The Best Parks of #NewYorkCity

Don’t have a lot of money but you want to get out of the house? See nature? Have fun? Go on a walk? Have a picnic? Let’s check out the best parks in New York City. This city is known for its skyscrapers and miles and miles of concrete, however, there are also some gems of nature in this city and you’ll be happy to visit them all.

Central Park

First, what list of parks in New York City would be complete without Central Park at the top of the list? This park is iconic and has been featured in countless movies for its dazzling display of trees, water, flowers, and wildlife in the middle of the Big Apple. It is easily one of the most recognizable parks in the world. This park is smack-dab in the middle of Manhattan and boasts various fountains, a lake, a castle, and even a zoo. If you’re ever in New York City, visiting Central Park is an absolute must.

Riverside Park

Riverside Park stretches four miles and provides breathtaking views of the Hudson River. It was designed in the 1870’s by the same architect who designed Central Park and is home to famous landmarks such as Grant’s Tomb and the Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Monument. You’ll also find various playgrounds for families as well as walking trails, trees, and various historical buildings.

Bryant Park

This park is located in Midtown Manhattan and is completely surrounded by skyscrapers. Within walking distance of the New York Public Library and Grand Central Station, this park is the perfect choice for anyone in the city who wants to have a respite on their lunchbreak or just while wandering around town. Entertainment of all kinds comes to Bryant Park at various times of the year, such as summer movies on the lawn or ice skating at Winter Village during the winter. Make sure you take the time to check what event might be going on in Bryant Park while you’re in NYC. 

Prospect Park

Prospect Park is a sprawling 585 acres and also designed by the same team which designed Central Park and also Riverside Park. Some might call Prospect Park the crown jewel of Brooklyn, as it is well-beloved by the locals. There are so many things to explore in this park from the impressive Long Meadow to the Grand Army Plaza, you’ll never want for sights to see in this nature oasis. You’ll also adore Prospect Park Lake, a haven of peace and quiet in the middle of chaotic and noisy Brooklyn. In fact, it might just be the most serene location in the area.

Brooklyn Bridge Park

With a grand view of Brooklyn Bridge in the background, New York City’s most famous (and oldest) suspension bridge, you’ll have a most beautiful day exploring this lush, green park. You’ll have a perfect vantage point to enjoy the waterfront and have yourself a picnic. Or if you prefer to wander, you’ll enjoy all the gardens, basketball courts, playgrounds, and at Pier 4, there is even a sandy beach to delight the children. As far as a park with amazing photo opportunities, this is the park to visit. You’ll have a wonderful time visiting New York City’s famous parks!

5 Great Places to Have a Picnic in New York City

When the weather cooperates, we all love to get outside and explore the world around us. There is nothing more refreshing and soothing to the soul than a picnic in the sun, surrounded by the beauty of nature. Every city in the United States has incredible locations for picnicking. Below are 5 Great Places to Picnic in New York City, but by no means is this an exhaustive list.

Central Park

The most famous New York City Park, by far, but for good reason, which is why Central Park makes this list. It is iconic. It is also extremely large and centrally located, making it ideal for picnics. Sheep Meadow and The Great Lawn are famous picnic locations. They can be crowded but have amazing views of the Park and the NYC Skyline. You can also head to Arthur Ross Pinetum for a quieter spot with picnic tables or wander even further to the North Meadow or East Meadow (vast expanses perfect for picnics).

Prospect Park

The largest park in Brooklyn and one of the best in NYC. The same people who helped design Central Park designed Prospect Park. There is a large lake with a dramatic boathouse, several monuments, lookout points, Duck Island, and the Brooklyn Botanic Garden (one of my favorite places in New York City). You can picnic on one of the vast lawns, at the edge of the lake, or on the trails of Brooklyn’s only forest. 

