Stargazing in Inwood Hill Park
This location is the best place to see stars in Manhattan. This "Forever Wild" park has no streetlamps and we are 200 feet above the city lights below. Dark and wonderful, it is a great way to experience the night sky right near home.
All stargazing outings are a no-alcohol, no-noise events.
Inwood Hill Park, 218th St. & Indian Rd. NYC if it looks clear out, and it's a weekend night, check out http://www.moonbeam.net/InwoodAstronomy/location-ihphilltop.shtml and see if we are going up. Times will typically be from 8:00 PM until late. But the Park closes at 1:00 AM, so you'll need to be out of there by then.
