Eiffel Tower, The Seine, and Parisian Carousels 

:)

This was one of my most viewed Periscopes. I took 1200 people under the Eiffel Tower in real time as well as along the Seine while chatting with them. Was awesome!!!

Make sure to watch to the end - there are some REALLY funny parts with french horn players along the Seine (like something out of Looney Tunes!).

Central Park - Spring Wonderland

This was downloaded from the new Periscope app (owned by Twitter). It's a livestreaming app and I have been walking around New York City taking anywhere from 200 to over 1000 people with me in real time.

People can chat with you while you are using the app but sadly the chat doesn't export. So, I am answering people's questions.

I am a fine art travel photographer (yes, it is really my career :) ) based in New York City so I have been live-streaming bits of my life and career to audiences. The interaction has been inspiring!

Hope you enjoy!

Travel photographer and writer based in New York City.
Introduction
Photography found me a few years ago and I found, in turn, that photography and writing are two of my biggest passions in this world. 

I now spend an inordinate amount of time photographing the world and writing about it.

I couldn't be happier.

In fact, my book containing my photography of New York City along with my writing is being released this autumn. It's available for pre-sale on Amazon right now. All info and details about the book can be found here:

I don't know what I could possibly say that hasn't been said already regarding this beloved late-night East Village establishment. The fries are potato perfection: slightly crispy and golden on the outside and deliciously soft on the inside. Their wide array of sauces is unmatched and I am personally fond of the pesto, mango and wild mushroom sauces. Every time I am in Pommes Frites, a number of people are ordering the poutine which looks heavenly. The only negative I could possibly come up with regarding this spot is that the lines can get super long especially on the weekends. The East Village is home to many bars and fries seem to go well with a bit of inebriation making the wait a bit long at times.

This is a really low-key, understated Thai food restaurant. Their curries are incredible and they have curries I haven't seen listed in many other places like pumpkin curry. The prices are reasonable relative to the neighborhood and the vibe here is a relaxing one. The staff is also very attentive and they offer free-wifi which is always a plus.

Whoa! I found out about this place from Yelp. Living close to it, I have passed it quite a few times since reading about it but haven't had the time to try it out until this fine evening. Knowing that it frequently is full of NYC cabbies (and seeing this every time I pass it) looking to have a great meal added to it's appeal for sure. I just ordered a bowl of rice with 2 sides (I chose #4 and #7 sides today) and oh my.... this is *seriously* the best Indian food I have had in NYC, hands down. Not only that but everything is obscenely cheap! I cannot believe I just paid what I paid for this! Also, the rows and rows of Bollywood videos lining the walls are great to browse through while waiting for your tasty meal to be heated up. You would never, ever imagine such gastronomic delights existed within since it's a fairly tiny and definitely under-the-radar sort of place. Will be going back for more!

Look, I think that anything I attempt to say about this place will never quite suffice because it's really *that* good. However, I will attempt to explain why I frequent this taco truck with wild abandon and why I have even told people on more than one occasion that their burrito is akin to a metaphorical food of the gods. This is authentic Mexican food at its finest. It's not laden with salt to make up for a lack of seasoning. It's not generic tex-mex. It's no frills, super tasty (they don't know the meaning of bland) and ultra fulfilling Mexican food done right. Let's talk about their burritos. For $7.50, you get a gargantuan burrito packed with cilantro, the tastiest rice of its kind around (if you opt for the vegetarian option which is *excellent*), your choice of meat, lettuce, queso fresco (fresh), onions, chopped tomatoes, guacamole and a nice tiny sprinkle of fresh grated cheese and sour cream. If you ask for it 'hot', they really pack a punch with the spice so unless you are ready to commit in that way, you may want to first try it without the super spicy stuff (which, by the way, brings the burrito to a whole other level of awesome if you love hot and spicy food). There was a 3 day period a few months ago when they weren't on their typical corner and I was in a serious panic. I can't imagine a world or the East Village without this beloved truck.

This definitely ranks in my top 10 New York experiences now. Yes, it was that good. I attended the two hour tour called Getting By- Past and Present and not only was the tour guide extremely personable and knowledgeable but it's such an incredible way to live through history. During my tour, we went through two different tenement apartments, learned all about the families who lived there and got to look at census records, photographs and keepsakes of the former tenants. We also listened to a short oratory recollection of an inhabitant of one of the apartments. She spoke about what it was like to live there when she was a little girl and described in detail parts of the kitchen where we were standing which had been lovingly restored to be exactly as she had explained. It was chilling and heart warming. The guide took us through a non-restored apartment to show how things were when the museum initially found the space which was harrowing since there was so much decay and history before us even down to the writing on the walls indicating the amount of garments that had been stored in the room by tenants. Since it was the two hour tour, there was much spirited discussion and lots of questions and it was just one of those perfect New York experiences where people discussed their own family migration histories. We even all had some cookies and iced tea together at the end! I am considering becoming a member now. What a great, great place and space. Highly recommended for those visiting NYC looking to piece together their own histories by viewing the early experiences of these former tenement families and also native NYers looking to learn more about their city.
