At first I felt kind of like it was't a very safe area, then I waited a few minutes and started to see people running, walking their dogs, and laying around. It is a photographers paradise (wildlife photographer). A must place to visit, a hidden forest in Manhattan.

I have years visiting this park and many memories that accompany those visits. But I always remember coming here on school trips and past the swing sets, the slides and the baseball fields there are quiet paths. Through these paths my elementary school teachers would always point out the caves(that are still there today) where the Native Americans use to... More

Not very many people go up to this idyllic spot - on the Northern Tip of Manhattan Island. The hiking trails give you a chance to completely escape from the Urban Blur and the elevated views of Spuyten Duyvel and the Hudson are not to be believed. Great in all Seasons!

There are many baseball diamonds and lots of amateur games of all ages... More
