Gardens of NYC Delight
This season New York City beckons with the welcoming of summer foliage.
Relish a day strolling Central Park’s splendidly intertwining paths with the treasured Alice in Wonderland, being a quick hop from The Surrey’s door. Pay homage to the neighboring Hans Christian Anderson followed by a jaunt to The Boathouse to quench your thirst. Afternoon cocktails while gazing at the model boat sails in the Conservatory Water. Perhaps performers might be honing their craft, afoot at the Bethesda Fountain; minstrels and musicians, story tellers and stage performers.
Or plan an ideal afternoon venturing downtown. The Surrey’s concierge will gladly work with the esteemed Café Boulud team to ‘pack a picnic’ on your behalf. Pioneer down to the highly acclaimed Hills Parks at Governors Island, reopening to the public on May 28th. Be among the first to take in the most breathtaking views of The Statue of Liberty this splendid season. A picnic on the grounds, a bike ride without the interference of cars, a simple afternoon of exploration.
Amidst the vibrant activities of the weekend, take a moment to retreat from the city’s bustle. The spectacular New York City skyline could not be any lovelier than from The Surrey’s Private Roof Garden – high above city streets. A private outdoor space exclusively for patrons of The Surrey Hotel, with afternoon cocktails and light nibbles as lovely as Central Park’s views below. Your respite to just be.
