Outdoor Activities in NYC
New York City may be a concrete jungle, but even this urban metropolis has its green space. Lace up your sneakers for a day of fitness on themed running tours through neighborhoods to hear stories of immigrants, Bob Dylan, and other notable characters. Or loop around the Central Park Reservoir on an easy horseback ride, with stops along the banks to enjoy city views. For wheelchair-accessible and kid-friendly spots, visit the New York Botanical Garden for floral displays in the Lower East Side, or sit and people-watch (with gelato in hand) from a bench on the High Line, New York’s only elevated park.
