Visit Little Island Park, NYC

This past week I had the chance to make my first visit to the newly-opened Little Island Park, which is located on the Hudson River at Pier 55, between 13th and 14th Streets, and accessible via a concrete pier. The park is open from 6 AM to 1 AM and free tickets  can be booked at the link above.  Note that tickets are not required to enter the park between 6 AM and 12 Noon, so considering the demand is currently quite high, it might be a good idea to plan a trip to Little Island for the morning hours. See more photos from my visit on my Instagram (@worleygigdotcom), which you can follow by clicking the image above!
