The site commemorating the Hamilton and Burr duel is at the far end of Hamilton Park on Hamilton Street in Weehawken. It can be reached by taxi (a short ride) from NY Waterways Port Imperial terminal. The boat leaves from 12 Ave and 39th St. in Manhattan. NY Waterways has free bus service which crosses Manhattan to their Hudson river... 更多
Walk along the Hudson and up the steps to the top of the Pallisades. seat views and gets your heart rate up. Fresh air and great views.
One of my favorite sites, and my favorite viewing place of Manhattan. In those rare instances where I'm with someone and want to give an overview of Manhattan to, I take them to this park as a viewing area. Especially at night, to see the skyline and the ongoing activity from an elevated angle is incredible. Love this place......
If you're in the area, check it out. After hearing about this in junior high school, high school and college history courses, it's nice to have seen it. However if you go, go just to sunset into the evening so you can enjoy the lights of the New York skyline.
Thanks to one reviewer, we parked our car right in front of Hamilton Park. It was very small, but interesting.

My son and I were lucky there the day after the Veterans' Day.... 更多
This is the best spot on the west side of the city to take pictures. Especially at night. You can also just take a walk around and enjoy the beacutiful city light. Love it.
I ABSOLUTELY love Hamilton Park! My first night in Jersey I went there because I wanted to see a good view of NYC, and MAN was it! Very cute hillside Park, benches, monuments, gorgeous architecture, in a beautiful neighborhood, and a perfect spot to watch the sun set to get some beautiful shots of the city! Visited more than once,... 更多
It's a hidden gem. It's far away from the tourists. You might see one or two, though. It's easy to park on the street. The actual park is very small. Take a walk, get a nice view of the city skyline. Wonderful to visit in the evening. Great for photography.
Stopped by here Sunday morning before going to the MetLife stadium for football game. Best spot to get a full panoramic view of New York. Getting here was not easy. I used the address in Tripadvisor (400 Park Ave, Weehawken, NJ). But I was not able to get to the park. Later I found the right address: 773 Boulevard E,... 更多
