Gantry Plaza State Park

Worth a visit? We're staying at the Country Inn & Suites in LIC so won't be too far away. Bearing in mind that we already have quite a tight schedule planned, but don't want to miss something nearby...it looks like a good spot for photos of the Manhattan skyline - would you as locals recommend it?

Yeah, it's a lovely view and there are some nice cafes nearby. I like Communitea.

I'm not a local but as a visitor I definitely found it worth visiting. We also stayed at a LIC hotel and opted to have dinner at an Italian restaurant called Manetta's, near the Jackson-Vernon stop on the 7 line, and then walked to the park after dinner. Beautiful view of the Manhatten skyline and the Queensborough bridge. Also an opportunity to take pictures of the Long Island and Pepsi Cola signs.

Yes as a visitor. Based on morefam's suggestion, we visited on our way back to Chelsea from Flushing in the 7. My hubby got some great pix of the skyline. We also walked across Brooklyn Bridge... that is still superior but this was definitely worthwhile especially since you will be in LIC.
