The Paley Center for Media

New York

Paley Park and its cascading waterfall, which drowns out Midtown's hustle and noise, is a beloved secret gem in Manhattan. Hidden away on East 53rd St & 6th Ave, this tranquil pocket park features ivy walls, granite pavers, and marble tables nestled beneath a canopy of honey locust trees. Enter through an ornamental gate at 3 East 53rd and snag a table for a quiet escape.
