PortableNYC is about fascinating stories that make skyscrapers look a bit taller, hidden spots – remarkable, and drinks that come with a chaser of NYC history.

My blog is about New York City’s spots which I love the most, from famous landmarks to local bars.

Like most true citizens of this fantastic city, I wasn’t born here. I wasn’t even born in the United States for that matter! But hey, about a third of New Yorkers weren’t born here either.

I fell in love with New York the moment I set foot here and I moved to the area the first chance I got. It’s been over 20 years now.  I love this city so much that I became an NYC tour guide.

What I love about New York is its unique energy, its ever-changing streetscape and absolutely fascinating and inexhaustible history.

I hope to share it with you!
