    Its bike path, which leads directly to the Brooklyn Bridge, offers a different type of scenic view to cyclists pedaling through picturesque panoramas of some of the City's iconic public architecture.

    Look up the history of this park. It's been a meeting place since the 1600s and is one of the many remnants of our colonial history downtown!

    Hot dogs are a NYC tradition loved by everyone, both private and public sector. Grab a Snap Dog from the cart near NYC City Hall at 258 Broadway and enjoy it in the park - yum!

    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.
