East River Park


in East Village & Lower East Side

In addition to the great ballparks, running and biking paths, 5000-seat amphitheater that hosts concerts, and expansive patches of green, this park has cool, natural breezes and fine views of the Williamsburg, Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridges.

Although flanked by a looming housing project and the clogged FDR Dr on one side and the less-than-pure East River on the other, it’s a fine spot for a stroll or a morning run.
