City Green: The Elevated Acre, New York

In the Financial District of Lower Manhattan, there’s an unmarked escalator at 55 Water Street. Take it up, and you’ll find yourself in a one-acre park. This is the Elevated Acre, a huge, peaceful urban park containing an amphitheater, a lush lawn, and a beer garden. Grab a bench and enjoy stunning views of the Brooklyn Bridge and the East River. Perfect for sunsets.
