97 Museum of the Moving Image
Remember that favorite TV show from your childhood? Perhaps it was the show you used to watch when you had free evenings in which to watch shows. Well you can probably find an episode at the Museum of the Moving Image.
98 (72) Riverbank State Park
Riverbank State Park is a park is possessed with a multitude of things to do. Upper West Side joggers, rollerbladers and dog owners love this 28 acre landscaped park that nestles besides the Hudson River. Take your camera for a walk along the pedestrian esplanade rises high above the Hudson River. Apart from the river you can see New Jersey Palisades and lower Manhattan.
After feeding your eyeballs settle down your stomach on one of the grassy picnic areas or perhaps go for a swim first in one of the indoor and outdoor Olympic-sized swimming pools. You could even have a game tennis or basketball or alternatively head for the softball field or outdoor ice-skating rink.
If you aren't feeling that energetic you can exercise your brain by examining the 9 ton granite tomb of General Grant, the Civil War Soldiers' and Sailors' Monument and a statue of Eleanor Roosevelt.
If all that isn't enough there is a 400 seat amphitheater to admire, a cultural theater to visit and restaurant if you forgot to bring any food. The kids aren't forgotten either with a playground area facing the river.
Strangely enough (not) the park is very popular so you might want to arrive early.
99 Carl Schurz Park
Nice views of the East River. It is a pleasant green space and popular with New Yorkers. The mayor of New York lives in the park...albeit in Gracie Mansion. Take a walk along the promenade by the water and in the gardens, which are simply gorgeous in the warmer months.
Carl Schurz Park offer many twisting lanes and lawns to enjoy. For the energetic there is a a basketball court and a playground for little people with energy to burn. The park also has a water sprinkler to cool them off in summer.
100 (77) Half-court at the NBA Store
You have got to have a shot at this. I don’t know why this isn’t more common. Sure there’s a space issue, sure it probably doesn’t sell any more product but it should be a consumer’s right to try before you decide not to buy. What better way than to have a game. Sport stores around world rise to the NBA challenge.
