Our ‘I Love New York’ Series features artists in the country music community taking over our Instagram Story each week to give us the Top 5 Things they love most about New York City.
This week, singer-songwriter Brandon Ratcliff took over to give his Top 5 Picks in the personalized videos here on Instagram Highlights plus a rundown below. Brandon Ratcliff recently released his debut EP, Sometimes, Always, Never. Check out our full First Impression Review of the project here.
#5 – The Energy
Brandon Ratcliff kicks off his Top 5 Picks with a big shoutout to New York City’s ENERGY. “New York is the city that never sleeps and that’s the reason why I wanted to go the first time, because it felt like a party that I wanted to go to.”
#4 – The Architecture
Next up, Ratcliff includes New York’s architecture in his #4 pick. “New York is aesthetically beautiful. I love flying into New York. I love seeing New York from all angles.”
#3 – FOOD
“Number three is going to have to be food,” Ratcliff confesses in his number 3 pick. “Specifically, pizza and bagels. New York introduced me to bagels and spoiled me on pizza forever.”
#2 – Walking
Including walking in his # 2 spot, Ratcliff adds “I love walking and one of my favorite things about New York is you walk everywhere.”
#1 – FOOD.
Brandon Ratcliff’s #1 Pick for his Top 5 Things he loves about NYC in our ‘I Love New York’ Series is: New York City’s Attitude. Ratcliff says, “It’s a tough town and coming from a small town in the South, where Southern hospitality is a huge thing, New York couldn’t be any more different than that. But it makes you tough and if you can make it there, you truly can make it anywhere.”
