Hither & Thither takes us on a personal tour of New York city...

All photographs and words in this guest post by Ashley & Aron Bruhn of Hither Thither People often ask us what they should see or do in New York. There are so many iconic sights--it is hard to know where to begin--and so we usually leave destinations like Ellis Island or Times Square to the guidebooks. And we travel, for better or worse, we have a tendency to sacrifice some of those big-ticket items on the chance that we might inhabit a place as a local for a time: have a drink in a hip neighborhood, or shop at the local markets.

With those things in mind, here is a New York that might appeal as much to tourists as to locals. These are a few of the things we love best about the city; this is how we would visit the city we live in. Over the next month, I hope that we can see it together...
