The Best Hotel in NYC
Ranked as the best hotel in NYC by US News and World Report the Beekman is blocks away from the iconic Brooklyn Bridge, City Hall as well as the 9-11 Memorial. While the rooms are vintage themed, the hotel has many of the present day luxuries that you look for including complimentary Wi-Fi as well as large flat screen TVs in every room to relax and unwind with. This hotel has amazing 5 star food from two renouned restaurants that are in the hotel. For those not wanted to go far for a little nightlife, the hotel also has a lounge/bar which has various live bands as well as DJs.
I’ve been running competitively since high school where I was on the track team at Xaverian High School in Brooklyn. My fondest memories are of cross country races in Van Cortlandt Park in The Bronx, as well as indoor races at The Armory in Manhattan. Several years ago I decided to improve my health so I “started over”, by first running 5K races as well as more extreme challenges like the Spartan Race. After these early challenges I felt mentally and physically ready to tackle my ultimate goal of running in the NYC Marathon. I have yet to snag a spot by lottery, but I’m hoping that 2019 is my year. In the interim I’ve completed the Brooklyn Half Marathon, strengthening the personal bond I feel with my home borough. Two charitable foundations that are very important to me are the American Cancer Society, as well as Connor’s Cure. Whether it’s a young child or the elderly, no one should have to be in the battle to survive alone, and by hopefully raising funds for these charities, the money could go a long way in not only finding treatment for those who face the uphill battle, but to also one day find a cure.
