New York, New Jersey, and New England have almost 40 great national park sites, ranging from the spectacular coastal parks of Acadia, Cape Cod, and Fire Island to the rich historical sites depicting the birth and growth of our nation. NPCA’s work in the Northeast encompasses a growing number of these sites throughout the region.

NPCA's Northeast Regional Office has been working to build support for the national park sites in and immediately around New York City, which face significant underfunding in the National Park System and hold tremendous potential for restoration. The national parks of New York City total more than 27,000 acres of parkland as well as numerous historical and cultural sites. Iconic national parks include include the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, Governors Island, Grant's Tomb, and Gateway National Recreation Area. NPCA also supports a number of local national park treasures, like Paterson Falls, Thomas Edison National Historic Park, Hamilton Grange and Lowell National Historical Park.

The largest national park in the New York region and NPCA's current Northeast regional focus is Gateway. Gateway encompasses the majority of the remaining natural areas surrounding the Hudson River estuary, including beachfront, salt marsh, maritime shrub, and coastal grasslands. The park also lies in a major botanical transition zone where northern and southern forest species converge, and at the juncture of the Atlantic Flyway, serving as a major stop-over point for all eastern avian migrants.
