NYC over the past 10-20 years has really been focusing on making the city more pedestrian friendly. The most obvious is the closure of much of midtown Broadway to vehicles. But the most substantial is the walking and biking loop around all of Manhattan. There...More

This is a dedicated bike path but you will find that some people walk and run here. There is also a parallel foot path along the way that will join the bike path at times. Started at Pier 1 Café around W 70th St. and...More
