Close to the American Museum of Natural History. It has nice pathways for walking or running. There’s also a dog run area. Lots of lush green areas for lounging, picnics, or reading, or just enjoying the beauty. It’s close to lots of food trucks &...More

It was a decent smallish park right next to the Natural History Museum. Of course it's dwarfed by the Central park right across the street, but it's fairly clean and some decent clientele.

Just off Central Park this Theodore Roosevelt Park is a nice continuation to the green belt. We found it to be more peaceful and less crowded.

I waited for my companion in the Theodore Roosevelt Park on the north side of the American Museum of Natural History today. It was raining lightly, but the benches were relatively dry under the big trees, and it was a very peaceful experience.

I stopped here after my visit to the New York Historical Society museum and enjoyed a quiet place to sit and enjoy a quiet lunch. This is a small park but it is serene.

This is the park that surrounds New York Museum Natural History. Most of it seems fenced, but there are a number of benches to sit in shade and people watch.

Whilst walking from the apartment we rented to the natural history museum, we passed this little park so stopped for a short while and took in a nice piece of greenery in an otherwise concrete jungle. It's not that you would go here just to...More

Good park. Nice and quiet area just behind the museum of natural history. Soon they will be expanding the planetarium and taking up a large chunk of this historic park. Go there now while you can! Great Quiet Place that not a lot of people...More

Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the
Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a
quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of
downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the
city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the
American Museum of Natural History, which has been
welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for
over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center,

I don’t smoke, so I really don’t know. I just don’t remember if I saw people were or weren’t. Sorry I couldn’t be of more help.
