*The Kosciuszko Bridge – named for Thaddius Kosciuszko, the original undocumented immigrant, whose help was instrumental in winning the revolutionary war. This new bridge is a suitable monument to undocumented immigrants throughout the USA. The first new bridge in NYC in over 50 years and it’s gorgeous! The Brooklyn-Queens Expressway crosses Newtown Creek over the new Kosciusko bridge. The north/westbound span is in Queens, the south/eastbound span is in Brooklyn. Together they welcome the future and pay homage to the Brooklyn Bridge. DUKBO is the neighborhood beneath it.

The High Line Park – NOT TO BE MISSED
The high line was an elevated railroad that ran down the west side of manhattan bringing in raw materials for industry and carrying away completed goods for sale. It was shut down decades ago and was inaccessible for decades. A natural ecosystem developed there. A few years ago someone went out of a window that overlooked the Highline and went for a walk and came up with the idea that it would make a great park. It is. it’s a must see and is conveniently and easily combined with a stop in the Chelsea Market.
