Talks With Theresa Marie: Exploring Your Own City Part 2

Back in February, I wrote the part 1 of this post. Little did I know, that was actually going to be a part 1 of anything. I have lived in New York my entire life, and have yet to explore everything I should have by now. Exploring your own city is something I believe to be extremely important. There are so many hidden things about a city that you’d never know by just living in it, you have to explore it. Part 1, was about exploring the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA). Part 2, is going to be about Central Park.

My day started at Penn station. Elisa and I got off the train, and walked down to the subway. We took the C train to 96th street and walked to Bareburger on Columbus Ave. Once we got our lunch to go, we walked back to 96 and went into the park. We ate our lunch on a rock in the shade and it was beautiful. In case you’re wondering what we ordered for lunch – Me: Beyond burger(vegan) without the vegan mayo, Elisa: Buttermilk fried chicken with lettuce and queso fundido on a brioche bun.

After lunch and a little impromptu photoshoot, we were on foot in the park. We walked the entire park (minus the blocks above 96th). Central Park, is so beautiful and so big. By the end, my feet were on fire lol, totally worth it though. Seeing how many people go to Central Park on a random Thursday was really exciting. There was so much happening, the weather was beautiful, all the runners were out, the bikes were out, even the street entertainment was awesome. It was one amazing day.

The performers were so good that I want them to preform at my wedding lol, whenever that happens. I need a man and a ring first haha.

We ended the day, walking on 5th and ended up in Zara. The most dangerous store in the world. We each spent more than we should’ve, but like it’s back to school shopping right? Lol, totally not a valid excuse when you’re in your 4th year of college.

Overall, the day was a 10/10. Explore your city and see what you’ll learn about it. I learned that NYC isn’t just traffic, loud noises, etc but, it’s a beautiful chaos.


Hello loves! My name is Theresa Marie. I am a 21 year old college student, living in NY. I love iced lattes, animals, the fall and winter seasons, fashion, beauty, diys and food!
I started this blog in January of 2017 so that I can share the things I love and have a place for my passion of writing. Theresa Marie Daily (TMD), is a place of comfort, where you can come for recipes, beauty tips/favorites, see my personal style, fashion tips, lifestyle tips/tricks, diys, and other miscellaneous posts. I have a category called “Talks With Theresa Marie” (TWTM), where each month, I post about an occurring issue, or something random that I just feel like talking about, and I give my opinion/view on it. TWTM, gives you a personal insight on who I am and my beliefs/opinions on certain things. I hope to inspire each and every one of you to go outside the box with your food, lifestyle and personal style, and just enjoy life. Thank you so much for following along and reading!
