5 places in New York that you haven’t seen yet

It’s hard to imagine how all those countless movies, bloggers and tourists could miss something in this iconic city! We know. Yet, there are still some unique places, that only locals know about.

We just decided to share some of our fav with you. I bet you haven’t heard about at least 3 out of these 5 places.

1. RUINS OF THE WORLD’S FAIR in Queens

The ruins of the New York State World’s Fair Pavilion from 1964-65 designed by modernist icon Philip Johnson. Being abandoned for years, however it became iconic. People, who come to the City from JFK airport all pass by this incredible building. I remember whenI first seen it. I was mesmerized and tariffed in the same time. Magnificent and empty.

2. The First Shearith Israel Graveyard


Why? Well, to start with the fact that, it’s a graveyard that is situated right in the middle of one of the busiest neighborhoods of Manhattan.

3. Salmagundi Club

Incredible Greenwich Village mansion that was turned into the private gathering place of artists at 1871. Making it one of the oldest art organizations in the United States. Skip the boring MOMA and head directly here!

4. BROOKLYN GRANGE ROOFTOP FARMS

Today’s farming experience looks like this. Now this is what I call “to farm in style”. Great place to show to your kids.

5. The New York Earth Room

c Created by Walter De Maria, the Earth room is pretty much what it says it is. It’s just kind of weird to see a 3,600-square-foot room covered in 22 inches of loamy topsoil in the heart of SoHo.
