    A quiet sanctuary of a park. Mature trees and bushes absorb the noise of the city, while classic old buildings offer architectural eye candy. Plenty of benches to sit and enjoy.

    If you can't make it to either river, this is the nicest park in the neighborhood. Quiet compared to the hustle and bustle of Lower Manhattan.

    Bridewell Prison used to occupy the north end of the park, and was one of the deadliest British prisons in Revolutionary-era New York. Bones were found here during the 1990's renovation of City Hall.
