East River Park

Local nameJohn V. Lindsay East River Park
LocationManhattan, New York City

East River Park, also called John V. Lindsay East River Park, is 57.5-acre public park located on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, part of the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation. The park stretches along the East River from Montgomery Street up to 12th Street on the east side of the FDR Drive. The amphitheater, built in 1941 just south of Grand Street, has been reconstructed and is often used for public performances. The park includes football, baseball, and soccer fields; tennis, basketball, and handball courts; a running track; and bike paths, including the East River Greenway. Fishing is another popular activity. The park is bisected by the Williamsburg Bridge.

A New York Harbor Storm-Surge Barrier is under consideration, which would demolish and rebuild this park and others.
