Finding All Things Green in the Big Apple

Comments Off on Finding All Things Green in the Big Apple


As the dog days of summer approach, make the most out of these last bits of sunshine in some of Manhattan’s best green spaces that are perhaps not as well known (or crowded!) as our crown jewel, Central Park.

1. The smallest park in New York City is located in the heart of the Upper West Side.


2. Head uptown to Manhattan’s tippy-top neighborhood of Inwood to Ft. Tryon Park (also home to the Cloisters, Heather Gardens, and a HUGE dog run!)


3. Fancy a 25 foot waterfall in Midtown, anyone?


4. The Highline is a downtown staple, where kids and adults alike can hardly resist a little water play.  And stargazing!  And movies projected on buildings!  And music, constantly!  Too much fun, I tell you.


5. A quiet place to sit with your book and organic juice can be found in Nolita’s Elizabeth Street Garden.


6. Battery Park is packed with playgrounds and plenty of picnic spots for you and your littles.


7. The Museum of Modern Art allows visitors to use its sculpture gardens, sans the ticket price.  #artwin


8. Hudson River Park is the perfect place for water enthusiasts, because, free kayaking!


9. An acre of green space, elevated.  A bit hidden, but every bit worth the visit, especially for its views of the Brooklyn Bridge.

10. The East Village’s Creative Little Garden is a change of pace from Starbucks for freelancers, and also a lovely place to volunteer your time if flowers are your jam.
