|The essential guide for New York City
region runners and walkers
Jersey Side of the Hudson
Upstate New York Cities
The Jersey Shore
Where should New Yorkers or visitors to the city run? In the local park or
on the local trail near home? Sure. But there is an enormous amount to
be gained by extending your horizons beyond that.
Everyone knows about Central Park and its excellent running trails. But
that is only a start. There are many more great, stimulating running trails
in Manhattan, the other NYC boroughs, and the surrounding region.
I live a few short blocks from Central Park and am a keen runner. So, no
surprise, I run often in the park. However, I also run in many other
places. I find that running in different places stimulates me to get out
more and run further. My wife Nola is that way too. If I propose a
weekend run together in a place we don't frequent regularly, I'll find her
much more willing to join me than if I suggest a loop or two of Central
For example, there is an excellent trail along the length of Manhattan on
the Hudson bank. There are several exciting runs involving multiple
crossings of the East River between Manhattan and Brooklyn and/or
Queens. There are some excellent trails along the New Jersey side of
the Hudson and in the Bronx. And there are many beautiful trail
segments in Brooklyn and in Queens which can be linked up to form
exciting long runs. Even less known are the scenic trails along the ocean
shore and in the green belt of Staten Island. And what makes all these
trails so exciting is that they can all be reached easily via the NYC public
Nola and I wrote the book "Fun on Foot in New York" to help New Yorkers
and city visitors find all these exciting trails (plus many more) and enjoy
them without the stresses of being unsure what to expect. The book is as
much for the serious athlete in training as for the casual exerciser.
We don't stop at the City boundary either. The running trails are so
good in Westchester County, and on Long Island in Nassau and Suffolk
counties, every runner or walker should have a handy guide to these
trails and get there on any opportunity presented. We even throw in
some of the top notch trails in more remote places in Upstate New York
and throughout New Jersey.
We cover over 80 routes in all. We provide over 90 hand-crafted route
maps, including details of everything important to runners or walkers
including mileages, rest rooms, public transit access, water fountains,
attractions, and good food or beverage places to end your outing.
We have checked all details personally and, when in doubt, confirmed
details with members of the local running community. The book includes
introductions to over 70 local running clubs.
We firmly believe that running or walking routes should be
enjoyable if we are to get outdoors more. For the New York City region
we believe we have nailed down the routes that are definitely the most
If you buy this book and are not satisfied, you can return it at
