Why you love the places you live, in your own words

Last week, I put out a question to you, dear readers: Why do you love the place you live?

I got to wondering about the idea because of the recently released results of a Gallup survey called “ Soul of the Community ,” which shows that people feel attached to places primarily because of qualities like beauty and social openness, rather than more hard-edged economic factors.

The response from you was immediate and tremendous. You sang the praises of cities and farms and towns and the middle of nowhere. What I read from you all really moved me. Thanks for opening a window into your lives.

Here’s a selection of your responses, edited for space and clarity:

My hometown is the best. We are located in the Black Hills of South Dakota in a small valley with mountains on three sides of us. We have an awesome view and one of the best canyons in the world. Our local creek, Spearfish Creek, freezes from the bottom up, and we hold the record for the most extreme temperature change. This town is Spearfish, S.D.

I love Durham, N.C. , because it is a small town with a passion for all that is homegrown, sustainable and community-oriented. We are famous for innovation and entrepreneurship, our foodie culture, and our amazing art and music scene. It’s got a rich history and is also a bit rough around the edges. As one Durham resident puts it, “If you don’t like living next door to witches or Hindus, people with black or brown faces, kids with spiky purple hair, or gay folks who are firmly out of the closet, this is definitely not the place for you. Because Durham is for the rest of us.”

— Crystal Dreisbach

There was a classic old T-shirt that came out of one of the more horrific periods of the city’s history that explains my sympathy — if not love — for Cleveland. It showed the skyline of Cleveland, buried in snow, with the simple message, “Cleveland: You gotta be tough.” Against all odds and any sense of reason or logic, I find the ethos expressed in that T-shirt to be appealing. Especially in the face of all we are going to be hit with in the future, I think that ethos will get us through better than “Kumbaya” ever will.

I love Lake Erie. A lot of people do, and they crowd the lakefront parks to get their fix. The metroparks surrounding the city are an asset, even though they are run by a bunch of golf addicts whose idea of nature is the 15th hole. In spite of this numbskull mentality, there are still plenty of areas in the system that are worth hiking and biking through.

It is a gritty place, but when you get tired of the grit, it is easy for you to escape to some really bucolic places in upper New York State and Canada. So that is why I like this tough city.

— Randy Cunningham

Sure, those greenbelts and trail systems thread their way through a sprawled-out wasteland of box stores and strip malls; driving habits are terrifying (we go for manly vehicles in lieu of drivers’ ed — or common sense); mass transit is nearly nonexistent; the earth is flat and cooling (so I’m told); and it’s generally a Guns, Trucks, and God social climate. But I still keep meeting other crazy backcountry skiers, winter bike commuters, even the occasional wild-eyed treehugger. It doesn’t hurt that local beer, food and music are excellent when the weather isn’t.

— snowchicken

Certainly your attitude about where you live makes a huge difference. Even when I lived in sprawling south Florida, I managed to find the sweet spots. But it irritated me to no end to have to drive through hell to get to my favorite hiking trails. Finding those spots now is not quite so challenging. We moved to Brunswick, Maine .

What needs some serious attention in Maine? Mass transit. But I think when you can manage to look around you at least once a day and think, “Man, I am so grateful I live in such a beautiful place” — well then, you scored.

  • View of Manhattan and the Hudson River from my living room window.
  • Density — the opposite of sprawl. Each human takes up less acreage.
  • Living in a high-rise means we get to meet congenial neighbors. And we also get to kvetch about those other neighbors that sometimes put their garbage into the recycling boxes in the compactor room.
  • Walking distance to stores, restaurants. Easy neighborhood for bicycling.
  • Walking distance to the local marina and sailing club. Sailing along the Hudson, in view of Manhattan.
  • Extremely short walk walk to PATH trains into Manhattan, and Hudson-Bergen Light Rail.

I live in a rural area on California’s central coast, in the Santa Lucia mountains . It’s beautiful country, especially in the spring, with a great variety of wildlife, including mountain lions, eagles, (golden and bald), and even a few condors! My family is privileged to live on a piece of property with a good well, so we can grow a vegetable garden, and fruit trees.

We also have a wonderful and diverse selection of neighbors and a community hall, where the locals have potlucks, concerts, yoga classes, and an informal little farmer’s market.

The ecological downside to living in a rural area is th is: In order to work, shop, or even get together with friends, you generally have to drive. “Neighbors” are much farther apart here than they would be in town. But there’s always a trade-off somewhere — some of us are city people, and some of us just aren’t city people, and I fall into the latter category.

— Storm Dragon

I know the way to avoid the 101 when it’s insane, and the 87 when it’s slow. I know the way to the giant purple building downtown with the museum where children are encouraged to touch. I know the way to find the best place to watch the banks of the might Guadalupe River when it’s been raining and swelling and attracting ducks and herons of all types.

I know the best way through downtown to my classes at San Jose State, the one I called “my goat path,” which takes you past a great coffee shop, through the convention center, and into the park with the giant sculpture of the Feathered Serpent. I know the way to the best public restroom, where the doors extend almost all the way to the floor and there’s classical music playing.

I know all the ways around the city: north from the Alviso Sloughs with its old ghost town, and south to the Santa Cruz Mountains with the windy, forested roads. East from one sacred mountain, Mount Hamilton, and its neighborhoods of excellent bahn mi sandwiches, to the other sacred mountain in the west, Mount Uhmunum, which means “Resting Place of the Hummingbird.”

I know the way because this is where I was born and raised, and no place will ever feel more free, more alive, or more home than here.

— Eliza Thorn

Where to start? Had you asked me this six months ago I would have laughed hysterically. However, Memphis, Tenn. , is really coming around. We just had a seven-mile trail added to our already huge urban park trail system. This trail gets you virtually anywhere in Memphis by bike no matter where you are. I am happy to say that once spring hits I will be what we call spittin’ distance from four huge farmers markets, all complete with CSA opportunities and good organic meat. I can’t be too dishonest and pretend to love the city as a whole, but I feel like it’s cleaning up, and that’s what I love.

— Hannah Giles

I was just thinking how amazing London was yesterday on a brisk wintry walk through the narrow streets of “The City.” The place is oozing history, yet glowing with modern intervention, a dynamic mix of architecture, people, music, ideas, expression, spaces, cultures, and cuisines.

I’m always fascinated by the numerous squares and wide open parks. In some you can’t see the immense city that surrounds them. In some you can even see deer, whilst the bustling streets lay only hundreds of yards away.

What is it without the people? The way people can still have regard for each other (most at least), although they are among tides of millions. A desire to improve, to change, yet a strong sense of tradition and custom. Passion, styles and opinions collide, yet an overall sense of conduct prevails.

The issues for me are that it is spread out, forcing me far from work just to be able to live in a small apartment, and pretty expensive.

Miami’s the only real immigrant city in the world: meaning immigrants get the chance to truly run the place.

Given the rate of change in the world, we need the lessons of Miami: how to welcome the different, not just into low-paying jobs and poor neighborhoods, but right into the halls of power.

— Albert Harum-Alvarez

People, people, people are what attach me to a place.  Why do I stay in New York City ? — because of my friends, and also because of all the interesting people I bump into on a daily basis. All of my communities here — my bed-bug-ridden building, my congregation, my neighborhood, my daughter’s school — are full of the most entertaining, thought-provoking, moving characters. Would this be true anywhere but NYC? Maybe, in other giant, world-class cities, but it’s hard to imagine this variety and richness of humanity coexisting anywhere but here. Every day I have some unexpected and fascinating conversation. This is why I love NYC.

— Sam Maser

Baltimore is a gritty, honest city — but that’s what makes it so beautiful to me. Everywhere you go small groups of people are working on great projects. The city has underground art galleries, collectives, independent bookstores, huge community farm, all created by normal people like you and me. … Yes — there’s poverty, homelessness and more abandoned buildings that you can even count, but out of all that not so great stuff comes a city of people who work hard and do amazing things.

I’m an environmental activist and organizer — but every time I drive into the city on 95 and see the giant smokestacks from the incinerator that says “Baltimore” I get goosebumps (the good kind). And to me that’s how you know you’re home.

— Rachel Fauber

1. As a gay person I wanted to be some place where I was welcomed for who I am, not what I am. I was sick of all the anti-gay politicians and religious fundamentalists in the south. Boulder’s a very welcoming community and wide open to new ideas and eccentricity. It’s very easy to get involved here.  

2. Boulder is located in a dramatic natural environment, right at the literal edge where mountains meet plains.

3. The city’s built environment is attractive, with a very vibrant downtown, no billboards, a 55-foot height limit, attractive streetscapes, strict development controls, and attention to detail.

