Hudson River to West Side Hwy, New York, NY | Directions 1001140.746497 -74.009447
Manhattan's Riviera on the Hudson – Along the Hudson River lies Manhattan's best waterfront alternatives to the concrete jungle: trapeze classes, driving ranges, breweries, soccer fields, fishing, and free kayaking. Or try some ice-skating, catch a free yoga class, or free flick--drive-in style, sans cars. If that's not enough, take a ferry ride to the Jersey Shore, East River, or just around town; ferries stop throughout the strip.
Stretching the up the west side of Manhattan from the Parisian landscaped Battery Park Esplanade, to the boating and sunbathing decks of Midtown's Clinton Clove, Hudson River Park is home to hundreds of unusual park activities like free, laid-back billiards or adventurous boat rowing.
For the best outdoor eats (and incredible sunsets) head straight up the coast from the waterfront Financial Center, to the Chelsea Brewing Company at 20th St., to P.D. O'Hurley's on 44th, to Boat Basin at 79th, and Hudson Beach Cafe at 103rd.
You may not catch a wave in the city, but this park ensures you can do just about anything else.
One of the longest waterfront parks in America, perfect for bikes, blades or plain old walking. – In Short
The Hudson River Greenway is part of the evolving 550-acre Hudson River Park that stretches from Battery Park to 59th Street. It's a leisurely but crowded path filled with bikers, bladers and walkers. Past the park, the bike path continues up to the George Washington Bridge. The path provides a lovely, leisurely afternoon of cycling through Manhattan, with wonderful views of the Hudson to boot. Biking is also allowed on many of the piers.
Smooth ride – You can enjoy a scenic smooth ride along the Hudson River Parkway. The road is by far the best paved amongst the ones I've seen in NYC - perfect for bikers who want to enjoy the view without having to grunt for uphill battles.
