Are you ready for the weekend? Sure, you are!:)
And we decided to share the idea for your day off in New York.
You probably heard New York City’s new floating park, Little Island, officially opened to the public. We have been there, and it’s our top recommendation for sure! The futuristic-looking park, set upon massive pylons in the Hudson River will open at 6am for those eager to get in their morning strolls on the new verdant oasis. (If you want to go between noon at 8pm, high-traffic times, you’ll need to reserve a free entry on its website first). The new space is open until 1 am daily, so there will be plenty of time to check it out. Just Google “Little Island” and you get the detailed info on how to get there.
On the way to or from there, you grab a slice of PIZZA…. but not the regular kind, the Unregular Pizza at 135 Fourth Avenue!!
Check this out, you can Barter just about anything for some pizza at this new shop in Union Square.
“Extrapolating from an ancient tradition which springs from necessity, this pizzeria will be the first shop in NYC (and possibly the world) to offer one barter a day in exchange for any food or drink creation New Yorkers feel like bartering,” reads the official press release announcing the opening.
In addition to the daily trade, customers will get to actually buy some pizza the old-fashioned way. The highlight of the menu, which features both single slices and full Roman-style, square pies, is the destination’s specialty: the burrapizza, which boasts an entire burrata on one square slice of your choosing.. [MIND BLOWING ].
Every day at 4pm, the staff will set up one trade and notify customers of its happening through a bell. Try the bufalona (cherry tomato confit, bufala, basil pesto, and tomato sauce), the unmushroom (mixed mushrooms, mozzarella and cacio and pepe sauce), the delicatissima (cherry tomato confit, mozzarella, pancetta and red wine reduction sauce) and the unvegan (cherry tomato confit, asparagus tips, asparagus cream and tomato sauce), among others. All the pies are made with 72-hour leavened dough. You can (and should) also order a focaccia and the single dessert-menu item on offer: the pistacchio tiramisu.