4. The city is compact and surrounded by about 150,000 acres of greenbelt acquired over the last 45 years by the city and county governments. The city’s crown jewel is that open space, and the recreational opportunities it allows, along with wildlife habitation protection and land leased for organic farming and ranching. 

5. The presence of a major university (CU) helps attract creative people and assists with the arts and cultural scene and the healthy economy.

6. Boulder’s in the forefront of research on climate change, the “green” economy, alternative transportation and community sustainability. It also puts great emphasis on sidewalks, bike paths and lanes and public transit.

7. Being 45 minutes from central Denver allows one to live in a smaller community while having easy access to the amenities of a large city.

I hope this doesn’t sound too much like a chamber of commerce spiel, but I certainly found Boulder to have been a great choice for my “second life.”

Every person’s heart holds a special place for their hometown. It is the place where we first opened our eyes to the world, learned our first lessons, and made our first friends. This essay provides a glimpse into the quaint town that I call home.

Geographical Setting

Nestled in the heart of the country, my hometown is an amalgamation of urban and rural landscapes. It is a place where the serenity of the countryside meets the hustle-bustle of city life. The town is surrounded by lush green fields, while the city center is adorned with historical monuments that stand as a testament to our rich cultural heritage.

Challenges and Opportunities

However, with the advent of digital technology and the government’s focus on rural development, there is a renewed sense of hope and optimism.

My hometown, with its unique blend of tradition and modernity, has shaped me into the person I am today. It has taught me the values of unity, respect for diversity, and the importance of hard work. Despite its challenges, it continues to inspire me with its resilience and spirit. My hometown is not just a place on the map; it is a feeling, a memory, a part of who I am.

As the spread of COVID-19 consumes our lives and workplaces, it is during a time of crisis such as this when angels appear out of nowhere and answer the call for help. The town of Moulton, with a population of roughly 3,200, is home to two locally-owned businesses that have teamed up to do something incredibly worthy for healthcare professionals.

Red Land Cotton, manufacturer of bedding and towels from cotton grown on the family farm, and Southern Sewn partnered to produce face masks for the University of Alabama at Birmingham.

Six years ago, International Paper shut down its operations. The ramifications of the closure affected not just the 1,100 displaced workers, but was a blow to the school system and the local government that relied on IP for revenue. Today, the town still struggles, but as Alabama’s health care system is stretched to its limits, these two Moulton businesses have stepped up to help in the COVID-19 fight.

My husband and I both grew up on a farm and have always been country at heart. We had a handicapped child who could not attend school where we lived because she had to have help that was not offered in the small school at that time.

My husband got a job in the city where they had a small class for handicapped children. We moved and stayed in the city until he retired.

We moved to the town of Trinity and love it. My husband has since passed away, but I feel safer and more a part of the community here.

It’s very quiet and peaceful. Even the police and maintenance services are better. The real bonus is having an amazing church family and good caring neighbors. So blessed to live here.

Our city of Red Bay has much to brag about. Located in northwest Alabama, it’s named for its red clay banks and its bay trees. It’s a special place to live, work and play.

Arbor Day is celebrated annually, and Red Bay’s Garden Club members take pride in the beautification of our city. One member of the club has transplanted bay trees from the woods for special occasions.

Visiting Red Bay, you’ll meet the nicest people. You’ll be treated like somebody. We believe and know that everyone is somebody. Wherever you reside in Alabama, it will be worth your trip to visit beautiful downtown Red Bay!

Editor’s note : The most humorous submission we received was from Robert Quattlebaum of Dothan, who included a photocopy of an old letter to the editor in the local newspaper.

Quattlebaum writes: “My hometown, written many years ago. Don’t know the author but it’s an interesting read. Funny too!”

The unsigned letter was apparently a response to a previous article that poked fun at the little town of Malvern, and the writer was suitably aggravated. He or she noted several points that prove Malvern was superior to Dothan, its larger neighbor to the east:

“Malvern has less juvenile delinquency than Dothan. … No infringement of the law was existent during the Christmas holidays, and none is expected for the remainder of the year. … Malvern has produced three professional prize fighters, all having fought in Madison Square Garden (names on request) … Malvern is in the process of paving the main street, and citizens there have not experienced any difficulty in getting to and from their homes and businesses. Compare this, Mr. Editor, with Dothan. … Malvern has had no lawsuits, or any pending, caused by hazards and un- safe condition on streets and sidewalks.”

“So you can observe from these facts that Malvern is not as small as it once was and considerable credit should be given.”

No doubt, the editor was suitably chastened!

6. Coffeeville

i love my hometown essay

My hometown of Coffeeville is special because what it lacks in population, it makes up for in courage, character and hospitality. The relaxed culture can be a welcome change for some, while also being a humble beginning for others. I am grateful I had the opportunity to grow up there, surrounded by family who instilled values such as integrity, accountability and respect that I can now pass on to my children.

Coffeeville is located in the southwest corner of Alabama. It is known for its hunting and fishing and has the third largest lake in the Black Warrior and Tombigbee system. It’s on the state birding trail, and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers operates and maintains a modern campground located just two miles west of town. About 25,000 campers from all over the U.S. visit the park each year.

No matter how far I may travel, Coffeeville will always be “home.”

Liza Pugh-Nicholson

7. Union Springs

i love my hometown essay

To those who call it home, Union Springs is the center of the universe. Not only is it geographically located among some of Alabama’s best cities, people everywhere seem to be connected to it by relatives, friends or events.

Union Springs is located in Bullock County, whose history is rich in hunting and outdoor activities. It’s home to two national bird-dog field trials and is a mecca for hunting and fishing.

The area also offers theatre and art. In its 17thyear, the Red Door Theatre produces multiple shows a year, all Southern in nature. The theatre annually welcomes over 2,000 guests. The city’s downtown is home to five original murals celebrating the area’s history and culture.

History lovers will find 45 buildings located on the National Register of Historic Places, as well as one of the first public gardens in the U.S.

This center of the universe is my hometown, loved by its residents and welcoming to its visitors.

Midge Putnam

My hometown is the unlikely place named Leroy, in Washington County. It is a spread-out community (if it was all pushed together it would be much more impressive looking). It has a lot of farming area, but most people work in the nearby chemical plants and paper mill.

Most importantly, it has some of the most wonderful people you would ever want to be around. When anyone loses a family member or has any kind of trouble, so many people are there to be with you.

Our school’s sports teams have won numerous state championships, of which we are very proud. We have churches that are blessings to our area.

I love Leroy, and anyone would be lucky to live here.

How to talk about your hometown in English

i love my hometown essay

Do you know how to talk about your hometown?

What can you say about where you live? How can you describe the town you live in?

This is a very common question in the IELTS test . It could appear in part one of the IELTS speaking test, it could also come up in part two or three.

But despite this being a common topic question in IELTS , I am surprised to find that many English students have so much trouble with it. As if they have no idea about their hometown at all.

i love my hometown essay

In the following guide, I will show you step by step how to talk about every aspect of your hometown no matter what question the examiner asks you.

Let’s get started.

Table of Contents

Don’t Recite Lists!

Many students just reel off a list of phrases without putting any further thought into what they are saying.

i love my hometown essay

If you do this in the IELTS test, the examiner will probably be unimpressed.

I am talking about these kinds of answers:

My hometown is modern

My hometown is famous

My hometown is beautiful

My hometown is crowded

My hometown has many people

This says nothing about your hometown at all!

And it just makes you sound like a robot reeling off recited answers!

So don’t do it.

i love my hometown essay

The examiner wants to hear more than this. If you say your hometown is modern, then describe how it is modern. Tell me about the high-rise buildings and the city skyline. If your hometown is famous, tell me why it is famous. What stories can you tell me that show me how famous your hometown is?

This is what you need to do when talking about the town or city where you grew up.

Talking about the Landmarks in your Hometown

Every town and city has at least one landmark.

i love my hometown essay

Do not say to me that your hometown doesn’t have any landmarks because I will not believe you. There must be at least one. So you can talk about that.

I am from England and these are the kind of landmarks you can find in English towns:

A town hall

A well-known pub (every English town has many pubs)

A town square

A statue or monument of some kind

i love my hometown essay

Once you identify what these landmarks are, then you talk about them.

My hometown has a very old church in the centre. I never go there but I can hear the bells ringing on a Sunday for the Sunday service. There is a cemetery next to the church which always looks a bit creepy at night.

We have a nice library in our town. It is in a nice old building. It’s a great place to relax and read. They have free newspapers too.

There’s a pub called The Red Lion. It’s a pretty quiet place, I think most of the regulars are old men, always complaining about the news or talking about football.

All you have to do about the landmarks in your town is make observations about it — what it looks like, where it is and who visits this place. If you have a story to tell about it that is great.

