Where to find New York City’s secret waterfalls

By Alexandra Alexa, Mon, March 22, 2021

New York state is home to many spectacular waterfalls that are worthy of any bucket list, but if you know where to look, there are a surprising number of waterfalls to discover right here in the concrete jungle of New York City. They’re not all “secrets,” but they do tend to exist well off the beaten path, tucked into the more remote parts of Central Park or in small Midtown plazas. Once you’ve found one, you’ll likely have a new favorite spot perfect for escaping the city’s unrelenting noise—if only for a short while.

13 Brooklyn condos with the best waterfront views

Ahead, we round up 13 condominiums with the best views on the waterfront in Brooklyn.

Sales began this week at 5 River Park, the first new tower to rise in the River Park project, the seven-building masterplan redevelopment of the former Long Island College Hospital Site. The new building, whose address is 347 Henry Street, is the first to hit the market in phase two of a masterplan comprised of the project’s first three new towers, which in turn are part of Fortis Property Group‘s $240 million plan to transform the Cobble Hill facility into market-rate condos and a clinic.
