One of the things I love most about being a blogger is meeting and connecting with other bloggers from all over the world. For this post, I am taking a break from Mental Health Awareness Month to talk about my top 3 favorite places to visit in New York City (NYC)
This week’s post is part of a more significant collaboration created and inspired by Bee, a blogger from the lifestyle blog Mind, Beauty, Simplicity.

Places Around The World Collaboration Intro
Bee asked a group of bloggers, including myself, to share the top three places we love to visit in our hometowns.
With the pandemic slowly dying down, many people are itching to travel to new places and experience new adventures. This collaboration is a fun way to spark an interest in traveling for those interested in doing so soon.
There is so much to see and explore in the world. Bee Created this challenge for bloggers to get together to showcase the best parts of their hometowns and favorite activities.
So, without further ado, here are my top 3 favorite places to visit in NYC.
My Top 3 Favorite Places In NYC
Beatstro, a Hip Hop Restaurant in the South Bronx
First off, let me tell you that food makes me happy. But, any place that plays great music makes me happier. Beatstro is a small popular Hip Hop restaurant in the South Bronx. I love the Beatstro and have wanted to visit this restaurant for a while. I follow them on Instagram and have seen how busy the place is. The atmosphere is excellent, and the staff is friendly.
Their food selection is small for a well-known small restaurant but packs a punch once eaten. Something that makes the restaurant more special for me is the club vibes you get from the moment you walk near the restaurant. The music pays homage to the birth of Hip Hop, its artists, and what’s hot today in music.
Most importantly, if you’re a Hip Hop lover and want to support a black-owned restaurant, then this is the place you must go to.
The Brooklyn Bridge
The Brooklyn Bridge is one of the most popular tourist spots in the city. I personally love the Brooklyn Bridge because of how iconic it is. The Brooklyn Bridge is in a few of my favorite films, such as Sex and the City, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, and Enchanted.
The scenery at the Brooklyn Bridge is breathtaking and is an excellent place for taking photos or having a creative photoshoot. It’s one of my favorite places to visit with friends or to get some alone time.
If you’re ever looking for an Instagrammable place in NYC, then the Brooklyn Bridge is the place you must visit.
Okay, everyone knows about Central Park, but no one ever talks about Bryant Park. Personally, Bryant Park is much better than Central Park for many reasons. For starters, the park has fantastic vibes. There are always musicians, artists, B-Boys, and other performers showcasing their talents.
You can do so much at Bryant Park, such as taking a stroll on the paths, sitting by the water fountain, eating a small lunch at the many food and beverage places, or shopping in the nearby small stores.
The local park committees and government organizations tend to hold many free events throughout the year, such as tours, clean-up days, and small concerts where people can support local artists and vendors.
Bryant Park is a place that you cannot forget to visit before you travel back home.