There’s a shopping centre in the middle of my hometown. It’s kind of boring but me and my friends go there because it’s the only place for us to go on a Saturday evening.

One time we went there, and they had a little show in the middle of the centre. Some local singers who sing in a choir were doing a performance. I think they were trying to raise money for a local charity.

Other landmarks could be:

A shopping mall

A restaurant

A school or university

Spend some time thinking about the landmarks in your hometown. Write some sentences about each one, describing the landmarks in detail. If you have any interesting stories to tell about the landmarks, then write them down too.

Do you like my articles and lesson plans?

Why not join my mailing list and I can send you new articles and lesson plans when they come out?

Join here – ManWrites Newsletter

Talking about the People in your Hometown

The next thing you can do is to talk about the people .

i love my hometown essay

Without people, there is no town so you have to talk about the people.

Think about the following questions when talking about the people in your hometown:

What jobs do they do?

Do they have a special accent?

What kind of things do they like to do?

What do the people enjoy doing at the weekend?

Do they all know each other?

Then you try to answer these questions. It may not come easy, but the more you practice the easier it will become. You just add whatever information you can add about the people in your hometown.

I think a lot of people in my hometown work for Amazon. There is a big Amazon warehouse in my hometown so I think a lot of people work there.

This may be true or untrue, but it is a good answer based on the observations of the Amazon warehouse in the town.

People in my hometown speak with a kind of country accent. The town is in the countryside of England so people sound a little bit like that. The people speak much slower than people from London.

In your hometown, the people may have their own dialect. If so, talk about that.

There’s a very famous rugby club in my town so I think many people support rugby. Whenever there is a game you can hear all the crowd cheering the team on for miles around.

I imagine not everyone goes to the rugby games, but this gives a clear picture of what many people in the town like to do.

I think many people in my hometown like to take care of their garden. I see many people at the weekend, mowing their lawns or pruning bushes in their gardens. It seems to be a popular thing where I live.

You can only give an idea of how you think people spend their weekends. It would be impossible for you to know exactly what all the people in your hometown are doing every weekend!

I think many people in my hometown know each other as it is a small town. It is not like London where no one seems to know each other.

And again, you can only give a very rough impression here. There are some towns where everyone seems to know each other, and others where no one knows anyone else. And in London, there are entire districts where the people have grown up with each other.

You cannot know everything about all the people in your hometown. But you can give an impression based on what you have seen people do.

When introducing the people in your hometown that is enough.

Try to think of answers for the above questions. Write down some sentences about the people in your hometown.

Talking about the Food in your Hometown

This part is very easy.

Every town and city has a kind of dish that is very popular to eat. All you have to do is talk about that.

i love my hometown essay

It doesn’t matter if this food was originally created in your hometown, if the people like to eat it then you can talk about that.

For example, in nearly every English town and city, you can find Indian restaurants. Why? Because English people love Indian food. It is not an ethnic food of England; it comes from India, but when talking about the food in an English town it would be a good subject to use in the IELTS test.

But maybe your town or city does have a unique dish or style of food that originates from your hometown. If so, then you can talk about that.

i love my hometown essay

How to talk about it?

You have to think of the following questions:

What are the ingredients of this food or special dish?

What does it taste like? Spicy, sweet, sour, salty?

Why do the local people like it in your hometown?

Where can I buy it if I visit your hometown? Do people cook it at home or is it only available in restaurants? Or is it a special kind of ‘street food’? Or maybe all three?

Do people eat this food for breakfast, lunch or dinner?

Do they eat in on special occasions?

So let’s use an example that can be found in England.

Fish & Chips.

This is a very popular dish that can be found all over the country. It is not very healthy, but it is delicious and many people love to eat it.

If we go through all the questions one by one we can break down how to talk about fish and chips in this part.


Fish and potatoes. Also, some oil for cooking and you can add salt and vinegar to your own taste.

Often very salty.

Why do people like it?

It’s delicious! Not so healthy but it does taste good. It’s also very convenient to buy.

Where ca n I buy this food?

In the local fish and chips shop. These are small shops that make fish and chips and then you take it home and eat it. Some restaurants make it too. These restaurants are very simple but the food is always good. It is cheap to buy.

When do people eat it?

Usually, people eat it in the evenings. There is a custom to eat fish and chips on a Friday. We always say Fish on a Friday.

You see how simple it is to talk about food in your hometown?

Now you try.

Take all the questions and talk about a well-known or popular dish in your hometown. Just look at all the questions and answer them one by one.

When you have written all your answers down, practice speaking out loud.

Talking about the Culture in your Hometown

Each town and city in every country has its own unique kind of customs. There are special events or festivals that your hometown holds every year and these are part of the culture of your hometown.

i love my hometown essay

Take a few minutes and think about what special events or festivals your hometown holds every year.

What happens at on these special days?

Why do people go to this event?

Is there a historical meaning behind it?

If you get stuck, you can search online and find out what customs and special holidays are celebrated in your hometown or city. Do some research and you will find many examples.

Other things make up the culture of the town or city — the food, the people, the daily habits, the lifestyle. These all add up to create a special culture that is unique to your hometown.

i love my hometown essay

Let me give you an example from England.

Cheese Rolling

In a few towns across England, there are cheese-rolling festivals. This is usually held on Spring Bank Holiday Monday. A big round block of cheese is rolled down a hill and people chase after it. The first person to catch it is the winner.

This is a very old tradition that began hundreds of years ago. Cheese was believed to be a sign of fertility in the springtime so it was important to celebrate it years ago.

Now people celebrate it because it is good fun and an old custom.

Talking about the General Culture of your Hometown

People in my hometown like to drink tea. It is a very important thing to sit down and drink tea with your friends and spend time catching up with some local news.

Tea is considered a very sociable activity so people like to drink tea together.

In my hometown, people like to make apple cider. It is quite a strong kind of beer and easy to make. Many local farms make it and they sell it to the local people.

There is a small green field in my town and people like to sit and play cricket on a Sunday. They have free time to sit with their family and friends. Also, cricket is a very relaxing game, so it is nice to play on a Sunday before going back to work on a Monday.

Think of some local traditions or festivals that take place in your hometown. What happens on these special days? What do people do? What is the history behind it?

Also, think of customs or activities that people regularly like to do in your town.

Write all your ideas on paper and then practice speaking out loud with your friends.

Talking about the Weather and Climate in your Hometown

What is the weather like in your hometown? Is it icy cold in the winter? Steaming hot in the summer?

Are the mornings filled with fog from the sea or is the sky brilliant blue and the sun shining?

i love my hometown essay

Some towns and cities have four distinct seasons, while others have very little difference between the seasons or have only one kind of climate all year round.

No matter what the weather, it is a good idea to try to talk about it in the IELTS test if the examiner asks you about your hometown.

Let’s look at some examples

My hometown is a small town in the north of Thailand. It is always very hot here, usually the temperature is around 30 degrees centigrade most of the year, but in the winter it goes down to about 24 or 25 degrees. The summer is always very hot.

And in the summer it rains a lot. Wow, we get a lot of rain! From around May until September it rains so much. But the rain only falls very quickly. It kind of cools you down a little and then it feels hot again.

I come from Marrakesh in Morocco. It can get very hot in my hometown in the summer. Usually over 35 degrees. In the winter it can go down to around 16 degrees, so a big difference.

Because Marrakesh is in the desert, the difference between night and day temperature is quite big. It can be 35 degrees in the daytime, then go down to 20 degrees at night.

And it hardly ever rains in my hometown. It is usually dry all year round.

My hometown is Stuttgart in Germany. We have four very distinct seasons but the summer is the best season in my opinion. The summer is warmer; the temperature reaches as high as 30 degrees on some days.

In the winter it gets pretty cold, and it rains a lot in the winter too.

Another thing you can talk about with the weather in your hometown is the kind of activities that people like to do at certain times of the year.

i love my hometown essay

Think about each season and try to think of things that people do, the kind of food they like to eat and the clothes they wear.

Look at the table below to help you.

Using the table above and the examples I wrote above, write down some ideas about the weather in your hometown. If there are differences, then write about all of those things. If the weather is the same all year round you have to talk about that.

When you have written some ideas down, practice speaking out loud.

Talking about Things to Do in your Hometown

I have asked students what can people do in their hometown and I often receive one answer — NOTHING!

There’s nothing to do in my hometown. It’s so boring.

That can’t be true. There must be things for people to do. Even if you don’t like to do these things, other people may enjoy doing these things and that means there are definitely some activities that people can do in your hometown.

i love my hometown essay

Here is a list of ideas to inspire you.

