  • I was visiting in the late afternoon in may, was a somewhat sunny whether go spicy, but directly in front of the Manhattan view stretches as great place to prospect in too. Brooklyn is one great place especially for those travelling on a bicycle after the recommendation. A lot of people and I'm a pretty big Park not as right. This night or sunset look more catchy, I guess.

  • See all of Manhattan from the Brooklyn shore. A very good spot. Then walk in Brooklyn or back to Manhattan across the Brooklyn Bridge on foot. A must-do.

  • Nice walk along the east river. Morning sun with no shade made it warm. Flat and well maintained. Views of Brooklyn, Williamsburg bridge.  more »

  • Biggest park south from midtown Central Park. When u cross highway there's nothing else between u and water except huge amount of trees and sport fields. U would probably need the hall day just to explore the hall park and to enjoy in all off what does offer. So delicious park.
  • This is a great park it has everything. Soccer,baseball,football all in one also has night stadium lights. Dirt field and turf so you have a choice. It also has track and field and tennis court. Basketball and volleyball as well. 3 restrooms one near the tennis court one in the old fireboat house and near the place for bbq area. Play ground for the kid's and picnic area. No more handball court under the bridge that's gone. You have outside theater with stage for music. You can ride bike and jog there. Its a pretty safe park, police patrol there as well as park enforcement which a station in corlears park near East River Park. I find it safer then central park at night my opinion. Been living here and going to the park since 1969 6 year's old.
  • East River Park offers great views over the water and Brooklyn watedfront. It also has some quality facilities like the tennis courts, ball filelds and track (under renovation in late 2017). Otherwise it's quite scruffy, although improved over the years. Entranceways are poor, but don't let them deter you. Park is now very safe, even at night
  • This place is spacious and has a great view. Would recommend to people who likes to be a big parks to escape the fast New York paced life.
  • It's a bit out of the way and sometimes dicey characters in the area, but the BBW area facilities have been developed and have everything you need. It's also close to a beautiful running area along the water and a children's park.

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.
