Introducing me, and a blog.

NEW YORK, New York --

Live from New York… it’s me! Your online best friend who knows a little bit more about the city than you do, because it’s her job.

As the NYAP blogger, I’ll do events, spend money and get lost in the boroughs, so you don’t have to!


For I, Betty Ton, am the ever energetic, courteous, polite and helpful girl. But there’s something about this city that makes me want to to break out of my shell. I hope to explore more. Discover more. Communicate better. Try new things. Make new friends. To be the confident, charismatic and assertive person that I’ve always imagined my young-adult-self to become.

Which means, I’m going to go out and do things, report local and national issues, give advice, then share them with you!

I’m a self-proclaimed:

  • pop culture junkie
  • foodie
  • feminist
  • newsie
  • explorer
  • optimist
  • “yes” woman

I plan to cover pop-culture and entertainment, events, life-hacks, food, gender, and social justice issues.

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve used the notorious “Live from New York” line--forgive me. On top of blogging, I’m interning at Saturday Night Live and applying to graduate schools for an M.S. in Broadcast Journalism.

If you have places you’d like me to explore, let me know! Maybe we can check them out together? Leave me a suggestion and let’s chat.
