  • Travelling to the island (on an overhead tram) which houses this park is a great way to get away from it all. The man is inspiring and the island itself has a fascinating history. The views from the i...  more »

  • This park/ memorial is minimalist, peaceful and serene with some of the best views of the midtown skyline. It's easily accessible from the F line subway station or the the cable car from Manhattan. Best part is this place is still off the tourist radar, so enjoy the incredible views and beautiful design before it gets thronged by tourists!
  • 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!
  • Very good place to visit if you are in New York. You can also enjoy a small ride of ropeway. Good to be here either at sunrise or sunset.
  • The part is really good to spend the evening. The view at night is so good. Can see buildings of Manhattan.
  • Great views. Never really crowded. Be warned! No picnics, no bikes, pretty restrictive. And for a monument to FDR, not wheelchair accessible!

Where to stay in New York City

The first step to finding accommodations in New York City is finding the right neighborhood. Manhattan, where most visitors end up, offers some of the most expensive rooms in the world, though there are lower-budget options, such as hostels with shared restrooms. Reduce your costs by basing yourself in one of the outer boroughs, but beware of low-end motels where you may end up sharing the premises with hourly customers. Alternatively, stay along the New Jersey shore, offering all the major chain hotels at considerably lower prices than their Manhattan equivalents.
