Why locals recommend it
This Financial District park has four beautiful-looking half courts with scenic views of the Hudson River. There’s a good after-work crowd, including some Wall Street types, plus paths for biking or jogging and lots of green spaces to picnic or lay out in the sun. Public restrooms are across the street. The run starts around 10 am on Saturday and Sunday. You have different levels of players on each court.

Good place to start exploring the south side of Manhattan, the Financial District, Wall Street, and the likes. Came on winter so the trees are dry. Good view overlooking the ocean, on clear weather Liberty is looking good. Easy access to subway system and ferries to Ellis Island.

“Make sure to go to the actual museum too! One of the best museums I've been too, and it is free after 5pm on Tuesdays. Go at 4:30pm to get tickets if you do decide to do the free entry.”

“A walk, peddle, or carriage ride through the crisscrossing pathways of Central Park is a must-do on anyone's New York City itinerary. In winter, you can even lace up your skates and glide across Wollman Rink. This huge park in the city center, a half-mile wide and 2.5 miles long, is one of the things that makes New York such a beautiful and livable city. Besides being a great place to experience a little nature, Central Park has many attractions within its borders, and most of them are free, making it one of the few cheap things to do in NYC. Some of the most popular places to visit include the Belvedere Castle, Strawberry Fields, the Central Park Zoo, and the Lake. If you are exploring the park on your own, start by picking up a map at one of the visitor centers and plot your routing.”

“Address 75 Broadway Date 1846 Where it gets its name It’s a common name for churches the world over. What it was before Two other Trinity Churches have stood here. One burned down during the Revolutionary War; the other was demolished in 1839 after weathering storm damage. Why it’s notable The brownstone church was built with a spire whose cross topped out at 281 feet, a towering presence in the skyline in the mid-1800s—and much of the rest of that century. The churchyard cemetery, which predates the current church, holds the graves of Alexander Hamilton, Hamilton’s wife Elizabeth Schuyler, Declaration of Independence signer Francis Lewis and early publisher William Bradford. What it is now It remains an active Episcopal parish with daily services, though many come here for afternoon guided tours that point out architectural and historical elements of the church. Fast fact Thanks to a land grant from Queen Anne in 1705, Trinity Church is one of NYC’s biggest landowners—its holdings were valued a couple of years back at $2 billion.”
