As the weather continues to grow warmer, you're going to want to spend more and more time outside. Central Park and Bryant Park are very reliable options, but they can get a crowded. If you're downtown in the Financial District, check out the Elevated Acre, which is located at 55 Water Street. It tends to get crowded during the lunch hour with locals, but other times it's a peaceful haven for those want to spend time in a park without the hustle and bustle. Enjoy paths, gardens, and views of the East River, Brooklyn Bridge, and Governor's Island. To get there, just go to 55 Water Street and take the escalator up.
Bonus: There's movie screenings here in the summer!
