  • A great way to escape the everyday drama of the Current Situation in Nyc. Some beautiful Flower beds, some of which are maintained by locals. Nice to view., but no picking allowed!

  • It's beautiful and very thin and long. Aside from central Park, this is a great place for bicycle riding. There are even a few places along the bike path where you can stop to eat at restaurants. The bike path runs alongside the Hudson River from battery park at the southern tip of Manhattan all the way to the George Washington bridge. You might consider stopping at a deli before heading into the park and ordering sandwiches to go, maybe a few beers. The New York deli is famous for making huge sandwiches with everything on it. If you want to pretend you are a native, just say.. "drag it through the garden". Oh, if you do drink beer in the park, you must paper bag it. That means the can inside a small paper bag so that the label is not visible. I know, sounds odd but it's an old law, protect the children or something, but a ticket will cost you $50! And please wear a helmet, especially if you've had a beer or two!
  • Celebrate MD 5/9/2021 there. The experience good. The food was good. They have out and indoor dining. Its wasn't crowded at all. The waiter was very knowledgeable about the drinks and food.
