Travel - 26 Gennaio My Year-long “Staycation”: Hiking the Trails Close to Home and Surfing in Rockaway Ask your typical New Yorker and it’s been forever (if ever!) since they’ve seen the sights of their own hometown. Even better, New York City is in the middle of a building boom right now, with exciting new places to visit like the Edge, the highest outdoor sky deck in the Western Hemisphere…. This enforced “staycation” is also a good opportunity to develop a skill that will eventually be useful when you start traveling again. If you were hoping to trek the Andes one day, this is a great time to prepare for that challenge by hiking locally.
