Around The Corner

In 2010, Virginia Kraljevic started a series on our blog called "Around The Corner". Hoping that they may inspire an outing, here is a listing of the destinations Virginia and other writers of the blog have suggested:

Morningside Heights

General Grant National Memorial
If you happen to be in this neighborhood, visit Grant's Tomb, Columbia's Campus, Tom's Restaurant and the Cathedral of St. John.

The Cloisters

The Cloisters Courtyard
The closest thing to a castle in New York City.

The Battle of Brooklyn

The Old Stone House, Brooklyn
Visit this 1699 Dutch farmhouse and become inspired by the spirits of the Battle of Brooklyn, August 27, 1776.

The Museum of Natural History

An amazing place to bring out your inner Rousseau. Take your sketchbook and become inspired.

What are some of your favorite places in New York?

i love this! sometimes we forget to explore our own city. i love the delacorte theater in central park. even when it's not shakespeare in the park time, it's nice to sit on a bench and contemplate the theater's rich history.
