WHAT THEHEEBEE SAYS ABOUT HUDSON RIVER GREENWAY I stayed at Newyork for a week in February - 2019. I would say that I was blessed to have my hotel at a walking distance from Hudson River Waterfront Greenway. It was my daily ritual to walk from Pier 40 to Battery Park and back. I used to tease myself that daily evening I walk so much for my daily date with the Lady Liberty. I used to walk and then reach Battery Park and spend some time watching all the wonders of mother nature. Hudson River Waterfront Greenway is that amazing place where one can spend that precious 'me time' with one's own self and with the mother nature. The walkway is constructed very nicely with many options to sit, jog, play, cycle and grab something to eat. One can spend time here watching the river, boats, joggers, cyclists, small children having fun and the adorable pets who enjoy the time with their masters. The walkway is beautiful without any obstacles. Parks are enjoyable. The playgrounds are well maintained. The adjoining restaurants offer good food. The best is the amazing view it gives of New Jersey both during the day and at night. Signing Off Hiral Amodia (TheHeeBee)

This place is so beautiful. My two teenagers and I cycled around here among many many others. We enjoyed it so much and it's nice to see we weren't the only ones cycling too.

the hudson river greenway is a beautiful park that stretches from the southern tip of the island up to the George Washington Bridge. On a nice day its a great way to embrace the island itself and its surroundings. You can relax in Battery Park City, sit and chill on a number of rebuilt piers, grab some food at spots along the way, even get a great drink on a former lightship now moored by 26 street. There's also Chelsea Piers, the Circle Line, the Intrepid etc... One serious word to the wise. the greenway bike path is perilous on weekends.. bike racers, tourists riding tandem, rollerbladers, parents with kids on little bikes all crowd here. at some points one crosses cruise ship tourists, joggers, walkers etc... it is VERY EASY TO GET HURT... REPEAT.. GET HURT... if riding a bike stay right and beware racers who will run you down. beware e-bikes as well... few are wearing helmets which can turn a peaceful ride into a near death craniotomy. then again, that will give you a chance to visit the level trauma center at Bellevue .... so beware..... keep your eyes open and your head up... and wear a helmet. which the tourists guys don't require....I've seen lots of bad accidents, and folks carted away by ambulance... be sharp, be safe, be protected... this is New York at its best and worst.

We loved the greenway. If you are visiting the city, rent a bike for the day at Central Park Bike Rental and head to the waterfront. It offers beautiful views of Manhattan and New Jersey, bridges, piers, parks and attractions. Food and drinks is limited, so take something with you.

I've spent hours many times walking (or bicycling) the Greenway. If you start at Battery Park you have a beautiful view of the Statue of Liberty, a national park museum about Ellis Island and there are often street dancers performing, lots of fun and wonderful history! If you feel like going far, especially if you have a bike, you can go all the way around the tip and then come up by the Freedom Tower (it will be on your right) and the 9-11 memorial. There are healthy alternatives in the mall there, or you can get a great burger and shake at Shake Shack. For less walking, start at the 911 memorial .There's a great free park for the kids, even a little mini golf spot, as you walk up the Hudson on the Greenway maybe 1/4 mile past the Freedom Tower. Great free splash park in the summer. Any way you go, you'll have some great hours of seeing so much beauty and it need not cost a dime.
