  • This park is located on The First Station on the Queens side on Metro Line 7, and less than a 10-minute walk from Vernon Blvd - Jackson Av. I think it's a famous place where you can see the skyscrapers of Midtown in front of you, but there are few people who come unexpectedly. Because the wind blowing through the river is strong, it is difficult to fix the tripod etc. easily. There are quite a few locals who are taking a walk, so I don't feel any anxiety about security. There is a rule that it is used until 22:00 in the state park once though it is not regulated because there is no fence.

  • Hunter’s Point South Park offers some spectacular views of NYC and surroundings. One can take the NYC ferry from here as well. Certainly worth visiting.  more »

  • Fantastic place to take a walk and watch the sunset. Easily accessible using the 7 or the ferry. Amazing views of Manhattan including the Empire State Building. Highly recommend you explore the path by the water and the observation point above. Love watching the dog run on the weekends too. It’s also very family friendly with places to play soccer and volleyball.
  • Our two years old loves this park. It is always have food, ice cream, music, ferry ride. My son enjoys the little kid playground with a city view. We often took a short boat ride to 34th street and returned right away. It's a kid friendly area with plenty of entertainments for adults as well. Even at 10pm, there is a lot of fun going on. My little boy is a night owl, and he hang out with many other little night owls there.
