The idea of a "flâneur" was first conceptualized by the French poet, Charles Baudelaire, and further expounded by philosopher Walter Benjamin. Loosely translated as a "stroller," the flâneur makes observations of his or her city, gleaning revelations on its inhabitants and its culture.
I'm a 20-something-year-old girl living in New York City. This blog is a simple passion of mine to cover all the amazing offerings of the city, which range from the physical forms of music, film, fashion, and food, to the intense emotional elements of personal growth and experiences that I couldn't have anywhere else. I want to distill the essence of the city.
