About me

I am a happy, glass half-full kind of guy who has fallen in love with New York and I want to share this amazing city with everyone! I work in finance in a job I really enjoy but in my spare time I love discovering new places and trying out the myriad of restaurants that never stop popping up. I know the best places to eat and also a number of really cool bars so if you want to see more than just Times Square then I'm your man!

My name is Mark, I am originally from Massachusetts and moved to and made NYC home 2 years ago. I have lived in Brooklyn, Manhattan, and Queens. I work in a medical office as well as work in real estate. In my 2 years living in the city, I have had an amazing time exploring this great city and everything that it has to offer. I have enjoyed all the restaurants (and trying new foods), exploring the amazing sites (empire state bldg, statue of liberty, ground zero, museums, central park, times square, top of the rocks; to name a few), took an amazing boat tour around the city, took a trip on horse and carriage through central park, attended Broadway and off Broadway plays! Its been an amazing 2 years and still discover new and exciting things everyday! I am Adventerous and love trying new things! and love meeting new people!
