FESTIVAL PARKS

Central Park | Cedar Hill

Set in the middle of Manhattan, Central Park is arguably one of the most famous parks in the world. Not only is it the first public park built in America, it is also one of the most frequently visited, with over 25 million guests per year. 


Washington Square Park

A marsh, a cemetery, a parade ground, a gathering spot for avant-garde artists, a battleground for chess enthusiasts, a playground for canines and children. Washington Square Park is well-known for its arch, honoring George Washington.


Tompkins Square Park

This popular park in the middle of the East Village is a perfect centerpiece for its eclectic neighborhood, which houses artists, radicals, fashion lovers, and those who have lived in the neighborhood for decades and witnessed its many changes.


Riverside Park Pier I

According to faithful visitors, Riverside Park, stretching four miles from 62nd to 158th Streets along the Hudson River, is Manhattan’s most spectacular waterfront park. Since 1875, the landscapes of Frederick Law Olmsted have offered escape from the city and opportunities for all people to relax, play, and socialize in a tranquil setting.


Columbia University | Morningside Heights

Columbia University, founded in 1754, is the oldest institution of higher learning in the state of New York. The steps of Low Memorial Library, the architectural centerpiece of the campus, provides Columbia University and Barnard College students, faculty, and staff with a comfortable and spacious outdoor platform and space for informal gatherings, events, and film screenings.


Transmitter Park | Greenpoint, Brooklyn

WNYC Transmitter Park was opened to the Greenpoint-Williamsburg communities in 2012. Once the working home of the WNYC radio transmission towers, the park is now a stunning green space, with natural areas and places for play and active recreation. The park includes an overlook to the south, seating, and a waterfront esplanade. At the end of Kent Street is a recreational pier with a view of the Manhattan skyline and East River.
