7 trending spots in New York City

New York is the city that never stops reinventing itself. I always say that the Big Apple is the kind of place you don’t visit only once in a lifetime – and this is because of the diversity of things that exist to be done here. The city is different every season and there is always something new opening up: an attraction, a shop, or a restaurant. And those who follow me know that one of the things I like to do is to search for new places around here. So, I loved when Expedia Brasil invited me to tell you a little bit about the spots that are pumping around here.

Now, let’s check out 7 trending spots in New York City!
