(Kid Friendly Park)
Stretching 330 acres, from 62nd to 158th Streets, Riverside Park is one great stroll. Beautiful views, from the river to the houseboats at the harbor
Amazingly, some of our West Side friends hardly know it's there. They head blindly to Central Park, leaving Riverside uncrowded and under-utilized.
Hours: Daily, dawn to dusk
