Relaxing Hidden Gem
Whilst on the return walk from the United Nations, walking up E 49th I remembered reading about a little hidden hideaway that takes you from the hustle and bustle and puts you into a calm, green hideaway. Of course I needed to rely on google to sort out what I was thinking about but after a quick thumb tap, I found it.
And here it is, Amster Yard. Located between 2nd and 3rd on E 49th this New York City designated landmark was constructed in between 1869 - 1870 and refurbished in 1945.
Stepping inside through the gated entrance, the space immediately draws you in and reveals a quite treed sitting area where you can just be calm and relax. Why not grab some lunch and give your feet a rest while you recharge your batteries to keep going.
Even if you just stick your head inside while wondering the streets of this part of Manhattan, I would say it is one of those little hidden gems not to be missed.
