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.
