Food Scene
I celebrated my birthday dinner here. It's a bit far from my house but the neighborhood is worth it! You get a beautiful view of NJ and of the Hudson river, while sipping on a delicious mimosa! It's a bit pricy so I recommend going here for a special occasion.

THIS PIZZA WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE. Try their signature slice "Artichoke slice" or their "Margherita slice"!! This is truly a New York slice. They are open until 4 AM! 4.50/slice but TRUST ME-it's like no other pizza.

One of the best places to go in NYC. The scenery is spectacular. Go at or close to sunset so you can see the view of Manhattan from the river side. Don't take away from the experience of a real slice of New York pizza and add toppings!(and each additional topping is $2-$3, so it can get pretty pricey if you want a ton of toppings). Personally, I'd recommend getting either a cheese pizza or a pepperoni pizza. Grimaldi's serves up a classic New York slice of pizza: a thin crust topped with high quality mozzarella cheese and high quality tomato sauce

If its summer and if you don't have a car but you have nothing to do, put this in your GPS and walk here from my house! Orrr-take the bus! Super long walk but so worth it. Middle Village is a super quiet neighborhood, the ambience is completely relaxing. Personally, there are a lot of parks near my house, but I only go to this one. It's NEVER crowded, super clean, has basketball courts, a big playground for kids, handball courts, dog park and a huge field. You run around the perimeter! It's also a perfect place to watch astrological events, as the field is huge giving a clear view of the sky.

This is where I take my mom and dad to the shore. the water is extremely relaxing. waves are chill not to harsh. not that many people. you can bring your bikes and bike around the entire park, though it may take some time its huge. you can also have a bbq or go paddle boarding. highly recommend this place--but you'll need a car. i think only cars can enter the state park. cost $20 to get in.
