I write this as the Prisoner of Azkaban is on television and I watch it for the millionth time. New York City has opened up the largest collection of Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts products in one spot. They have many different experiences such as the Butter Beer Bar and the Wand Shop. The store also has VR experiences that include Wizards Take Flight and Chaos at Hogwarts.

So now that you know about The Edge, they have recently opened City Climb at the Edge. It is said to be the highest open air ascent climb in the world. It is more than 1,200 feet up. This experience has you climb up and then lean out over a 45 degree angle as you live life on the edge. After your accomplishment you are given a medal and video of your climb.

This new public park pier has over 350 species of flowers, shrubs, and trees. Inside the park there is an amphitheater that can hold up to 687 people. It is a great place to relax and get some lunch on the water or try out one of their food establishments on the premises. Another great photo opp in the city on this manmade Little Island. I will have more on Little Island coming soon!
