5 Places to visit NYC for free and for the great photos

If I say NYC is full of wonders it will be an understated statement. Every time I visit the city, something new awaits to surprise me. Whereas this multifaceted city is considered one the most expensive city in the world, there are so many things in the city that you can do without spending a penny and experience the quintessential NYC vibes. 

Here you go 

Central Park - Don't know how many years I have been visiting Central Park. The quaint and lush green park in the spring and summer, vivid leaves in fall, and solitary winter every season is special visiting this park. I love the contrast of the park and how the skyscrapers on the backdrop and the wide greenery spread across amidst the hustle and bustle. Not just tourists but New Yorkers find solace in their claustrophobic city life. Jog, walk, picnic, or inhale the fresh breath of air the answer is central park.  There are numerous viewpoints, lakes, bridges, gardens, terraces, sculptures you just name it. 

Brooklyn Bridge - This hybrid cable-stayed/suspension bridge is the iconic site of NYC. Walking in the city overlooking the manhattan and Brooklyn skyline is a surreal experience. Featured in numerous movies and photographs this bridge is easily any traveler's favorite attraction for decades. Visiting the bridge in the morning as early as possible is a good idea to escape the crowd. 


Pier 1 Park - Without vising Pier 1 Park, your visit to NYC will be incomplete.  The stunning and twinkling views across the East River of Downtown Manhattan including the Brooklyn Bridge and the Statue of Liberty from a distance in the evening is an unforgettable experience and it is beautiful any time of the day you visit. This 85-acre park is 1.3 miles long and taking a  walk you will always come across so many beautiful yet hidden spots. 

Dumbo - (Down Under The Manhattan Bridge Overpass) A up-close view of the iconic Brooklyn bridge and surrounded by industrial-era buildings and skyline this place is ideal for sipping a cup of tea or coffee or grabbing a sandwich in the nearby cafe.  

Washington Square Park - Popularly known as a park for people.  Located in the Greenwich Village neighborhood of lower Manhattan the best place to watch people with plenty of benches to sit and admire the architecture and enjoy the music performances played by musicians.

My favorite pieces of Assamese Traditional jewelry

My grandmother's thuria, age-old and heirloom jewelry, of course, not part-able         A piece of jewelry echoes a region's rich heritage, aesthetics and sensibilities and Assamese jewelry does not differ from that. A piece of jewelry not just enhances the wearer's beauty but identity as well.       A land of flamboyant rivers engulfed in exotic flora and fauna, birds, musical instruments Assamese jewelry is highly inspired by that. Sharing a few assamese pieces of jewelry from my personal collection.       An Assamese bride's dress up is incomplete without Assamese jewelry. Traditionally Assamese jewelry is purely handmade. The main frame is made out with 24-carat gold and lac is used as a filling material. Stones are studded on the top.  The creatively and meticulously studded stone craftsmanship resembles with pomegranate seeds. The color and texture of the stone are opulent and lurid just like pomegranate. Nowadays imitation Assamese jewelry are als

Keeping it simple-random things about me

Hello my dear readers, how are you all doing? Summer vacation has just started here on the east coast. My kids are having a gala time. I can't tell you how time is flying. My time is all occupied by them. Taking to them, playing with them, take them to the library, reading stories and most importantly cooking their favorite food. Hence thought, I'll keep it simple and straightforward. It has been more than a year now, and I have shared so many things about my life, travel, fashion, etc. Today I'll share a few random thoughts about me. 1.

My favorite outfit - In western I love to wear a crisp white top and blue jeans. I know very casual. In Indian, I love sarees. Mostly, I love handwoven and handwork ones. I love salwar kurta too. You will find more solid colors then prints or patterns in my wardrobe. 3. Am I fitnes

Bartaco, West Hartford , Connecticut review

It was a usual February day, the chill felt like tucking in the furry comforter and stay cozy at home. But, the matter of the fact was that it was my birthday  and my family wanted me to take out for dinner. I was reluctant and wanted to stay at home. My little one was after me and I couldn't say no. I had no clue where we were heading for dinner and then here we were at the Bartaco. Vivacious Bartaco instantly took away my winter sluggishness. With a gracious greeting, modern contemporary laid back sitting and a bit of hustle and bustle made me alive in the winter freezing February.

As a sober, I chose housemade pomegranate lemonade and hubby got grapefruit ginger juice. I never had pomegranate lemonade before, I must say it was one of the coolest and refreshing lemonade I have ever had. The tint of lemonade not just took the look but
