It can’t be denied: in a city filled with magnificent buildings, New Yorkers have also always loved their outdoor space—especially when spring weather hits. And City Hall Park, one of the most-loved (and most-used) outdoor areas just steps away from the luxury Tribeca residences at Woolworth Tower, has been a gathering place for New Yorkers for centuries. Residents of the nearby Tribeca condos at The Woolworth Tower Residences can find plenty of places to walk, shop, explore, and feast in the park and surrounding outdoor spaces.
With over a dozen monuments to see and buildings dating as far back as 1812, there’s a ton of history to explore near the park. And what better way to do that than by taking yourself and some friends on a walking tour? Plan one on your own, or, if you’re feeling particularly athletic, join the team at On Course Run Tour for their "Brooklyn Bridge Run Tour." This 90-minute sightseeing adventure will take you from the steps of City Hall and across the river to the base of the Brooklyn Bridge, with lots of moments to pause and reflect on the beautiful sights and fascinating history. If you prefer getting your exercise on wheels rather than on foot, there’s also a bike path that will guide you out of the park and over the famous bridge.
Of course, there are times when you want to stick to your own borough. On those days, take a trip to the West Side, where you’ll find a collection of beautiful parks full of stunning views of the Hudson River and interesting things to do. A brisk walk through Rockefeller Park will reveal inventive playgrounds and tables for a quick game of chess or checkers. Take a breather inside Brookfield Place to grab a bite at one of their fabulous eateries, including L’Appart. This French restaurant is one of several to be found in the French market, Le District, and the menu changes weekly, so there’s always something new to try. Then take a moment to pamper yourself with a little retail therapy inside Brookfield Place at world-class shops like Bonobos, Bottega Veneta, Hermes, Madewell, and Paul Smith. Back outside, take in the views from the waterfront plaza at the North Cove Marina and imagine yourself sailing upon one of the many boats docked along the Hudson.
By the end of the day, all this outdoor exploration can work up an appetite. With several farmers markets and gourmet groceries in the area, you can also bring the outside home to your kitchen. Over at Westfield World Trade Center, pick out your produce weekly at the market on Oculus Plaza or grab some Italian fare while attending a wine-tasting or two at their Eataly location. Back at City Hall Park, you can fill your shopping bag with locally grown treats at the Greenmarket on Tuesdays and Fridays. With so many things to see and do, take some time to explore the great outdoors right outside The Woolworth’s luxury Downtown Manhattan condos this spring. The fresh air and fresh food will do you good.
