We are thrilled to kick off a new series here on My Life: Around NYC with Ali Ro. New York is a crazy, thrilling, and inspiring city that we love to call home, and we think our new arrivals are more than up for the challenge! Whether you’ve visited a thousand times, never been, or live here, we are excited to share some of our favorite hot spots, hidden gems, and neighborhood styling inspiration. Please share your favorites in the comments, on Twitter, or Facebook!
First up we’re heading to the west side for a Play Date in Chelsea! Chelsea is the funky neighborhood tucked between the Meatpacking District and Fashion District. With plenty of shopping, art galleries, and even the city’s fashion universities, we picked our boldest print to strut the streets.
While in Chelsea be sure to walk the city’s famed High Line Park. This gorgeous park offers one of the best views in the city, and now has snack spots from some of  the city’s best restaurants.  Take a break from the heat in one of the neighborhood’s countless art galleries, or drop into the FIT museum.

Up tomorrow: How to style this flirty dress for a day or night in Chelsea!
