While many are mourning the end of summer this Labor Day , I thought it would be good to remind you it’s not really the end of summer. We have more than two weeks left! If you start school this week, well yes, it does feel more like the end but officially we have time. Time to enjoy all summer offers us. For me it’s often the best part of summer when the weather often mysteriously turns this weekend to slightly cooler, less brutal, making it easier to enjoy all summer has to offer… Gardens, dining outdoors, the ocean…. While this week the focus is so much on lower Manhattan, I thought I would follow the lead but stray from the obvious topic. My favorite thing I think about New York is its never ending sub worlds. The many experiences to be had here. Recently I took a friend to dinner before she left to go back home to Italy and thought I should pick a real “New York” location. The statue of Liberty feeling pretty New York.
We had dinner at Giginos a restaurant in Wagner Park where you can have a very nice meal eating outside, overlooking a field of grass, possibly listen to live park music, overlooking the water with a full view of Lady Liberty. After dinner we sat in a garden in Wagner Park, a tiny garden which I think is one of my favorite in the city.
When we sat there taking in the sites we thought this is not what many think of when they think of Manhattan,yet this is very much a part of the wonderful island.
