We'll go on a walking tour of the Lower East Side, experiencing immigrant history and food. And, no summer is complete without baseball! Besides the Yankees and Mets, there are great minor league parks close to home where you can watch America's favorite pastime.
Our area also has some of the best parks in the country. If you haven't been to Governor's Island, it's time! Besides the inexpensive ferry ride and great bike paths, there are acres with stunning views of New York Harbor, zip lining, art installations and yes, even overnight tent camping -- done with New York flair, of course.
