Around NYC with Irene

Youtube Channel - Around New York with Irene

Hey Guys & Girls!

I'm Irene, a guide in New York, and in this section of the site, you will find my Blog on the Big Apple from food, restaurants, shops, culture & art to anecdotes and everyday life in NYC.

For our international travelers, I've also recently launched my YouTube channel "Around New York With Irene by NewYorkWelcome" where I will take you around discovering the Big Apple video after video (for now the Videos are in Italian with subtitles only, hopefully, they will be available in English as well soon!)

If you want to know more about NYC and the USA from how to organize a trip to how to live the city as a local, where to eat and shop, art and culture, discover all its hidden corners and gems, and everyday life as seen on countless TV-series and movies ... Here is the Blog for you!

Irene was a FANTASTIC tour guide! She was so knowledgeable about the area and was so patient with all our questions. We stopped to use the bathroom and we got coffee halfway through, she was so kind! It was a pleasure learning about Brooklyn from you!