Going to the gym

Playing tennis

Walking in the hills on the outskirts of town

Walking on the seafront of the town

Shopping malls and going shopping

Coffee shops and coffee culture

Eating out and going to restaurants

Going to bars and nightclubs (for older students!)

Dancing in the town square

Visiting the library

Helping charity organisations

Fishing in the local river

Swimming in the swimming pool

Many evening classes in the local community college

Now let me show you some examples

There is a swimming pool in my hometown and many people go there. Whenever I go there, it always seems very busy. I try to go early in the morning to avoid all the crowds.

The pool is really nice and clean. There is an area for the serious swimmers to swim in laps and then there is an area for people and children who just want to lounge around in the water and cool off a little bit.

There is also a diving area with three diving boards. The top board is very high, but I jumped off it once!

We are lucky because in my hometown we have so many restaurants. I think you could go out to dinner every night of the week and still not visit every restaurant in the city.

And the restaurants are all very different in style and cuisine. We have the local food but we also have Indian, Thai, French and Italian. It’s really nice for people to go out in the evening and eat a delicious meal with friends and family.

In my hometown, some older ladies like to go to the town square and do a special kind of dancing. They do it for exercise I think but also they can meet up and chat with each other. So it’s a social activity for them too.

Some people say that the music they play when they do their dancing is too loud. But I think we should just let them do it. They’re not really causing anyone any harm.

i love my hometown essay

Look at the list of ideas I gave you above.

Use these and the examples and write down your own ideas for talking about things to do in your hometown. Practice together with a friend or show your teacher.

Talking about the Architecture in your Hometown

The architecture in your hometown means all the buildings. Are these buildings very old and traditional? Or new and modern? Is the architecture boring — if so, why do you think so?

i love my hometown essay

How to talk about buildings and houses

You can use the following words to describe buildings and architecture in your hometown.

Many cities these days have a downtown area with many high-rise buildings, all very modern and expensive. The suburbs of the city might consist of smaller houses and buildings or low-rise buildings — this is where the people usually live.

i love my hometown essay

Let me show you some examples

Bath is a very old city, and the architecture is very old. Most of the buildings in the centre of the city are over 200 years old. I think there is a law to protect these buildings and houses. They look nice because they all have the same colour, made out of a special sandstone found in the local area.

But once you leave the city centre, the architecture changes. The houses are more modern in the suburbs. This is where people live.

The downtown area of my city is filled full of high-rise buildings. They are all very high and look very modern. It feels so busy walking around this area surrounded by such high buildings. Some of the buildings are so high that you can walk on one side of the street and be in the shade from the sun.

I live in a very quiet village in the countryside. All the houses are pretty old and there is no real special architecture. People just need a place to live and the local post office to buy some things. There is an old church though, and it looks very nice from the outside. I don’t know how old it is, but it looks very old.

Write down your own ideas about the buildings in your hometown. When you have enough sentences speak them out loud with a friend or classmate.

Talking about the Surrounding Area in your Hometown

Your hometown doesn’t just consist of the actual town itself. When talking about your hometown you can also talk about the surrounding area of the town or city where you live.

i love my hometown essay

This is especially true of a smaller town.

Your town may be surrounded by countryside.

What is in the countryside?

Are there farms and little villages?

Are they developing the land and building more houses or factories?

There must be something in this area, now is the time for you to talk about it.

There might be hills or mountains in the surrounding area of your hometown. Or maybe you live near the sea in which case you can talk about that.

Whatever exists just outside your hometown you can talk about it in the IELTS test. This is all part of the description of where you live and the examiner wants to hear about it.

i love my hometown essay

I’ll give you some examples:

The surrounding area of my hometown is just countryside. Some small villages with just a few people living there. There is a new factory that makes tyres just outside my town. I think many people from my hometown work there now.

If you go south of my town, there is a big lake. I have gone past this lake and seen people fishing there.

All around my hometown are hills. It’s like my entire town is in a big hole in the ground! But it’s nice to see all the hills around the town. In the summer, they all look so green and in the winter, if it snows, all the hills are covered and everything looks white.

What is in the surrounding area of your hometown?

Take a few minutes and write down some ideas and thoughts. You must have seen what is just outside your hometown. Talk about this for a few minutes if you can.

Talking about Public Transport in your Hometown

If you live in a very small town, then chances are you may have only one bus an hour that takes you to the nearest big town. Or no bus at all.

i love my hometown essay

In a bigger town, you could have several bus services taking people to different parts of the town. Or to other towns and the nearest big city.

You might have a train service. You might live in a big city and have a subway system.

The fact is that every town and city has a public transportation system — even if it is only one bus an hour.

These are the main kinds of public transportation:

Taxi (not really public but let’s put it in there)

Other lesser-known systems:

Shared bike (many cities use this these days)

The best way to talk about this is to look at the following questions and answer them:

What is this public transportation system?

Why do you use it?

Why do other people in your hometown use it?

Is it convenient?

Is it cheap/expensive to use?

How many lines does it have? (for bus and subway)

Is it crowded during rush hour?

And here is some vocabulary you might use when talking about public transportation:

When talking about the public transportation system in your hometown, in the IELTS test I advise you to talk about the most common or most popular public transportation system. If you try to talk about some public transport that is less known or used, you could run into trouble.

That means that you should only really talk about the bus, the subway or the train.

You can add at the end of your talk that there are other kinds of public transportation in your hometown.

Something like this:

…we also have many taxis, and a ferry that takes people over the river, but I have never used it. I only use the subway as it is the most convenient.

Shall we look at a couple of examples?

In my hometown, we have a new subway system. It is brand-new, so it is very clean and modern-looking. There are only three lines so far but there will be more lines in the future.

It is so much better than the bus. Much quicker and much more convenient. We don’t have any traffic jams now!

Some people complain and say that it is more expensive than the bus. It is a little more expensive but I think it is worth it for the convenience and the speed.

During rush hour it is a little difficult to get a seat but if you arrive early, you can find a seat no problem. I really love the subway in my hometown, it just makes going to school so much easier.

We have a bus system in my hometown. There are plenty of buses to take you wherever you want to go. But if you use the bus during rush hour, then you will definitely get stuck in traffic. There’s just no escaping it.

Sometimes I use a shared bike. These are easy to find and they are cheap to use. If it’s raining, I don’t use the shared bike but most other days I do.

You want to try?

Look at all the vocabulary and make sure you know the meanings of the words and then make sentences of your own.

Then think about the public transportation systems in your hometown and which one is the most common for people to use.

Write down some ideas in your notebook and make sentences.

Then with a friend speak them out loud.

Practice every day!

Talking about Shopping in your Hometown

Do you have many shops in your hometown? Are there just a few local shops or do you have a giant shopping mall with all the latest fashion brands?

i love my hometown essay

Every town has at least one shop to buy something.

These are the main kind of shops you might have in your town:

As I have said before, let’s look at some questions and you answer them one by one.

What kind of shops and stores are there in your hometown?

What can people buy in these places?

Where are all the shops and stores?

Are they expensive?

What kind of people go there?

And then let’s look at some examples

I live in a big city and there are many shopping malls. There is one big shopping mall near my home and it is very popular with people, especially young people.

Younger people like to go there because it looks very fashionable and modern. All the shops are mainly selling fashionable clothes and there are two cool coffee shops on the first floor where you can sit and drink coffee.

The shopping mall huge. It is on five floors. On the top floor, there is a cinema and in the basement, there is a supermarket but it is a little expensive I think. I don’t go there. I only go to the clothes stores and shoe stores with my friends. We can’t always buy something we like but we like to look!

If I go to the mall with my friends, we like to drink coffee after we have looked all around the stores.

There are many small shops and stores in my neighbourhood. These shops are not very fashionable but they are very convenient and they sell many useful things that we might need in the house or in our daily life.

One shop we always use in the nearest convenience store. It is open until very late and opens very early in the morning. If we run out of things that we need then we can always go to the convenience store and buy what we need.

I see many of my neighbours there and my father always goes there in the morning to buy cigarettes.

The shop sells newspapers, snacks and sandwiches, soft drinks and ice cream. Every time I go there, they always have customers inside.

Now it’s your turn.

Look up the vocabulary and make sure you understand what all the words mean. Make your own sentences if you wish.

Then look at the questions above and the examples. This can help you to form your own answers. Write down all your ideas and put them into sentences in order.

Then practice speaking out loud.

You will not need to talk about all of the above topics about your hometown in the IELTS test.

If you were to talk about your hometown using all the topics included in this guide you would be talking for about 30 minutes!

The reason I included all the topics above is so you can answer any question the examiner fires at you in the IELTS test. If he asks you to talk about shopping or public transportation in your hometown, then you should be prepared. If he asks you about food or customs in your hometown, no problem for you.

