  • This is the best spot on the west side of the city to take pictures. Especially at night. You can also just take a walk around and enjoy the beacutiful city light. Love it.

  • For as long as I can remember, this has been THE spot to come to irrespective of season to take NYC skyline photos. The skyline may have changed over the years but the vantage from this park has not. Ideal for photographers and maybe an after-dinner walk with great views of the city. Street parking can be tricky but spots tend to open up quickly.
  • This park gives the best view of Manhattan skyline. Just visit this place around 8 or 9 in the night and you will find yourself in the midst of a very romantic place.
  • One of the best parks to see the NYC view from Blvd East. Also has nice basketball courts, kids' playground, and bars workout area.
  • Took my son to see the sunrise over the NYC skyline. The historical monuments are worth checking out and very informative.
  • Very good choice to stand up in front of the amazing view of Manhattan. Love it!
