Very impressed! Lovely Greenway consisting of beautiful flowers, a mini Boardwalk, and walking/biking paths. Great views of the City, specifically the Freedom Tower. Scenic views of the Waterfront and even Jersey City, NJ looks good from here. Quick and scenic way to get to where...More

Yep, this is the length of the Waterfront Greenway, portions of which are managed by the City's Park & Recreation Dpt. It's for bikers and walkers who co-exist, not always peacefully. Type the name in your browser and you'll get a Map of the entire...More

If you are walking and do not want to fight the crowds and stop every few minutes to cross a street, then go to the Waterfront Greenway. Although it is called "Greenway" do not expect a lot of shade. In mid day, there are a...More

Great remodel after the floods. The view of the Hudson is worth the Trip. Close by to food and entertainment so go enjoy the site

This is a dedicated bike path but you will find that some people walk and run here. There is also a parallel foot path along the way that will join the bike path at times. Started at Pier 1 Café around W 70th St. and...More

With friends, we are walking the periphery of Manhattan. Not all in one day, as some would try. But, five to seven miles at a time. What a delight. You see the city from a completely different and rewarding view. Much better walking than riding,...More

If you think about riding a bike in New York than not only consider a tour in Central Park. This tour around Manhattan is just fantastic and has so much to offer. Cycling in New York City on bike paths separated from the car traffic...More

Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial
District is where New York City began as a center of
commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful
setting are complemented by museums, countless
skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District,
home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange.
Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view
of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis
