We took the lightrail from Exchange Place in Jersey City to Port Imperial ferry, and while leaving the lightrail station, turn left on the walking bridge enter the iron stairway up to Pershing Rd, turn right towards JFK Blvd E, turn left to Hamilton Park (about 15 min walk) and enjoying both of the amazing views and the silence of the park. If you have time and want (one of) the best views of Manhattan, highly recommend a visit to Hamilton Park in Weehawken.

Great place to take in majestic views of New York City and the Hudson River in the background. Only downside is that the park does not allow dogs.

Such a gem!! The view of midtown is spectacular. I’ve been in New York for over 30 years and this is my first time here. I’ll definitely be back with the family.

My daughters obsession with Hamilton led us to visit Hamilton Park in Weehawken and what an off the beaten track gem it is with the most incredible, uninterrupted views of Midtown Manhattan. Also benefits from being out of the way and not on the tourist trail so it's easy to take photo's. Definitely worth a few hours walk or light rail/tram ride up to Weehawken.

For the Hamilton fans, this is where you can find the infamous Hamilton-Burr dueling ground. Also an absolutely gorgeous view of the Manhattan skyline, seeing everywhere the Upper West to Lower Manhattan and all the piers in between.

Nice park with amazing views. In addition to Alexander Hamilton’s death rock, there are several memorials for veterans of various wars.

Best views of NYC by far. You can see the whole island from the George Washington Bridge all the way down to one world trade and the Verrazzano Bridge.

In my opinion, for views of NYC:

1. Hamilton Park in Weehawken and walking along Blvd East.
2. Brooklyn Promenade
3. Liberty State Park
4. Gantry State Park, Long Island City.

Great spot to walk around touting some on the best skyline views from the Jersey side. Not much parking, on street.
