Isn’t it essential for traveling to discover less known parts of some very well known places, like such big metropolis, let’s say for example… New York City.

Since Manhattan is the most known of NYC, you might be surprised that it takes only 1 hours to arrive  to the best surfing place in this area, Rockaway beach! ( I took a train line 5 to Brooklyn, and then a bus to get into Jacob Riis Park, but there are few other ways…)
