The Bridges of Madison County - A Cautionary Tale
I’ve been coming back to old movies recently and watched one of my favorite movies of all time – “The Bridges of Madison County” with my favorite actress, Meryl Str...

Brooklyn vs. Manhattan
It’s funny how Manhattan and Brooklyn are different, even though they are only a river away. They are actually just one subway stop away (which is a few minutes’ distance). A lot of peop...

Women’s Surf Film Festival
I finally attended Women’s Surf Film Festival that took place at Rockaway Beach Surf Club on the last Friday and Saturday of July. I didn’t see all the movies (they’re mostly short...

Birthday
35 years ago, a miracle happened and I came into this world. And everything changed. I’m kidding. Nothing changed, except for the fact that the world got a bit confused. When I was a little ...

Yelp & Health
If you are running a restaurant business in NYC, you always fear of two things: Health Department and Yelp reviews. Health Department comes to a restaurant once a year and checks everything &ndash...

Racism Is Still Alive
I just had a chance to watch a new movie called “Crown Heights” and I must say it was a really painful screening for me. Had I watched it back in Poland, I would probably look at it as j...

Trends for Life
September just started and brought with it not only Pumpkin Spice Latte (of which I wrote a year ago on Just Like NY), but also some “trends” for this Fall and Winter. And I guess for li...

Step 40 – Do You Always Need To Change?
I keep writing about change and about how important it is to work on yourself in order to become the best version of oneself, but I also believe that there are times that you really shouldn’t ...

The Worst Type of Guy You Should Always Avoid
I recently watched one of Matthew’s Hussey’s videos (I wrote about him on Just Like NY already), and he said a very interesting thing: the most dangerous man for a woman is not a guy who...

Step 39: The Map of Happiness
Do you think that something like a map of happiness really exists…? I believe it does. I just watched an interview (on Impact Theory again; which is the YouTube channel I mentioned you a few ...

NY ID CARD
NY is full of paradoxes, as is the whole United States. You can clearly see it just about every situation when you have to deal with something “official”. Last year, NY mayor De Blassio ...

Step 38 – Don’t give up on this year yet
  We are in the middle of August and that means that over 7 months of this year are gone. But the good news is that 5 of them are still left. It’s almost half of the year! 5 months is roug...

Walk With Me, Part 1 – Brookfield Place and The Statue of Liberty

added: 2017-07-06 , category: Discover NY

Many people who visit NY and want to see Statue of Liberty take 5 subway line and get off at Bowling Green station, next to Battery Park. After they spot the Statue, they walk between buildings to World Trade Center. What I would suggest is a different solution. Take the E train and get off at World Trade Center station, then head to Brookfield Place (you can also visit Freedom Tower and the World Trade Center memorial). Many people have no idea that this place even exists. It’s a brand-new shopping center – and it’s not that I recommend you necessarily shop there (it’s pretty expensive). Still, it’s worth to check out the building itself (both lower and upper part of it), especially the palm trees that are inside (palm trees are amazing anywhere). Grab a coffee, a donut or your lunch there (there is a food court upstairs). Then go for a walk along the river, which will take you to Battery Park. It’s really pretty and calming. You can sit on a bench and have your lunch, or move to the grass and sit there, looking at the Statue. You can also do it the other way around – get off close to Statue (there is Starbucks there, too, so you can grab some beverage if you want to) and then head along the river to Brookfield Place and have lunch there. Either way is better than walking around the concrete that’s inevitable once you get off at Bowling Green.
