Spring Day Trip into NYC

by admin

A nice thing about living at The Rivington is its close proximity to cultural hub New York City! Manhattan is always just a short ferry, bus or PATH ride away. With spring in full swing, this is a great time to take the quick and convenient trip into the city. Take in the sights, maybe a show, or just relax at one of the many different parks! Here are a few of our favorite options when your next trip into Manhattan from The Rivington.

Pack a lunch, bring some friends, and head to the park for a relaxing lunch excursion. If Central Park seems too overwhelming, here’s a great link to a variety of parks also in the city that should suit your needs. Another great option is the High Line! A lush park right in the middle of a busy Manhattan Avenue, the High Line also plenty of restaurants and bars dotted along it’s multi-block stretch. It’s a great combination of the outdoors with a cosmopolitan vibe.

You see them advertised on every TV commercial and train, but has there been a Broadway play you’ve been dying to see in the city?  This spring is the perfect time to take in a show with many big upcoming Broadway performances starting now. The Tony Awards aren’t until June, but here’s a list to get you started on what plays to see.

If you’re feeling adventurous and want to make NYC a full day event, this is a great link to how you could spend your day. It includes things like visiting the Rockefeller Center, Saint Patrick’s Cathedral, Central Park, a walk across the Brooklyn Bridge, a trip through Wall Street, and a ferry ride past the Statue of Liberty. Some of these seem a little too touristy but hey! There’s a reason so many tourists are headed to these destinations.

riNYC is full of landmarks and sights you won’t find anywhere else – while it’s not always practical to live in the city, having it be your backyard is not a bad perk to have!
