Riverside Park walkways, bike paths, piers and even cafes are a great place to watch the sunset, relax and enjoy the glory of nature just a short walk from New York's busy streets.

Riverside Park is narrow but grand. You can get right next to the water around 100th street, feel a breeze and forget you're in NYC. There are also nice clay tennis courts at 96th street and asphalt courts at 125th St.

You've seen portions of the park in films like "You've Got Mail" but walking it, breathing in the air of the Hudson River and the flower beds is better. Also watch locals sun bathe or walk their dogs. Squirrels will beg.

Nice riverfront park, with plenty to do, or not. Just being there, away from the hustle and bustle of Manhattan is a relaxing experience. It makes you forget for a moment you are still in New York City.
