New York City has some fantastic riverfront parks that offer spectacular skyline views. Many of these parks are underrated and not known to many New Yorkers – Come join us as we’ll take a beautiful summer evening stroll by these parks.
As NYCGO.com states “Once a wrecked and abandoned industrial waterfront, Gantry Plaza State Park is now a manicured 12-acre park and promenade running alongside the East River, with breathtaking views of the east side of Manhattan, which can be comfortably enjoyed from riverside chairs and benches…” , whereas Hunter’s Point State park is relatively new park on the East River features amazing views of Midtown and a green oval for sports and lounging, picnic tables and Coffeed, a local coffee and snack bar. It’s easily accessible via the East River Ferry, which docks at LIC Landing for trips to Midtown, Williamsburg, Lower Manhattan and the Brooklyn Bridge.
