Gorman Park is a "neighborhood" park 1.89 acres in area in the Washington Heights neighborhood of New York City.[1] It is bounded by Broadway on the west and Wadsworth Terrace on the east and stretches from 188th to 190th Streets. The land rises more than a hundred feet in a steep incline from Broadway to Wadsworth. The park features a path that winds upward among trees. In 2011 it became the focus of a local zoning and land use dispute when Quadriad Realty Partners proposed to build new residential towers taller than the by-right zoning rules permit on a vacant lot adjacent to the park in exchange for adding land to the park and thoroughly renovating it.[2]

Locals refer to this park as "Crackhead" Park.[citation needed]
