    If you visit on a nice day, bring singles. This park is like a music venue with a dozen different options, from jazz to classical to folk to pop. Tip the musicians!

    When it's 50 degrees in March, everyone acts like it's 80 degrees in July. (Bro shorts and tanks everywhere)

    NYU but "in and of the city," of course. The place to be in the summer when some of the city's most interesting characters flock here and there's good music from all directions

    The only park in the City that I've seen people bring out their mini radio player and dance like it's the 60's. Cheaper than going to the clerb, I guess. No cover charge and cleaner bathrooms.

    If you looking for a perfect place for outdoor lunch it's the place you need. Always clean, but a be ready to meet a lot of students and same people as you who want to have lunch under the trees.
