I saw many lifestyle videos from my favorite social media influences in LA and London. I thought it would be a cool idea to show people the beauty of the East Coast, specifically the city we all know and love, New York. I wanted to create a video showing inner city females as the face of this beautiful city and have the viewer follow us on a normal Saturday. Coincidentally, everyone involved in the video is from a different borough, I’m from Brooklyn, William, the videographer, is from Harlem, Kenia, one of the models, is from Queens, and Jennifer, the other model, is from the Bronx. We all met in high school, The High School of Fashion Industries, in Manhattan, which is the heart of New York for us!
In this video we take you to two main places where we often hang out, which are Soho and Dumbo! Soho is great for shopping! There’s a lot of clothing stores and boutiques next to each other which makes shopping easier. We love to use the ShopDrop Sample Sale app to tell us when there are nearby sales!! Living in New York is very expensive so we love deals and sales, especially when it comes to clothing!! They also have a great $2 pizza place called “Champion Pizza” that we adore! Later on in the day we went to Brooklyn Bridge Park in Dumbo. It’s actually one of my favorite spots in NYC and in the summer they host a lot of events! On the off season, which is now, it’s just a great place to hangout at. From the park you can see the Brooklyn bridge, the Manhattan bridge, and the beautiful Manhattan skyline that features the Freedom Tower. I have so many memories there, just sitting by the rocks and talking to my friends about life and our dreams. New York City is such a phenomenal place and I loved showing it to people from our point of view!
