Popular park 30 feet above street level on an old rail line, with river & city views. Great place to get away from the city without really getting away. This man-made park sits on an old railroad track, and it’s truly amazing what they’ve done to it. It’s a nice walk with little attractions along the way. One of the most impressive and important structures ever cultivated in NYC.
