When is it good weather for the activity: Jogging in Central Park, NY?
Jogging

All kinds of New Yorkers jog, some with dogs or babies in tow, so you'll always have company on the regular jogging routes. What's not recommended is to set out on a lonely park path at dusk. Jog when and where everybody else does. On Manhattan streets, roughly 20 north-south blocks make a mile.

In Manhattan, Central Park is the busiest spot, specifically along the 1.6-mi path circling the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir, where you jog in a counterclockwise direction. A runners' lane has been designated along the park roads. A good 1.75-mi route starts at the former Tavern on the Green (now closed) along the West Drive, heads south around the bottom of the park to the East Drive, and circles back west on the 72nd Street park road to your starting point; the entire loop road is a hilly 6 mi. Riverside Park, along the Hudson River bank in Manhattan, is glorious at sunset. You can cover 4.5 mi by running from West 72nd to 116th Street and back, and the Greenbelt trail extends 4 more mi north to the George Washington Bridge at 181st Street. Other favorite Manhattan circuits are the Battery Park City esplanade (about 2 mi), which connects to the Hudson River Park (about 1.5 mi), and the East River Esplanade (just over 3 mi from East 63rd to East 125th streets).

1 Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir
Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir

New York, NY

This 106-acre body of water was built in 1862 to provide fresh water to Manhattan residents. Although it still contains 1 billion gallons, it's no longer used for drinking water—the city's main reservoirs are upstate. A 1.58-mi cinder path circling the lake is popular with runners year-round. Please observe local traffic rules and travel counterclockwise. Even if you're not training for the New York City Marathon, it's worth visiting the reservoir for a 360-degree view of surrounding high-rises, which makes for stirring sunsets. In spring and fall the hundreds of trees around the reservoir burst into color, and migrant waterfowl are plentiful. Just remember to look out for the athletes, as they have the right of way. The reservoir was officially named the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir in 1994 for the former first lady, who frequently jogged in the area and lived nearby.
