Welcome to Pretty City New York! We all know New York City is the coolest city in the world, but also the most beautiful! Our team of editors are going to start sharing the best of the best New York content with you.


Why is New York The Greatest City?

We scoured the web for some of the best articles, highlighting the top reasons.

From Thrillest, “In New York, people will tell you 35 is the new 25. That probably has something to do with the fact no one (aside from investment bankers and rich kids) can afford to buy real estate or have kids. But guess what? That doesn’t stop the Big Apple from being the best city in the world for young people!”

From Timeout.com, “Narrowing down to 50 the reasons we love New York City was a difficult task—inevitably, some of the things that make Gotham great were left out. But here you’ll find a curated list of facts that prove NYC’s civic superiority, spanning everything from our superlative pizza and our expansive arts and culture scene to our place in history as an incubator of innovation, be it architectural, technological or sartorial.”

From Deadspin, “If you’re in your 20s and you don’t really give a shit about being broke, New York is the place for you. You can find good cheap food. There’s ALWAYS someone around to drink with. There are 50 million things you can do, all of which you’ll reject because you’re lazy. And the city has that fabled energy that draws people in. It’s one giant spotlight shining in the sky.”

From Huffington Post, “It’s one of the world’s most popular tourist destinations. And for good reason. Manhattan and its neighboring boroughs are home to some of the world’s best restaurants, museums and attractions. But New York is not just a destination. It’s also a home. For more than 8 million residents, the city does sleep.”
