Manor Park

Reviewed By mosaferNY - new york

Manor park is a beautiful park in Larchmont on the water, with breathtaking view. In the summer the kids love to run up and down the rocks, or just simply sit there and enjoy the view. You can not picnic in the park, and must have your dog on the leash at all times.

Harbor Island Park

Reviewed By Mary Jane D - New York City, New York

Driving by Harbor Island Park, I was taken in by the beautiful view of the harbor with its boats. There are places for sporting events, walking trails, and a sandy beach. There is a charge for parking in the summer.

Sands Point Preserve

Reviewed By Ezra B - New York City, New York

The Sands Point Preserve is a very nice nature park with trails, cliffs, beaches and great views. This is a place to free your mind from the hustle of city life and embrace the beauty of mother nature. The first iconic structure upon your visit is the Castle Gould, which was made from Onondaga Limestone that contains thousands of fossils.

I saw up to eight trails, although the map says six trails. I would recommend walking or taking a rugged bike with athletic gear. The trails are well organized, clean and well posted. There are private residences to the east, and the Hempstead House to the north west, which was holding a beautiful wedding on the day and time we visited. The park allows parking, camping and places in the woods to meditate, as we saw one gentleman doing.

Playland Park

Reviewed By bearcj - NJ

The park itself is very cute and has a lot of original and unique rides. Loved the old fashioned feel of the place but all the staff need to help retrained on customer service. Most were just plain rude and most were very uninterested in doing their jobs. It put a damper on the whole visit. Only one staff member on the dragon coaster was actually pleasant.
The food service also needs to revisit their policy and giving out water. Every theme park I have ever been to and since I'm a coaster enthusiast I have been to a lot, you my get a cup of water from the food stands. Not here. One staff member told us that they don't have water on their soda fountain, blatant lie as I could see the white tab that you use to get water.
Saw two staff members actually get into a fight. The male punched the girl in the face and took her phone and threw it into a restricted area. They were cursing and yelling at each other for a good 10 minutes and security was no where to be found.
Sadly will not return due to rude and Unenergized staff. Shame really as the park is great.

This is our go to theater! You can reserve seats ahead of time so you know where you are sitting plus the seats recline to almost flat! The food is actually good. The lines are long and not particularly fast but since you have an assigned seat there is no need to rush.

Woodlawn Cemetery

Occupying more than 400 acres in the Bronx, this cemetery is known for the ornate and imaginative mausoleums and monuments of some of the country's most famous industrialists and politicians. Notable individuals include Duke Ellington, Miles Davis, Celia Cruz, Irving Berlin, Herman Melville, and many more. Guide maps are available at both cemetery entrances.

Reviewed By mabeena - Bronx, NY

Go in through the Jerome Avenue gate. That is where you should start your tour. All the large mausoleums are there. So many famous people are buried here. Download a map or pick one up at the 233rd St gate. Tours are given and in the fall they have night time tours. it really is a beautiful peaceful setting

Marshlands Conservancy

Reviewed By de-la-f0lle-chans0n - Larchmont NY

Walk through the woods or take the path bordering the open field, and you'll feel as though you're in a primeval forest. Most visitors choose to begin their visit following the woodland path, past felled trees where squirrels play and woodpeckers flirt. The path most travelled leads out to the field path. Turn left, and it descends to the marshes and, a little farther on, to a beach with shells and seaweed. Woods, fields, marsh and beach: a little patch of the primeval in suburban Rye.
Remember that poison ivy tends to grow freely in settings such as these. Know how to spot the shiny three leaves, and wear socks.

Five Islands Park

Reviewed By Ashok G - New Delhi, India

This park constitutes a group of 5 islands interconnected by bridges set in undisturbed natural habitat with biodiversity. It is suited for families - for morning walk, for children and for seniors. Picnics are easy to organisze - grills are available. Permits for grills and car parking (only permit parking is allowed) can be obtained fro the city office at North Avenue. Beach is rocky and is suited only for sun bathing. Due to rocks, bathing & swimming is dangerous. Incidentally city sewage treatment plant is adjacent to the park and water would be unfit for humans to enter. Fishing is a favorite past time here.
