“There's a poor side and a rich side of these 2 side by side docking/fishing areas. We visit both and sometimes eat at the restaurant, fly kites on one of the docks, stick our toes in the sand and occasionally have splashed in the river. In the summer there are sometimes 2 swans who come to visit. ”

“Easiest to take the train up to Dyckman Street in order to get here, but VERY worth the travel for the gorgeous river views and beautifully maintained gardens in the park. The Met Cloisters, located in the center of the park, is stunning as well. Wander the park till you find the west-facing terrace, and then enjoy the spectacular sunset.”
