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.”

“The High Line is a 1.45-mile-long elevated linear park, greenway and rail trail created on a former New York Central Railroad spur on the west side of Manhattan in New York City. The High Line's design is a collaboration between James Corner Field Operations, Diller Scofidio + Renfro, and Piet Oudolf. The abandoned spur has been redesigned as a "living system" drawing from multiple disciplines which include landscape architecture, urban design, and ecology. Since opening in 2009, the High Line has become an icon of contemporary landscape architecture. The park is built on a disused, southern viaduct section of the New York Central Railroad line known as the West Side Line. Originating in the Meatpacking District, the park runs from Gansevoort Street – three blocks below 14th Street – through Chelsea to the northern edge of the West Side Yard on 34th Street near the Javits Center. The West Side Line formerly extended south to a railroad terminal at Spring Street, just north of Canal Street, and north to 35th Street at the site of the Javits Center. The southern portion of the viaduct was demolished in segments during the late 20th century”

“The hippies who famously turned up and tuned out in Washington Square Park are still there in spirit, and indeed often in person. In warmer months the park—which was once a potter’s field—is one of the best people-watching spots in the city, hummings with musicians and street artists, while skateboarders clatter near the base of the iconic 1895 Washington Arch (a modest replica of Paris’s Arc de Triomphe). Plus, kids can splash in the area's new fountain on sweltering days.”

“Need a place to jog? Play some basketball? Let your pup off leash? This park is a little bit of a walk, but it's worth it, as it is the best park in the area. Have you seen the Netflix show "It's Bruno!"? They frequent this park. There's also a bunch of great places to eat, cool boutiques, and vintage shops nearby. ”

“A must see if you are walking the waterfront it Hoboken. Pier C juts into the Hudson River and thought it's small, offers interesting terrain, and fabulous views of NYC. There's also a playground built into the landscape for kids to play. ”

“A tiny little wisp of a park, but probably my favorite park in the city (and I live around the corner from the much more grandiose Brooklyn Bridge Park). I'll bring along a book to read, and sometimes I do, but it's a better place for people watching. Grab a cuppa from the coffee shop on the corner, Tekoa. ”

Playground
“This park is very nice and relaxing. Beautiful place to take a walk and wonder in the woods. The fields are well placed and lengthy. Several parking lots and there's a neat playground for the kids. There's also a dog park and several basketball courts. The area is safe and right off of the Grand Central Highway. It's right next to Union Turnpike where there are many local food spots to check up. Good spot to go and play in the snow in the winter as well.”

“When you planned your trip to New York City you probably didn’t contemplate being able to dip your toes into the East River! At Pebble Beach, you can walk down to the water, watch it lap up against the land and take a pebble for a souvenir. The water is clean enough that the Brooklyn Bridge Boathouse sponsors a free kayaking program every summer where you can get 20 minutes free of kayak time and get out into the river, It is really an unusual experience that not many travelers know about. It is NOT something you will forget. Bring a waterproof camera!”

“Hudson River Park is a waterside park on the North River, and is the part of the Manhattan Waterfront Greenway that extends from 59th Street south to Battery Park in the New York City borough of Manhattan. It is a joint state and city collaboration, but is organized as a New York State public-benefit corporation. Riding a bicycle along the Hudson River is my favorite, It’s so beautiful, scenic and calm. You’re surrounded by everyone doing the same thing and sharing that space.”
