    A beautiful little park amongst the governmental and financial buildings, City Park is a great place to bring a packed lunch, and sit around the fountain, surrounded by old timey oil lit lanterns. Read more

    This is a great place to hang, whether u're having lunch, getting someone's phone number, chatting w/ powerful NYC politicians, chilling w/ the friendly squirrels, or getting beat by chess hustlers.

    The perfect place to rest before your walk over the bridge, where wooden benches surround a tree-lined fountain. Stop by City Hall, NYC's second, which was finished in 1811. - Green Guide Editor

    This is a great park to look for spare change. Sometimes the mayor drops spare change in the form of $100 bills.

    Seriously: do not feed the squirrels or pigeons. It's disgusting and not safe. Plus, what the squirrels and pigeons don't eat goes to nourish RATS.

    The gas burning lamps have been in the park since it first opened. Pretty neat.
