My only view of Randall's Island thus far is with regard to the rather expansive field area utilized for outdoor concerts. I generally love outdoor concerts, and I've seen a handful of festival shows at this venue. While I greatly enjoyed the music & atmosphere each time, I thought the facilities, especially the bathroom facilities, were terrible. Granted, I haven't... More

We took our bikes and rode up the East river bike path and then went over the footbridge to Randall-Wards Island. It was so quiet you would never believe you were between Manhattan and Queens. We were able to ride without interruption and enjoy the spectacular views of the East River and Manhattan. Admittedly, the time we went was in... More

Wards Island & Randalls Island are 2 islands, joined by landfill in the 1930's, in the sound east of Manhattan. The East River is to the south-west, the Harlem River to the north, & the Long Island Sound to the east; all are sounds, not bona fide rivers. Across the water, Manhattan's East Harlem neighborhood is to the west, the... More

We biked over from Harlem and down through the park. It was a nice ride. Surreal in the sense that we did not see another living soul from the RFK bridge until we were almost out of the park. 15 minutes of biking in NYC on a Wednesday and 1 pm and not a living person in sight. We were... More

Great park. Lots of space and pretty easy to get to. Triborough bridge by car and theres even a walkway from 103rd street in Manhattan that contains an FDR Drive overpass and bridge to get to Randalls Island. A lot of things to do. Scenic views of uptown and some bridges including the RFK bridge. Great for a picnic, bike... More

Nice softball park that was easily reachable from Paramus NJ. Though once you are there you are kind of stuck unless you want to pay hefty tolls to re-enter.

I recently attended a Dave Matthews concert at Randall's Island in NYC. The venue itself was nice. It was a large, clean, open space. We were staying in Midtown, so we took the 6 train to 125th Street (you can take the 4,5, or 6 FYI). Once we got off, there were buses right outside waiting to take you to... More

I was at peace near the water at Randall's Island. It was lovely just sitting there watching the birds, people & I noticed the formation of rocks they had. They obviously put a lot of effort into the design of the park. Its still renovating but its still beautiful.

I have been to Randall's Island several times to see concerts and it is always an experience. I always enjoyed going to Warped Tour until they moved it to Nassau Colliseum. Most recently I attended the Dave Mathews Concert. It's just awesome to say you were there, but it is almost impossible to get close to the stage. There are... More
