I’ve had the channel for a while, not really quite sure about which one I would focus my efforts on all this time. Yes, I have had the channel, the Gmail account and the domain name because I took them before others could think about using the ID. Way before blogs and vlogs were commonplace, I chose Pinay New Yorker as a monicker because I was literally one- a Filipina who was a New Yorker. While I’m usually shy about branding my web presence with an actual photo, you will find my likeness on the page, just so you don’t get confused with the other accounts that go with a number or other extension.
I’m trying to drum up content for starters and racking up the required watch hours and subscribers. It is not easy to get monetized on YouTube but I thought it was worth a try, given that I’m always documenting this dynamic city I live in. You can never really run out of content here in the city that never sleeps.. it’s a matter of organizing it and getting it out there.
So let me keep this short and introduce you to one of the newer clips I’ve uploaded featuring a place I literally walk into every day I’m at work. Unlike the other clips where I had not really put in captions, I thought I’d play with this one a little and give you my personal recommendations.
Grand Central Market isn’t really a place that many people seek out, despite the huge volume of foot traffic in the terminal itself. I like that it’s not that huge of a place and it has quite an interesting mix of establishments which are not your run-of-the-mill variety. if you’re ever in the neighborhood, this is one place where you can literally pull together things you might need in a dinner for two or a party of friends. From the flowers to the appetizers and main dish and of course, dessert— these stores will be able to give you what you need.
I love it for its visual delight and the atmosphere is just so homey and welcoming. Come visit when you can.
