I take all my guests from overseas or out of state to see the best view of the NYC skyline here. As it has been said, 'Is it nicer to see NYC from NJ or within NYC? From NJ at Hamilton Park!!'

We went to Hamilton Park by a bus-tour at night. The night view of west side of Manhattan from Hamilton Park was gorgeous and impressive. I'm sure anybody can have a good experience and unforgettable memory.

THE place to go for beautiful photos of NYC. Must go during the day to see a live city but at night, it is even more spectacular. This is near the spot of the Hamilton/Burr dual.

If the nyc fireworks are from the west side of Manhattan this year, then yes. But parking is limited and restricted. Signs were up last night saying no parking on July 4 without resident sticker on car.
