April Events + NYCity on You-Tube & Pinterest (04/06)

Covid-19 has required some changes for the time being. Stay Safe.


For the month of April we are going to try a different format – on some days we will go visual and offer a selection of the very best NYCity Instagram photos, YouTube videos, or Pinterest Pins. On other days you will find info on the Best NYC Restaurants or Top OnlineTravel Forums with NYC info. We hope you will come back often to see what’s cooking here. Today it’s NYCity on You-Tube & Pinterest.


There are some very fine YouTube videos and Pinterest Pins that cover New York City and are endlessly fascinating. Here are some of my faves:
