    Raul Perez is from your area as well, if/when he sees this thread I a sure he will chime in.

    I remember a thread here about some guy who sleeps in his hammock in central park, but up in the tree somehow....:what:

    Saw this thread but I didn't respond because I can't answer the OP question. He wants something close like a park near NYC. I usually hike in Harriman state park and I don't think that's the location he wants.

    Stay gangsta!

    Cheers for the suggestions, guys, I'm thinking Astoria and Saxon Woods are likely the closest.

    Any other suggestions would be most welcome - thank you.

    Appreciate the nod for John Jay Park, Shug - love the videos, keep 'em coming.

    Sorry i never camped overnight in Astoria Park. But i have set up and chilled all day in my hammock. Right now after work i would bring my Kindle and my Dinner (takeout) with me and hang all night untill late in the evening.

    For a quick overnight. Heirmann state park is just an hour away. It has great trails and shelter if needed. I have camped out there twice already. I really enjoyed it. Hope this helps.

    Yeah I'm hoping I can find somewhere to actually overnight field test new gear, and I know Harriman quite well - Fahnestock State Park on the 301 is about 45 mins from me, too.

    Thanks guys for all the suggestions, very much appreciated.

    You guys in Westchester should look at Ward Pound Ridge. It is a great place. I recently spent my first hammock night there. They have no problem with hammocks either.
