Thousands Have Visited Sag Harbor… Why Not You?

My name is Vanessa and I have lived in Sag Harbor, New York for four years. I have lived in the Hamptons my entire life. I grew up in neighboring East Hampton.

Women should consider visiting Sag Harbor because it is a quaint but upbeat town that offers almost everything to suit your taste, style and budget. The daytime is soothing and the nightlife is lively, with events happening around almost every corner, from weekend farmer’s markets and craft shows to gala events on the dock and restaurants open past 12am.  Sag Harbor offers some of the best boutique shops and eateries on the east end.

A Must-Taste New York Food Guide by Kirsten Alana

It’s the most populous city in the U.S.

With a population of 8,336,697 and over 40 million visitors per year, New York City is a global hub of business and commerce, banking and finance, world trade, transportation, real estate, theater, fashion, art, and the list goes on.

There’s some damn good eats!

New York food is influenced by the city’s immigrant history.  European immigrants made the city famous for bagels, cheesecake and New York-style pizza.  But today, the options are endless, from Classic American food served at dinners and coffee shops to over 4,000 mobile food vendors slinging falafels, kebabs, hot dogs and pretzels.

And Kirsten Alana should know.

Kirsten lives in Queens and is a photographer and travel writer following her passion for food, art and culture around the world and shares her insider tips in this New York food guide…
