About Mary

graffitiI’m Mary, your four-eyed window into the world of New York City and beyond. Thought you should know first off that these are real glasses. Ok? I’ve been wearing glasses since I was 4 years old, so I’m REAL. Not like those hipsters with their fake no-lens glasses.

I live on the Upper West Side, work in the travel industry, freelance for a few lifestyle magazines and things I love include the same things you love; eating, exploring NYC, traveling, writing, taking pics, cooking, cookies, cats, reading and the show Chopped.

I’ll be your view into the life of a New Yorker – from where to eat that’s cool without breaking the bank, what to do for free on the weekends, how to decorate your apartment on the cheap, where to go for a special night out, where to take the family when they visit. Hope I can sort through all that is New York, and tell you the most worthwhile places to go and things to see.

Whether you’ve lived and worked in New York for years, or you’re thinking of making a move, feel free to ask me anything! Follow me on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or Follow my blog with Bloglovin, or feel free to contact me via email at MaryinManhattan212@gmail.com.



  1. Hi Mary, after awhile now I am following you. Your introduction sounds interesting. Although New York still far from my bucket list, I am still interested in seeing New our through your lens and your narration. 🙂
