15 Ways to Seize the Day in NYC

#carpediemnyc

How can you make the most of your life in NYC?

Eventbrite recently did a study of the “Most Carpe Diem Cities in America”—the cities where people “seize the day” and grab hold of new adventures. That got us thinking: How do New Yorkers make the most of their day-to-day lives?

With the constant hustle, sometimes basic life in NYC seems like a feat. But, in a city with so much to offer, it’s the experiences in life and the people we share them with that brings us happiness  at the end of day.

So, here are 15 great ways to Carpe Diem in NYC right now—pick one, and thank us later by sharing your adventure with us at @briteNYC!
