If you want to learn more about a city you have just moved to…look for some of the top bloggers in your area. I have recently started following some NY bloggers that blog about different aspects of NY. For example, AGuyWalksInto365Bars [http://www.aguywalksinto365bars.com] is literally a blog about a guy that will be walking into 365 bars this year (1 every day). The type of bars he goes to are very varied and so are his experiences. Its a really fun blog to read. Check out the rules of his visits as well. They are awesome. For example, one of his rules is that if he misses even a single day, he has to start back on day 1. Another rule is that he has to have at least 3 drinks at each bar (multiply that by 365 and thats a whole lot of drinks in one year).
Another blog I have started to love is the ‘New York Daily Photo’. The idea behind the blog is very simple, yet so innovative. Every day, a new photo, taken somewhere in NY is posted to the blog, and with it is some related information. One of my fav posts from his recent blog entries is one about New York’s infamous apartment hotels such as Hotel Carlyle [http://newyorkdailyphoto.blogspot.com/2010/07/carlyle.html] where the likes of the Kennedy’s, Marilyn Monroe, Frank Sinatra have had orgies!!….Only in New York!! 🙂
