Performance art, when well conceived and executed, can engage its audience unlike any other medium. As a result reviews of performance art tend to employ a range of adjectives as varied as: "captivating", "challenging", "voyeuristic", "enlightening", "erotic", or "harrowing". However it is that one feels about a given piece, the point is always that you do actually feel something. Whatever else can be said of it, performance art does not lend itself to ambivalence.
DISUSED railway lines were a source of untold wonder when I was a kid.
New York is packed with fun things to do, and you can't go wrong with the classic attractions: rowing boats in Central Park, kissing at the top of the Empire State Building, eating oysters at Grand Central.

IF the best thing about visiting a city is the moment you leave it then it sounds like the trip’s been a failure.
One of the great things about visiting a new city is wandering around, getting lost and discovering things for yourself. For example, you head to Soho , Nolita , the West Village , Williamsburg , you'll find tons of boutiques that you'll love. That said, here are 10 amazing stores not to miss... 1.

I've lived in New York City for ten years, and I've had a baby for more than a year, but the other day I stumbled upon an amazing hidden playground that I had NO IDEA existed. When you walk into Battery Park City, you see rows of tall apartment buildings. But if you walk behind the building 22 River Terrace , there's a cluster of big trees. They don't look like much, but if you head into them... ...you'll reach a clearing with a sandbox, splashy fountains, and giant slide! It feels like you're in the middle of a forest, and the 14-foot-tall slide feels surprisingly steep.