Astoria Park

An extremely beloved and popular park in Queens, NY. A good portion of its popularity as a park comes from its location on the East River – Astoria Park has views of both the East River and the famous NYC Skyline. It is also one of the best designed parks in the city and excellent for a recreational day followed by a picnic. There are tennis courts, a swimming pool, a running track, playgrounds, and a skate park. South Hill is one of the best spots to spread a picnic blanket. You could also choose to eat lunch on a bench along the river watching the waves, the passersby, and the NYC Skyline.

Governors Island

Not a traditionally famous New York City Park, but Governors Island has plenty to offer. The entire 172 acre island was converted from a U.S. Army Base to an island park. A visit to the island is only a short ferry ride away. Hammock Grove is one of the best places on the island, where more than 50 colorful hammocks are set up for lounging in the sun. On the Southern part of the island are giant slides for the kids in all of us. There are also quite a few restaurants and historical landmarks to visit. If you’re looking for a view of the NYC Skyline, Statue of Liberty, and Ellis Island, then visit The Hills or Governors Island Picnic Point.

The Battery

A waterfront park on the Southernmost point of Manhattan. You can escape some of the noise of the city by heading down to The Battery. While it is a popular tourist location, it is less visited than other parks in the city. Enjoy the open lawns or stroll the walk along the harbor. The Battery Fountain and the SeaGlass Carousel are popular spots for a bit of fun while out for a picnic.

Fun Summer Things To Do In New York City

Summer is finally here!  The kids are out of school, and backyard barbecues are taking place all over the nation.  After the year we had in 2020, and most people having chosen not to take a vacation, you can almost rest assured that families will be out in full force this year.

With this in mind, we thought we would offer a few great vacation ideas to help you plan, as well as some places that would be great for just a few days away.  We all need time to recharge and some well-deserved play in the sunshine.

Here are some of the best places to check out this summer!

The Metropolitan Museum of Art

1000 Fifth Ave, New York, NY 10028

The Metropolitan Museum of Art maintains a museum and library of art in the City of New York. Its main collections include arms and armor, ancient Near Eastern art, Asian art, costumes, drawings and prints, European sculpture and decorative arts, Greek and Roman art, Islamic art, medieval art, modern and contemporary art, musical instruments, photographs, and the Robert Lehman Collection, as well as the arts of Africa, Oceania, and the Americas. The institution was founded in 1870 and is based in New York, New York.

Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum

1071 Fifth Avenue, New York, NY 10128

The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, often referred to as The Guggenheim, is the permanent home of a continuously expanding collection of Impressionist, Post-Impressionist, early Modern, and contemporary art and features special exhibitions throughout the year. The cylindrical building, wider at the top than at the bottom, was conceived as a “temple of the spirit.” Its unique ramp gallery extends up from ground level in a long, continuous spiral along the outer edges of the building to end just under the ceiling skylight.

Times Square

West 42nd Street to West 47th Street, New York, NY 10128

Times Square is a major commercial intersection, tourist destination, entertainment center, and neighborhood in New York City.  Brightly lit by numerous billboards and advertisements, it stretches from West 42nd to West 47th Streets and is sometimes referred to as “the Crossroads of the World,” “the Center of the Universe,” “the heart of the Great White Way,” and “the heart of the world.” One of the world’s busiest pedestrian areas, it is also the hub of the Broadway Theater District and a major center of the world’s entertainment industry. In addition, times Square is one of the world’s most visited tourist attractions, drawing an estimated 50 million visitors annually. Approximately 330,000 people pass through Times Square daily, many tourists, while over 460,000 pedestrians walk through Times Square on its busiest days. Formerly known as Longacre Square, Times Square was renamed in 1904 after The New York Times moved its headquarters to the newly erected Times Building, now One Times Square.

Best Hikes Near #New York City

Summer is nearly upon us, which means you’re probably starting to think about ways to enjoy The Great Outdoors! Hiking is one of the most rewarding summer activities – you explore new areas, get in touch with nature, and get great exercise. While New York City is more readily known for Broadway and skyscrapers, its proximity to the Appalachian Mountains means there are some decent trail options around the city. Here is a list of awesome hikes you can do if you’re in the Greater New York City area.

