Photo Diary / nyc on 35mm

It's probably my hundredth time saying this but what's one more time... New York City is my favourite place. I understand why people say it can feel claustrophobic, but it's just never felt that way for me. Somehow it feels the opposite? To me it feels like the lovely way stepping off a plane in a hot country and feeling the sun hit your face feels. With so many people crowding every street and subway carriage it's definitely hard to find a quiet moment, but I love the pace of the city and how I feel in it. Need I even mention all of the amazing food?! In this post I'm sharing some of my favourite film photos that I took around the city, from cute cafes to pretty streets.

one for brunch : jack's wife freda

Food was definitely a huge part of this holiday. Seriously... there was so much eating to stupidity, justified by 'sure who know's when I'll be back? Better try one of everything'. No regrets obv.
Jack's Wife Freda is somewhere I wanted to try for a couple of years and it definitely did not disappoint! Their menu has something for everyone, I ordered the rosewater waffle and it was divine. We sat outside which was also great for dog watching, fyi.

*other places I loved : champs diner, two hands, beyond sushi, by chloe (THAT mac & cheese), joe's pizza, screamer's pizza, the smith

one for magazine lovers : mulberry iconic magazines 

So much inspo in one small space, this convenience store in Soho is a fashion & art lovers dream. With an extensive collection of fashion, interiors & hard to find international magazines from all over the world, you're sure to find what you're looking for here and discover a lot of new gems too. It's a lovely spot to pass some time if you want to take a minute out from the crowds, they're really friendly in here and let you take your time looking through everything!

one for an afternoon pick-me-up : urban backyard

I mean, just look at how cute this cafe is! Absolute decor goals right there. I came across a photo of Urban Backyard on Instagram a few months ago and practically screeched with excitement, immediately saving it to my must try list. Urban Backyard is situated in Nolita and would such a cute place to meet up with a friend for chats. Great coffee, great plants, great insta #content, what more could you want?

one for food & view lovers (everyone) : smorgasburg

I may have been far too overwhelmed by all the food choiceto take any photos...
 Smorgasburg is an open-air food market held in Brooklyn every weekend between two locations. Over 100 vendors and so many options for every taste, including lots of really delish looking vegan and vegetarian options! We visited the Williamsburg Smorgasburg, held on the waterfront at East River State Park. We went on our last day in the city and the weather was unbelievably hot & summery, so as you can imagine - the fab weather mixed with that dreamy skyline view of Manhattan made it even harder to pack up and go home that evening. Totally recommend Smorgasburg especially if you're with a group!

Hope you enjoyed looking through the photos, it was so nice to get my film camera out again and waiting for the photos to come back gave me something to look forward to during the post-holiday blues. See you again soon NYC!
