New York City
Over 8.6 million people call New York City home. An additional 65 million visit each year. Most of those visitors fill their time with the typical tourist sites and never venture into the neighborhoods that make New York the quintessential melting pot of humanity. For me, the East Village, Soho, Greenwich Village and NoLita capture the city’s true essence, rich with diversity and overflowing with stories just waiting to be heard.
