The High Line
North Brooklyn Farms
Riverside ParkNew York, United StatesA four mile trail running alongside the Hudson River stretches from 72nd to 158th Street on Manhattan’s western side. It’s a great spot to come relax in the afternoon while people-watching and waiting for sun to set against the backdrop of the Jersey City skyline. #park #hiking #trail #waterfront
Asbury Splash Park
Silverball Museum – Asbury Park, NJAsbury Park, United StatesTOTALLY WORTH IT. Basically a retro arcade — pay a cover and all games inside are free. Pong, old school skeeball, and a LOT of pinball. Best kid’s attraction in AP. Contender for best adult’s attraction. #arcade #pinball
The Doughnut Project
The Doughnut ProjectNew York, United StatesI went to Dougnut Project with one goal in mind: settle the debate about “The Everything Doughnut.” In NYC, bagels are everything, so the idea of the Everything Doughnut is very tangible. And for only $3.75 you might actually give up bagels…because this donouhht is EVERYTHING. The mix of cream cheese frosting with garlic and seeds is the ultimate sweet and savory NY treat. Trust me. GO. #cheap-eats #donuts
East River Ferry
World Trade Center
World Trade CenterNew York, United StatesEmotionally draining but truly fascinating seeing the bravery of these heroes. A deep and painful experience that enables to live life everyday as it’s last. Live actual recordings on telephones of those who spoke to their loved ones on the planes.
Images of the hijackers going through security.
Photos and being 70 feel below ground zero.
An amazing museum built where I signed my name with love ❤️ for those who died. Worth a one time visit! 28$ a ticket #free #free #history #gallery #statue
Bushwick FleaBrooklyn, United StatesQuaint little flea market in a pretty untouched neghborhood. Kind of pricey, but I found snazzy sunglasses for a decent price. Check out some street art on your walk from the L train!
The Hills on Governers Island
The Mall and Literary Walk
The Mall and Literary WalkNew York, United StatesCentral Park is a must visit spot on your New York itinerary, but instead of hitting the usual suspects such as the Strawberry Fields, try the Mall and Literary Walk instead. It serves as the gathering spot for the park’s pedestrian visitors, street performers, bicyclists, and rollerbladers.
