2. McGraw Hill Park – 48th Street and 6th Avenue

midtown waterfall tunnel-NYC-Untapped Cities1

This solid glass tunnel built into the waterfall at the McGraw-Hill park on 48th Street and 6th Avenue is quite the tourist attraction. Many like to take a photo inside the tunnel, which provides an unusual look at the water falling all around it. Though the park does not have much room for seating, its location just off Times Square makes it a welcome resting place from the traffic. The park’s interesting sculpture waterfall was added to the park sometime after the space was built in 1970.
