New York, A B C...

New York, A B C... | Travel in NYC: plan your trip | Scoop.it

A) Metropolitan Museum of Art The Met remains one of my favorite places in the entire city. It’s no doubt on every visitor’s agenda already, but that doesn’t make the breadth of its collections or the beauty of the building any less impressive. The best time to go is Saturday night, when the museum is open late and free from the afternoon’s crowds. I have some beloved spots—Astor Court (a re-creation of a Chinese garden courtyard), the Impressionist paintings room, the hall of clocks, the fully decorated period rooms, the little hidden gallery under the main staircase—but I’ll admit that my biggest thrill is finding out the name of that day’s admission-button color from the information desk. I’ve got “Poupon,” “Positano,” and “Barney” in my collection so far (1000 Fifth Ave. at 82nd St.; 212-535-7710).

B) Museum of Arts and Design While the Met is one of my favorites for historic art, MAD is hands down my top pick for new stuff. The focus here is on cool and clever artisan design and crafts, and the exhibits are fresh and smart. “Otherworldly: Optical Delusions and Small Realities” highlighted small-scale creations; “Slash: Paper Under The Knife” showcased the amazingly intricate things an artist can do with paper, by hand; and “Picasso to Koons: Artist as Jeweler” looked at well-known artists’ little-known work. In another tribute to the artists, the museum has an open studio on the sixth floor, where—every day—you can see and talk with an artist at work (2 Columbus Circle; 212-299-7777).

C) Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre Improv comedy now has a thriving scene in N.Y.C., holding its own against Chicago and L.A. It pretty much started at the UCB Theatre, thanks to four people you’ve probably heard of: Matt Besser, Amy Poehler, Ian Roberts, and Matt Walsh. Although that quartet has since gone on to bigger things, their theaters (the original in Chelsea and the new addition in the East Village) remain top breeding grounds for improv stars, as well as continuing homes for those who’ve found greater success. Writers and performers from 30 Rock, Conan, and Saturday Night Live regularly contribute to the daily roster of shows, and while the various other improv troupes display a wide range of skill, the low-cost tickets (usually $5 or $10) are always worth the gamble. On many a weekend night, I’ve ended up here for the late show just to see what was going on—and I’ve always been rewarded. (307 W. 26th St; 212-366-9176; 153 E. 3rd St.; 212-366-9231)

D) A Day in Red Hook, Brooklyn Red Hook has a history best known by non–New Yorkers for—depending on your age—its longshoreman past (which inspired On the Waterfront) and its setting as the home for the 2009 Real World cast. Both are long gone, but the semi-secluded peninsula retains some of its shipping-town feel, distinguishing it from the rest of Brooklyn. In the summers, I’ll spend a weekend afternoon here and feel like I’ve escaped to a New England town. My route is this: I start at Erie Basin (388 Van Brunt St.; 718-554-6147), where owner Russell Whitmore collects the most beautiful and unusual vintage jewelry (late-1800s gilt-bronze pig fob anyone?), which he arranges in the most beautiful and unusual ways. I got my engagement ring here and stare at his Tumblr (eriebasin.tumblr.com) regularly. Then it’s over to Fairway (480-500 Van Brunt St.; 718-694-6868) to grab sandwiches and peek at the old trolley car, deposited in back by local character Bob Diamond, as the first step of a never-realized dream to connect Red Hook to downtown Brooklyn. Lunch in hand, it’s time for a picnic in Louis Valentino, Jr. Park and Pier, looking out over New York Harbor and the Statue of Liberty. And no matter how stuffed I am (especially if I’ve opted for a pupusa from one of the Red Hook Ball Fields vendors instead of a deli sandwich), I make room for a Swingle—that’s a mini Key lime pie covered in chocolate and served on a stick—from Steve’s Authentic Key Lime Pies (204 Van Dyke St.; 718-858-5333), tucked away in Pier 41.

