Experience the East Side

DUMBO

Let's start by saying that D.U.M.B.O. has nothing to do with the young Disney elephant but is an acronym for Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass. Until a few decades ago, it was an abandoned neighborhood, a former manufacturing district, where a handful of artists had decided to establish their lofty studios, and 30 years ago Sergio Leone filmed one of the most beautiful scenes of the movie Once upon a time in America. Today, Dumbo is one of the most visited neighborhoods in the city.  As we tour around Dumbo, we will visit some of its most iconic attractions including the new-ish Time Out Market Terrace for incredible views of the waterfront.

Some of the views include –
  • Up-close views of the Brooklyn Bridge
  • The Manhattan Bridge
  • Jane's Carousel
  • Washington Street

LONG ISLAND CITY  & THE PESI-COLA SIGN

If Long Island City (LIC) once was above all the center of the NYC-based Entertainment Industry housing major movie and tv production companies, it has become one of New York's most vibrant and modern residential neighborhoods. The 19th-century industrial buildings of Long Island City waterfront have been transformed into a collection of ultra-chic residential skyscrapers offering a plethora of luxury amenities from rooftop pools to gyms and private libraries, clubs, and nurseries only accessible by  residents. Last but not least, from the beautiful waterfront of Long Island Cirty, you have some of the best views over the Manhattan Skyline and the famous Pepsi-Cola sign.

I’m the biggest fan of Fall activities, but haven’t had a chance to do anything beyond Apple Picking in NJ. I decided to take a last minute 2 day trip with a friend in Hudson Valley, but didn’t know where to start [...] Thankfully I was able to use New York Welcome to do the hard work for us [...]