Just go through all the steps and you can find out how to talk about your hometown no matter the question.

And as always — let me know in the comments below!

It is so important to cover these areas used for IELTS tests because they are the ones that often catch students off guard. I especially liked the study charts as they ground students with vocabulary and observation points. The ideas also triggered memories of towns I’ve visited. Travel really helps as it gives you things to compare your town with. For example I visited a tiny town in Sweden and it was like a charming hobbit town with wondrous new customs and scenery quite unlike my own tiny hometown.

' data-src=

That is a great idea, Leona. I forgot to add that to the article… I used to ask students to compare their hometown to the big city we were living in and talk about the similarities and differences. It gives them a lot more to talk about, and in the IELTS test that really helps. How was Sweden? I’ve always wanted to visit.

My Hometown Essay

My Hometown is that little fork-in-the-road somewhere between Chicago and Denver, always reminiscent of a simpler time.

My Hometown is a bubble — it is timeless. Sure, the corn stands tall and the cattle graze freely each season, but the hills and valleys are forever the same age.

In My Hometown, the sidewalks are cracked and the driveways crumbled. The ancient oaks and wise old maples reluctantly shed their leaves for each approaching winter, only to recover them the following spring.

On quiet summer evenings, My Hometown’s empty swimming pool still echoes with the joyful cries of children splashing in the once-present water. It is this swimming pool that costs too much to keep open and too much to replace, so it sits in silence as the years continue to pass slowly by.

In My Hometown, the seasons forever change, but My Neighbors do not. They are granite. They go to work, come home, take the trash out, eat dinner. Rarely thinking about the future, only remembering what used to be.

My Hometown is a dying town. Its proud residents are aging and its young people move away. Its streets are growing quieter and the businesses are closing doors.

The passing of a funeral procession only means there will be one fewer yard mowed next summer.

My Neighbors are all the same. My Neighbors all smile that same warm smile and wave at everyone who passes.

My Neighbors are all old. They listened to the moon landing on the local AM — the same station where they heard of, but never witnessed the Civil Rights movement in the 60’s.

My Neighbors have the same voices — one blends right into the next. Sure, they all have different stories to share, but they all sing the same old song.

At the bar uptown, one of My Neighbors sings a melody of the good ol’ days, a song which takes place in Beaver Cleaver America, where politicians and activists were but a distant thought, and Ronald Reagan posters still hang on the walls.

Across the street at the post office, another of My Neighbors whistles the tune of current events through the lens of their Fox News television set.

My Neighbors sing those same songs and whistle those same tunes day in and day out. The world around them shifts and changes, twists and turns, but in the bubble of My Hometown, My Neighbors do not.

In My Hometown, if you were to explain the changing times to one of My Neighbors, they would listen closely. But your words would be found as lost as the breath with which you spoke them.

My Neighbors would never be intentionally hurtful to an outsider. They would not be disrespectful nor rude. But they would know the instant when someone who looks different from them enters the city limits. These streets can sing too.

It is as if My Neighbors are afraid to ruin their one-dimensional, blank white canvas of a town. But I ask of you all: how can a picture be beautiful if the canvas has no color? Has no depth? Has no character?

And for My Neighbors, how is one of you supposed to stand out from another against the backdrop of a snow-covered cornfield filled with monotony and dullness?

This is the landscape where I was born and raised. And it is with the songs of My Neighbors and the timelessness of My Hometown that I am forced to travel through my life.

This is both a burden and a blessing, a commendation and a curse. It is somewhere between this fantasy of a place and the rest of the real world where I truly reside — right at the edge of the bubble surrounding My Hometown.

My Neighbor’s songs beckon to me and My Hometown’s colorlessness is hypnotizing, yet against that nearly overpowering current I carry on.

500+ Words My Hometown Essay

There is always a place one likes to call home. A place that isn’t perfect but brings back a bundle of memories, surrounds you with familiar crowds, those same buildings with a few more additions on every visit, the same public problems and an acquainted way of dealing with the locals. All these make us give it more importance than the rest. So, here, I will be describing my hometown.

My hometown is Hamirpur, Uttar Pradesh. It is a small town where I was born and grew up in my childhood. I haven’t spent much time in my hometown as my father got the opportunity to join the defence service. But, I have lovely memories of my childhood. Hamirpur is situated on the bank of the river Yamuna and it meets the water requirement of the area. Its water is also used for irrigation purposes which makes the soil more fertile and rich for agricultural activities. The river sand is also used for construction. Lots of trucks full of sand transport the sand to different places. In my childhood days, we used to swim across the river and play on its shore during the summer season.

I think Hamirpur is a great place for me for many reasons. First of all, my hometown has all types of seasons. One can enjoy hot summers, chilly winters and rainy monsoons. Since the weather is so great here, one can enjoy the taste of different kinds of food, and vegetables in different seasons. Each season demands a different lifestyle. For example, during summer, people prefer to wear cotton and light colour clothes to save themselves from hot temperatures. Whereas during winter, people wear woollen clothes and jackets of different colours. Hamirpur is well known for farming. We grow different types of crops like wheat, rice, millet etc.

I have a temple in my hometown. I used to go to the temple every Thursday with my family. It has a serene atmosphere, green fields and a pollution-free environment. If I go there, I feel like it is heaven for me, and I definitely say that it is just not enough to see the beauty of my hometown in the rainy season; you have to experience it yourself.

To write a nice essay yourself, close your eyes, take a deep breath, let it out slowly, and then visualise your hometown. Try to trace your movements around it, your interactions with it on a family and friends level. Imagine the wind, the sound of the gardens, even bees and flowers etc. Then start writing.

This “My Hometown Essay” must have helped students in improving their writing skills. For more study material and the latest updates on CBSE/ICSE/State Board/Competitive Exams, visit BYJU’S website.

12 Reasons Why Your Home Town Will Always Have A Special Place In Your Heart

And for a lot of Indians who move to other cities to pursue their studies, run their businesses or move ahead in their careers, their hearts are firmly placed in their respective home towns or villages. Here is why our home towns will always have a special place in our hearts.

They say that “Home is where the heart is.”

1. your hometown is the place which holds countless happy memories of your childhood and youth..

All the gullies where you played cricket, the little shops at the corner, visits from the pados ki aunty and many more.

2. It’s the one place where you don’t need to put in an effort to fit in.

You just know that you belong! The way of life, the dialect and the regular humdrum of everyday life put you at ease and give you peace of mind.

3. You know all the shortcuts, long-cuts, hang outs and routes like the back of your hand.

It takes you half as much time to reach just about anywhere.

4. The chaat, gol-gappa, kulfi and street food you get there is out of the world.

You can’t explain it, but the flavor in the food you get there just cannot be found anywhere else.

5. And you know what the best thing about this place is? The local people. Silly or cool, crazy or kind, they’re your people!

6. life would be incomplete without the get-togethers with your childhood friends and those delightful family gatherings at your regular “adda.”, 7. it’s a place which teaches you, “jeene ka andaaz.”.

It’s not just a town or a village, it’s a thriving community composed of all those nosy yet endearing neighbors and uncles and aunties of your colony or neighbourhood. And from this motley group of people, you learn a lot of valuable lessons.

8. It’s a place where you don’t feel scared or left out.

It gives you an amazing sense of confidence. You know that as long as you’re there, you can get away with everything. Even this;

9. As you have grown, you’ve seen your town or village grow over the years as well.

So you know how it was 20 years back and 20 years later, you’ll still call it home.

10. You can’t stand it when someone talks trash about your home town.

When your friends from other towns criticize your home town, you become aggressive and come up with reasons both emotional, logical and downright weird to show them how awesome it is.

11. And then there’s the aroma.

You never notice that your town has one until you step out and live in another city for a while. When you come back and step out of the train, bus or plane, somehow, the air you breathe in is so familiar. Just how?

12. Your home town will always hold a special place in your heart because it had a huge part in making you who you are today. And it will always be Home Sweet Home.

Essay on My Town Prayagraj (Old name Allahabad) | My Town Essay

Essay on My Town Prayagraj (Old name Allahabad)

The town I lived in once was famous for one thing: it was home to the first three Prime Ministers of India.

Jawahar Lal Nehru was born in Prayagraj, Sri Lal Bahadur Shastri had a house here, and Indira Gandhi grew up here as well. Anand Bhawan, donated to the nation by the third Prime Minister, is now a place of historical importance.

Prayagraj is situated near the Sangam, the place where the two rivers, The Ganga and the Yamuna, meet. Thousands of tourists and pilgrims come to Prayagraj to dip in the Sangam.

It is a serene city because there are not many industries around. However, Naini, a suburb of Prayagraj, is a rapidly developing industrial hub.

