    This park was created with love in mind. Enjoy a stroll along Manhattan's Westside while taking in views of New Jersey. Best time to visit is during the early morning or while the sun is setting.

    The expansive park runs along the Hudson River and is one of eight officially designated scenic landmarks in New York. Sports fields, elm trees, and a public marina welcome neighbors of all kinds.

    This park is very Charming and overlooking the Hudson River. It is a park frequented more by locals for jogging, walking the dog or family. Worth a visit on a sunny day.

    Enter the park from 83rd st. and climb the rock to the right. This is where E.A. Poe used to sit & look at the Hudson. True, you can't see the river from that spot anymore (trees) but who cares? Poe!

    A four mile stretch along the waterfront, great for marathon training if you run down and into Battery Park at the bottom of the island, and then up the East River Path in a loop.

    Best, prettiest, and easiest route for bike commutes downtown - Traffic drives/parks in the bike lanes on UES/UWS, and Central Park is full of bored racist cops
