Summer is in full swing in New York City, sending Manhattanites flocking to parks and waterways to breathe the fresh air and soak up some rays. From their perch atop this iconic NYC landmark, owners of homes at The Woolworth Tower Residences can almost reach out and touch the waters and green spaces around the island. Here are just a few of the best spots to celebrate the summer vibe around these Tribeca condos.
Nearby Hudson River Park is a great place to start, whether on foot or astride a bicycle retrieved from the building’s private bike storage area conveniently located at ground level. This waterfront park features ample space for lounging, walking, sunning, cycling, and enjoying organized yoga and dance classes offered by the Hudson River Park Friends and the Hudson River Park Trust. Hudson River Park is also home to the newly opened Little Island park-within-a-park, where 132 concrete “tulips” elevate 2.7 acres of densely planted greenery ripe for exploration. Cyclists and adventurous walkers and joggers will love heading north along the Hudson River Greenway, which travels along the river as far as Grant’s Tomb and beyond.
For a cool and relaxing park experience, residents should head south from Hudson River Park to the intimate Pumphouse Park, a small circle of trees around a grassy clearing just steps from One World Trade Center. This verdant oasis features careful landscaping and enough shaded benches to ensure a good picnicking or reading spot no matter the time of day, while the western edge of the park looks out over the Hudson River and offers panoramic views of New Jersey.
If river breezes aren’t enough to keep residents cool on their summer outing, Manhattan’s booming ice cream and gelato scene has them covered. L’Arte Del Gelato near the Whitney Museum of American Art along the Hudson serves the finest Sicilian frozen treats made in the traditional Mediterranean style: created from fresh, natural ingredients and served in either coppetta or cono. Even their list of flavors, which features over a dozen options, is based on traditional favorites — although a few, like green tea, are a little newer than the centuries-old recipe.
After a day spent exploring these unique Manhattan sites, residents will be welcomed home via their private lobby before being whisked to their spacious Tribeca penthouse high above the city in a private elevator. There, they can unwind with a cocktail and watch the sunset over the Hudson from their balcony or oversized windows before retiring to their luxurious master bedroom for a night of cool and comfortable sleep amid the skyscrapers. Truly, there is no more sophisticated way to enjoy summer in New York, so contact our Team today to learn more about life at the Woolworth Tower Residences.
