Great view of nyc on a clear day. Very personal and elegant 9/11 memorial. Walking paths for all abilities on a paved path or in the woods. It was a Sunday so restaurant wasn’t open to public, but would love to return to it.

While the view is spectacular, it is also a nice place to go for a walk, to relax or simply for quiet speculation. There is also a thoughtful.9/11 memorial.

A great view of the New York skyline, lots of really nice nature walks where you can see plenty of wildlife and a moving 9/11 memorial.

Take a drive up or a hike through Eagle Rock reserve for a different perspective of Manhattan. From the ridge, you can look down on NYC. Great photos!

I was out of the country for the 9/11 anniversary this year, but I stopped here when I returned home. This a beautiful memorial and tribute to those we lost.
