New York Parks and Rec describes Gantry Plaza as a "riverside oasis," and that it is. The 12 acre park in Long Island City features four elevated piers and platforms for max-level vista basking. Gratuitously reclined armchairs encourage a good lounge while taking in the Manhattan skyline. The park includes basketball and handball courts, playgrounds, fishing pier with cleaning table, and a nearby dogrun. It's an easy stroll to the waterfront from the trusty 7 train through the most heavily gentrified business of this rapidly gentrifying neighborhood. There's no shortage of seafood restaurants nearby, with shopping and cafes two blocks away on Vernon Boulevard.
