Today more than 8 million "New Yorkers" live in the five boroughs of the large island city. The city’s diversity and vibrant intellectual life, makes the vast city our nations cultural capital. Many of the tourist that come and visit the city hit all the must-sees – the Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty, Central Park, the Metropolitan Museum of Art – very few then explore off the beaten path with visits to The Cloisters or one of the city’s libraries. I encourage anyone to indulge in the bohemian shops of the West Village or the fine dining of the Upper West Side. The bustling marketplace inside of Grand Central Station gives you a literal taste of the best the city has to offer! All of which give an interesting out look on the life of a "New Yorker".In honor of the city Loose Petals is offering $5.00 off any non-sale city organic print size 8 x 10 or larger for the month of January 2017!
