I had never seen the infamous Instagram angle of the Manhattan Bridge in person. My directing partner and I had just left probably the best meeting we'd ever had in our lives. We hailed a celebratory Uber back home. Two blocks into the drive, we passed the iconic spot and I asked the driver to pull over. He laughed as we snapped away with our iPhones, surely not the first time he'd seen this scene unfold. There really was something spectacular about it in person. 103 years of concrete and steel towering over you as a reminder of the tiny place in history you hold as another creative in NYC. Humbling as it was, it felt good to finally feel like we joined the ranks. – @marcus_tortorici #WhyIRide
One of the biggest benefits of using a service like AirBnb is that they support their users all the way. Not only do they help find affordable accommodations, but also equip the individual with the tools to feel like a local! Whether its the hottest local restaurants or the best hair salon, AirBnb has you covered.
If you love AirBnb as much as the next guy, make sure you follow their Twitter account to stay up-to-date with their emerging tech capabilities! As a startup, there are constant changes in website design, application user experience, and the need to remain current with new Apple products.
