Summer is in full swing in Tribeca. If you and the family are looking to get out of your Woolworth Tower Residences condo, soak up some rays—and see the sights while you're at it—here are some ideas to safely shake off the cabin fever.
Admire the Flowers and Fountains in City Hall Park
Once the site of rabble-rousing Revolutionary rallies, City Hall Park now provides a soothing retreat from the surrounding Manhattan streets. Residents of the Woolworth Tower Residences have the luxury of its lawns, flower beds, and the playful Jacob Wrey Mould fountain shooting arcs of water into the air.
Reflect on a Major Moment in History
The 9/11 Memorial occupies the spots where the iconic World Trade Centre towers stood and fell. Reflecting Absence is a sobering design, featuring the largest human-made waterfalls in the US. Around these are the names of those who died in the attacks of September 11, 2001 and February 26, 1993. Only a 15-minute walk from your condo; it is worth the short journey to spend some reflective time with the family here.
Spin Down the Hudson River Greenway
Feel Manhattan melt away with a family cycle along the Hudson River Greenway. This 13-mile-long path skims the Hudson River, taking in Hudson River Park, the Cherry Walk, the Little Red Lighthouse, and the Grecian Temple (which was built in 1925 to greet leisure drivers). No bike of your own? Not a problem! You can rent a Citi Bike for just $12 a day to explore the world that surrounds you at The Woolworth Tower Residences.
