“If you're in the area...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2012 via mobile

Nice, quiet park next to the East river with a great view across to Queens, used mainly by locals for walking, jogging, exercising the dog.
Apparently the house near the entrance is where the mayor of NYC always lived, though I don't think recent mayors have used it as their home.
There's not much else in this residential area, but if you find yourself near, take a stroll and rest on a bench facing the river.

“A relaxing spot away from the crowds”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2009

While I was here in 2004 this was one of my favorite spots near where I was staying. I bought a cup of coffee and sat on a bench or walked the paved path along the East River every morning I was there. Unlike Central Park, there really nothing going on in Carl Schurze Park except people taking walks, walking the dog, or just hanging out. If you want to enjoy a little peace and quiet in the party city you should give this park a try.

“A great park alongside the east river!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2009

This is a great park that runs alongside the east river on the upper east side. If I were a tourist, I don't think that I would go up there, though. It's really nice, but not really much else to see up there.
