  • Not far from the area of the Memorial of the September 11, this small and charming park remembers, in a clean and cared for, how much Ireland there is in new York and the USA. Definitely worth a visit

  • Actually it's a monument, it is a reminder of an Irish famine 1845-1852 ruled and the 1.5 million people died. We can deal on the spot with the subject matter, but you can enjoy just the seemingly wild, untouched nature and the "ruins", both to create an Irish flair, the feeling to be in the Irish countryside and also succeed, if you the trappings "hides the houses". This small park is a real gem and compared to the - also very nice high line Park - still a real insider tip.

  • When my Aunt told me we would be going to check this out, I was expecting it to be bigger. It took us about 5 minutes to check it out but it was worth it. The area where it is located is nice. 
  • One of the best and most beautiful hidden parks in NYC. Just a step away from the WTC it's a little oasis of calm. Tastefully done and a genuinely respectful memorial to a tragic piece of Ireland's history.
  • It's a cute little memorial, and while it's certainly nothing worth coming downtown for, if you're walking along the water, it's worth taking a quick detour for. It's well done, and while I didn't quite get it at first, after going to the UK and Ireland two years ago, it does actually seem appropriate for the hilly country side with the stones.
  • Wow - what an overlooked piece of the city. If you go here and get just the right angle, you feel as though you are in Ireland (as long as there aren't any construction cranes in your line of site). Definitely check this place out if you are in the area.
  • A really awesome memorial to a commonly forgotten part of history. Amazing architecture and design, unfortunately it's not very well maintained.
  • This is a lovely little memorial park - very peaceful and calm.
