    Nice green space, lots of boats to different places. Try the new aquarium carousel.. Go at night, the carousel colors really pop.

    Great place to watch the ocean from the tip of the island of Manhattan. There's an old Fort Worth while visiting and looking at the children playing with an water sculpture.

    I went there to get to Statue of Liberty. The park itself is nice though. You can see One World Trade Center from the park. The walk to 1WTC also feels nice~
