What used to be a land fill has morphed into a huge Park serving NYC. The Freshkills Park has a great deal to offer and will be larger than Central Park when it is complete

Feels like you are anywhere but New York City. Streams, hills, greenery, birds, 'country roads", and a knowledge docent make this a exciting , worthwhile experience.

This was the largest landfill in the world! It was open for a very long time. The methane that seeps through this ground is poison. Please don't visit this area! Certainly never move to this area and don't let your children walk through this park as if it's pure fresh air because it's not! I knew one day when this landfill finally closed the city would try to pass it off as a beautiful park or possibly beautiful homes but please be forewarned... stay away!

What a great resource that is forever held under the thumb of City bureaucracy. Trump could get this opened in 6 months. Great areas for Mountain biking, birding and hiking, 30,000 city agencies are arm wrestling over jurisdiction. Twice a year whey open up a sneak peak and then close it. Makes no sense to me. Close off the sensitive gas generation areas and open it up for private vendors to develop.
