This is a great area to walk and see the city skyline! It’s a old railroad that they converted to to a public park! This place is usually bustling with both tourists and locals! It’s such a beautiful place to visit and walk!

Nice place to walk and chat. Stop for ice cream or cold drinks. It gets pretty crowded during summer.

A once-abandoned elevated train track that was transformed into a crazy-popular, bucolic walkway. It’s 1.45-mile park’s gardens, taking in sweet views of the Hudson, the Whitney Museum of Art plenty of pretty flowers and plants that are mostly indigenous to the region.

There’s something uniquely New York about this aerie. Built on an abandoned railway track, the space is ingenious in its use of reclaimed industrial detritus, a necessity in footage-starved Manhattan. But what we like best is how the pathway takes you above the city while keeping you rooted in urban…

Relatively new attraction in the historic meatpacking district. Right next to Chelsea Market -- perfect for a stroll on a sunny day.

Park
“A walk, peddle, or carriage ride through the crisscrossing pathways of Central Park is a must-do on anyone's New York City itinerary. In winter, you can even lace up your skates and glide across Wollman Rink. This huge park in the city center, a half-mile wide and 2.5 miles long, is one of the things that makes New York such a beautiful and livable city. Besides being a great place to experience a little nature, Central Park has many attractions within its borders, and most of them are free, making it one of the few cheap things to do in NYC. Some of the most popular places to visit include the Belvedere Castle, Strawberry Fields, the Central Park Zoo, and the Lake. If you are exploring the park on your own, start by picking up a map at one of the visitor centers and plot your routing.”

“Absolutely incredible museum-- easy to drive and park in their parking garage. The garage is not well advertised-- we have found it very accessible and when you enter the museum from the garage, you can skip the line in front!”
