The Freedom Tower and The River

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Half and Half.”

A few blocks away from work is the Hudson River Park, which is my favorite park in the city. Not only do you get a picturesque view of the Hudson River, downtown NYC, and Hoboken, but the park is also excellent for biking, running, or the simple joy of hanging out with friends.

Do you have a landscape or a particular place that you’d always love to come back to? This particular landscape is one of my favorites, and has been the subject of my many Instagram posts.

During summer, I sometime would spend lunch breaks on one of the benches there. There has been a time when Chris biked from 57th St. to W Houston St. to meet me for lunch (it took him around 15-20 mins to go downtown, and another 15-20 to get back. So that only left 20-30 mins for the “actual” meal!). I would also come here after work and wait for the sunset, as sunsets are very beautiful here.

Parks are one of the “luxuries” that every New Yorker gets to enjoy in the city, especially during the summer. The city gets crowded during the summer because of tourists, but I think there’s no better season to enjoy this beautiful city. There are a lot of free activities held at parks, too.

Hope you, too, are having a lovely summer! (Well, if you’re located in the Northern Hemisphere lol)
