Here’s something we bet you didn’t know: Every person in Lower Manhattan is within a half-mile of designated open space. Bowling Green at Broadway and Whitehall is one of many quiet neighborhood respites. With a proclamation dating back to 1733, it’s the city’s oldest park, and before that, served as a council ground for Native American tribes. While Bowling Green always looks radiant, it has a special glow in the summer light.  [Photo by Brian DiFeo]
