Manhattan

Here are some of my favorite/more visited parks in the city, but there are so many not listed.
The Classic. If it's your first time, it's a must see. Interesting things to note: - the south east side is much more ornate with willows and boulders reaching out into lakes. The Central Park Zoo will also be found on the East Side. - the West side offers large fields to lay out. - The famous Bethesda Fountain is along 72nd street. - The Delacorte Theater (Shakespeare in the Park) is located on 81st street. - The zoo is on 64th st on the East side.

A former elevated train, this narrow park runs from the Village to Hudson yards. Watch the city transform as you walk the length of the park. Can even stop to watch the cars in its various traffic theaters.

Right behind the Public Library, this small park sees a lot of action: a christmas market during the holidays, yoga, concerts, and outdoor movies in the summertime. It's a nice place to sit and take a break from shopping or site seeing.

Brooklyn's Central Park. Unlike Central Park, however, in Prospect Park, you cannot see surrounding sky scrapers. You can truly escape the city.

One of my favorite parks. It's a simple square in the beautiful brownstone neighborhood of Ft. Greene. In summer, this is a great spot for tennis. There is a farmer's market. It's a great spot to feel the local/family oriented side of Brooklyn
