In September of 2014 I moved out of New York City. While in San Tan, Arizona I noticed how off-balance I was living in a desert. When opportunity and serendipity brought me back to New York, for a time I stayed with my grandparents near the Great Kills Marina in Staten Island. Being that close to water was both balancing and a great place to hang out. The waterfront public park areas in New York City are always filled with people enjoying life. I often find myself visiting bodies of water when I want to feel a sense of peace. They also great for some picturesque views! New York City has both natural and manmade bodies of water that are open to the public to visit. I definitely recommend checking out as many as you can.
