- Overlooking the East River, Carl Schurz Park surrounds Gracie Mansion, the home of the mayor of the City of New York. The views are great, and the promenade along the water is a popular place for a leisurely stroll. The gardens are gorgeous in full bloom, and offer many twisting lanes and lawns. A basketball court and playground are available to the public, and the open spaces are perfect for bikes or in-line skates. During the summer, there is a water sprinkler for children.
