NY Love Story A.D. 2019
I don’t like romantic comedies. And I can tell you why. Once, it used to be my favorite genre, but I grew up since then (a bit). Also — I moved to NY. Romantic comedies just don’t ...

Why It’s Important To Not Look Like Shit
Here is my question: Why do you think it’s a good idea to look like shit at home? Some people put on their worst clothes at home - clothes with holes, stretched out, worn out, old and ugly. (B...

You Have to Kiss a Lot of Frogs To… Find the Frog That Rises to Your Standards
I’ve had a few men in my life so far, and they always disappeared at some point (nowadays, I realize that they actually did me a favor). Once, I used to think it was the end of the world, but ...

You Have To Punch Back
There is a saying in NY: If you can make it here, you can make it anywhere. And there is a reason for that. I always say that a relationship with this city is like a relationship with an abusive boy...

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.