E) Jazz at the Triple Nickel I’m not actually a big jazz fan, but this long-running session, held every Sunday from 4 to 6 p.m., is something truly special no matter your taste in music (555 Edgecombe Ave. at W. 160th St., Studio 3F; 212-781-6595; donation suggested). Every weekend for decades, dozens of guests have made the pilgrimage to 555 Edgecombe (a.k.a. “the Triple Nickel”) to marvel at the building where Paul Robeson and Count Basie lived and to cram into the narrow living room of Marjorie Eliot and her son Rudel Drears. Once inside, you’re treated to an ever-changing lineup and one of the few intimate salon experiences left in the city; Marjorie even passes around cookies between sets. If the weather’s nice, I’ll get to the neighborhood early to visit the Morris-Jumel Mansion (65 Jumel Terr.; 212-923-8008), a Revolutionary War headquarters for George Washington and the one-time home of a post-duel Aaron Burr.

ponte di Brooklyn a New York

ponte di Brooklyn a New York | Travel in NYC: plan your trip | Scoop.it

Il Ponte di Brooklyn è possibile visitarlo per tutta la sua lunghezza a piedi, grazie alla passerella di legno sopraelevata che passa sopra le corsie riservate alle automobili. Da Manhattan a piedi, si accede al ponte tramite Centre Street, mentre a Brooklyn l’entrata pedonale si trova in Tilary Street. Da un’entrata all’altra sono circa 2,36 km, quindi si parla di una passeggiata andata e ritorno di oltre 5,5 km.

Il consiglio è:

 

ANDATA prendere la metro 2 o 3 e quindi scendere a Brooklyn in Clark Street e dirigersi verso il Brooklyn Bridge Park.

E’ una passeggiata fantastica nel bel quartiere di Brooklyn Heights, per non parlare della splendida vista e delle bellissime foto che si possono scattare con lo sfondo di Manhattan e in giornate soleggiate anche della Statua della Libertà.

 

RITORNO si percorre a piedi il ponte in direzione Manhattan con la vista dei grattacieli di fronte. Un’esperienza indimenticabile e anche molto romantica, specialmente se fatta al tramonto.

Ellis Island - FREE Port of New York Passenger Records Search

Ellis Island - FREE Port of New York Passenger Records Search | Travel in NYC: plan your trip | Scoop.it

Ellis Island è una delle quaranta isole delle acque di New York: divenne famosa dal 1894 in quanto stazione di smistamento per gli immigranti; venne adibita infatti a questa nuova funzione quando il governo federale assunse il controllo del flusso migratorio, resosi necessario per il massiccio afflusso di immigrati provenienti essenzialmente dall’Europa meridionale e orientale.

Visitare Ellis Island
E’ sufficiente prendere il battello da Battery Park che va verso la Statua della Libertà; dopo questa prima tappa prosegue per Ellis Island. Nell’isola c’è un bellissimo museo dell’immigrazione, il cui ingresso è incluso nei biglietti del battello. La visita a Ellis Island è inclusa, nel City Pass o nel New York Pass, oppure possono essere acquistati singolarmente.

 > To get to Battery Park
- By train, take the 1 or 9 train to the South Ferry station, 4 or 5 train to the Bowling Green station, or the N or R train to the Whitehall Street station.
- By bus, take the M15 (East Side) marked "South Ferry" or the M6 (West Side) from 57th Street.
CURIOSITA': "Cerca i tuoi antenati"

The American Family Immigration History Center®
This is an exciting interactive area at the Ellis Island Immigration Museum. You can access the passenger records of the ships that landed some 22 million immigrants, crewmembers, and other passengers at the Port of New York and Ellis Island from 1892 to 1924. More than 100 million Americans may find records of their family's beginnings in the new world here. To prepare for your search, gather as much information as you can, such as: the passenger's first and last names; approximate year of arrival; "ethnicity" (which may include race, nationality, and religion); approximate age on arrival; ship of travel; port of departure; and whether the passenger traveled with other family members. Experienced volunteers can provide guidance so visitors can view manifests and ship images from their ancestor's journey
