Friday, November 16, 2018
7:00 a.m.–7:00 p.m.
This event repeats every weekday between 8/27/2018 and 12/31/2018.
Explore New York City's and New York State's southernmost point: The "South Pole" at Wards Point within Conference House Park. The geographical southern tip of the State overlooks the confluences of the Raritan Bay, Raritan River, and Arthur Kill water bodies.
The three miles of nearby natural shoreline are a beach comber’s paradise. Shells, rocks, and stones of every shape and size can be found here. Just a short distance to the north of the South Pole are the park’s clay colored bluffs where you can view city’s only exposed portion of the terminal moraine.
Not to be missed are the park’s other attractions: acres of woodland, four galleries, and five historic houses!
