We will explore downtown NYC together! We’ll start off the evening by heading to NYC’s famous Highline Park after dinner and taking a walk through the park built on converted railroad tracks that offers a view across the water to NJ. After our walk through the Highline we can spend some more time exploring NYC’s downtown neighborhoods and head to a bar.
