People might mistake New York for a mass of concrete and high rises, but it doesn’t take long to recognize the incredible array of NYC outdoor activities and outdoor events.
Central Park is the most obvious, as no place epitomizes the spirit of New York quite like this 843-acre swath of green that stretches from 59th Street to 110th Street, making it a much-needed and much-loved escape for the city’s overworked urbanites. Biking, jogging, rollerblading, and just lying in the grass are all perfect ways to spend time outdoors in NYC’s Central Park, but it’s hardly the only grassy expanse in the city to enjoy a plethora of outdoor activities.
Prospect Park in Brooklyn – designed by the same architects who created Central Park – is an equally popular getaway, and there’s also Brooklyn Bridge Park, Union Square, and Bryant Park, all of which provide ample space for any number of outdoor activities. Once just another abandoned and overgrown set of elevated railroad tracks, the High Line has been transformed into a garden-like oasis where patrons stroll down artfully slanted concrete planks, peruse the booths of local artists, and enjoy a peaceful atmosphere three stories above the city streets.
On the shopping front, SoHo is a dream come true for shopaholics, foodies, and art lovers alike, and offers up a versatile downtown neighborhood with an unending variety of shops, galleries, and restaurants. Times Square, of course, is a must just to walk down, and one of the busiest, most frenetic, and most visually stimulating urban centers in the world bursting with outdoor activities. The same can be said of the world-famous Rockefeller Center, a bustling nerve center that welcomes millions of local and foreign visitors every year with great shopping, farmers markets, and many signature New York outdoor events like the famous Christmas tree lighting in winter.
Spending time outdoors in New York City is a must practically any time of year, just be sure to dress for the occasion so you’ll never miss out on the endless outdoor activities in NYC.
