When I’m short on ideas for the week’s #onethingoneweek, I do one of two things. Sometimes, I immediately get on Google and search up interesting locations to go to or interesting things to do. More often, however, I get on Groupon and see what I can find. Sometimes you get great finds like today’s deal on Bouldering. $32 gave me two full days of bouldering fun, and this is day one.
NYC, it’s a big place. You’ve got tons of people from all over the world, all spread out among different neighborhoods. Some neighborhoods are rich in a certain group, every street infused with their spice, their culture. Some neighborhoods look a bit rundown, yet oh so full of life. Others are busy, full of expensive name brand stores, yet devoid of life. Sometimes, two different worlds are just a short walk across.
This week, I took part in a ghost tour around Greenwich Village. The company offering the tour was Boroughs Of The Dead, a “tour company devoted to strange, dark, and macabre tours of New York City.” Our tour guide, Andrea Janes, is the founder and owner of Boroughs Of The Dead. Her knowledge of New York City history and her animated, creative storytelling made the whole experience one to remember.
