The biggest park in the area w/beautiful views of the Statue of liberty and Ellis Island. Tips from an article about the park: Take the ferry to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, which is available at the park. The park features a multitude of activities and its visitors' and interpretive centers provide historical background information. There is boating and canoeing on the Hudson River and New York Bay, plus picnic areas, a playground, food concessions, areas for fishing and crabbing and a marina.

Prime Market has staples, but not extensive perishable items. There is a small selection of fresh fruits and vegetables, but mostly a go-to for snacks, milk, and pantry items like coffee, honey, aluminum foil, etc. If you arrive late and just need to grab a few items to hold you over, this is the right place.
