My daughter and I visited NYC over Spring break and happened to stay one mile from the Weehauken dueling grounds site. We are big Hamilton fans and decided to check it out. Not a big park, will take you all of 15 or 20 minutes to enjoy, but well worth the stop. First you get to stand where history was... More

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......

The park offers a great view of Manhattan skyline at night time. Nice place to walk or just sit and relax. Not much else to do here.

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. It provided a beautiful view of midtown Manhattan, which did not look impressive in daytime, but neon lights and city lights made it look impressive after sunset. My son and I were lucky there the day after the Veterans' Day.... More

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,... More

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.
