Flushing Meadows Corona Park — explore your day here and spend the evening at the Meadow Lake

Hoboken Pier C Park — Enjoy the beautiful New York Skyline from this park and walk alongside the waterfront

Roosevelt Island — One of the most peaceful places I have been to. Visit 4freedomspark, smallpox hospital ruins, and walk along the waterfront.

The Oculus at the World Trade Center — Oculus was built to maximize the effect of the autumnal equinox rays (coinciding with the skylight opening on or around September 11 every year). The design of this building resembles a bird being released from a child’s hand.
