Our Love Affair with NYC
We at Halstead Property are completely in love with New York City. For more than 28 years, our romance with this beautiful city has grown. Being a part of the real estate process has given us an inside look at how NYC operates and thrives, how its heart beats to its own time, and how people know that there is no better place to live in the world.
This Valentine’s Day, we want to take a moment and reflect on just how thankful we are to be a part of New York. Here are some of the reasons why we love New York:
The cultural institutions. There are countless museums, theaters, galleries, performance centers, music clubs, and sporting venues. These establishments are such a part of our life routines as New Yorkers. We are completely in love with the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA), the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, the art galleries of Downtown Manhattan, Broadway and the Theater District, Times Square, Madison Square Garden, the list doesn’t end.
The iconic landmarks. They are fixated in the skyline, historical, awe-inspiring, and meaningful, always associated with New York. We love the Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty, Central Park,South Street Seaport, Coney Island, and the Brooklyn Bridge. We love areas like Wall Street, Chinatown, Little Italy, and Greenwich Village, which all offer a glimpse into the City’s past. There’s so much to see and do and appreciate.
The restaurants and the shopping. Nowhere else in the world can you enjoy a better meal, whether in a fine dining first-class restaurant, or in a classic NYC establishment, there are approximately 20,000 dining choices to choose from, and counting. We love the unmatched cuisine and the keeping up with all the newly opened restaurants. The shopping is to-die-for. Every fashion and luxury boutique imaginable can be found on Madison Avenue or Fifth Avenue. There are great independent and unique stores, as well as the must-visit wardrobe staple stores. And that’s only the fashion shopping, let’s not forget other shops like the gorgeous Apple Store on Fifth Avenue or the legendary FAO Schwarz toy store.
We can go on for hours with why we love New York, but part of the beauty of this city is discovering it for yourself and compiling a list of the things you are dying to try, and then making your way through that list one-by-one, taking in every experience.
From our family to yours, Happy Valentine’s Day! We hope this holiday finds you happy and healthy with the people you love, in the place that you love. For us, that’s New York City.
