  • If you have a great time. Korean travellers. This is where the unpopular Korean travellers. By the way, if you can afford to take a walk in the early hours of your time. It's a good idea to so so secluded. And historic place la grunge Sir bear feeling. A pleasant feeling of course. This is where a lot of people walking on the outing. Clean and Nice.

  • FDR Park isn't going to top most lists of recommendations for where to go in NYC, but it should definitely be visited at some point during a visit. The park is quiet and peaceful, located in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the city. The views of both Manhattan and Long Island City are excellent and the water flowing on both sides of you can help calm you. Definitely worth a visit!
  • There is geese poop literally everywhere. There is however a public restroom and a nice view. However, certain areas are blocked off that would make spectacular views. The smallpox hospital looks haunting at dusk.
  • Wow it is a great view of the river right in front of you. The park is nice. When there is a wind it is very nice.
  • Though the park is visually appealing, and offers great views, it's bizarrely restrictive. When we arrived, one of the other visitors was yelled at by some type of security guard that coffee isn't allowed in the park. No explanation was given. They weren't selling coffee so I can't imagine that was it. Almost everything was fenced off. The monument itself just looks like a giant floating head. Overall, it seems like a place that they don't want anyone to actually visit, as if it's supposed to just sit there in pristine condition, untouched.
  • Visually attractive but uninviting space. Lots of restrictions. Feels more like a monument than a park.
