New York City has a waterfall, and it has to be one of, if not, the most peaceful place I’ve ever visited in Manhattan! The waterfall is located in Greenacre Park and is truly a hidden gem! I recommend coming here whenever you want to escape the fast-paced hustle and bustle of the city. Or just want to enjoy a peaceful lunch at one of the many tables facing the waterfall.
The tables tend to fill up quickly, but they have a quick turn over, so do not feel discouraged if all of the tables are taken when you arrive. There are also some additional benches off to the side if you just want to sit and relax.
PS: Don’t forget to bring your disinfectant wipes for the tables!
Oh, and Greenacre Park has a cafe called Carol’s Cafe, which seemed reasonably priced!
