This article caters to the other half of the girl population, who just wants to see something they have never seen before and enrich their lives. Regardless of your preference, read on for a taste of New York from off the beaten path!


Great Graffiti Wall

Get a taste for city’s Urban flavor at the graffiti wall in Harlem, located at 106th street and Park Avenue. The wall borders the Jackie Robinson Education Complex, and is one of the most colorful places in the city!


25-foot Greenacre Park Waterfall

That’s right, a waterfall in New York City. The secret garden of the city is located on 51st Street. The midtown Greenacre Park is a quiet, serene escape from the city noise, and even better – lots of green!


The Spinning “Alamo”

Created in 1967 by Tony Rosenthal, a giant spinning cube sculpture rests at Lafayette and 8th street at Astor Place. It spins manually, so if you’re looking to give your guns a workout you can give it a whirl.
