Food Scene
This is hands down our favorite restaurant in The Heights (and one of our top restaurants of all time to be honest). If you enjoy simple, well executed food made with quality, and locally sourced ingredients, Corto is for you! Their menu is small and changes often, but everything is to die for. Its also extremely affordable. Don't miss the homemade pasta. p.s. Its BYOB (Bring-Your-Own-Beverage), so you can bring your favorite wine and/or beer along with you.

Located just around the corner (and a personal favorite) is The Hutton, a cozy bar/restaurant with a warm atmosphere for cold nights and a large back patio ideal for warmer days. They have the best brunch around and offer unique twists on classic favorite dishes all day long. You also can't go wrong with a drink at their bar!

The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum is an American military and maritime history museum with a collection of museum ships in New York City, including the former aircraft carrier USS Intrepid that fought in World War II, surviving five kamikaze attacks and one torpedo strike. The ship later served in the Cold War and the Vietnam War. Intrepid also served as a NASA recovery vessel in the 1960s. It was decommissioned in 1974, and today is berthed on the Hudson River as the centerpiece of the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum.

The extraordinary centerpiece of Hudson Yards is its spiral staircase, a soaring new landmark meant to be climbed. This interactive design piece was imagined by Thomas Heatherwick and Heatherwick Studio as a focal point where people can enjoy new perspectives of the city and one another from different heights, angles and vantage points. Comprised of 154 intricately interconnecting flights of stairs -- almost 2,500 individual steps and 80 landings -- with nearly one mile of vertical climb above the Public Square and Gardens, this landmark will offer remarkable views.
