WHAT TO SEE
Here are a few of my favorite places all around New York! I love them for their architecture, history and the fun times that were had!
MoMA | MUSEUM OF MODERN ART
MoMA has been important in developing and collecting modernist art, and is often identified as one of the largest and most influential museums of modern art in the world. MoMA's collection offers an overview of modern and contemporary art, including works of architecture,drawing, painting, sculpture, photography, prints, illustrated books and artist's books, film, and electronic media.
A block long and a block wide and just a short walk from the Hudson River. Chelsea Market has become in just fifteen years one of the greatest indoor food halls of the world, with more than thirty-five vendors purveying everything from soup to nuts, wine to coffee, cheese to cheesecake. Attracting 6 million national and international visitors annually, it is one of the most trafficked, and written-about, destinations of any kind in New York City.
The Mall at the World Trade Center was an indoor underground shopping mall that was located in the basement concourse, which was located underneath the main World Trade Center site.
One of the oldest bridges in the United States. Completed in 1883, it connects the boroughs of Manhattan and Brooklyn by spanning the East River. Bike or walk across it on a sunny day! Also makes for a great photo-op.
Located at the crossroads of Broadway between John and Fulton Streets, this fully digital transit and retail hub will serve as New York City’s next great public space and integrates architectural ingenuity that fuses history, art, and sustainable engineering.
THE WHITNEY MUSEUM
This is my friends and I at an event at The Whitney on Halloween. The Whitney focuses on 20th- and 21st-century American art. Its permanent collection comprises more than 21,000 paintings, sculptures, drawings, prints, photographs, films, videos, and artifacts of new media by more than 3,000 artists.
THE HIGH LINE
The High Line (also known as High Line Park) is a 1.45-mile-long (2.33 km) linear park created on an elevated section of a disused New York Central Railroad spur called the West Side Line. It has spurred real estate development in the neighborhoods that lie along the line, and increased real estate values and prices along the route, the result of a "halo effect". It's a beautiful place to take a walk on a sunny day!
UNION SQUARE GREENMARKET
"The farm comes to the city" as a network of fresh produce, meats, cheese, seafood, and flower markets come together throughout the five boroughs (the Union Square is the largest). Open Mon, Wed, Fri, Sat. from 8:00am to 6:00pm.
GRAND CENTRAL TERMINAL
Beautiful ornate train station - so much of the city’s history here. There is also a great cafeteria which includes Shake Shack and Irving Farm Coffee Roasters, as well as a Grand Central Market.
9/11 MEMORIAL MUSEUM
The National September 11 Memorial is a tribute of remembrance to the nearly 3,000 people killed in the terror attacks of September 11, 2001 at the World Trade Center site. An emotional sight worth seeing.
