Fort Tilden Positioned on Rockaway Peninsula, Fort Tilden—part of Gateway National Recreation Area—offers a mixture of decommissioned military structures and reclaimed natural areas, including some of the most beautiful beaches (un-lifeguarded) in New York that are perfect for walking or fishing. Tours and other ranger-led programs highlight many great spots to see wildlife in the maritime forest, along the Atlantic shore, and near the fort's freshwater pond. The observatory deck on top of Battery Harris East, a historic gun site, offers dramatic 360-degree panoramic views of Jamaica Bay and New York Harbor, and is a great vantage point from which to spot migrating birds. Listen to stories about hawking in Fort Tilden and other national park sites around Jamaica Bay from national park ranger and naturalist Dave Taft. Problems using the player? The former fort is now home to two local non-profit organizations which have transformed abandoned military buildings into a haven for the arts.

Paris, photo, déco, mode, tendances, humeurs et caetera 1 an pile, et j’étais à Hong Kong. Ma première fois en Asie. Cette ville est juste démente. Ce mélange d’extrême modernité et de traditions d’un autre temps. Une énergie comme à NYC. Mais en tellement plus grand, plus fou ! Il faut absolument que j’y retourne pour la simple et bonne raison que je n’ai pas profité comme j’aurais du : 1er trimestre de grossesse, les odeurs, la nourriture, tout ça, tout ça, tu vois.

For example, you head to Soho, Nolita, the West Village, Williamsburg, you'll find tons of great boutiques. That said, here are 10 amazing stores not to miss... 1.
