There is a wonderful viewing platform in the park showing the construction of the new Tappen Zee Bridge. Easy access with several informational panels, including a spotter's guide for construction equipment and vessels and viewing scopes for close up views. You can also find a webcam for daily progress at NewNYBridge.com Magical engineering.

Beautiful cruise would definitely recommend. Tour guides full of interesting facts! Had a lovely warm still evening to go on the cruise, be careful not to drop your cameras in the water!

I visited the Hudson River this Saturday - it is 315 miles from the Adirondack mountains to the Atlantic Ocean - so I didn't get to see all of it. The views from the west side of Manhattan are beautiful and I have been on three boat rides this year - simply stunning!

I enjoyed the walk to the Hudson River, we walked via the West Village which is a part of New York id love to live in! The Hudson River has amazing views of the skyline and is definitely worth the visit

We walked along the Hudson today from near the ground zero site up to near Greenwich village. It was a beautiful day and lovely and quiet along the river. Really recommend for a short break from the city centre

Loved this trip... Not quite as wow as the helicopter ride but still a must trip whilst your in New York! We saw Brooklyn and the bridges and then onto the Statue of Liberty and then up past the New World Trade Centre and views of Manhattan and New Jersey!

Great walk, run or bike along the river. Lots of green spaces, spots to stop and relax and great views. Oportunities to kayak on the river for free during the summer, and stepping off point for New York water taxi service.

Go west in Manhattan until you find the Hudson River. You will find a loooong path to run or to bike. In addition there are some small parks with artificial grass where you can stretch or practice yoga with an amazing view of the river. You can also go in the sunset in the summer, because of the high temperatures.... More

We ventured on the Hudson River Cruise recently and albeit a little disorganised at the outset did we not get a surprise by what this was all about.Having travelled a fair bit in my time I was expecting the serene cruise up and down the river with a bit of sightseeing but prior to setting off the host for the...

To fully appreciate Manhattan Island, take the Boat Tour. It lasts about 3 hours with snacks & drinks available, with full commentary from an experienced guide. See Statue of Liberty, Staten Island, Lower Harlem, United Nations etc etc.
