TRAVEL: Places To Spend Your Extra Sunshine!

Starting this weekend, on March 14th, Daylight Savings is going to give us a few extra hours of much needed sunlight. We would hate for those to go unused so we collected a list of some of your favorite artists outdoor locations so you can get out and shake off some of those winter blues!


John V. Lindsay East River Park, Manhattan, NY

While not having the notoriety of Central Park or Washington Square Park, East River Park is no slouch. Located in Manhattan stretching from Montgomery Street to 12th street, East River Park is a welcome space for the always-busy Manhattan.