There are a number of agricultural institutes, the Indian Telephone Industry, Universal Tyres factories, and a glass factory.

The city of Prayagraj has the Jeep Flash Light factories which make batteries. There are a few spots in Allahabad which have scenic beauty.

Visitor attractions include the old but majestic stone buildings of the High Court and the offices of the various departments.

Prayagraj is famous as a Hindu pilgrimage center. Tourists around the world come here to learn about this auspicious place. The main office of the Board of Secondary and Intermediate Education is situated in Allahabad.

The headquarters of the education department of Uttar Pradesh is located in Allahabad. The University of Allahabad is among the oldest and most prestigious universities that have produced many scholars.

The markets of Allahabad are not as extensive as those in metros like Delhi, Kolkatta, Noida, Bangalore, Hyderabad etc. Yet the Civil Lines market offers some attractions for outsiders.

Visitors want to see the street stalls, the picture houses, the fountain in the center of Civil Lines, and, above all, the Hanuman Temple.

Allahabad (now renamed Prayagraj after Yogi Adityananth took the oath as CM) City in Uttar Pradesh is associated with many historical stories. It is evident by the name Prayagraj, which means “the abode of God”.

Kalina standing amidst the autumn leaves

Hey all! My name is Kalina, and I'm a '27 from Sofia, Bulgaria. I'm interested in literature, the natural sciences, and foreign languages, so I'm considering majoring/minoring in CS, Environmental Studies, and Comparative Lit. I love writing and reading fantasy (i.e. I'm an expert on Middle Earth and Hogwarts studies). I also love hiking, bird-watching, and learning random words in Portuguese from my Brazilian friends. I'm so excited to share with you my Dartmouth journey!

If I could rewrite my Why Dartmouth essay

Kalina's trippees on the path to Mount Cube

Two things happened this week that inspired this post. Number one, I attended an alumni event at my high-school, where I was told that because I was talking so much about my love for Dartmouth, I was a "college nationalist" (that was a funny remark, gotta give it to him). And number two, after it became clear that I was so adept at practicing "college nationalism," I decided to re-read my Dartmouth essays from a year ago to see whether I was so helplessly in love with that college even then.

I happily re-read two of my Dartmouth essays—the ones in which I talked about reading and writing. I couldn't quite make myself re-read my "Why Dartmouth" essay, though.

The "college nationalist" doesn't want to re-read her "Why Dartmouth" essay? Why?

I was never quite happy with my "Why Dartmouth" essay. I don't think it shows why I was SO excited about Dartmouth a year ago, nor is it anywhere close to showing why I am STILL excited about it now. 

If I could rewrite my "Why Dartmouth" essay, I would talk much more about the DOC ( the Dartmouth Outing Club). I'd talk about the many trips it runs EVERY week (which are all absolutely free for students). I'd talk about the many charming cabins Dartmouth owns across the New Hampshire woods (which are also free to rent for Dartmouth students). And most importantly, I'd talk about the amazing people you find in the DOC—from those who walk around carrying suitcases full of rocks and fluorescent fossils to those who decide to go surfing and birdwatching at the same time.

THIS was the part I found really tricky to write in my "Why Dartmouth" essay a year ago. How do you talk about the people you still haven't met, but are absolutely certain that they exist and that they're amazing without sounding corny or delusional?

As a senior in high school, you can't really KNOW that the community at your dream college is in fact the amazing community you think it is. After all, you still haven't become a part of that community to cite it as your main reason for applying to that school. Besides, how do you convincingly explain that hunch of yours, that gut feeling that these are YOUR PEOPLE, when you still haven't met these people?

I don't know how you do all that—you often just write something you aren't quite proud of, like I did. In my original "Why Dartmouth" essay, I focused on real things I could easily put in writing—from the Organic Farm to the Magnuson Center for Entrepreneurship. But in my revised "Why Dartmouth" essay, I would write about the people; I'd write about the brilliant, hilarious, and fascinating hikers, climbers, archers, birdwatchers, surfers, and skiers that make me grateful every day that I'm at no other school but Dartmouth :)

English Summary

Essay on My Hometown in English

I come from a very small place in Bihar, called Darbhanga. It is such a small place that one can easily get from one end to the other within 4-5 hours. And for entertainment too, one will hardly get a place to visit.

In fact, restaurants are the only places where one can enjoy one’s friend’s company. Though with time, businessmen are trying to open more places to hang out for students as well as other tourists. 

When it comes to language, Darbhanga is famous for its Maithili language which in itself holds the sweetness of eternity. And the people here are mostly occupied with various businesses, of which business of clothes and eateries are the best ones for investors.

Earlier, even the shopping stores were very less in number here but now one can find franchises of most of the famous shopping stores. 

Despite being a smaller region, my hometown holds most of the memories of my life. It is the place where the great Raj Ground is situated with some of the most beautiful buildings in it like Nargauna Palace, Kali Temple, Wish Temple, etc.

Though now it hardly has any Royal significance as it has been converted into two great universities, Lalit Narayan Mithila University and Sanskrit University. In fact, this university campus is the only campus in Asia which has two universities within it. 

In addition to the charm of the university campus, one can relish the delicious mangoes and samosas for which Darbhanga is famous all across the globe. And not to forget about the Dosa of the famous restaurant “Rajasthan”, that serves the world’s best dosa which you’ll not find even in the South. 

Last but not the least, my hometown holds a very special place in the hearts of people who visit it even once because of the unity it holds in its diversity.

How a Former N.F.L. Player Started Designing Sculptural Furniture

Plus: hand-painted sweatpants, a chef’s hotel in Seattle and more recommendations from T Magazine.

Michael Bennett, N.F.L. Player Turned Designer, Exhibits His Work in Chicago

Left, a man in black pants and a black vest with a light collared shirt sits on a black chair. A stool, wooden bench and wooden chair are arrayed on faded grass around him. Right, a black chair and matching three-legged stool are on a wood floor in front of a window overlooking the ocean and palm trees.

By Jinnie Lee

Michael Bennett, the former N.F.L. player, started designing furniture as a way to reconsider architecture and the spaces that Black people occupy. Inspired by his upbringing in Louisiana and Texas, as well as by trips to Senegal, where his ancestors are from, Bennett began to think about the objects that “bring Black people together in public spaces” as a way to deepen his longtime activism work focused on racial justice. After retiring from football in 2020, he founded the design practice Studio Kër. Bennett’s exploration of the Black home led him to create an 11-piece collection of sculptural furniture that he’s debuting this month in “We Gotta Get Back to the Crib,” his inaugural exhibition for the Los Angeles art gallery Marta, presented at Theaster Gates’s Rebuild Foundation in Chicago. (In the spring, the show will travel to Houston.) The collection reimagines objects of communal gatherings; pieces include the Gumbo lounge chair, a lush take on the stackable monobloc chair, and the Pew couch, a nod to the church bench, made of leather and ekki wood. “For me, the show is about celebrating Black ingenuity and connecting back to that African diasporic design language,” says Bennett. “We Gotta Get Back to the Crib” is on view from Jan. 12 through Feb. 10, marta.la .

A New Destination to See Art in an Old TriBeCa Building

By Kurt Soller

A few years ago, when the New York gallerist Jack Shainman toured the 20,000-square-foot Beaux-Arts space that he’ll open this week as the Hall, his new TriBeCa gallery, he told his staff to play it cool around the real estate agent — and then, once inside the long-neglected lower floors of the Clock Tower Building (46 Lafayette Street), quickly showed his hand: “It’s like buying a living sculpture: the columns, the marble, the stairs,” he said on a recent afternoon, gesturing at a row of large, arched windows. After acquiring it , he and his partner, the Spanish painter Carlos Vega, waited two years while developers renovated and restored the landmarked lobby and adjacent rooms, all built around 1898 by the firm McKim, Mead & White and once home to the New York Life Insurance Company. Now nearly complete, Shainman’s gallery is not only a new cultural center where people can see ambitious free exhibits; it also offers visitors a rare chance to marvel at some historic Manhattan architecture, with its complex, preserved bank vault and ornate, 29-foot-high coffered wood ceilings.

