    Nestled in a quiet area of downtown, Hamilton Park in J. C. reflects the history and serenity of its surroundings. A victorian-era park of the same name is the focal point to this great neighborhood!  -- Mark Trompeter via Foursquare

    A monument in memory of people dead at 11th September attack . There is a peace of metal from the original WTC buildings. -- Alex Aprisco via Foursquare

    If you're a runner, this place is the best for long runs - a nice flat 4-mile loop, bathrooms, easy parking, and all in the shadow (figuratively) of the Statue of Liberty and the NYC skyline. -- Ross Snyder via Foursquare

    This zany science museum is home to the first Hoberman sphere. Though geared toward littles (the calendar is packed with interactive learning events), it brings out the childish nerd in any adult. -- DailyCandy via Foursquare

    A quaint little park with a fountain, chess tables, playgrounds, and a dog run. Farmers market every Saturday from 8:30a-3p mid-April through December. Outdoor films select Wednesdays in the summer. -- Vineet Shah via Foursquare

    Thank publisher Joseph Pulitzer—yes, that Pulitzer—for stimulating enough American donations to pay for Lady Liberty’s pedestal. His statue is at the walkway near the left entrance to the statue. -- Time Out New York via Foursquare

    This fascinating museum gives visitors a great insight into what life was like 100 years ago. Walk where your ancestors once walked and see if you can find your last name in the immigrant database! -- New York Habitat via Foursquare

    A beautiful suburban-esque park on the West Side with 21 outdoor tennis courts (free for Hudson Co. residents). Try not to get distracted by the planes overhead making their descent to Newark Airport! -- Vineet Shah via Foursquare

    Clean up after your dogs people, we don't want to smell there poop! -- Alison M via Foursquare

    I learned something new here today about the polish during world War 2 (actually I kinda always knew. Watch "The Way Back"). -- Neal Williams via Foursquare
