Beautiful views of Manhattan

A little piece of heaven in an industrial area. Very peaceful and serene. Loved the pepsi sign and the gantry history.

There are plenty of seats and sun chairs in this so peaceful place, along with 4 piers and my favorite 4 old restored gantries which is a reminder of the past history. A walk past these will bring you to the old pepsi cola... More

Gantry Park is a wonderful park that embraces the breathtaking views of Manhattan, while enhancing the beauty of Long Island City. The park runs along the east river and the landscape changes as you stroll through the park, the only constant is the river and the Manhattan skyline. There is the pier that juts out into the river, there are... More

This is a beautiful park with an incredible view of Manhattan. The Park runs the length of Long Island City next to the East River. The park is designed so beautifully with several grassy areas, benches to sit on, curved wooden lounge chairs, several piers to walk on, even cheese tables. The view of Manhattan from the park is spectacular.... More

This park is lovely and is great for all ages. There are walkways along the East River, playground areas for children, benches to rest on, and a small cafe to grab a quick bite. It's an intimate park that invites you to take a deep breath and relax while enjoying the incomparable view of Manhattan just across the way. Passenger... More

This park is not so well known, but it should not. It is an intimate park, due to small dimension but offer both a wide area where having a rest (both on benches and on grass) and especially a fabulous view of Manhattan skyline from Freedom Tower to Queensboro Bridge, passing through Empire State Building, UN Building and Chrysler Building....
