    We stayed on this side of the Hudson River and in front of this Boardwalk. Cute and beautiful view of Manhattan. It's not worth coming if it isn't necessary for other reasons.

    It's a great park ....and part of the Palisade Cliffs. Wedding photos are taken at this park because of the incredible view of midtown Manhattan. Parking is tough because it is a heavyly traveled main Street, but if you want an incredible view of Manhattan day or night this is the place.
