Brad Ogbonna - New York

I am a 23 year old camera-operator and story-teller, originally from Minnesota, but I now live and create in New York City. My stee-lo is to record the world around me - mainly the interesting people and places that I encounter.

Taqueria Tepango (Restaurant)

New York by Brad Ogbonna

I probably frequent here twice a week, because I am obsessed with Mexican food, and I'm fortunate enough to live in close proximity to this place. Taqueria Tepango is definitely a sapphire in the rough since there are a lot of terrible/over-priced Mexican restaurants in NYC.

Address
Taqueria Tepango | 568 Myrtle Avenue, Clinton Hill | NY

Lit Lounge (Bar)

New York by Brad Ogbonna

Grimy, dark, cave-like scenester bar where debauchery is the norm - depending on the night and who's dj'ing. A lot of fun to be had here though nonetheless.

Address
Lit Lounge | 93 2nd Ave | NY

Dee & Ricky’s (Restaurant)

New York by Brad Ogbonna

My friends, Dee & Ricky, recently opened up their own restaurant at the ripe age of 24 in the Clinton Hill neighborhood. I stop in here every now and then for the roti. Also, there's a really cool (Nigeria-owned) sandwich & smoothie spot next door that is not pictured.

Address
Dee & Ricky's | 503 Myrtle Avenue | NY

Ikea Ferry (Attraction)

New York by Brad Ogbonna

An awesome, and sometimes free, ferry that links Manhattan at the Financial District to Ikea in Brooklyn via Red Hook. Very great views of the city and if you end up having to pay it's redeemable for a monetary discount towards an Ikea purchase. I think of it as a treat and an investment.

Address
Ikea Ferry | Pier 11 or 1 Beard Street, Red Hook | NY

Franklin Avenue (Place)

New York by Brad Ogbonna

I like my street because there's always some character strolling down it like so.

Address
Franklin Avenue | Franklin Avenue and Quincy | NY

Coney Island (Beach)

New York by Brad Ogbonna

I like coming down here with friends when the weather permits and drinking on the beach or on the rocks when the tides come in.

Address
Coney Island | Brighton Beach, Brooklyn | NY

Chinatown (Area)

New York by Brad Ogbonna

Manhattan's Chinatown is my second favorite neighborhood next to Fort Greene. It's full of people, odors, bars, clubs, cafes, and restaurants. There's always something going on here.

Address
Chinatown | Hester St & Eldridge St | NY

My Rooftop (Place)

New York by Brad Ogbonna

This is the rooftop of my building. I come up here daily with my dog or friends to get 'fresh' air, see what's happening in the streets, or to catch sunsets and the occasional sunrise. My landlord has been trying for months to put a stop to our rooftop access, but every attempt he has made thus far has been futile.

Address
My Rooftop | Franklin Avenue & Lexington Avenue | NY

Dumbo (Area)

New York by Brad Ogbonna

Dumbo, which stands for 'Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass,' is a neat neighborhood in Brooklyn that is at an awesome vantage point of Manhattan. There are cool rocks on the shore of Brooklyn Bridge Park that are fun to relax on and sneak alcoholic beverages.

Address
Dumbo | Main St & Water St | NY

MTA (Place)

New York by Brad Ogbonna

The oldest, best, and probably dirtiest underground train system in the world. 24 hour service that links me to anywhere I want to go in the city.

The Cage (Place)

New York by Brad Ogbonna

A legendary basketball court in the West Village that is a popular destination for basketball aficionados, deflated hoop-dreamers, and gawking tourists.

Address
The Cage | West 4th St. & Avenue of the Americas | NY
