Part of the playground down in Battery Park—it’s like a grid and when you jump on the blocks it makes xylophone sounds. The best part about it is that no one really notices it, because it’s level with the ground; but it’s really harmonious and makes beautiful music, and when you start playing on it people in the park take notice of it and come over and want to play on it.

The library. It’s a beautiful place. They take you on a really nice tour and they always have nice exhibits there.

The Greenway bicycle path. We like to go over the George Washington Bridge and go all the way down to the South (Street) Seaport.

Union Square. I just like the restaurants around there, the bars. I like that area around there, the coffee house.

DUMBO, I like the rustic and the new. There’s the new development and the old cobblestones. Then there’s the view of Lower Manhattan and the bridges.
