Beautiful Park
Sep 2021 • Family
Beautiful park with stunning views of Manhattan. The park is huge, lots of seating (benches & table and also lawn so you can spread a blanket), playing ground for kids, dog park, bathroom and places to eat. You can also take the ferry over to Manhattan and also others stops. Parking lots are close by also and there are street parking if you want to take that chance. Lots of food trucks also

Nasty food trucks
Jul 2021
Gantry park was beautiful 6 years ago , however now the nasty dirty food trucks took over and its horrible. The neighborhood has turned into a 24 hour carnival . Be aware of the rats looking for food all over the floor .

Great views and food trucks
Jun 2021
Hit it at sunset for great river walk. Lots of food trucks and restaurants. Or just hit CVS for snacks and have a picnic.

Fantastic Views of Midtown Manhattan, Worth the Visit to Long Island City
Jun 2021 • Solo
Park offers fantastic views of Midtown Manhattan that you simply cannot miss. The walking course takes about 45 minutes and follows the East River waterfront. The park also includes the famous Pepsi neon sign as well the Long Island Ferry dock sign. Its only one subway stop from Grand Central Station, very accessible for those staying in Manhattan. The views are worth a quick trip out to Long Island City.

Unsafe! biker gangs & drugs
May 2021
I would recommend avoiding this place as motor bike gangs roam around freely cursing and yelling at people who just minding their own business. I notice this few times and it happened both during the day and in the evenings. The cursing involve calling names, racial slurs (to mainly Asians who are mostly the demographic in this area) and random acts of violence. There is also heavy use of drugs going on next to Pepsi Cola & ferry stop. This was shocking to me as this park suppose to be better kept since its right behind a luxury condos.

There is no way to complain about these issues and obviously whoever is responsible of maintaining peace is not interested in anyway.

Great Views of Manhattan Skyline
Apr 2021
Gantry State Park is located on the eastern edge of the East River in Long Island City, Queens. Easy access from the "train" or the water ferry from Manhattan. Great views of the Midtown Manhattan skyline. Multi-purposes: plenty of seats, a great new children's playground, and a wonderful places for a romantic stroll or a dog walk. Please check it out. Visitors can combine with a visit to the hip Greenpoint, Brooklyn neighborhood or to see the nearby MOMA PS 1 art museum. The iconic Pepsi sign is here.

My favorite park ever!
Feb 2021 • Friends
One of my favorite Piers and parks to take any kind of walk. Whether looking for a romantic place to take your loved one or a family member visiting from overseas, this place has it all! I have been coming here for over two decades. The place has definitely transformed and it is better than ever. Must see!

An awesome place to just relax at sunset or with morning coffee on an adirondack chair. The peace and quiet is unmatched!

We love going here
Jan 2020
This is a very manicured park with extraordinary views of midtown Manhattan. We love bringing our son to the nearby library and then going to the playgrounds nearby. Very picturesque, very clean, very fun.
