Interview- NYC Tips

Today’s post is a little bit different. In my visit to New York, I had the opportunity to talk with Bruna Paraíso. She writes the blog NYC Tips (http://www.nyctips.com.br) and the Instagram with the same name (@nyctips_). As you can imagine, she knows everything about New York. She moved to the Big Apple two years ago and, after one year, started the NYC Tips by recommendation of some friends. First, she created her Instagram account and started to share interesting things that she had found out researching restaurants, shows, etc.  in the city. After two months, she created the website. Now, she also produces customized itineraries in partnership with her sister, Renata. She sends a questionnaire to her customers and develops a New York itinerary following their interests. Below you can check a little bit  of what she told me about the Big Apple.

The best of New York?

It’s a big city where everything happens, but it still has great life quality. We can go to the park and take the subway without problems.
