Brooklyn Bridge Park

With so many activities to pick from, you’ll provide fun for the entire family with one visit. For more information you could click here

The High Line

The High Line, constructed on an abandoned elevated railway, offers an oasis away from the noise of the city. Found on Manhattan’s West Side, guests at the park can take in gorgeous views of landscapes, enjoying some peace and quiet with beautiful scenery. Still currently under construction, part of the park is open to the public, and walking in this park allows you to see views of Manhattan. Click here for more information. 

Washington Square Park

Washington Square Park earned its park status in 1828. Since then, the park has gone through stages of transformation. In 1828, it existed as a cemetery, parade area, and place for public executions. Now, the famous Washington Arch, the brainchild of Stanford White, sits here as a famous 1885 landmark, built to celebrate the one-hundred-year anniversary of George Washington’s inauguration. Locals and visitors alike can enjoy tours of the park, which include the Arch, and jazz performances. For more information click here
