  • We could have stayed there for ages just looking at the view. Awesome place to visit. Manhattan skyline looks so close you could touch it!! 
  • Amazing view after 5pm summer time!!!!! I love this place to see the sunsets in the opposite side reflected in the shinning buildings of New York.
  • Even when the park is closed in the evening this is the place to go to get the best views of NYC skyline. Photographs do not do this view justice, absolutely amazing views.
  • Another exciting place of New Jersey! If you want to enjoy the whole NYC at a glace from one frame, this place would be the BEST place! At night You can Get Best Look because of light! Great environment,You may not find the park if you drive there because it is all fully pack. Otherwise it is A Great place!
  • Awesome Park with great view. My go to place to bring out of states visitors. 2 thumbs up
  • Crowded during the summer time. Great place to take an infant to walk, run around. The perfect place to sit down on a park bench and watch the sun set. Expect to see a lot of couples take wedding photos at this location.
