Westville Is The Best Place To Eat Like A Local In NYC

This article could easily be about the best hotdog stand or dollar slice spot, but if you're looking for that, my brother can help you. I'm talking about the most insta-worthy, cute location where you can actually get real food, even if you're a picky eater like myself.

While I was born and raised in good old New Jersey, a piece of my heart has always been in New York City. With constant trips to my favorite place in the world, I eventually was tired of eating places made for tourists. Nothing feels more insulting than your waiter asking, "So, where are you guys visiting from?"....Like, do I look like I don't belong here?

I will admit, 99% of the time I am going to the Big Apple, it's to see a Broadway show, so I don't really want to travel far out of the Times Square area. That really leaves you with limited choices outside of places like "Hard Rock Cafe" or "Bubba Gump" (which are both awesome and if you have not been you totally should go). After once or twice those can get old and turn into unnecessary dollar signs.

After trial and error for years, I finally found "Westville" and I promise you, you will never want to eat anywhere ever again. "Westville" is the cutest, little, casual American dining spot that will fill you up and not break the bank!

The aesthetic of this place is so pleasing to the eye with rustic vibes that suit the fact that the restaurant supports farm to table eating as well as simplicity at its most delicious.

You can get every meal of the day here and none of them will disappoint! For someone like me, finding a trendy restaurant where I can still get something I'm really going to enjoy is nearly impossible and that's what makes "Westville" so special! I've never once brought someone here that hasn't enjoyed it!

While there's one right in Hell's Kitchen, there are also six other locations throughout Manhattan and Brooklyn, so wherever you're next NYC adventure takes you, "Westville" should definitely fit into your plans!

Black Friday is back to being Black Friday

This year, malls are standing up against Black Friday beginning on Thanksgiving. Doors won't be opening until Friday morning.


Last week my twitter feed was full of exclamations of how excited people were that our local mall, Westmoreland Mall would be closed on Thanksgiving Day this year. For those who work during the busy holiday days and hours, a celebration was in order. For the die-hard deal finders and shoppers though, they didn’t seem very happy.

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

There's been a recent boom in the popularity of vintage style looks and up-cycling thrifted finds to sell at, usually, an outrageous price. Is this ethical? Or does it defeat the whole purpose of thrifting in the first place?

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

One day, I was scrolling through Twitter and came across a tweet about upper-middle-class class people thrift shopping. I personally was against the up cycling/re-selling trend because I thought it to be greedy. Then, I began to see more and more tweets, and then stated to see ones about those who buy thrifted, name brand items and sell them for what they're actually worth instead of the very low price they got them for.

Holidays With the Family?

Should retail outlets close on holidays so their employees can be with their families?


For the past few years, having stores open on Thanksgiving has become a popular trend. The sales have started earlier on the day known as Gray Thursday. Now, the Mall of America has taken a bold stand and is closing its doors on Thanksgiving. They are very excited in giving the day back to their workers so they can spend time with their family.

Black Friday: Explained

Time to question this unofficial corporate holiday.

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.

#OptOutside This Black Friday

I am opting to go outside this Black Friday, and I hope you do so as well.

Ross Woodhall

The day after Thanksgiving has always been regarded by many as the beginning of the Christmas season. While not a federal holiday, many people take off work, spend time at home with their families, and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season. This Friday off turned into a prime opportunity to begin the never-ending chore of Christmas shopping. Soon it became one of the busiest shopping days a year, which companies capitalized on by bringing the best deals of the year to this day we know as Black Friday.
