Wonderful place to bring your family in a quiet part of Queens. Safe, dog-friendly, family-friend, very clean. Lots to do here in the summertime!

Great spot along the water. Beautiful views. Nice benches and plenty of seating. I took some of my engagement photos there and took friends and family there when they came to visit.

You can't beat the view from Gantry State Park. I live in the neighborhood, and love jogging through the park. It's a relaxing spot that's great for people of all ages.

Shop or have a coffee or drink, and walk around the park. Beautiful tall trees will welcome you, little garden tables with chairs will comfort you, and you will love the friendly chatting, watching table tennis, or watching others skate on the ice rink (if you don't have your skates with you).

Gantry park has an amazing view of the beautiful skyline of Manhattan. It is where the Pepsi logo is located. There are lots of chairs to hang out while admiring all the iconic buildings of the city.

This is the ultimate place to go for a stroll after brunch. Fantastic views of the New York skyline from the other side of the river. You'll end up taking a lot of pictures with awesome views and signs like the Pepsi Cola and Long Island. No need to spend more than an hour to enjoy it.

Happened across here during a bke ride and was thrilled to see the iconic Pepsicola sign. This spot offers a gorgeous view across the East River to Manhattan. A beautiful spot at any time but especially special during sundown.

Most people don't know that Long Island City, or LIC as is called by the locals, exist, which is good, the view from here is incredible, clean from the 59 Street Bridge to the Brooklyn Bridge and all of the skyline in between. Not to mention the park with great playgrounds for the kids and a dog park. As well... More

Been there a couple of times. Great view of Manhattan. Great space to let kids run around on the grass and on a playground.

I used to live over in Jersey City and this area reminded me fondly of it. The view from here is incredible. You could also group Hunter's Point Lookout with this since they are a couple minute walk from one another and offer many of the same things. Lots of people around, great access to the waterfront and seating areas,... More
