1. Paley Park

Yes, there's Central Park, Bryant Park, Madison Square Park, and Washington Square Park, but there's also Paley Park. Located on 53rd Street between Madison Avenue and Fifth Avenue, it's a little piece of quiet in the middle of a bustling city.

It's there that you'll find food, movable tables and chairs, and the piece de resistance, a beautiful waterfall.

It was completed in 1967, and today is still one of the most beautiful little sections of NYC.

2. Morbid Anatomy Museum

Chances are you've heard of the Mütter Museum of The College of Physicians of Philadelphia, but did you know that NYC has a Morbid Anatomy Museum?

Located on Third Avenue in Brooklyn, this museum features a variety of interesting finds, such as artwork, artifacts, and books, that relate to the history of medicine, medical museums, and more.

Not only do they offer an exhibition space, but a library as well, so there's plenty to look through and discover. They're open Wednesday through Monday from 12pm and 6pm.

3. The Meditation Room at the United Nations Headquarters

You may have walked past the United Nations Headquarters a hundred times, may have even been inside, and not known that there's something called “A Room of Quiet.” It's exactly what it sounds like. A room of quiet, a tiny meditation room, right in the middle of NYC.

4. Trinity Church

Located down on Wall Street, Trinity Church was completed in 1846 and has become a major part of the history of New York. Most recently, it was known for being located across from the site of the September 11, 2001 attacks, and it's where many took refuge to escape the falling debris. Additionally, behind Trinity Church, is a beautiful historic graveyard where many famous people, such as William Bradford and  Alexander Hamilton, are buried.

5. Stone Street Dining

Eating outside is one of the favorite ways New Yorkers like to spend their time, but it's often that you either have to eat at a table that's located on restaurant grounds, you have to grab a park bench, sit on a picnic blanket on the grass, or you have to quickly eat while you're walking around trying to get from one place to another. However, when you head down to Stone Street, there's a little area that's decked out with tables and chairs outside of a multitude of restaurants, so you can sit down, relax, and enjoy a good meal in an open space. It's a wonderful way to enjoy a beautiful day.
