I recently spent some time in two of Manhattan's most recognized and renowned parks: Central Park and Riverside Park. Each has its own unique personality.
Central Park is bustling with people year round, rain or shine: runners and bikers; city dwellers and tourists; pedicabs and horse-drawn carriages. It's a beautiful place that's centrally located in the middle of the island, and many consider it the city's backyard.
Riverside Park spans the Upper West Side of Manhattan and is off the beaten path for tourists and New Yorkers alike. The majority of the park is calm and quiet, perfect for a run or stroll. It's one of my favorite places in the city.
