  1. Thanks so much for watching folks! Sorry for the shameless plugs! If you’re interested in more stories about my trip, from the finances to my top recommendations, read my blog about it here: And if you fancy purchasing something from Gaston Luga, you can get 15% with my discount code ‘BIRKHOLZ’ here:

    Okay sorry for all the shameless plugs haha! Have y’all been to NYC? What do you think of it?

  2. The memorial park is very moving, Stonewall slightly creepy because it’s so tarted up. It looks as if now it would throw out the ‘low lifes’ who went in the 60s and started the revolution. Don’t worry about the morals of sponsorship. I’ve never been averse to a big plug…

    1. I had a good chuckle at the last part of your comment Peter hahaha. I miss you greatly! Thanks for the lovely comment. I totally know what you mean about Stonewall, I’ve heard as much from locals.

  3. It is fun that you are visiting the USA for the Christmas & New Years Holiday season and I am going to wing my way to Caerdydd to visit my family in Cymru and have a very Blwyddyn Newydd Dda!

    1. Thanks for your comment! This was actually a trip over Thanksgiving – I’m in London over Christmas / New Years. Lovely that you’re headed back to Cymru though, that’s great! Nadolig Llawen!

  4. Good afternoon Bradley – great job on your video!!!!!! I grew up above NYC near the beautiful Hudson River Valley, so have been to the city many times. One of my favorite memories is a chocolate tour where we spent the day going to the wonderful chocolate shops in SoHo. Also, i have a favorite place in NYC – Wave Hill. It’s an amazing place.

    I love your travel vlogs, and do wish you a very blessed Christmas in every way. Thanks for sharing your amazing talents with us.

    1. Thank you! One of my favourite spots in NYC was a chocolate place actually, perhaps it was one of the ones you went to as well. I’ll have to check out Wave Hill next time! So glad you like my travel vlogs, and I hope you have a wonderful Christmas too. <3

  5. Bradley, I love one of your videos about being gay after you went to my hometown here in New York City for awhile, so I’m proud of you for being my idol!!!

  6. I would also like you to look up the CBS mourning show today fri the 20th.about the fifth grade boy the was bullied by his teacher because he was adopted by two gay men and how 2 girls in his class stood up for him it happened in a Utah school the teacher was fired it made me angry I cried but in the end happy. Please see it and let me know your reaction.

  7. I’m glad you did a vlog in new York was born there grew up in south philly so funny I was just there 2 weeks ago.hit some jazz clubs and of course fantastic Italian food .Its so nice of you to share and see you enjoying you travels here always enjoy seeing you .as always much love and success to you Bradley.

    1. Oh no way! Thanks Jon! I went to some Jazz bars there too and they’re delightful. Thanks so much for the lovely comment!

  8. You have every right to keep as much of your travel private and your own as you want. What you’ve given us here is lovely and does truly give the flavor of New York City – I especially loved your choice of music for the montage in the middle. Even though it has been probably 25 years, give or take a couple of years, since the last time I was in Manhattan, it’s always been a city I love to visit, and I hope to get back there at least once more in my life. Usually my visits there have been theatre related, but there are other things about the city I love as well, including the food , the museums, and the energy of the place.

    1. Thanks Lane! I really appreciate it, and glad you liked the music! 😀 I have a lot of fun researching music for videos. Yeah, it’s definitely a great place to be for you as a theatre performer!

  9. Happy Aloha a Friday, beautiful person! Hold up, you didn’t open your video with your Bradley “beautiful people” opening! Hehe. K; time to watch the rest of this 9:54 video.

    Wow, I didn’t even recognize that Dork for some reason! Hehe. I love that girl’s energy’s 😁

    PS – Yay! You sad it. 😍

    1. Haha I know, it’s because I originally wasn’t going to make this video so I didn’t have a planned intro lol! It feels so weird not having it in there! Yeah, Ava’s wonderful! So talented as well.
