Deana Bianco | November 4th, 2010

On a brisk fall day, my boyfriend and I decided to do something cultural in NYC. Our first stop was the Ellis Island Ferry in Battery Park.

Whether you are a NYC resident or visiting, my recommendation for a peaceful morning is exploring the Williamsburg Bridge. What is more charming than a bird’s eye view of the Manhattan skyline? As you walk along, listen to the J and M subway rattle its way from one borough to the next. From [...]
