NYC ‘s East River Park – New York City

East River Park


East River Promenade, New York, NY 10019, USA

Now, one might say that it’s wonderful to be on a waterfront piece of property. Right? ‘Depends on how you look at it. With the industrial section of Brooklyn just across the East River, and the Williamsburg Bridge (not the prettiest sight) near the center of the park, one might think “why would I ever want to go there?” Well, ‘spent a number of Spring/Summer days there and can always remember the best breeze you might ever imagine. With all its benches, basketball courts and the one or two miniature baseball fields you’re bound to feel something for this park. At the southern entrance are some pretty good yet distant views of the Manhattan Bridge with the Brooklyn Bridge just behind it.

If you’re in a good mood for a hike and long stroll then starting off at just below the South Street Seaport may very well be a good idea. Heck, you’ve got along the way the historical ships of the Seaport Museum along with all the shops there. Plus there’s also the Police Museum and boy oh boy! Did we mention those two lower Manhattan Bridges which’ll stun you with their up close views. If you do decide to take on such a hike then definitely bring along your cameras since on the right day at the right time of year the photographs you’ll get will be quite spectacular!

East River Park is located at Montgomery St – 12 St off the FDR Drive and the East River in the lower east side of Manhattan.
