Hi! My name is Daina, and I am the midwesterner turned New Yorker behind New York State of Mind. I have lived in New York City for almost ten years, and find myself falling more and more in love with this amazing place every day.
There are so many things I love about New York. The winding tree-lined paths in Central Park, the historic buildings, the Brooklyn Bridge, the iconic Nathan's hotdog... the list could go on and on. But what I love most about the Big Apple is its indescribable energy. It is fast-paced, noisy, gritty, and bright. And regardless of how long you have called this place home, it always managed to surprise you. I love wandering the city streets discovering new shops, restaurants, bakeries, buildings, and parks. This city literally energizes me. It has opened my eyes to so much, and for that I will always be grateful.
New York City is absolutely beautiful. It will forever be one of my favorite places.
If you want to follow more of my adventures in the Big Apple, stop on by my blog!
I am still looking for people in several states to guest post for my 50 Nifty United States feature. Please click here to see if your state, or one you've visited/lived in, is still available!
