YOU’VE GOT LOCATIONS: A GUIDE TO ROMANCE MOVIES FILMED IN NYC

Set the scene. Valentine’s Day has passed and you just watched all of your favorite Meg Ryan romances. From Sleepless in Seattle to You’ve Got Mail, you’re considering dropping everything to become a writer in hopes that your very own Tom Hanks will find you.

While the chances of that happening are slim, reenacting your favorite movie scenes in the places they were shot may fare a better chance. If you’re a vina living in New York City, you share the same home as just about every romantic film you can think of. So why not go live out your own romance for yourself?

You’ve Got Mail (1998)

Courtesy of IMDB.

Starring Meg Ryan as Kathleen Kelly and Tom Hanks as Joe Fox, this film fixated on a 90s version of Tinder is a classic. Shot almost entirely on the Upper West Side, New York vinas can visit the small bookshop Kathleen owned, which is now a cleaners, to the cafe where Kathleen nearly got stood-up by Joe.

  • Kathleen Kelly’s Townhome: 328 W 89th St. (Manhattan)
  • Fox Books: 115 7th Ave. (Manhattan)
  • The Shop Around the Corner: 106 W 69th St. (Manhattan)
  • Cafe Lalo: 201 W 83rd St. (Manhattan)

Moonstruck (1987)

Courtesy of IMDB.

This film gave us the romance we didn’t know we needed between Loretta Castorini, played by Cher, and her fiancé’s brother, Ronny Cammareri, played by Nicolas Cage. After an initial meeting that was the least bit eloquent, Loretta’s fiancé becomes an outlier in her love life.

  • Castorini Townhouse: 19 Cranberry Street (Brooklyn)
  • Cammareri Bros Bakery: 502 Henry St. (Brooklyn)
  • Grand Ticino: 284 W 12th St. (Manhattan)

When Harry Met Sally (1989)

Courtesy of IMDB.

No relationship screams “it’s complicated” like the one between Harry Burns, portrayed by Billy Crystal, and Sally Albright, portrayed by Meg Ryan. The pair’s romance, or lack thereof, had a rocky start and their coupling was but the least bit predictable outside of the film’s title. Nonetheless, the pair ventured all around New York City in some notable, and others more subtle, locations that a vina must check out!

  • Katz’s Delicatessen: 205 E Houston St. (Manhattan)
  • Jess and Marie’s Townhome: 32 W 89th St. (Manhattan)
  • Washington Square Park: Washington Sq. North & 5th Ave. (Manhattan)

While there are numerous places you and your vina gang can visit, this is just a start! Spice up your 9 to 5 life and live vicariously through some of your favorite characters.

VINA STORY: HOW HEY! VINA HELPED INSPIRE TWO WOMEN TO CREATE BRUNCHITUPNYC

In a city of millions of people, it may seem rather frustrating to feel alone. But, the truth is, it’s not as abnormal as one might think! Searching for friends with the same interests and values as you is a tough task, but the girls at BrunchItUpNYC have made it a little bit easier for us vinas.

Molly and Leyssa are two 20-somethings who decided that they wanted to foster a girl gang for other vinas who may have felt alone in the sea of people in NYC.

“It’s so important to have a group of girls you can rely on,” they said. “Whether it’s for a much-needed girl talk, or a night out partying, we all need a solid support system!”

And they gave us just that! BrunchItUpNYC was created by these powerful vinas when they felt there was a genuine need for a consistent meet-up event where girls could feel comfortable coming alone to make friends.

Your 20s may feel like a strange period in your life; you might witness others your age getting married and starting to have kids while you’re popping Cheetos in your mouth and watching the season finale of The Bachelor. If you maybe feel as though you fit into the latter category, perhaps this brunch-bunch is made especially for you.

“A lot of us actually are not very new to NYC, but are looking for friends that want to travel, explore and live life to the fullest,” Molly and Leyssa said. “Most of us are in our mid 20s, and a lot of our friends are settling down or moving out of the city.”

Molly and Leyssa at their second BrunchItUpNYC event.

This makes BrunchItUpNYC so impactful and special for vinas. Their first brunch meet-up created on the Hey! VINA app consisted of nine other girls who instantly hit it off. “We talked about our interests, our lifestyle, our goals and somehow we all were just on the same page! We’ve already planned a girls trip to New Orleans next month. I think our group is going to stay close forever!”

No initial awkward silences took away from the fun. The girls played games like “Never Have I Ever” to get to know each other and loosen up, which made for exciting conversations!

The creators of BrunchItUpNYC were able to use Hey! VINA to invite more vinas to join them.

“We heard about VINA through a friend and decided to give it a try,” they said. “VINA provided an amazing platform to promote our brunch meetups on, and the girls on VINA are friendly & looking for fun activities, so it was easy to get a group of them together!”

As for making friends and meaningful connections online, Molly and Leyssa have some advice:

“Don’t be nervous!! Everyone on VINA is looking to meet friends, so everyone feels those nerves in the beginning, but you will end up with amazing new friends, and it will be so worth it!”

Join @BrunchItUpNYC on Saturday, February 16th from 1:45pm-3:30pm for their Galentine’s Day brunch in NYC! And if you’re interested in perusing more events such as this one, check out the Hey! VINA app to meet other like-minded vinas and to create that girl gang of a lifetime.

