    I love the beauty and expansiveness of this park. It saddens me to see garbage on the ground, so I try to pick up a few pieces here and there each time I visit. I'd love to see others do the same!

    56 acres along East River were acquired to create William Jay Gaynor Park (after the city's mayor from 1909 to 1913). However it was quickly renamed Astoria Park in December 1913.

    Bring beers, but keep it in Solo cups. Don't be an obvious asshole and you'll never get a summons. Find the tall guy with the 1980's boombox (me) and have a drink. Enjoy the summer. Peace!

    The east river is not a river, but a tidal straight, which explains why the river flow shifts throughout the day
