It's hilly but you get a nice view from the top. There are several ways to ascend. All of them slightly sketchy. I always feel like I've accomplished something when I get to the top and haven't been mugged.

Fort Tryon Park was a very peaceful, and quiet place. The park also has a museum inside of it that is part of the met, the cloisters. In fort tryon park there is plenty of space to run around. I think you should go there.

This park is beautiful for many reasons. Whether checking out the beautiful foliage, having a picnic or just people watching...you will surely enjoy your time in this beautiful open space. The windy paths hold a surprise at every turn...all picture worthy.

This park is absolutely beautiful. I felt like I was cheating on my favorite park, Central Park, but I’m sure it will understand. The grounds are pristine and well thought out. The layout is conducive to expiration and fun trails seem to just litter the...More

Nice little park with a good view on the Hudson River and the Hudson Bridge. We came because we wanted to visit the Cloisters. It's nice and calm, but a bit off the path. If you want to go, take the metro, it's long, but...More

I used to cycle there a lot. There is a long wonderful expanse of parkland at Riverside, but that especial location is very atmospheric. There is the Cloisters building which shows through the trees high on the hill. They really loved the old heavy red...More

Ft. Lee, NJ, just across the George Washington Bridge, for those with cars. Airbnb in the neighborhood may be a better bet for those without.