Compared to the white box that Shainman’s had in Chelsea since 1997, which will remain open, or the School , his quirkier upstate venue founded in 2013, this spot will be a much larger place that the artists he represents can transform to suit their needs, whether monumental or more intimate. It’ll officially open in September, when the artist Nick Cave will unveil, among other new works, a 16-foot-tall bronze sculpture. But as of Jan. 12, anyone can walk in and see “ Broken Spectre ,” the Irish artist Richard Mosse’s immersive 74-minute multi-spectral video installation about the destruction of the Amazon, filmed between 2019 and 2022. It’s the first time the piece — presented on 60 feet of new, vivid LED screens with an enveloping soundscape — is being shown in Manhattan, and the deep connections between the city’s capitalist bedrock (and this building’s, in particular) aren’t lost on the artist or his gallerist: “Here was a bank that traded on the lives of enslaved people,” Mosse says. “This was the wealth that Manhattan was built on, that America was built on, and there’s a direct connection to what’s happening in the Amazon. Rather than disavow it, or pretend it never happened, [Jack and Carlos and I] are trying to be honest about it: This is history, and it’s still ongoing.” “Broken Spectre” is on view from Jan. 12 through March 16, jackshainman.com .

A Wallpaper and Fabric Collection Inspired by Botany and Bows

By Caitie Kelly

After living in Paris and Manhattan during her nearly 30-year career as a fashion and design editor, Marian McEvoy moved into a cottage on the banks of the Hudson River in upstate New York. There, she creates botanical collages and illustrations that she sells through the interiors store KRB . When she was discussing a collaboration with the home décor company Schumacher in August 2022, she invited its creative director, Dara Caponigro, to visit. “Rather than just show them things that I thought might be nice translated into fabric, I said to Dara, ‘Go around and take anything off a wall or table. There’s all kinds of things: little sketches and notes in my workshop. Bring them back and we’ll look at them together,’” says McEvoy. Luckily, what Caponigro gathered delighted her, including a surprising bow design (“You can’t always count on people to like bows,” she says, though the timing of this launch coincides with a peak in interest ) as well as prints of flowers, leaves and other botanicals. Those patterns now adorn the six wallcoverings and four fabrics that make up the high-contrast collection. McEvoy’s penchant for strong colors and lines is most visible in the rich red Thistle Vine, green Polka-Dot Jungle and crisp turquoise Bow-Wow-Wow prints. The designer has already integrated the collection into her cottage, with bedroom curtains in Pretty Petals (a print of daisy stems) and Bow-Wow-Wow as a wallcovering in her powder room. “I’ve liked it enough to say, ‘I’m going to live with this every day in my own house’,” she says. Marian McEvoy’s collection for Schumacher is available now to interior designers at schumacher.com , and to the general public at decoratorsbest.com beginning Feb. 1.

A New Restaurant in Athens Serves Up Contemporary Greek Art

By Gisela Williams

When the Greek entrepreneur and art collector Philippos Tsangrides opened Gallina, a restaurant in his hometown, Athens, late last year, he wanted the interiors to be as unexpected as the dishes on the menu. Once he found the location — on a corner in the neighborhood of Koukaki — he hired Eleni Petaloti and Leonidas Trampoukis, the architects behind the design studio Objects of Common Interest. They used a mash-up of materials: red marble for the tables, pink leather for the chairs, terrazzo for the floors and wood for the paneling. The restaurant is also a showcase for several pieces from Tsangrides’s private art collection, including a silk tapestry designed by the painter Jannie Varelas and a neon sign that reads “SEXIST” rather than “EXIT” by the artist Olga Migliaressi-Phoca. But possibly the most dramatic object in the room is a sinuous tube of white light created by Petaloti and Trampoukis that snakes off a wall in the middle of the space. While the artists featured — as well as the chef, Pavlos Kiriakis — are Greek, the food on offer has no particular provenance. Dishes include chicken served with miso beurre blanc and truffle and wild mushrooms accompanied by a white chocolate béarnaise. And for those who want to continue the party, Tsangrides plans to open a wine bar across the street this summer. gallina.gr .

A Homey Hotel in Seattle’s Capitol Hill

By Roxanne Fequiere

After the chef Julian Hagood opened his first restaurant, in Seattle’s Capitol Hill in 2016, he became acquainted with Winnie, the woman next door. “We became fast friends,” he says of the septuagenarian and “neighborhood fixture,” who made a habit of stopping by Harry’s Fine Foods and ordering the same thing every time. When Winnie decided to move east in order to be closer to family, Hagood and his partner, Jake Santelli, offered to buy her Dutch Colonial, whose charm they promised to preserve as they developed their latest hospitality offering.

In Harry’s Guest House, a two-room hotel that opened in December, Winnie’s drawings appear on the walls, and her wooden writing desk is tucked into a sun-drenched nook. One of the rooms is named after the home’s former owner. The other, the Lucy Suite, is named after Hagood and Santelli’s pit bull Lab mix. When designing the interiors, the couple sought out a mix of vintage and contemporary furniture and textiles. A hand-carved wooden wardrobe from the 1940s houses the TV, while Zak+Fox fabrics used throughout bring warm color and pattern into the space. Just as Winnie used to, guests can also stop by Harry’s Fine Foods next door — the seasonal menu is available for in-room dining, too. Rooms from $375 a night, harrysguesthouse.com .

Hand-Painted Striped and Smiley Sweatshirts

By Elissa Suh

The sweatshirts and pants of Signs Point to Yes are adorned with metallic tulips, sherbet-hued explosions of confetti and happy faces. There are a few sad faces, too. The artists Julia Dault and Hannah Whitaker, who founded the clothing line last February, hand paint each piece, often using ketchup bottles. “It allows us to paint freely with a gestural hand, imperfectly, with a lot of drips, which is just also really fun,” says Whitaker, whose practice is otherwise focused on photography and film. The name of the company draws inspiration from an answer provided by a Magic 8 Ball and a sense of “tongue-in-cheek optimism,” says Dault, who paints and sculpts. The artists chose comfortable cotton shirts and pants as their canvases after gravitating toward the items during the pandemic. As life returned to normal and art gallery openings resumed, their appreciation only continued. “That’s kind of our aim here: to convince you that [these clothes aren’t] just for lounging,” Whitaker says.

6 reasons to love your hometown, no matter where life takes you, this will always be home..

6 Reasons To Love Your Hometown

Growing up, my friends and peers always said how much they hated where we lived. Everyone was so ready to get out of our hometown, I feel like they took for granted everything that Pawleys Island had to offer. So here are ten reasons why we, and everyone else, should love the places that we call home.

1. No other town has exactly what yours does.

Every place is different, so we really should be thankful for everything our towns have to offer. Whether your hometown has amazing shopping, beautiful sunsets, or giant plates of bacon-cheesy-ranchy fries (thank you bisqit), there are some things that you can only get in your hometown and that you look forward to every time you go back home.

2. In your hometown, you always know exactly where you're going.

At home, you know every side street, every shortcut, and every cut through to get exactly where you're going, no GPS necessary. For me, I just love the feeling of going home and knowing exactly where everything I need is and how to get there. It's so much easier to relax when you don't have to look up where everything is like you do during your freshman year at college.

3. The feeling you get when you go back home is honestly unmatched.

Going to familiar places, seeing familiar people, and sleeping in your own bed are amazing feelings that you just don't get while you're away at school or living somewhere else. There are so many places at home that are so special to me and that I have such a connection with, and the feeling I get when I go back to those places is indescribable.

4. Even if you've been almost everywhere in your town, there's always something new to discover.

No matter how long you lived in your hometown, there is always something new to check out when you go back. Whether the cityscape has changed, a new hangout spot has popped up, or the menu at your favorite restaurant is different, it's always interesting to see how your city has evolved since the last time you were there. Even when you go home and think you've done everything there is to do there, you haven't!

5. Your hometown brings back some amazing memories.

This is where it all started. You went to school here. You made friends here. You cried here. You struggled here. But here, you made it through everything and came out as a better person. I can honestly say that I would not be the person I am today if I grew up somewhere different. I'm so thankful for the challenges I faced and the lessons I learned in my hometown, as well as for the person I have become as a result. Every time I go home, I am reminded of all of the things I did growing up, and I am so grateful to have so many amazing memories at home.

6. Your hometown will always be home.

No matter where life takes you, your hometown is the one place you can go that will always feel like home to you. College is great, but living in a dorm with 500 other students and sleeping on a mattress that who knows how many other people have slept on has nothing on going home and being with your family in your own house. The sense of independence that college gives you is super important, but staying true to your roots and remembering where you come from are equally crucial.

So, no matter what drama happened in high school , no matter what issues you may have faced at home, the truth is that there truly is no place like your hometown. So, to all the people still at home, please realize how lucky you have it. You're surrounded by memories, by family, and by people who have known you and loved you for longer than you may realize. Savor it, appreciate it, and always remember that, no matter where you end up, your hometown is where it all began.

7 new year clichés: break free, embrace change, those that everyone know.

It's 2017! You drank champagne, you wore funny glasses, and you watched the ball drop as you sang the night away with your best friends and family . What comes next you may ask? Sadly you will have to return to the real world full of work and school and paying bills. "Ah! But I have my New Year's Resolutions!"- you may say. But most of them are 100% complete cliches that you won't hold on to. Here is a list of those things you hear all around the world.

