Take a break from the city bustle while watching ferries, boats, and people go by at East River Waterfront Esplanade. Sleek, gritty, and urban at the same time, this last part of the Manhattan Greenway--the 51 km (32 mi) bike route around the island--stretches between Battery Park and Montgomery Street. Go for a walk, take your four-legged friend for a run, or take a seat at one of the welcoming wood and metal benches facing the water or the city.
