Most running guides to New York City focus on the island of Manhattan. But New York City is composed of five boroughs: Manhattan, Brooklyn, the Bronx, Queens, and Staten Island. All of them offer some great running options, most accessible via public transportation. In this guide, we focus on the best places to run in the New York City Boroughs, New York. There’s also information on how to get to the routes and suggested areas to stay. Note: If you’d like to have a guided running experience in the NYC area, we highly recommend our affiliate partner Go! Running Tours.
