Located along the East River in Long Island City, Hunters Point Park is one of New York City’s newest parks.  It has spectacular views of the Manhattan skyline and unobstructed views of the sky in almost all directions.  The park has a large oval field where kids play, and a covered snack bar with tables for sitting and eating.  There’s a nice write-up on the Park, with maps and photos here.

The AAA observes on the two (or three) successive Fridays a month when the Moon is in the evening sky.  We set up our telescopes just west of the oval, at the far west end of Borden Avenue, starting around sunset.
