...across the water to Manhattan. I bet this would be a lovely spot in the Summer. Nice areas to sit and enjoy the view. If you're into chess, take some pieces and have a game on the boards there.

Great night view. You can look the remarkable New York skyline across the East River. This is also a nice place for jogging. The you are expected to spend lots of time for finding a parking spot if you drive there.

There is a nice breeze from the East River. The views across the river are fantastic. the park is more for residents than tourists as there is a dog park and children's playground. It has interesting full lounge chairs. Lots of cement. I hope the trees grow soon.

Great place for a romantic stroll with your other half ! Lots of places to sit and view the beautiful NYC skyline . You will also find a dog park , as well as a children's park which is clean and very well maintained. On the weekends there are sometimes live music performers !
