Instagram has changed the way I approach living in New York City. I spend a ridiculous amount of time exploring the app and discovering the best dishes to eat, coffee to drink, places to see, and things to do—not to mention the creative inspiration gathered in the process.
I love exploring New York. Though I am a nostalgic being who owns a vintage typewriter and a record player, I love that twenty-first-century technology has given us the ability to enhance our interactions and explorations. Instagram is a great tool for expediting the discovery process.
I’ve curated a list of what I have found to be the 10 Best Instagrams for Exploring New York…
Let’s start with the most important matter:
In my last post about bulletproof coffee, I mentioned Greecologies in Little Italy, a place where I can get a lot of work done in addition to great coffee. This Instagrammer creatively shares her discoveries of all the coffee shops and public working spaces you’ll find in New York. It’s where I discover most of the places I love and work from.
I follow way too many foodie Instagram accounts (wait, is there such a thing?), but these are the two that often make me stop scrolling, double tap, and immediately head over to Yelp to create a new bookmark.
