Thanks everyone for an amazing 27th birthday!
August marks my 4th Anniversary as a resident of Manhattan and I’m hoping for many more years here in the Big Apple. So in honor of the city that I’m proud to call home, I’ve put together a collection of my favorite Instagrams that best describe my magical NYC experience. I’m also obsessed with Instagram so be sure to follow me! Above is a photo of Times Square last New Year’s Eve just when the clock struck midnight.

Over the weekend, I took a walk on The High Line where I shot a picture of this amazing mural depicting Alfred Eisenstaedt’s famous photo, V-J Day in Times Square, on a modern rainbow background. It’s details like this that make me love New York along with all of its glamourous past, present, and future.
So I finally got an iPhone (I know it’s shameful how long it took), but this phone upgrade has truly marked an upgrade in my life. I’ve come to realize that every time I use Instagram, I’m holding a billion dollars. That app is absolutely amazing. If you ask me, Facebook purchased it for a steal. Today, I walked through my neighborhood on Manhattan’s west side shooting Instagrams of my surroundings. Seeing them on Instagram was as magical as when I saw New York for the first time.
Above you will find the Empire State Building to the left and the view from outside my door on Ninth Ave. to the right. Since this past weekend was absolutely beautiful, I took a stroll through the High Line, a city park built on old elevated train tracks. Here are some of the highlights of my High Line trip:
