Marcus Garvey or Mount Morris Park

Some say Marcus Garvey Park stands above the rest. And, well, it physically does. The major feature of Marcus Garvey Park is “The Arcropolis.” This giant rock–an anomoly of sorts in Manhattan–which bulges 70 feet into the air right in the middle of the park. On a clean day you can hike up to the top and get views of the George Washington Bridge, Empire State Building, the Cathedral of St. John the Devine, and even Grant's Tomb! Plenty of space in this park to enjoy, and shady spots to sit and relax.

Also features a community recreation center with spaces for performances, weight lifting, and children's game room. The pool, which traditionally opens on July 4th weekend, is available to for swimming during the summertime.
