Sometimes you just want a bit of peace and quiet to relax. Bryant Park is a great spot to get into a good book or join a board game to meet some new friends. This park is right by the NY Library's main branch, so you can't miss it.

If you are looking for a special night out whether you want to test your rap skills in front of a crowd, sing at the top of your lungs with your best friend or just scream... I got a perfect place for that. New York has one of the greatest venues that host worldwide music entertainers, Radio City Music Hall takes place in 6th Avenue, the most inconic area around New York that so many tourist and even locals dream before they visit. The most recent artist who visited the venue was Rosalia which we can tell she was AMAZING and had such a great show. I definetly recomend having a nice day walking around the area, visiting the Rockefeller Center, walking around Central park, go on top of the amazing Empire State Building and definitely at night go and have fun at a concert in Radio City Music Hall.

A great master of the motion picture, what about jumping in a neorealist France movie.
Nazarín. 1959. Mexico. Directed by Luis Buñuel. Screenplay by Julio Alejandro, Buñuel, Benito Pérez Galdós, Emilio Carballido. Cinematography by Gabriel Figueroa. With Francisco Rabal, Marga Lopez, Rita Macedo. DCP. In Spanish; English subtitles. 94 min.
Luis Buñuel’s personal favorite among the films he made in Mexico, Nazarín is a blisteringly ironic, hauntingly beautiful parable about an idealistic young priest (Francisco Rabal) whose attempts to lead a truly Christian life are ridiculed by the thieves and prostitutes who make up his urban parish. Driven out, he wanders the countryside begging for food, but when his prayers seem to cure a dying child, he becomes a Christlike figure, pursuing his mission with two former prostitutes (Marga Lopez and Rita Macedo) as his apostles. Despite winning an award at the 1959 Cannes Film Festival, the film’s treatment of religion proved so controversial that it was not released in the US until 1968, where it was received by an uncomprehending pan in the New York Times. Out of distribution for many years, Nazarín was restored in 2019 by Mexico’s Cineteca Nacional and Fundación Televisa, and now takes its place as one of Buñuel’s masterworks.

I am passionate about Naguchi and today I want to add it to the Nicity map!
Isamu Noguchi "imagines our nice reporters in a Blitzkrieg," said a 1940 editorial in The New York Herald Tribune. Its author was referring to the five journalists depicted in Noguchi’s 22-foot-tall, cast stainless steel bas-relief sculpture "News," which had just been installed above the main entrance of the Associated Press Building at 50 Rockefeller Plaza.
Noguchi submitted his proposal for "News" in 1938, and later said that the sculpture "foretold of war." His design emphasizes the importance and urgency of reporters getting the story—and getting it fast and right—during pivotal, even dangerous times. The work's dynamic figures suggest people melded together to serve a greater purpose. Rippling through the plane, they struggle as one mass, like the father and his sons against the serpents in the ancient Greek marble sculpture "Laocoön Group."
Noguchi's gleaming "News" adorns the building’s limestone façade like an enormous silvery brooch, but its energetic internal forms and lines race and rain down like a barrage on the front doors below. Its forward momentum is evocative of the Hellenistic marble sculpture "The Winged Victory of Samothrace" and of figures plowing through the waves, mounted on ships’ prows. The journalists feel fixed, wedged like spikes into the architecture. Taut yet elastic, however, they ride the newswires like a steaming locomotive.

Me and my girlfriend have visited several of the existing shoemakers in midtown, and I must say that Rafik Shoe Repair shop is the greatest in Midtown!! For the past three years, we've been a satisfied customer of his! He has the ability to fix almost everything. You go to the barber's window in the back of the establishment and tell him your concerns, and voilà! He flicks his magic wand and makes your shoes, purses, and other items BETTER THAN NEW in less than 24 hours (in most cases). They are quite pleasant to deal with and always take the time to address my questions. He's dependable and really skilled at what he does. Friendly, professional, rapid, and reasonable repair and time spent pricing. It's impossible to beat same-day excellent service like this. My girlfriend also brought a few pairs of shoes, boots, and one white leather Adidas pair. On each of these shoes, She needed various things done. She was blown away by how nice they all looked when she picked them up! Particularly her freshly cleaned, bright white Adidas. The total cost of the project was affordable. By just fixing and washing them, it was like obtaining completely new shoes for half the price.

This story happens to be our accidental stomping grounds in NYC: we wind up spending a lot of time in Midtown during all of our travels to New York since we have a good friend who lives a few blocks from Midtown and lets us crash with him when we come. We went to Fifth Avenue, which is home to some of the world's most famous businesses, including Tiffany & Co., Bergdorf Goodman, and Saks Fifth Avenue. Fifth Avenue, Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise and a fun place to visit even if you're not trying to buy anything! Rockefeller Center is famous for two things: its colossal annual Christmas tree and the view from the peak (also known as "The Top of the Rock"). Both of these attractions are highly worth seeing, but make sure to stop by regardless to view the Atlas statue and the stunning scenery! If you're looking for a great view of the Manhattan skyline, a trip to the top of the Empire State Building should be on your list of things to do in Midtown. Last but not least, we headed to the Grand Central Terminal, one of the most famous film sites in the world, having served as a backdrop in innumerable films and television series. When you're inside, don't forget to look up–I had no idea Grand Central had a colored turquoise ceiling until I saw it in person, and it's now my favorite feature of the building. Note: If you're hungry, you should also visit the famed and stunning Grand Central Oyster Bar while you're there.
