My favourite part of the park are the hammocks:
If you’re not lucky enough to score a free hammock, the sunbeds are also a great spot to relax and watch the sun set behind the Manhattan skyline.
Gantry Plaza State Park is also home to the old Pepsi Cola sign:
The sky above New York was so pretty on the day I visited – another thing that made that day one of my favourite days spent in NYC.
The clostest subway station to the park is Vernon Blvd/ Jackson Av (7 train) but you could also take the East River Ferry. places nearby: the 5pointz graffiti building, the Unisphere in the Flushing Meadows Corona Park and the murals on India street in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.
