    I’ve been to all of these parks except for the Socrates one. I agree that these parks (the first 4 that I’ve been to) are “must sees”!

      Thanks! There are so many great parks in NYC, it can be hard to choose which to visit. If this list were longer I’d add Brooklyn Bridge Park, which is newly expanded 🙂

    Great post Leslie! And very handy for visitors to NYC too.. I for one, have heard tons about Central Park but never had the chance to visit yet. It’s definitely top on my list for when I visit NYC some day!

      Hope you get to visit Central Park soon! It’s a beautiful oasis in the middle of a bustling city.

    I love all of these parks and while no park comes close to Central Park, I lived right next to Battery Park for 4 years and I have a lot of beautiful memories from there.

      So you have an insider perspective on Battery Park! Every time I go I seem to spot something I never noticed before. We just went to the Irish memorial, a very cool (man-made) hill of green grass you can walk up. Love the unexpected in NYC 🙂

      You need to make it to NYC soon! There are so many beautiful parks to see… Spring, Summer and Fall are great times to stroll through our patches of green.

      Thanks Charu! It’s such a gem. Although whenever I set out to go this summer I was foiled by subway issues. Grrrr!

    Have you been to Highline? I really liked that park! Ah, NYC. I miss it!

      Yes! The highline is fun 🙂 I like people-watching and seeing the city views there. These other parks are ideal for lounging around though!

    I really like the Brooklyn Bride Park and the park on Governor’s Island
