This tour is perfect for runners who want to see it all! We’ll start by crossing the historic Queensboro Bridge into Queens, where we’ll visit the newly revitalized Long Island City waterfront and leave plenty of time for photos of Manhattan’s skyline. We’ll then explore the Greenpoint and Williamsburg neighborhoods of Brooklyn, including Domino Park, before crossing back into Manhattan over the Williamsburg Bridge. You’ll learn about the rich history of immigration and the Lower East before we visit Washington Square Park. We’ll finish the tour by running up 5th Avenue, passing the Flatiron Building, Madison Square Park, and the many luxury stores that make the street so iconic.
New York’s waterfront is my favorite place to run. The parks are a great example of the green spaces the New Yorkers enjoy, and the bridges have some of the best views that the city has to offer. I can’t wait to share this tour with you!
