An iconic urban run and certainly an oasis in Manhattan. Numerous options: 7 mile perimeter path, reservoir route with great skyscraper views, woodsy sections, grand allées.
One of the great runs anywhere, with paths, piers, & parks along the Hudson River on Manhattan's west side stretching for 12 miles from Lower Manhattan to the George Washington Bridge. Iconic views of the river, the New Jersey skyline, & Freedom Tower.
Great running alternatives at the northern end of the Hudson River Greenway: Fort Tyron Park's 8 miles of paths and killer stairs, and Inwood Hill Park's wooded trails. And it IS possible to run over the George Washington Bridge!
A car-free waterfront esplanade along Manhattan’s east side, from Battery Park in the south to 125th Street in north, with a 1.2 mile-long gap near the U.N. HQ. Some sections are spectacular, others a little more industrial and being improved.
Incorporating one New York’s iconic bridges is an integral part of the running experience in New York City. Brooklyn Bridge is a ‘must do’. This nearly 4-mile run features the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges.
A fabulous run with water and skyline views. It’s about 4 miles around the perimeter, with parks on each end. To access the island by foot you have to cross the Queensboro Bridge. Or, access via tram or subway.
