Hi. I’m Kiki, aka Downtown Fox.
I started Downtown Fox as an instagram account (@downtownfox) about a couple years ago as a way to keep track of my favorite places while living in France. It was a secret account separate from my personal one, as I didn't want to bombard my friends with images of croissants every other day. (Yes... I ate a lot of croissants). As the account began to grow, I realized that I had something special. My secret personal instagram had become an address book of sorts for travelers visiting Paris. People wanted to know about the places to be, from the perspective of a local... or at least, as I was... a squatter.
I moved back to New York and wanted to keep the momentum going, so I expanded the reach of Downtown Fox. I began to cover New York, London, and other cities I visited. I've been told I have a knack for finding authentic, local spots wherever I venture, mainly because I insist on doing copious amounts of research before taking off. Downtown Fox is where I share it with you. So take a look around, plan your next trip, or find a new place to visit in your own city.
