Pocket Parks of NYC
One East River Place is a lovely, shady park at the extreme east end of 72nd Street east of York Street in New York City. Because of its location at a dead-end, it is a peaceful place to visit especially with the soothing waterfall at the back. When you get tired of sitting, you can take a walk to the end of the 72nd Street to view the East River, Roosevelt Island and the United Nations building to the South. Dog-lovers may find this fun since it seems everyone walks there dog in this area with pooper-scoopers and plastic baggies in hand, ready to pick up their doggie's little 'presents.'
I don't know why some people think New York City is unfriendly. As I was standing in front of the park trying to get an idea of the best angle for a photo, a man apparently heading back to his office with his lunch asked me if I needed help finding something. He thought I was lost. He then asked for more information about my project which I was happy to provide. If you are reading this, kind sir, thank you for being a nice New Yorker!
