I love NY! Every time I visit, I feel like I’ve barely scratched the surface of what this great city has to offer. This time around, I had 6 days to take in the city and here are some highlights from my trip.
#5 – Occupy LEGO Land inside Occupy Wall Street
This movement even has its own facebook site…
#4 – Eataly
Eataly is a sprawling 50,000 square foot gourmet food and wine market featuring artisanal Italian products and twelve restaurants from power trio Mario Batali, Joe Bastianich, and Lidia Bastianich. Simply put, this place is amazing!
#3 – Central Park
Central Park is a public park in the center of Manhattan, designed by Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux in 1858. It is a calm oasis in the middle of the “city that never sleeps.”
#2 – National September 11 Memorial & Museum
The 9/11 Memorial is a national tribute of remembrance and honor to the 2,983 poeple killed in the terror attacks of September 11, 2001 and February 26, 1993.
#1 – High Line
High Line is an urban park built on an elevated freight line that runs parallel to the Hudson River through the Meatpacking District, West Chelsea, and Hell’s Kitchen. The concrete pathway is beautifully landscaped with native plants and trees springing up along the tracks. High Line is my happy place – nature among the urban skyline, with coffee!
