    This park is very Charming and overlooking the Hudson River. It is a park frequented more by locals for jogging, walking the dog or family. Worth a visit on a sunny day.

    This park was created with love in mind. Enjoy a stroll along Manhattan's Westside while taking in views of New Jersey. Best time to visit is during the early morning or while the sun is setting.

    Enter the park from 83rd st. and climb the rock to the right. This is where E.A. Poe used to sit & look at the Hudson. True, you can't see the river from that spot anymore (trees) but who cares? Poe!

    I like to go for dinner with two blankets and a packed meal–sandwiches; fresh bread, cheese, and fruit; or even a pizza pie. The views of the sun setting over the Hudson River are stunning. Read more · August 21, 2012
