Over the summer I took my yearly vacation to the East Coast. While in NYC the hurricane also decided to take a visit and I really didn't mind extending my trip a few days due to the airport being completely shutdown. The day the hurricane was supposed to hit we decided to take a walk through Battery Park. I quickly fell in love with the lush gardens and was so pleased that it was completely empty for us to frolic around in. The park was amazing and I would highly suggest going to explore it next time you are in the city of New York.
