St. Nicholas Park in Hamilton Heights and Manhattanville is one of my favorite parks in NYC. It’s borders the City College of New York (photos to come) and is home to a historic museum (more photos to come). What’s really cool about this park is that you can actually BBQ here and have a real picnic in the middle of the city!
