As a couple of travelers from Colombia and New York, we absolutely love exploring new cultures and experiencing the best that each city has to offer. We both have a passion for art, museums, and events related to fashion, and we are always on the lookout for new and exciting things to see and do. We particularly enjoy visiting some of the world-renowned art institutions in New York City, like the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), and the Guggenheim Museum. Each one offers a unique and fascinating collection of art from around the world, and we could spend hours exploring each one. As fashion enthusiasts, New York Fashion Week is always an event we look forward to. We love seeing the latest collections from some of the biggest names in fashion and being surrounded by other fashion enthusiasts from around the world. We also enjoy checking out other fashion events throughout the year, like sample sales and pop-up shops. Given our shared concern for the environment, we're also excited to attend Climate Week in New York. This annual event brings together leaders from around the world to discuss climate action and sustainability initiatives. It's a fantastic opportunity to learn about and engage with climate-related issues, and we're looking forward to attending. Overall, as a couple who appreciate art, culture, and the environment, New York City is the perfect destination for us. We love the energy of the city and all the incredible things there are to see and do, and we can't wait to explore more.

Tour description

We will begin our tour at Rockefeller Park, which is a peaceful green space in Battery Park City that offers stunning views of the Hudson River and the New Jersey skyline.
From here, we will take a leisurely walk along the Hudson River Greenway towards Pier 25, which should take us about 20-25 minutes.

Along the way, we can take in the sights and sounds of the city while practicing mindful walking and breathing exercises. We can also stop at various locations along the route, such as the Elevated Acre and the Battery Park City Esplanade, to practice yoga and meditation in beautiful outdoor settings.

Once we reach Pier 25, we can head up to a nearby rooftop with a view of the Hudson River for a guided meditation session that offers breathtaking views of the city skyline.

Overall, this walking tour would take about an hour to an hour and a half, depending on how long we spend at each location. It provides a unique and peaceful experience that combines the benefits of exercise, mindfulness, and beautiful city views.

I hope you enjoy "The Serenity Seeker" tour and find it to be a refreshing and revitalizing break from the hustle and bustle of the city!
