Foursquare Tips

  • Sit on one of the benches by the East River, toward the top of the park behind Gracie Mansion, and you'll get a cool breeze, a great view and a bit of serenity of soaking up the water vibe!
  • Places to Run: Enter at 84th Street and take the Bobby Wagner Walk, lying along the East River. Run 2.2 miles to 125th Street, to enjoy breath-taking views of the East River islands.
  • Cuddle up on the benches behind the grand Gracie Mansion.
  • Sled like the Mayor does! Head to the lawn north of Gracie Mansion on wintry days and you'll find a sled-friendly hill.
  • Carl Schurz Park is a perfect place to relax for those who look for grassy areas outside of Central Park. A small field is perfect for sunbathicng or reading and a dog park lets pets run around.

  • Great View on the East River. Perfect for picnicking with friends or romantic dinner on the grass.
  • Sunbathe or sit in the shade under a tree in the less visible areas hidden behind the stair case at the entrance at 86th St. The area to the north of the staircase is great too.

  • Watch out for the dog poop everywhere. Otherwise it's a very pretty riverside park