Hudson River Greenway

This one is for beginner hikers or those who don’t have the time or means to travel outside the city. It’s a popular walking, jogging, and biking path along the Hudson River up the west side of Manhattan. It runs from Battery Park all the way to Riverside Park, nearly at the other end of the island. The trail is paved and flat, running about 5 miles. There are awesome views of the skyline, the river, and New Jersey beyond it.

If you want to get out of the city for better scenery and more challenging hikes, read on!

Breakneck Ridge

Located about an hour north of Grand Central Station by train, Breakneck Ridge is a hike that’s easily completed as a day trip from NYC, even for those without a car. You’ll get off the train in the town of Cold Spring, which is a quaint small town oriented around a single main street. It’s worth building some time into your day to have breakfast here at one of the cute cafes to fuel up before your hike.

To get to the trailhead from town, you can either take an Uber or walk towards Hudson Highlands State Park. There’s a marked path along the main road that will take you to the trailhead safely behind a guardrail (the trailhead is just past an underpass on a highway). Ignore Google Maps when it tries to tell you it will take you an hour and a half to get there! Just follow the signs.

As the name implies, Breakneck Ridge is for the brave at heart who aren’t afraid of a challenge. The trail starts off as a steep, unrelenting rock scramble. It goes up to several peaks with breathtaking views of the Hudson River before winding down through the woods, past some ruins, and back into town.

Anthony’s Nose

Another Hudson Valley Hike you can get to via the Metro North train is Anthony’s Nose (however, getting to the actual trailhead is much easier with a car). This hike is less exhilarating than Breakneck Ridge, but still has plenty of ups and downs and some rock scrambling. There are sweet views from the “nose” right above the bridge. You might even see a train go by on the tracks along the river while you’re taking a break above. Unless you want a short nature walk, make sure you take the Camp Smith Trail to get the full experience.

When you’re done, reward yourself with a craft brew and a snack at Peekskill Brewery.

Things to Do for the Fourth of July in New York City

Everyone’s favorite summer holiday is quickly approaching! Nothing says July 4th like BBQs, pool days, parades, and fireworks! But with the country beginning to emerge from the worst of it, some celebrations are returning in the area. Read on to see what’s happening around New York City this Independence Day and gather up some ideas for your Fourth of July weekend.

Macy’s Fireworks

The nation’s largest Independence Day celebration is right here in New York! Macy’s always puts on a fantastic firework show and if you can get yourself to a good viewing spot, you’re in for a treat! The only trouble is, as of right now, we’re not sure where they’ll be launched from. Macy’s usually changes up the location they launch from, including whether they’re launching from the Hudson or the East River. Be sure to stay tuned here to find out the location when it does get announced!

Fireworks Cruise

If you want the best chance of an unobstructed view of the fireworks, book yourself on a fireworks cruise. There are lots of different styles of cruises available, so you might have to dig to find the one that’s right for you (and your budget). Here are a couple of options to get you started:

·   Full Moon – An exclusive and intimate adults-only cruise on a restored vintage yacht.

·   Circle Line – A family-friendly and relatively affordable cruise with a live DJ.

·   Manhattan II – a large luxury vessel, bookings come with private tables and hors d’oeuvres.

Go to a Baseball Game

As the ultimate American pastime, baseball pairs perfectly with Independence Day! And New York City’s baseball teams, the Yankees and the Mets just happen to be facing off this year on July 4th. The evening game starts at 7:08 pm over at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx. Tickets will be sold in limited numbers called “pods” to try to keep social distancing and limited capacity within the stadium. At the time of writing, Yankee Stadium is allowed to be at 33% capacity, but more pods will get released as local regulations change. Check back here for more information as the 4th approaches.

Rockaway Beach

Cooling off at the beach is the perfect way to spend a sweltering Fourth of July! And New York City’s favorite beach is arguably Rockaway Beach in Queens. Located on a barrier island in the Atlantic Ocean, the area is super cute with pastel-colored condos.

