Patty: Do you smell that?

Mette: Hmmm…yes.

Patty: It smells putrid.

Mette: I think New York City smells like old cheese.

Patty: And yet, people love it.

I love it. I love the dirty, crowded streets and over paying for food at Dean & Deluca. I love wandering aimlessly past inner city gardens and interracial couples. I love being suckered into attending sub-par comedy shows and wasting into the night talking to strangers. I love the mom n’ pop shops, the crude bartenders that know your name and the abundance of public transit. New York City might smell like old cheese but it offers something few other cities in the U.S. are able to dish out—curated experiences.

In this week’s series of posts–Steal with Pride: Notes from a weekend in New York City–I plan to discuss the value of some of the curated experiences I came across on my trip and why we should bring them to South Florida.

Stay tunned for more on:

  1. Indie Book Stores
  2. Bicycle Lanes
  3. Community Gardens
  4. Park Services (Chess, reading centers and more)
