    If you haven't been to East River Park in a while, it's now better than ever. See some of the best views of Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens, especially during a morning run at sunrise. Read more

    Access the soccer and softball fields via Houston St. Otherwise, the next closest pedestrian access over the FDR is by the Williamsburg Bridge. Great cycling and running paths along the East River.

    If you run South on the path, there's a great moment, you suddenly notice Lady Liberty at the end of the island. You're in New York City and she's right here with you. Terrible turf fields though.

    The best time to be here is sunset or late at night when its quiet and calm...the amazing view is the icing on the cake...

    Good for "running"... Honesty I don't run, but the roadway lighting is good HIIT cardio. It is also a great spot to sit with friends family and your significant other.
  • Nick E.
    Underrated and under-populated compared to its counterpart on the west side. Definitely worth checking out!

    Once you manage to get past running across FDR, East River Park is a wonderful place for a jog.

    Nothing better than SummerStage returning in August this year to East River Park. The largest music, dance, and theater festival in NYC for the low-low price of free! #summerstage

    Born & raised in the LES. This park was the site of many childhood summer days. Check out the free entertainment @the amphitheater refurbished via a donation by Erin Brokoich.

    If you get to 14th street, you can either go right for a nice run along the river with parks and a track course. Or go left toward 34th, more hills and steps, a great work out.

    Great place to run, not over crowded because most people run on the trail next to the water.

    Lounge by the East River or take a jog on the running path, which ends on the Lower East Side.

    Running uptown ends at 38th st, where you can veer off into the streets or attempt to jump over the fence. Warning: there are helicopters
