Great playground area and beautiful views. The area is very clean and sanitary. There are bathrooms. One of the best playgrounds in the northern NJ area.

“Awesome view of NYC skyline”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014

This park along with the adjacent Hudson River green space is a gem. You ge the best view of NYC skyline both day and night (best vista). Great for picnic, people watching, leisure stroll and jog. The only draw back is the occasional homeless people hanging around and the stench.

“Great views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014

Incredible views of the city and the train terminal from a delightful park on a pier. The greenery isn't huge, but is a great place for a picnic with an incredible view. The view of New York from here is unparalleled and makes for great pictures and ambiance.

“Stunning views of New York! Great place to relax and enjoy the activity on the Hudson River!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2014

Pier C Park runs along the Hudson River and looks out over Manhattan. It is a beautiful area to walk, sit and visit, and/or play with the children. It is a well-designed and planned park. It has ample seating, wide open spaces, shaded seating, playground area (e.g., large slide), etc. The stunning views go from the Verrazano up along Manhattan to the GW Bridge. My husband and I love watching all of the activity on the Hudson – sail boats, cruise ships, ferry boats, water taxis, kayakers, and more!

Few NYC tourists think of visiting Hoboken. This is a shame. It is extremely easy to get to Hoboken – bus, PATH, or train. If you want incredible views of the City and want to take some stunning photographs, Pier C is a wonderful place to visit. Once you are in Hoboken, there are many restaurants along Frank Sinatra Drive. There are also a number of fantastic restaurants on Washington Street. (Hoboken is only one square mile so it is very easy to walk around.) You can also bring a picnic lunch to eat at several parks along the Hudson River in Hoboken. Here's another tip. Go to Hoboken to have breakfast or brunch at La Isla Restaurant on Washington Street. (Omar's Stuffed French Toast beat Bobby Flay in Throwdown!) Then, walk over to Pier C. Enjoy!

“Pretty Spot to Enjoy Hoboken's Charm...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2014

Pretty park that's been well planned, constructed and maintained. Gorgeous views from the Verrazano to the George Washington Bridges...oh, and everything in between! Open grassy areas, walkways, trees, playgrounds, lots of benches and more VIEWS!! Pretty lighting at night and very safe feel. Really liked our time strolling through and enjoying this place built for everyone...