1. "I will be serious about working out"

Are you? Odds are you will get that gym membership, go for a few weeks, and completely forget about it. You will realize that autopay is taking $80 out of your account and you either need to cancel or start going again. There is nothing wrong with wanting to be in better shape, but do it at a pace that is right for you. Don't let the change in year dictate it.

2. "New year new me!"

This cliche is the most over used and most underdone. Every year we hear "New Year New Me!!", and the most that comes out of it is someone dyes their hair or gets a tattoo . Yes, these are life changing attributes to a person, and everyone should be commended for trying new things, but don't try to change you just because its a new year. Stay true to yourself.

3. "I'm going to be more outgoing!"

Being adventurous is always a great thing! Stepping out of your comfort zone is always exhilarating, but don't force yourself to do things that make you feel uncomfortable. So are you really going to go out, or will you continue to watch Netflix and go to the same restaurants. The choice is yours!

4. "I'm going to get more organized "

Trying to get organized is a great feat few of us can manage. It's always good to do a big spring cleaning, but trying to completely organize everything is trying to change how you live. I know when I try to do something like get a new planner, I either stick to it or I forget about it.

5. "I'm leaving my bad relationships in the past!"

Bad influences won't go away in your life if you wish them to stay in another year. Work hard at this one if you are going to make it one of your New Years cliches. Toxic relationships should stay in the past, but it is up to you to keep them out of your life.

6. "I'm going to party less"

Party as much as you want. There is nothing wrong of going out and having fun as long as you are safe doing it. If partying is what you enjoy doing, then that is okay. Not everyone conforms to that lifestyle, but if that is your thing there is no shame in that! Don't leave it in another year because you think you have to.

7. "I'm going to get more serious about my career/schooling"

This is the cliche that you should stick to. It's never a bad thing to be more focused on your career and school, as long as you don't lose sight of the important things. If you get serious, make sure you make time for your family, friends, and most importantly, yourself.

11 Essential Expectations for Becoming the Ultimate Cheermeister

Mastering festive expectations: tips to shine as your holiday cheermeister.

So you’ve elected yourself as this year's Holiday Cheermeister, there’s no shame in that. The holidays are your pride and joy, and you've taken on the responsibility to get everyone in the spirit. With only one week until Christmas , here are some things we expect from you, Cheermeister.

1. Counting down every second until the big day


2. Being the first to put up their Christmas decorations

3. planning all the holiday festivities for your crew, 4. forcing your holiday enthusiasm on others, 5. winning first place in every holiday sweater contest.


6. Giving the best secret Santa gifts (Puppies for everyone?)


7. Being the life of all the holiday parties


8. Getting defensive when someone says Christmas isn't the best holiday. Cheering on your friends through the last week before school vacation


10. Never missing the opportunity to rock out to Christmas's greatest hits


11. Lastly, not letting anything break your Christmas spirit!

What does santa want for christmas 5 presents on his wish list, santa is really hard to buy a gift for..

Santa Claus is the hardest self-employed freelance worker out there. The Christmas spirit of joy and peace himself reading a list of people's names and their gifts to be delivered, and all in one night is no cookie cutter task.

He should know; there's plenty of cookies to go around. Santa has his reindeer to keep him company but spreading Christmas cheer is not always what Santa wants to do for himself.

Here are five presents Santa wants for Christmas because he deserves them.

1. Gap years.

Santa gets to travel across the world but only in one night. Think of all the local hot spots and destinations he is missing out on. It is unfair that he has to deliver billions of presents while the rest of the world enjoys their vacation time.

We all could chip in and give Santa an extended holiday leave. Parents can just tell their kids he had to rush order their presents this year. And the year after that, and the year after that...

It is about time Santa got out of his boots and into some sandals. He does not do timeshares either.

2. Real food.

It was cute the first few times around, but does it have to be the same thing every year? Santa is a sweet and jolly man plenty enough on his own.

He doesn't need another candy cane, chocolate chip cookie, or glass of milk to keep the holiday cheer going. If anything, he is bound to have another sugar crash.

That's what caused the infamous Sleigh Crash of 1964. Ditch the dairy and baked goods, and give Santa a plate of your Christmas meal.

You thought Santa spent all of December up at the North Pole? He has an incredible side hustle, working grocery stores with his bell for the Salvation Army.

The worst gig of all is staging his workshop in every mall he goes to. Santa is a full-time toymaker and a part-time socialite. You know Santa is overqualified and he deserves what he is worth.

It is the season of giving, so give Santa his trillion dollar annual salary already.

4. Workshops around the world.

Why does Santa have to make all the world's gifts and toys from one workshop? Christmas magic can only to take our indomitable bearded friend so far.

He needs workshops in every country, that way he does not have to fly everywhere and everything at once. He will be closer to those who asked for gifts and spend more time out of his natural environment.

If Santa cannot stop working, give him something more and something better to work with.

5. Shorter lists.

Santa is not suggesting a decrease in population here. He just wants everyone to be nice instead of naughty. The gifts are enough to carry without that coal weighing him down.

He is also tired of hearing the reasons why you were naughty this year. It is breaking his gumdrop heart . Santa should not have to bribe you with presents or punish you with coal.

The greatest gift you can give Santa is kindness .

Santa is not that picky when it comes to gifts. Do the right thing, and he promises there will not be any coal in your stocking this year.

Christmas Love: A Heartfelt Letter to My Boyfriend

You are my favorite gift..

Dear Boyfriend,

Merry Christmas ! Spending another Christmas with you is enough of a gift for me. This is the time for me to tell you how grateful I am for you, which I often forget it in the light of Christmas chaos.

Who would have imagined that when we met that we would mean so much to each other now. You have nudged your way into my anxious and guarded heart in the smoothest of fashions. There is no one that I would rather spend the holidays with, no one I would rather drag to the mall for holiday shopping , and no one I would rather struggle with when trying to find the "perfect" present that tells you how much I love you. I can not wait to engulf ourselves into winter activities and there is no one I would rather have pull me around on ice skates. I am taking this time to thank you for all you have done for me in 2015... you surely deserve it.

Thank you for dealing with my anxious personality.

I know it can't be easy dealing with someone who makes up unlikely scenarios in their head or cries at the slightest moment of being overwhelmed. You have been such a comfort to me, more than you could ever imagine. You constantly surprise me about how loving and caring you are.

Thank you for pumping my gas.

Thank you for always doing the little things for me, pumping my gas being a personal favorite. Whether it's bringing me Starbucks on a cold morning or scratching my head to sleep , you always go out of your way to make me happy .

Thank you for being apart of my family.

Although I think my family may possibly like you more, you recognize how important my family is to me and have been in no way short of showing them love. You are not just a part of my life, but theirs as well and that makes them incredibly happy.

Thank you for sharing your closet with me.

Well, I guess I really mean letting my throw all my clothes over your floor and leaving shoes in your closet for months at a time. Even though you already warned me that I can't do that when we move in together.

Thank you for taking care of me when I am sick.

Whether it is surgery or a case of the sniffles you are the first to surprise me with soup , a box of tissues, and some well-needed cuddles. It takes an extra special person to kiss me, well aware that you could get sick .

Thank you for being an overall great person.

I have never been more impressed with someone who is constantly concerned about others and their well-being. You are more than willing to put others before yourself and I admire and respect you for that. You constantly impress me and there is not a day that goes by that I am not thankful for you.

With more love than you could ever imagine,

Festive pajamas!

Nothing is better then being warm and comfortable with the people you love. If you and your family are spending Christmas eve by being warm at home, then get some holiday pajamas to wear around the house! You will still look dressed for the holidays, and pictures will come out really cute!

Being comfortable does not mean you have to be in pajamas, Everyone knows that leggings are a girl’s best friend , and if you pair them with a holiday sweater and a few pieces of jewelry, you will have an outfit worth celebrating in!

Nothing says Christmas like a cozy flannel paired with jeans and a vest. They are the essential pieces for a holiday-inspired outfit, and if you are celebrating Christmas eve by having a few relatives over, then this outfit will definitely be suitable for the occasion.

Holiday dress

Dressing up for the holidays does not necessarily mean you need to go over the top! A classy dress and a nice pair of heels will make you look amazing at your family’s holiday party. Throw on some stockings and a cardigan, if you are feeling chilly, and you will look even more suitable for the season. Add a little red lipstick for the final holiday touch

​Party dress

If you are from a family that goes all-out for holiday parties, then you need to dress the part, also! Remember that wearing holiday colors is essential for this outfit, so find your favorite pair of red heels to match a pretty party dress and be ready to party the night away!
