The East River Esplanade

One of the great things about living in New York is that if you're adventurous, you'll get to know all the little nooks, crannies and hidden gems that the masses here have no idea even exist. The East River Esplanade is one of those hidden gems. You have to cross the East Side highway and walk through a little "cave" to get to it. A cool, shady little place to get away from the crowds.... right in the Middle of Manhattan.
