John Farrell lives nearby and noticed recent renovations to the park, and stopped by to have a look. He's not much impressed with British royalty, but has to admit the changes are nice.
"I'd say it's a very tastefully done park, very beautiful, and I respect the British government for building it."
Cheryl Pawlowski is an insurance broker who stops at the park everyday and is impressed with the neighborhood's rich history and the previous royalty who have paid visits to the tulip and daffodil lined park.
"And now you have Prince Harry and it's nice to have a place where so many people for so many years have touched and been and sat, it's on going."
Prince Harry will also visit the Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Manhattan before his polo match tomorrow in the Veuve Clicquot Manhattan Polo Classic on Governors Island.
