chinatown, walking in NYC is a great way to connect with others and experience the city’s diverse and vibrant culture.

In the end, walking is the perfect way to discover NYC, no matter what your interests or goals may be. So grab a comfortable pair of shoes, a water bottle, and a map, and set out on foot to explore all that this amazing city has to offer. You won’t be disappointed!
