We visited here to see the Weehawken dueling grounds and were pretty disappointed there was little here recognizing the victor of the Burr Hamilton duel. The park is really nice with great views and the historical marker is well worth the visit too.

This park has, by far, the most epic view of Manhattan that I've ever seen! If you live in NY or NJ and you have friends or relatives coming to visit, you MUST take them here. Come just before sunset, lay a blanket on the grass and enjoy the view. If you come during the summer on a Sunday evening, you'll be welcomed with some live, beautiful music.

It's open from 10am until 12am. There are guards that monitor the park and make sure no funny business takes place. But if you come in the winter, be prepared to see some steamy cars, rockin' and a-boppin'. The view gets lovers hot and bothered. The guards can't do much about it because they're not doing the dirty in the park.

This is THE hotspot for getting wedding photos and quinceañera photos taken. I highly recommend it for any type of professional photo opportunity.

The park has an excellent view of the west part of the New York City skyline. Some people prefer to go down to Hoboken but this is a better location in my opinion because is less crowded and has ideal viewing points.

Night photography here is great.

Hamilton park is a place with spectacular view in the daylight and in the evening. Beautiful park overlooks Hudson river and Manhattan sky scrapper beyond it.

It is a neat little place for your next outing.

How to travel from New York.

1. Take a taxi - should cost around $70 from NYC
2. Take a bus from Port authority to Hamilton park (bus leaves from 212 gate - Bus number 128, 165, 166, 168)
3. Take a New York ferry - round trip cost around $16

located right off Boulevard East, great views, especially magical at night. Benches available or bring a blanket and sit on the grass. Can be a popular location for wedding parties taking pictures.
