Greenway Bike Path
Waterfront Greenway is a 32-mile long walking and bicycling path
through the Hudson River Park, Battery Park, Brooklyn Bridge Park,
and Central Park. Hence its name. The views are fantastic.

Most of the rules about using New York's Greenways are pretty obvious.
One you might miss is locking your bicycle to a tree. Don't. It
is harmful to the tree. It is also potentially damaging to you finances.

New York Pass grants you a free half-day bike rental
