Queensboro Oval

Queensboro Oval [OpenStreetMap]

Originally set aside during construction of the Queensboro Bridge, the space instead became a park nestled under the new bridge. Bounded by York Ave and between 59th and 60th, this park uses the bridge as a covering for its baseball and tennis facilities.

A small recreation field/courts at West of York Ave., E 59 St. To E 60 St. in Manhattan
