Who am I?

My name is Tara and I’m the person behind New York City Inspired. I have been madly in love with NYC since my first visit at 18 years old. After my first visit, every vacation I ever wanted to take was always to New York. I couldn’t get enough. So much to see, experience and taste, how could I ever see it all? Every time I went I dreamt of calling it home one day. 13 years later I now live in New Jersey not too far from New York City and get to visit all the time. It’s amazing. Every time I see that skyline in the distance my heart beats a little faster and I can’t wait to walk the streets I adore so much. New York City is filled with inspiration. The people, the buildings, the energy is like no other place. A city filled with so many different dreamers, the dream is contagious!

My husband and I live in New Jersey with our 2 dogs Oscar & George (named after George Steinbrenner- yes, we are Yankee fans!)
