Little Italy NYC night sign at street

There was a time that Little Italy NYC covered more than just Mulberry Street. I took a walk after visiting one of our NYC parks. Little Italy is one of my favorite neighborhoods in New York City. It holds a special place in my heart. It’s a place where the streets are lined with colorful buildings and charming cafes. The air is filled with the scent of fresh pasta and warm bread. Every time I walk through Little Italy, I’m transported to a different time and place. A world of old-world charm and romance. One of the things I love…

Brooklyn Bridge Forbidden Locks

Brooklyn Bridge Forbidden Locks pictures I took during one of my NYC Moments walks across the Brooklyn Bridge. Have you ever walked over this bridge? The Brooklyn Bridge is one of the most popular bridges in the world. Walk over while drinking your favorite specialty coffee or tea.

Well, you may have heard that people have been attaching padlocks to the Brooklyn Bridge as a symbol of their love for years now. But did you know that these locks have actually been causing damage to the bridge?

That’s why the locks have been banned since 2016, and why they are now known as “forbidden locks.” The weight of the locks can cause the bridge’s cables to stretch, which can weaken the entire structure. And with over 10,000 locks at one point, you can imagine how much strain that would put on the bridge!

It’s a shame that something meant to be a symbol of love has caused harm to such an iconic structure. But the good news is that there are plenty of other ways to show your love and appreciation for the Brooklyn Bridge – like taking a romantic walk across it at sunset, or simply admiring its beautiful architecture from afar.

Let me know what you think about these Brooklyn Bridge Forbidden Locks pictures by leaving a comment in the comments area below. Thanks!

Is social distancing affecting you negatively or is it helping you to innovate and become a better you? Social distancing in NYC was a very though challenge.

Gone were the days of meeting up with friends for a drink or grabbing a bite to eat at a favorite restaurant. Instead, we…

NYC Moments Street Posters

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!
