Staten Island Botanical Garden is a natural woodland with over 20
specimen gardens including the Secret Garden containing a child-sized
castle and a maze.
58 (118) Flatiron
The shape of
the Flatiron Building makes a favorite of New Yorkers and lovers
of interesting buildings across the globe. But there is more to
the Flatiron than its shape. This story has legs. The apex of the
building is just six feet wide and said to create an unusual wind
gusts. The effect was rumored to be quite uplifting down 23rd street.
Lovers of Legs gathered to view the effect. Police would call out
to them "23 Skidoo" to move them along. Whilst the phrase
is no longer in use we all know its cousin - "scram".
Piers has a health club, a day spa, a large gymnastics training
center, basketball courts, indoor lacrosse and soccer, batting cages,

studios and a marina. If you fell a little exhausted after reading
all that no fear – you can just take quite stroll by the water.