Q&A WITH BOSS BABE SHANNA TYLER: HOW I STARTED LIVING THE LIFE I WANTED TO LIVE

When VINAZINE was introduced to all-around boss babe Shanna Tyler, we knew we had to give her all the VINA love. The yoga instructor, life coach, blogger and podcaster has overcome some dark times in her life to get to the inspiring path she’s on. Read on hear her advice, her big goals for 2019, and what her ideal VINA date would be!⚡️

Q: On your blog, you’re very open about a painful time in your life when you were depressed. What inspired you to be so honest and raw upfront? Can you tell us about that time of your life and how that impacted you?
A: Yas! I love to lead with the darkest period in my life, which was when I was diagnosed with major depressive disorder in 2014. I was involuntarily hospitalized for my suicidal ideations. Ain’t nothing more RAW than that!
I always had an underlying sadness about me. Something that just didn’t feel right. But in 2014, I believe I really hit my edge. I wasn’t living a fulfilling life at the time. I moved to a new state, worked a job that didn’t make me happy, and felt really lost in what I wanted to do with my life. I had no hope. I called my mom and she took me to the hospital who made it mandatory for me to go to an inpatient facility.
My experience was terrifying at first. I had no phone, no computer, nothing but my thoughts, my peers and my supports (therapist, psychiatrist, counselors, etc.). However, I will say it really helped me to grow as a person. Group therapy, individual therapy and prescription of Lexapro really got me ready to go back out into the world. I left with a newfound confidence in my life and hope in my life that I can find what I love!

Q: Why was it important to you to start the conversation on mental health?
A: It’s so important to me because I believe our mental health struggles are ones that we stay so hushed about. Part of my personal goal is to keep it really real on topics that we, especially as women, don’t talk about. One of the biggest one is our minds. We fear being seen as vulnerable or weak, but us being open really does the opposite. It empowers us! Let’s share our stories, seek treatment and then uplift others!

Q: How did you start to pick up the pieces? What really helped you to find YOUR happiness?
A: I had to look for the pieces for a long time before I could pick them up. Trying out so many things helped me find out MY happiness. I tried out so many avenues before I arrived at my current career as a full-time entrepreneur and life + biz coach supporting entrepreneurial women to build their brands and businesses. I pursued a social work degree just to realize half-way through the program that it wasn’t what I really wanted. I became certified in yoga to realize that I don’t want to teach full-time and want to teach part-time and on my own terms.  I hosted monthly events only to find out that I wanted to host only one annual event and launch my podcast. It all took discovery and finding the pieces then picking them up, putting them down and finding what fits!

Q: So many women can relate to this feeling of being lost and not knowing their next step. What is your best, most practical advice?
A: If it’s career-wise, I will say find out what you love. That thing that you really love to do. It doesn’t even feel like work sometimes. Then make money off it 🙂

Q: How did you start carving out the career you wanted?
A: I love this question! I started trying out so many things like I mentioned above. I also never quit, I just molded and transformed my career into something that was fun and profitable! I tapped into my strengths which is supporting other women and walking along with them on their journeys. I also tapped into my gift of gab with a podcast. Events were beginning to drain me and teaching yoga more than three to five times a week was too much for me. I still love these things, but they’re not what my career is based on. I’m a life + biz coach for entrepreneurial women and the community founder and podcast host of The Self Soul Sport Podcast. WOOT!

Q: For women who want to start a blog or a podcast, but have no idea how to start, what’s your best advice?
A: With both a blog and podcast, start brainstorming what you can talk about without hating it. Cause at the end of the day, a blog and podcast are all about passion. It’s going to be a labor of love. You’re gonna have your momma or bestie as your only reader for a while before it really takes off (unless you have an established audience already!) Once you find what you want to talk about, get a Squarespace website up, take about an hour on your website, and create your first blog post. Google, ask friends, network with other bloggers you look up to, so many tips!

My podcast was pretty easy to launch because I already hosted community events and had an audience with my blog! I shared it in my newsletter and my Instagram feeds. It really did well! I also will say it’s so helpful to have guests who share with their audience who become listeners!

Q: Love that advice. So what made you want to be a life coach?
A: The Shanna from three years ago is my inspiration. When I started my personal brand and website/blog in 2016, I was so lost. I didn’t know what my brand was, who my audience was, how I wanted to proceed, what I wanted to do in the future. I truly believe if I had all of that together in 2016, I would’ve propelled faster and smarter in my biz. So that said, I want to really inspire the woman who is lost and looking to build something but not sure what yet.

Q: What do you offer clients?
A: I offer 1:1 coaching sessions for side-hustlers, those who have side-hustles, and new entrepreneurs. In these sessions, we work on building a foundation for your brand, monetizing your brand into a business and much more. It’s so much fun and I love what I get to do every day. I’m also working on my group coaching program that I’m so pumped to launch this year!

Q: For anyone who is feeling down, depressed or uninspired, what can they start to today that would help them?
A: Gratitude journal! I will say this is a huge game changer for me. Grab a notebook, write down 7-10 things you’re grateful for and repeat it every single morning.

Q: What are your big goals for 2019?
A: 1. Publish and sell my very first e-book. 2. Create online courses for my audience. 3. Launch my very first Get It Done Program for entrepreneurial women.

Q: Lastly, tell us your ideal VINA date?
A: Wine, tacos and laughter!!

Use Shanna as your inspiration to get yourself out there! Join Hey! VINA today and start meeting your tribe in communities like Entrepreneurs or Yogis. Start living the life YOU want to live—VINA is here for the ride!✌️
