"Fantastic Manhattan Skyline Views" New York City Off The Beaten Path Tip by TexasDave
New York City Off The Beaten Path: 983 reviews and 1,287 photos
Gantry Plaza State Park is an area of 12 acres on the waterfront in Queens that offers great views of most of the Manhattan skyline. Gantries are a type of lift or crane used in the 1920's to unload rail cars from barges. The area is basically a place to sit and enjoy the views. So far I haven't been able to go by at night time but that's my goal on a future trip.
The park has been used in many TV commercials and some movies.
This is a little off the average tourist's radar but not too difficult to get to, the nearest subway station is Vernon Blvd, Jackson Ave on the 7 line.
