We were driving to the Chart House and stopped on Boulevard East to view the New York Skyline. We saw all types of boats and there was a Large Cruise Ship loading to visit a much warmer climate probably for a week. There is also a site with a plaque indicating where Aron Burr had a Duel with Alexander Hamilton... More

This is an absolute must do in New York. Put it on your Top 10 list of things to do. The views are postcard worthy

If you have out of town company and want to "show off" the million dollar view, stop along Boulevard East and walk the path. Views are spectacular when the sun is setting!

It's an excellent running / jogging track with great view of New York Skyline and Hudson River. There are parks along side and benches where you can rest and enjoy the view.

great views of NYC, nicely maintained parks, nice to walk around and enjoy the views; take a break from the ice cream trucks that sometimes park nearby. Benches in some areas. Traffic moves pretty fast on the Boulevard, caution advised.

A few years ago while I was up visiting friends and family I shot a few pictures of the Super Moon over Manhattan. This is a breathtaking experience, where you can see the entire... More

This is the best spot to take pictures of the Manhattan skyline, you get to see midtown and downtown, its great during the day but at night it gets even better with all the building lights. This is a must if you have someone who's visiting and want to see the famous NYC Skyline.
