Spa getaways in New York wouldn't be complete without some time spent in the city that never sleeps. There are many spaces for relaxation in this hive of a city. One such is Brooklyn Bridge Park, with its picturesque restored 1920s merry-go-round and spectacular views of the river and Manhattan. Shoot some hoops at the basketball courts or skate on the rink in the winter time. Don't miss out on your chance to stroll along The High Line, an elevated garden in the west of the city complete with sculptures and views over the Hudson River. Dip your toes in pools in the heat of summer and relax with an ice cream in a lounge chair. New York Botanical Garden is arguably one of the most relaxing spots in the Bronx. The scent of exotic flowers pervades the area around the blissful Bronx River waterfall.
