Besides the waterfront view and the various flora of Stuyvesant Cove Park, the hidden gems are the Monarch butterflies that appear in the park during the summer. New Yorkers don’t have to wait for the occasional butterfly tagging events held in the park to catch a glimpse of these orange and black wings, because according to park manager Daisy Hoyt, Stuyvesant Cove is a “way station” for the migrating Monarchs.
