Also New York is very niche when it comes to our kind who knows what we like. I don't visit many of the stores because many of the stores don't have what I want. There's about to be a new Arc'teryx store, that's some s*** that I'm into. I always hit up Dover Street market. Of course you got nepenthes. Just search for brands you like and New York City..
Flower shop is cool
Most of the spots are young, but Les or Lower east side has most of the dope bars you actually enjoy and get a vibe without having to suffer around motherfuckers doing to much, and you can visit them in a radius. @nolitadirtbag on Instagram be listing a lot of the cool spots, especially his earlier post. But my ultimate favorite shit is keeping it cheap with the cheap eats from a couple slices, Chinese food, halal spots and carts(blessed by God) to deli's,and just vibing out, if your vibe is Right Niggas will fuck with you no matter who or where you're from or they are from. Hit up empire cannabis club for the good smokes, I recommend the grapefruit Durban.
Again I recommend clandestino for the ultimate finisher of the night, after all of the seeing what's happening spots you hit up. Surprisingly a lot of English expats or citizens hit this bar up often. I think I've even met a fuker there (a non-contributing one obviously)
Hoity toity shit isn't New York, from fine dining to all the other stupid shit that people who aint from New York do (of course New Yorkers are doing some upscale shit and doing all of the stupid corny expensive shit), or people who think they're doing something (money waisters) do. The grime is the best part of New York city, from a harlem-born kid.
If you're not exhausted from a day of vibes and walking, you didn't really enjoy New York City.

Also as a Harlem kid, I don't really fuck with any of the other boroughs like that, so I can't tell you how gentrified Brooklyn or the rest of them garbage ass boroughs are. Money making Manhattan where you can just walk to the next spot and turn up, unlike the rest of the boroughs.
The model who used to be the main dude for Bedwin and the Heartbreakers has a bar named la Noxè where I took a fit pit there. It's in a Subway. He used to own kinfolk. Jey Pierre. Excellent cocktails, crazy vibes, great music, extremely super small spot.

NYC is an outside city. It's not about spending money as much as it's about being everywhere, from high(expensive) or low. Most people just hang out on their block or in their neighborhoods rich or poor. So only money waisters and non-new yorkers be doing the Michelin star shit, hell Michelin is a fucking rubber producer. Get in the streets.

any recs for family friendly hotel in central london?

Thinking of a family trip to Italy in the summer and travelling around a bit. Rome for a few days then travel up the country stopping off at places for a couple days and maybe ending in Milan. Is that something that can be done easily/not cost a fortune? Or should I just book an all inclusive in Tenerife and remove the stress? Kids are 9 and 10.

Any recommendations for Nice?. Will have a car so can travel a little outside of the area. Cheers
