We walked the entirety of the High Line from its southernmost starting point all the way to Hudson Yards. We descended once along the way to check out Chelsea Market. This was a highly recommended walk with interesting views of the Hudson River and nearby areas of Manhattan's West Side.
We found several unique buys from the vendors such as jewerly, artwork. There was a wide variety of food and unique items to purchase. It’s compact and easy to navigate. Several people were skating in the rink which was nice.. We would recommend it.
There was once a time a few months ago when I wanted to minor in botany because I enjoy plants more than I enjoy people!! I am not trying to insult you but plants are very cool!! I went here a few weeks ago and I was thinking I would run into Abraham Lincoln or Winston Churchill!! I then realized it’s called Washington square park and that it would not make very much sense!! I believe parks are very good places to do anything!! This is a regular park with a bunch of trees and people selling things!! I do not have a ton to say about it besides from it is a regular park!! Y’all should go here!!
I saw a picture of "The Girl Puzzle Monument honoring Nellie Bly" and wanted to see it up close. This is one of the best art installations that I've ever seen. The work is beautiful but is also in a gorgeous location. It's located in the Lighthouse Park on Roosevelt Island. The installation's backdrop of the skyline and the East River adds to the beautification of the art. Will definitely visit again.
What a lovely part of the city. Well worth the 20 minute walk to the river from our apartment. My sons and I had a picturesque and tranquil walk along the Hudson on our way from the Flatiron district to the One World Trade Centre. A bit of a detour, but a lovely experience.
Lovely small garden in the upper section of central park. Theres some nice steps you can walk up and over with a view of the fountain which is situated in the middle of the garden and they have restrooms you can use which are relatively well looked after for park toilets. The garden is very well kept and looked after, they were gardening whilst we were there.
The zoo is small but a nice break from the hussle and bussle of the city. We paid the gate price and it was quite affordable and comparable to prices we found previously online. The animals looked in good health and their habitats were clean.
Such a unique place on the Hudson. What a whimsical, wonderful place to walk through. Would love to come back and attend an event in the ampitheatre. Close to the High Line, Chelsea Market and the Whitney museum, this is a must see.
