    Best people watching park. Dog runs, plenty of benches, and a few weirdos. Ah, New York.

    Do NOT go here. Boyfriend & I thought it would be cool to check it out - nothing but heroin heads. He walked into the bathroom on a major drug deal w/ junkies shooting up & cash all over the toilets.

    Still has the old NY feel, it's a great spot to people watch or hang out in the nice weather with a book. Plenty of good food and bars around. Beautiful in the spring and home to a family of Hawks

    This park gets so much funding, yet it's always dirty and filled with drug addicts. Not safe to walk here at night. The dog park is the only positive here.

    Stop by on Sundays to browse the farmers market. Any other day just for some relaxing and to see the interesting characters that make their way through

    It could be a little bit crazy place. But it has some quiet spots.

    A nice way to escape the street grid even if briefly.

    Park full of interesting people. Can sometimes find a wide array of live music as well. Everyone seems to know everyone.

    The birthday cake cream cheese served here is something special, especially if you've got a sweet tooth, complete with rainbow sprinkles mix into the rich cream. Read more

    A great place to stroll after eating and before the in goes down. Stop at the dog park to the watch dogs play. Always a great way to see how compatible you are with your date.

    Don't wear sandals/slippers when you go to the bathroom. Also try not to catch a disease as well. D:

    Relaxing park, a few courts, a pool I don't think anyone uses, and benches galore. I've been warned it's not so nice the later in the evening you get, but surrounded by shops and hot spots.
