“Calming walk along the river with Statue of Liberty View”
Reviewed April 26, 2013 via mobile

I find walking along the river here very therapeutic and calming. Nice salt air smell. Public restroom is in one of the luxury condo buildings, so very convenient. Beautiful flowers, good restaurants. It is like a resort that you can visit.

“A great family recreation spot down by the water”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

I've been coming to Rockefeller Park almost since it was completed in the 1990s. At that time, I had just discovered the joy of inline skating, and it was a revelation that Rockefeller Park was part of the newly-constructed Hudson River waterway, on which you could skate/walk/bike from the Upper West Side all the way down to the Battery, and then around to the East side.

There is also a cruise, one that uses sail boats, that originates from just north of Rockefeller Park, that goes out into the lower part of the Hudson and over to the Statue of Liberty, which is very nice.

As the weather is warming up, and I am getting back my in-line skating chops, I look forward to getting down to Rockefeller Park on a regular basis, passing the local families who make it their home, crossing the wooden bridge and resting beneath the trees.

“Great View!”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

View of Jersey and the Hudson. I just love walking around the part watching the tourists, sitting and looking out across the water to Jersey. Can take evocative photos. Just handing out in general and breathing in the air.

“An example to follow”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

This kind of parks are a model to follow. There is a place for everybody. My children and I walked along the many options and thought that New York is a lucky place!
