Walking along the Hudson River Park is a great way to forget that you are in New York City proper. The fresh(er) air and green(er) spaces are a welcome relief from the concrete. A bit windy in the winter, but if you're well covered it can be nice nonetheless.

A pleasant park with a nice, scenic view of the Hudson River. The park includes a beach volleyball court, a fancy children's playground, benches, and tables.

The state spent 50 Million building a beautiful river park with greens and bike path going from south to north. Playgrounds, sports centers, Skateboard park etc. Fantastic when the sun is going down. 10 minute walk to the river down a Greenwich Village Street.

I love running along the Hudson! When training for races, it's my favorite long run spot. The breeze from the water is lovely, the people watching is fantastic and the mileage is perfect!

Oftentimes, it is very easy to forget that Manhattan is actually an island — surrounded by beautiful open water views and wide promenades to stroll and cycle. I have lived here my whole life and I still do a double-take when I catch a glimpse of a boat going by or see more then a few trees in a cluster. Hudson River Park is a long expanse along the base of New York City that is getting more developed and exciting with each passing year. Starting at Chambers street and walking down to the tip of the island is a long and scenic esplanade lined with playgrounds and open lawns for picnics, people watching, and feeling a bit like you are NOT in New York City. For the kids, check out Rockefeller Playground which offers something for all ages as well as the secluded Tear Drop Park with its hidden sprinkler grottoes and giant slide into a sand pit. Also be sure to poke into the World Financial Center for a scoop of gelato or a burger from the famous PJ Clarks. At the very base is Wagner Park that has amazing views of the Statue of Liberty and on summer weekends they almost always have something going on for young kids.
