Some NYC Suggestions

Marty and I had a great time in NYC. Much of this was the result of the apartment where we stayed. We also did a number of free things. Here are some ideas that might help if you decide to go to NYC.

Apartment: Top floor of a 7 story building in the South Street area of Lower Manhatten.



View of Brooklyn Bridge (above 2) and looking back at Lower Manhattan, both from the apartment

Benefits:
• we had an outdoor terrace that looked directly onto the Brooklyn Bridge and Pier 17.
• The view of the East River gave us the feeling that we weren't in NYC. We've stayed in other places where our view was of the Brownstones on the other side of the street.
• restaurants, bars, and shops of the Water Street/South Seaport area are literally 2 minutes from the building's front door
• very inexpensive for NYC.
• 15 minute walk from: Wall Street, Battery Park, St. Paul's Cathedral, Ground Zero
• Great places to run: 50 minute run over Manhattan & Brooklyn Bridges with very few traffic stops.

Running across the Brooklyn Bridge

• The apartment was a great size and very clean














Free things

• Staten Island Ferry. It's a free 25 minute ride past the Statute of Liberty. Jump on at the Staten Island Ferry Terminal next to Battery Park (15 minute walk from the apartment)

• Tent and Trails outdoor store. Lots of great deals. Emphasis on climbing.

Are those trail shoes on the Brooklyn Bridge? At least Marty was prepared.

It was great to meet you finally and to see your wonderful family at P.H.O.U.R.

Thanks
