Boardwak on the Liberty State Park has a very nice view. For those who want to see downtown Manhattan from outside and take a picture, I strongly recommend this spot. This is also a great spot to see a statue of liberty. But beware. She is only showing her back and you can't see her face. This place often get... More

This park has a great view of Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty. It is well planned and a good place for family time. You can also take a ferry to the Statue of Liberty from here - much closer than from NYC.

Nice park if you have extra time. We saw this while taking ferry for Statue of Liberty. Nothing exceptional, but well maintained

IN our attempt to see the Statue of Liberty we chose the New Jersey side and this location. The walkways are terrific, the view is perfect (albeit from the backside of the Statue) and it is easy to get to without all the hassle of the NY side. Great spot for families as well

We parked here (fee) and walked down to the ferry landing for our trip to Liberty Island and Ellis Island. After the long walk to the pier, we were disappointed to learn there was no refreshment stand to buy water/snack and the only bathrooms were 2 outdoor port-o-pots. Kids were too tired and hot to walk around, so we went... More

The park has the best view in the world. The Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island and the NY skyline are at your fingertips. The park is clean with walkways, walking paths and areas for family picnics. A great place to spend the day or just walk around.

Magnificent views of Manhattan. On the right day, unexpected and startling views of cloud formations up the Hudson.

Me and friends often come to this park during weekends, the park shows a good view of the New York down town and Ellis islands. It's a good place for weekend sports n fun.

Its like you are on vacation in a place with lovely hikes, views of the city and picnic grounds. The world trade memorial is beautiful too. The view of... More

Nice park. Many families picknicking, etc. Awesome views of Manhattan skyline and rear view of Statue of Liberty. Got some nice photos - if you care to see what you can get you can check my page - http://www.doziergraphic.com/urban-cityscapes/manhattan-new-york/ Now the negatives -- The cobblestone street to reach the Liberty Park point/departure area for the cruises is a terrible, rough,...
