  • Bottom line, it was a massive disappointment. My teen found this place on the internet as someplace to visit as part of my requirement she get out of the house for some air and adventure. She thought ...  more »
  • I love this park that's quiet, peaceful, and yet full of events..and things to take in! Enjoy a water view walk, or sit and enjoy the the artwork and the ambiance.  more »
  • Exhibits vary at any given time, atmosphere and quality changes. (May change during the period. ) I would suggest you go check the website so have a lot of events in outdoor cinema (on Wednesday), free yoga, farmer's market, such as free in the summer. Next to Costco, its across the street from Isamu Noguchi Museum.

  • I had a night there upon my bicycle tour late fall 2009. Riding down highway 100, hwy 7 heading for New York City. Now I arrived at New York, living for a week at my friend Karen's home at Astoria. She has been showing me beauties from her home town. I appreciate, she showed me this clean park with a lot of introductions tables. A wonderful green playground for kids. A stroll way for adults in a big city.
  • It is on the queens side of East River. The ambience is nice to sit and enjoy the Manhattan skyline, read a book or to have a picnic. It is conveniently located next to Costco! We happened to come here when there summer concert by the Metropolitan Opera! We had a relaxed evening!
  • I went here for the first time last week. I like the fact that each year they have a new exhibit. The park is rather small in size, but has a lot to offer. The view over the river is not your typical "New York" sites, which is great as far as I'm concerned. Aside from the sculptures the plants and flowers offer a lot to be enjoyed.
  • We really enjoyed the park. Very fun art display and they had DYI paper. Come during summer weekends! They had two vendors there that day selling plenty types of food.
  • This park is really adorable! It has a community feel and the sculptures are really fascinating. Perfect for a picnic!
