Judging from the amount of Instagram and blog posts I have from this single day, it is safe to say I've found a favorite New York destination. Just an hour north of Manhattan, Storm King Art Center provides the perfect opportunity to unwind and immerse yourself in both nature and man-made art. The space allows for sculptures and works of massive scale, with my favorite being Maya Lins' Wave Fields (shown above). I can only imagine how beautiful the area must have been at the peak of autumn.
I have spent a great deal of time this semester exploring local areas, now realizing that New York has more to offer than the iconic city. As I have said before, travel doesn't have to mean plane rides to distant destinations. Regardless of where you are, there is something to discover. What is your favorite local destination?
