Gantry Plaza State park was first opened in 1998 and has since been developed into a 12-acre oasis with a big waterfront that has the best views of the Manhattan skyline. Stop by at night for a front-row seat of the Empire State Building all lit up. The park has playgrounds, basketball courts, handball courts, a fishing pier and a nice boardwalk for runners. You can also sit back and relax by watching the boats go by at the Waterfront, or get wet with the free kayaking courtesy of the LIC Boathouse (www.licboathouse.org)
