I finally made it over to Hudson Yards - hightailed it up to the tip-top of the Vessel, (took lots of photos for friendly visitors to the city), and learned about important sustainability efforts on #GlobalHandwashingDay (which happens to be today!).
@hiltonhotels and their partner @clean_the_world have recycled and redistributed more than 10.2 million new bars of soap to 127 countries to help those in need - contributing to a 60% reduction of hygiene-related illnesses to date.
Their Soap Museum is open all day tomorrow - with a live soap carving and impressive three-dimensional soap sculptures display of typically extravagant items illustrating the true value of soap as a life- saving necessity - that must become accessible to everyone, all around the world. More on stories!

With so many new and fun spots opening all around, which one is your absolute favorite and where is it located? 😲💕
We were absolutely thrilled when we heard that NYC was getting a brand new tourist destination in 2019! 🤩
The Vessel - It is the center piece of Hudson Yards, a recently developed district in Manhattan. The structure stands out from all the high rises around it because of its unique copper color and modern architecture. It has endless stairs going up and down, and all around! It sorta resembles a bee hive with its hexagonal pattern and people buzzing about it. 🐝 .
TRAVEL TIP: Entry to this massive structure is free but you do need to sign-up for a slot online. Do so in advance so that you don’t have to wait for too long!
The view of the Hudson River and the railway lines is just one of the many perspectives you get to see from atop. It is an absolute must visit so make sure you add it to your next New York trip! 👻
Sure, the trains don’t run on time, there are rats in places where there *definitely* shouldn’t be rats, the streets smell like garbage, and a 200 foot box on the fifth floor with no elevator will cost the same per month as a five-bedroom house in Kentucky.
Millions of people will travel in 2020 to #nyc and visit the World Trade Center. They will look up amazed and take a bunch of photos of the building and surroundings. But for millions more the #wtc will remain a silent backdrop of their everyday lives.
I took this photo with those thoughts in mind. Just another day waiting in line for the bus. It’s a reminder to stay curious, to stay motivated, and to enjoy what we can while we can ✌🏼

“My favorite thing about New York is the people, because I think they’re misunderstood. I don’t think people realize how kind New York people are.” – Bill Murray
