5 walks outside Manhattan

New York, it of course is Times Square, the statue of liberty and the Empire State Building! But New York is above all a city of a thousand facets that deserve to be discovered! In my blog curiosities and trivia in NY, I walk at the New York choice of my outings and here I propose some walks to discover a New York and less touristy surroundings.

The disused industrial area of Bushwick is becoming the Mecca of Street Art and the most renowned artists come to speak! What are the surroundings of Morgan and Jefferson stations on the L line (at 15 Union Square) you will need to explore on a priority basis. Here you will find an overview!

This small neighborhood in Brooklyn which is located south of Carroll Gardens is not easily accessible and is allowing it to keep its charm! However, the weekend, shuttle Ikea which leaves Financial District you y take for free. Red Hook animation focuses on the docks and Van Brunt Street. Good ride!

I am often asked how do I support the noise and the bustle of New York. It's easy, on weekends, I am quiet places, away from the crowd of Manhattan. And what's better than a graveyard to find calm? Green-wood is really very nice and enjoyed in addition to stunning views of Manhattan.

An hour's train is only needed to arrive in Beacon, charming small village on the banks of the Hudson River. This is also where you will find a large centre of contemporary art, DIA: Beacon, installed in a former printing plant. The expedition is really worth a visit!

You are in New York City in the summer and in sweltering visits have exhausted you? Why not enjoy a beautiful beach away from the concrete of Manhattan day? You have deserved it well! Fire Island, a small strip of land south of Long Island is my favourite destination. I chose the very wild Watch Hill, plan the picnic!
