I almost don't even want to review this because I love the park so much and I don't want it to get too crowded. It's honestly so cute I've got to share. It's got two dog pens - one for big dogs and one for...More

A small gem of a park used by neighborhood residents. Includes esplanade along the river, great river views, children’s park, grassed sitting areas, dog runs and wonderfully garden lanes and hidden sitting areas. Less then a mile long the park offers varied walks and views...More

Carl Schulz Park is on E. End Ave. and is where the mayors mansion is located. There’s a Riverwalk on the outside of the park. There are a couple of dog runs one specifically for small dogs which is a lot of fun to walk...More

Great place to go for a jog or simply sit on the promenade to watch the world go by. Basketball courts available. (Bring your own ball). Plenty of separate space for dogs to take their owners for a social poop! It's small compared to central...More

Stumbled upon this park by accident. In the city for business and was doing a morning walk on the Upper Eastside. I saw the entrance off of East End Ave and went to take a look. The park follows the East River with great views...More

This fairly large space is just south of Gracie Mansion and is one of the few public parks directly on the East River. It is largely a neighborhood park; very few city visitors go there or even know about it. The park contains two playgrounds,...More

We spent some time earlier this week in this primeval park near the East River. It was full of folks walking their dogs and we were surprised that so many of them knew each other by name, and by how well behaved the dogs were....More

We walked through Carl Schurz Park this evening, and had a lovely time. The trees are in full leaf and many of the summer flowers have begun to bloom. There must've been 1000 people enjoying various parts of the park, everything from picnicking to just...More

Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighbourhoods that have
easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural
institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most
livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth
Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of
the nation's most famous attractions in a single
stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the
Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the
