"My year in NYC" New York City by barryg23

New York City Travel Guide: 15,917 reviews and 32,120 photos

Welcome to my New York Page

I was lucky enough to live in New York for a year while studying at New York University. New York is a wonderful city and I have so many memories and tips I want to share!

My Neighbourhood

I lived on West 3rd Street in Greenwich Village. This area is dominated by New York University - it's a great neighbourhood and I couldn't imagine a nicer place to live.

Central Park

Now that I've returned to Europe I'm really starting to miss many things about New York (ooh what I'd do for a Deli sandwich). I really want to return here - alas, when I have the money I never seem to have the time, and vice versa, but I will be back here soon!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Where do I start - I love this city
  • Cons:Cost of living - how did I spend so much :-)
  • In a nutshell:A city everyone has to see!

    Buddy, I was rolling along just fine, digging your page until I came across your New York Yankees tip. Yuck! Nice page otherwise.

    Hey, just wondering if you DID know what the 15 digits on the Union Square South building are. In case you didn't, it's a clock. I live on Union Square West, literally on the park and I watch the clock from my window. :-)
