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.
My Five Favorite Burgers in New York City: The Q Everything about New York is different. We're bigger, noisier, and denser than other American cities. But what really makes us special is our burger philosophy. We don't mess around. Where burgers are concerned, we play it straight. Sure, you can get every imaginable kind here—one of my favorite places, Big Nick’s on the Upper West Side, will make you a Madrid Burger or a Hawaiian Burger if you’re drunk enough to order one.
247 Fifth Ave 11215 Time Out says Posted: Mon Sep 24 2012 Good dive bars, attracting regulars from all walks of life, are as integral to the fabric of the city as rent control, bodega flowers and angry cabbies.

The 10 Best Wireless Speakers Wireless speakers have exploded in popularity, and nearly every major consumer electronics vendor has a cord-cutting model of some sort.

Greenmarket Farmers Markets Greenmarket was founded in 1976 with a two-fold mission: to promote regional agriculture by providing small family farms the opportunity to sell their locally grown products directly to consumers, and to ensure that all New Yorkers have access to the freshest, most nutritious locally grown food the region has to offer. What began over three decades ago with 12 farmers in a parking lot on 59th Street and 2nd Avenue in Manhattan has now grown to become the largest and most diverse outdoor urban farmers market network in the country, now with 54 markets, over 230 family farms and fishermen participating, and over 30,000 acres of farmland protected from development.
Best Gourmet Grilled Cheese Sandwich Recipes: Recipes You shoved it into your face as a little kid and used it to soak up cheap beer in college, but now it's time to elevate your grilled cheese sandwich to grown-man territory. "Think of it as a blank canvas," says Thomas Keller, who serves a buttery Gruyère-and-brioche version at Bouchon Bakery in New York City. In other words, experiment. Once you upgrade from Kraft Singles and Wonder Bread, you'll realize there's nothing Keller can do to a grilled cheese that you can't. Just remember a few tricks: Use a low, even source of heat—too hot and the bread will burn before your Gruyère gets a chance to melt—and let the finished product rest for a minute, like you would a fresh-off-the-grill porterhouse.
