Nowhere well you find better views of downtown Manhattan. Anywhere! Great little park, lots of space to relax and enjoy the views.

Stroll around with a friend who lives nearby. It was really nice. Beautiful views of Manhattan and the Statue of Liberty. Amazing place to watch the sunset. Cute places near to have a coffee. Nice parks, they even have an area for bbqs which was very cool. Fun and cheap plan!

The walk passes many interesting areas and has views of the river. There are exit stairs if you are drawn to an interesting spot or store. There was beautiful art all along the path. Very enjoyable and relaxing to stroll out of the traffic but still enjoy all the scenery.
