The Elevated Acre

New York City is an exciting city, but sometimes, we all want to rise above the hustle and bustle and relax. At the elevated acre, located in the skies above the streets of the financial district, visitors and locals can take a break and relax!

This little slice of a park in the sky offers terrific views of the Brooklyn Bridge, Hudson River, and sculptures and art to enjoy! Plus, there’s a beer garden open to the public to enjoy a cold brew while relaxing and taking in the views of the city!

The Whispering Gallery

Grand Central Station is one of the staples of New York, and while there, everyone should experience the acoustic phenomenon known as The Whispering Gallery. Near the lower concourse of the station is an arch and dome that holds a neat trick.

Stand and face the corner of the arches with a partner standing on the opposite side, far away. You’ll find that the dome carries your voice so well that a whisper can travel far and sound like it’s right in someone’s ear! It’s almost unbelievable!

The Tenement Museum

New York City is one of the great museum cities of the world, from the Guggenheim to The Met and plenty more. But one of the most fascinating is a museum that focuses on the regular people and immigrants of the city’s past—The Tenement Museum.

The Tenement Museum offers guided walking tours and residential tours of old tenement buildings where New York City immigrants lived in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. It’s an intriguing look at the city’s past and the everyday people who helped build it into the marvel it is today!

As one of the gem cities of the world, there are plenty more hidden gem attractions in New York City! Which attraction will you try first: a beer at the elevated acre or a history tour at The Tenement Museum?
