Foursquare Tips

  • Discarded umbrellas are assembled into a 24ft diameter spherical dome which floats on the water as a revelation of the citys accumulated waterborne debris. See Harvest Dome 2.0 until Aug 31, 2013
  • Check out some of the best bird watching in NYC here at Inwood Hill Park, the last remaining natural forest in Manhattan.
  • Fall Foliage: Witness the changing colors of the leaves while trailing through the last remaining, naturally occurring, native hardwood (oakhickory) forest on the Manhattan Island.
  • The dense foliage and beautiful sky-high treeswhich rise to a height of more than 100 feet and create a full canopymake it easy to forget youre still in the 212 area code.
  • If you come before 430, you can paddle a canoe for free. I hear there's lots of untouched nature here also.
  • Pedal, run or walk here along the Hudson or via the last two stops on the A train. The hiking trails are so quiet you almost forget youre in the city.
  • Places to Run: Opt for expansive views of the Hudson River, New Jersey and the Bronx, while running along the sprawling waterfront of this 192-acre park, in the northern section of Manhattan.
  • Is this still in New York? Those hills and green spaces will have you asking repeatedly. Great for kids and dogs. Team sports have their designated spaces so roam. The nabe youth may pounce w/o notice
  • Those sparkly slabs of stone on the hiking trails are garnet and mica encrusted Manhattan schist, bedrock on which the NYC skyscrapers rest.
  • A hidden treasure thats overshadowed by the nearby Cloistersbut once you get up here, youll enjoy glorious views of the Hudson River while lazing in the grass.
  • I think this is where Jesus hides before he lets other people 'find him'.
  • Visit the old caves used by Lenape Native Americans up through the 17th Century
  • look for eagles sitting in the trees along the trails high up on the hill.
  • Lots of homeless men in the south end. Beware and don't go alone.
  • Walk through a forest grove of tulip trees, oaks, and maples on a historic trail that leads to where the parks oldest trees two Cottonwoods planted before the park was established still live
  • Want to get a feeling for what Manhattan was like in her natural state? On the park's website, they offer cool nature/historic tours - they even host Shakespearean plays in the summer.
  • Great Natural Park at the tip on Manhattan
  • Check out the only salt marsh in Manhattan.
  • Love the Indian caves and walking off the regular trails into overgrown areas of the park.
  • Nice wooded park great for a walk around.
