SoHo Neighbor and Black-Owned Business Walking Tour
As a couple of travelers from Colombia and New York, we absolutely love exploring new cultures and experiencing the best that each city has to offer. We both have a passion for art, museums, and events related to fashion, and we are always on the lookout for new and exciting things to see and do. We particularly enjoy visiting some of the world-renowned art institutions in New York City, like the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), and the Guggenheim Museum. Each one offers a unique and fascinating collection of art from around the world, and we could spend hours exploring each one. As fashion enthusiasts, New York Fashion Week is always an event we look forward to. We love seeing the latest collections from some of the biggest names in fashion and being surrounded by other fashion enthusiasts from around the world. We also enjoy checking out other fashion events throughout the year, like sample sales and pop-up shops. Given our shared concern for the environment, we're also excited to attend Climate Week in New York. This annual event brings together leaders from around the world to discuss climate action and sustainability initiatives. It's a fantastic opportunity to learn about and engage with climate-related issues, and we're looking forward to attending. Overall, as a couple who appreciate art, culture, and the environment, New York City is the perfect destination for us. We love the energy of the city and all the incredible things there are to see and do, and we can't wait to explore more.
