Fell in love with this place. Meant to just pop in for a look, ended up staying for over an hour and would have been happy to stay longer if I’d thought to take a book. Not to be missed!

This little park — slightly smaller than a tennis court — offers an oasis from the hustle and bustle of Midtown Manhattan. Off the beaten tourist path, the green space provides a pleasant refuge from crowded sidewalks and busy vehicular traffic. We came across it...More

Read my review of Ess-a-bagel and you’ll understand. After a hectic moment there we brought our breakfast to this park. And boy was it nice to find a hidden gem tucked into the busy manhattan streets. Benches and tables are plenty and the beautiful waterfall...More

I had a morning to myself in NY and after a quick look at Atlas Obscura found this hideaway in NY. Enjoyed the chance to read my book for an hour by the waterfall with a coffee from the small cafe located inside the park....More

Complete with a 25' rushing waterfall, this green oasis is the perfect spot for a break in the hustle-noise of a big city. A 'vest pocket' park, privately owned, graced with tables, chairs and benches on multi-levels (complete with a small concession stand), it offers...More

I've lived in Manhattan for 27 years and somehow only just discovered this beautiful pocket park yesterday. I will go back often in the months when it is open (April-December); such a peaceful, beautiful place amid the noise of the city.

There are disappointingly few places in Manhattan south of Central Park where you can get away from the crowds and noise but this little gem is one of them. Lots of free seating and a cafe (but no facilities) and the waterfall at least reduced...More
