Over the last few years, the city has really made this few mile stretch so beautiful to run on. If I'm doing a long run, I'll run the perimeter of the island from east to west side. 60 Chelsea Piers NYC 10011.
When I take a break from my long run (I tend to take several!) I love to walk along the Highline, which gives you beautiful art, views, and plants.
Runs from Gansevoort Street in the Meatpacking District to West 34th Street, between 10th and 12th Avenues, NYC.
