East River Park
East River Park, avec le Williamsburg Bridge

L'East River Park est un jardin public situé dans le quartier de Lower East Side dans le borough de Manhattan, à New York. Il s'étend le long de l'East River de Montgomery Street à la 12e rue. L'entrée sud offre de beaux points de vue sur le Manhattan Bridge et le Brooklyn Bridge. L'amphithéâtre, bâti en 1941 a été reconstruit après les attentats du 11 septembre 2001, et est souvent utilisé pour des spectacles publics. Le parc a récemment subi d'importantes rénovations et comporte maintenant des terrains de football américain, baseball, football, basketball, handball, courts de tennis, ainsi qu'une piste d'athlétisme et des pistes cyclables. On peut aussi y pratiquer la pêche. Le parc est traversé par le Williamsburg Bridge.

Conçu au début des années 1930 par Robert Moses, East River Park a été ouvert en 1939. Auparavant, l'emplacement était un important embarcadère de marchandises puis il servit de refuge à de nombreux immigrants. Il est le plus grand espace vert de Lower East Side. Bien qu'il soit victime des nuisances de plus en plus importantes dues à l'accroissement de la circulation dans les rues alentours, il reste un lieu de repos pour les habitants de Lower East Side, en particulier en été grâce à la brise rafraîchissante de l'East River.