The beach is vibrant and lively, with all sorts of things going on. You’ll find a boardwalk over FIVE MILES long that you can stroll and people watch. All along it are vendors selling delicious summer treats and drinks. If you’re feeling sporty, the beach is popular for volleyball, surfing, and even skateboarding. It’s also a great swimming beach.

You can easily spend the whole day at Rockaway Beach, as there are public restrooms, BBQ areas to make a meal, and playgrounds to keep the kids entertained.

Arboretums and Botanical Gardens to Visit in New York City

When considering a vacation, or even just a day out with the family, why not consider visiting a local arboretum or botanical garden?  You can enjoy a delightful getaway with a visit to one of these beautiful gateways to all that nature has to offer.

Arboretums and botanical gardens work to promote common respect and educate with a drive towards an appreciation of the world of gardening and the insects that work to pollinate our plants and flowers. 

These nature monuments are just waiting to be discovered and welcome all visitors for a day of tranquility, enjoying their peaceful beauty.  Make sure to check out one of the arboretums or botanical gardens listed below.

Brooklyn Botanic Garden

990 Washington Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11225

Brooklyn Botanic Garden is an urban botanic garden that connects people to the world of plants, fostering delight and curiosity while inspiring an appreciation and sense of stewardship of the environment.

Japanese Hill-and-Pond Garden

1000 Washington Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11225

The Japanese Hill-and-Pond Garden is one of the oldest and most visited Japanese-inspired gardens outside Japan. It is a blend of the ancient hill-and-pond style and the more recent stroll-garden style, in which various landscape features are gradually revealed along winding paths.  The garden features artificial hills contoured around a pond, a waterfall, and an island, along with carefully placed rocks. Architectural elements include wooden bridges, stone lanterns, a viewing pavilion, a Shinto shrine, and a dramatic vermilion-colored wooden torii.

New York Botanical Garden

2900 Southern Blvd, Bronx, NY 10458

The New York Botanical Garden is an advocate for the plant world. The Garden pursues its mission through its role as a museum of living plant collections arranged in gardens and landscapes across its National Historic Landmark site; through its comprehensive education programs in horticulture and plant science; and through the wide-ranging research programs of the International Plant Science Center.

Creative Little Garden

530 E 6th St, New York, NY 10009

The Creative Little Garden has been an oasis of tranquility in New York’s East Village since 1978. It’s a “community backyard” maintained by volunteers from the surrounding neighborhood. There are no plots tended by individual gardeners, instead, members collaborate on the landscaping of the whole park. Everyone, not only members, can relax, read, have lunch, work on your laptop or just enjoy the sights, sounds, and smells of our garden.

Alice’s Garden

34th Street and Tenth Avenue, New York, NY 10001

For the fifty years that Alice Parsekian lived in this area, she worked diligently to keep her neighborhood clean. For twenty of those years, she maintained this small plot of land across the street from where she lived on 34th. She planted flowers and tended to them on a regular basis. Today, there is a brick path that leads visitors into this secret oasis named for Alice, who died in 2010 at the age of eighty-six.

Best Places to See the Sunset in New York City

New York City is the ultimate concrete jungle so it’s not the first place you might think of for natural wonders. But the city that never sleeps is surprisingly a great place to catch the sunset! There’s something about that golden glow on the buildings and the evening light reflecting in the many panes of glass on skyscrapers that’s truly special.

Whether you’ll be taking a long trip in NYC or just passing through La Guardia on a quick one-nighter, you should try to catch at least one sunset in the city. We’ve rounded up some of the best places to catch it from.

The Brooklyn Bridge

The Brooklyn Bridge spans the East River, so since the sun sets in the West, it’s probably not the first place you would think to catch a sunset. And while it’s true you won’t see the sun slipping below the horizon from the bridge, what you do see might be even better. From your vantage point, the sun will be setting right behind Manhattan, so you’ll see the skyline silhouetted against an explosion of color.

