Very impressed! Lovely Greenway consisting of beautiful flowers, a mini Boardwalk, and walking/biking paths. Great views of the City, specifically the Freedom Tower. Scenic views of the Waterfront and even Jersey City, NJ looks good from here. Quick and scenic way to get to where...More

With friends, we are walking the periphery of Manhattan. Not all in one day, as some would try. But, five to seven miles at a time. What a delight. You see the city from a completely different and rewarding view. Much better walking than riding,...More
