Producer & Travel Content Creator Welcome to my second printed edition of Passport In Photos. I founded the travel content site PassportInPhotos.com in 2018, where I share my advice on the best places to eat, things to do and where to stay around the world. I hope to inspire and help you explore places maybe you haven’t thought of visiting before through my carefully curated list of personal recommendations. In this edition, I share the best of the city I live in - New York City. PassportInPhotos.com @karenagomez @passportinphotos

New York, NY

There’s no place like it in the world. A city that is ever-changing and on the move, yet manages to keep a sense of “same”. Unique for so many reasons, what I love most about NYC is its diversity of people, cultures and cuisines - an entire world at your fingertips every day. Ask any New Yorker, he or she will tell you their list of go-to favorites. Here’s my (personal) guide, which includes old and new. Whether you’re a tourist visiting the Big Apple for the first time or a local looking to try something different, I hope this guide about the place I call home will offer you something new in New York City. 2