To get onto the Brooklyn Bridge, you’ll need to go to either City Hall in Lower Manhattan or to Borough Hall just outside of Downtown Brooklyn. There’s a mile-long path that goes across the top tier of the bridge (above vehicle traffic) for bikes and pedestrians. Make sure you stay on the appropriately marked path and don’t drift into the bike lane! It can get very crowded on nice days, but less so in the evenings, which is another reason to go at sunset.

Top of the Rock

Since NYC has so many tall buildings, it helps to view a sunset from up high. At the Top of the Rock Observation Deck, you’re treated to breath-taking views any time of day. But sunset is a truly spectacular time for 360˚ views of the sky and city while the sun sets behind the Empire State Building. You can get tickets here.

Coney Island

If you’re a fan of watching sunsets from the beach (and who isn’t?) you’re going to want to make sure to catch a sunset from Coney Island. While the angle means that you won’t see the sun dropping below the water, you’ll still get to enjoy all the pretty colors reflecting on the ocean. Coney Island is a fun place to be in the afternoon and evening, too. Make a day of it by hitting the beach, strolling the boardwalk, and grabbing a hotdog from Nathan’s Famous for dinner.

Manhattanhenge

This one is a bonus, because it doesn’t happen every night. For just a couple of magical nights a year, the Earth is aligned so that the sunset falls in line with Manhattan’s grid. This means if you’re on any numbered street that follows the grid – such as 42nd street – you will see the sun setting at the end of the road when you look to the West! If you’re planning a trip to Manhattan this month, you’re in luck, because Manhattanhenge is occurring over Memorial Day Weekend.

Things to Do for Mother’s Day In New York City

Mother’s Day is coming up next month! The moms in our lives work so hard and give so much, so it’s important to take a day to make them feel special. Whether you’re celebrating your own mother, a step-mother, the mother of your children, or a friend who is a mom, here are some ideas of wonderful things to do with her.

Jacob’s Pickles

Since Mother’s Day always falls on a Sunday, it’s traditional for many people to take their mom out for brunch. This is always a winning idea, and in New York City, there’s no better place for brunch than Jacob’s Pickles. This restaurant specializes in Southern comfort food and craft cocktails! Please note, this is a super popular brunch spot so you’ll need to make a reservation and limit your dining time to one hour (they’re also offering curbside pickup).

Paint & Sip

For a fun and unique way to spend Mother’s Day, book tickets to a Paint and Sip by APlus Events. You can choose your own adventure on Saturday, May 8th: either the afternoon session painting a masterpiece while enjoying brunch and bottomless mimosas or the more risqué evening session painting nude male models while enjoying dinner and sangria. There will be a cash bar on-site and you’ll be supporting a Black woman-owned small business.

Apotheke Academy

If you and your mom can’t get together in person but still want to celebrate together, take a virtual mixology class through Apotheke! This awesome cocktail bar is offering virtual classes through Apotheke Academy at Home. Your live class will be streamed over zoom and it’s perfect for beginners and experienced cocktail makers alike. Once you book it, they’ll reach out to let you know what to have on hand for the big day. And, if you decide to skip the class and just drink cocktails, they do offer cocktails to go!

River Cruise

Is your mom always up for an adventure? If so, take her for a Brunch Cruise on the Hudson River! Hornblower Cruises and Events is offering the cruise the Saturday before Mother’s Day from Pier 40. You and your mom will enjoy fresh air and awesome skyline views! Call the company for more details.

Battery Park

If you’re trying to be safe due to COVID-19, an outdoor celebration is the way to go. How about taking a stroll around Battery Park? At this southern tip of Manhattan, you’ll be treated to wonderful views of the Statue of Liberty and get to enjoy lots of historic monuments. There are plenty of benches dotted around the park too, in case you want to bring a picnic!

Chef’s Table at Brooklyn Fare

If your mom is more of the traditional type, you might want to treat her to a night out at a renowned restaurant. Consider Chef’s Table at Brooklyn Fare, which has the distinction of 3 Michelin Stars. This extremely high-end tasting menu is made up of perfectly created Japanese dishes inspired by French techniques. This will be a Mother’s Day meal you won’t soon forget! Reservations are required.
