"Yorkville!! Or as I call it, Little Europe"

Yorkville is a beautiful city that mimics scenery and architecture from countries all over Europe. Having traveled there a few times I like to call Yorkville, Little Europe.

Although Yorkville is mostly residential it does offer some amazing attractions such as restaurants and bars that have been standing for many decades. German bakeries and delicacies are numerous around this part of New York.

It is definitely a place to visit if you want to connect with your German (or European) ancestry. If you want to get away from the large and fast paced crowds that fill other parts of New York City, you will enjoy Yorkville for what it is, a large community with a small town feel.

"Don't underestimate Battery Park City"

Some people may not know that Battery Park City is a constructed part of the island; this small fact is enough to impress many tourists and visitors. When visiting Battery Park City I found that it is extremely crowded at times. If you don’t mind large crowds you will enjoy the breathtaking view of the Statue of Liberty, the Hudson River, Governors Island, Staten Island, and Ellis Island; as well as sculptures and art pieces scattered throughout this part of the city. There is an ingenious ribbon of park that surrounds parts of Battery Park City that seemingly blend into the city. Although this part of New York City is mostly residential it does offer some great attractions. One attraction that is not to be missed is the Winter Garden Atrium. The Atrium is an amazing place to visit and is great for getting away from the hustle and bustle of the city. If you are a history buff, like me, you will also find interest in The World Financial Center and The Museum of Jewish Heritage. Battery Park City is a place not to be missed for the avid traveler.
