Family outing

Came here with family over the Thanksgiving holiday and everyone enjoyed it. It was cold but the walk wasn't at all difficult for anyone in the group (elderly and young).

Gets crowded, but do it

All the parks near the seaport are very similar. You can't go wrong with sunset over here on the water.

Great workout spot

Bring along a yoga mat and knock out a good workout, you won't be disappointed. The park area is wide open and has plenty of room to do your exercise.

Do the Brooklyn Bridge

I'd do the Brooklyn Bridge instead of this one. Go early to avoid the tourists on either bridge.

HUGE park!

You can get lost wandering around here. The park is massive and tons of open fields for dogs. Very pretty park!

Swamped with tourist

Great shot, with the Empire State building in the backgrounders, but its always swamped with tourists/photo shoots. If you can get there and have less people, go, but otherwise... skip it.

Early AM walk

If you go to walk the bridge/take photos, go in the early morning. The light is nice, but you'll get folks who are working out/exercising and not the tourists who are there for photos.

Love the seaport

Makes you feel like you've stepped outside of the city because its the old cobblestone roads/sidewalks... but in the backdrop is the financial district. Check it out.

Bike it!

I biked this and there were great views. During the summer, there's a nice breeze coming off the water. End your ride at City Vineyard for snacks and a glass of wine.

Golden hour

Incredible architecture and great photo spot, awesome at golden hour. Afterwards, head to Hudson Yards for restaurants and shops.

Skip it

I think you can save time and money by visiting another rooftop in Manhattan. That being said, its a pretty classic experience.

Slice of nature

What they've done with the Highline is incredible. Read up on how they've transformed it!

Bird watching

I'm pretty sure this is a migratory zone, but either way you get a lot of opportunities to see birds. You can usually find plenty of birdwatchers here.

Great lake

The lake is wonderful for fishing. Plenty of folks that fish the shores and take out small boats to cast out on. Special trout regulations you'll need to be aware of.

No hiking needed

Visited here because I was looking to avoid a hike for some waterfall photos. Was able to keep most of the gear in my car (just a few steps away), which was a good change of pace.

Bit steeper than expected

Tried to make this a run, but it was a bit too steep for me and I turned it into a hike. It was still nice! Lots of views and would love to come back with a camera around sunset.

Better as a run

Did this as a run and I'm glad I decided to do that. I don't think it would have been as enjoyable as a hike (not too many views).

Dog walk!

Bring your pup! It was very dog-friendly and all the other dogs that we encountered on the walk were well-behaved an on-leash. Plenty of smells for the little guy!

Shallow, only a couple of pools

Found plenty of trout here, but unfortunately didn't have any luck. Just one of those days but I'd be willing to come back and give it another shot.

Lots of rentals nearby

This is one of the best rivers in the region if you're looking for a float/paddle trip. The nearby outfitters offer affordable options as well, especially for overnight trips.

Its a really fun cave to explore, but be careful, come prepared, and let folks know where you're going!

Dog Walk

Came here with the dog for a stroll in this park. I enjoyed it, relaxing, not very crowded on a weekend evening.
