The Big Apple's Big Plans for the Future

If you’re a New York City resident, chances are you’ve seen the article the Huffington Post published – ” This Is What New York City Could Look Like In 2033.” Personally, I love this stuff. The city of New York and all these private investors have visions of grandeur and dream of revolutionizing Manhattan. Some of these projects are capital works like the new Penn Station, the new World Trade Center, and the Low Line Park, while others are mainly funded privately like Cornell’s planned campus expansion on Roosevelt Island and Williamsburg’s Bedford Avenue. New York is the kind of city that requires constant growth. It fuels our economy, provides jobs, enhances property values and often contributes a great deal to our skyline. That being said, I wholeheartedly support some of these ideas. I’m even excited about them.

Ilona and Derek Take The World - Part 3

After our “first official date” in Stuttgart, Germany we knew that this would not be our last meeting. Luckily in Europe you get more vacation time (about 30 days per year) so it was my turn to come to Derek - to New York. In September 2010 I landed in JFK airport. Unfortunately, Polish citizens still need a visa to enter the US. Poland joined the European Union in 2004 and Schengen area in 2007 but the visa is still required.

A Grand Tour Of Harlem

When traveling to New York City, the obvious hot spots are Times Square, Grand Central, the Empire State Building, etc. With so much to see and do, it’s hard to see the whole city in one trip. That being said, there is one neighborhood that most people don’t make time for, but should. That neighborhood is Harlem. Luckily, a tour group called Free Tours by Foot offers a fabulous tour of the neighborhood. Home to a number of historically famous landmarks, Harlem has gone through several phases of gentrification and depression, as well. Originally a farming territory until the late 1800’s, Harlem was a separate colony from Manhattan, connected by Broadway. If you have ever actually explored the neighborhood, you know how hilly it is. Those hills were once cliffs that now serve as sidewalks, roads, and parks.
