  • A must! Just a great little park. Good place to relax over local coffee, baked goods, ice cream etc...meet others. Remember why this is an historic park... Hope life changes to give all true equal rights.. and stop the greed and hate.
  • Christopher Park is located in Greenwich Village, and the park is maintained by the Parks Department of the City of New York. The park sits across the street from the Stonewall Inn, and it is probably as old as the Stonewall Inn itself. It is a very nice little park that is in the shape of a triangle, and there are plenty of park benches for folks to sit and read or have their lunches..
