The massive common space is the green oasis in the middle of the big city and the world’s most famous public park. Its 843 landscaped acres host meadows, 20,000 or so trees, 58 miles of walking paths, 36 bridges and arches and every kind of outdoor activity like picnics, ice-skating, concerts, lawn bowling, baseball, nature walks and more. It’s a sight every NYC visitor should see.
Philadelphia is located about 95 miles southwest of New York City in the state of Pennsylvania.To get from New York City to Philadelphia there are several transportation options. Philadelphia is an ambitious, but do-able day trip from New York City. I recommend spending at least one night there to make travel worthwhile and enable yourself to really get a taste of Philadelphia. Philadelphia is home to the Liberty Bell and also famous for their namesake cheese steaks.
Coney Island’s sunny skies and rolling waves make for the perfect getaway. If being active at the beach is more your idea of fun than just catching some rays, Coney Island also offers exciting recreation opportunities. With courts for beach volleyball, handball, and basketball as well as playgrounds and amusement rides, the beach and boardwalk can provide hours of entertainment.Coney Island is also a great place to visit in the off-season.
