Most Beautiful Running Routes in New York

Most Beautiful Running Routes in New York by Jody Kriss

New York gets a reputation for dirty streets, aggressive drivers and a lack of personal space (from both pigeons and fellow humans). Despite all this, the city also features some of the best places for a long run or leisurely walk. Even when you’re mid-distance run, the picturesque scenes can distract your mind and lessen the burning in your calves.

Through my own running experience and exploring the city for real estate purposes, I’ve found some of the best locations for exercise enthusiasts to hit the pavement.

Central Park (Reservoir Loop)

When someone thinks of a good place to run in New York, Central Park is inevitably the first thing that comes to mind. Any part of the park is great for a morning or evening workout, but the rolling hills can provide a challenge for some runners. If you’re looking for a flat route with a beautiful view of the reservoir, I’d recommend taking Central Park’s 1.58-mile loop around the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir. One important note: cyclists aren’t permitted on the loop.

Prospect Park

At 3.68 miles, the outer loop of Prospect Park is almost half the length of Central Park’s full loop. However, it has similar terrain. The park has the perfect mix of nature scenes and city backdrop. You’ll also come across the Prospect Park Lake and a host of recreational activities. After your workout, you can grab a meal or check out some of the local shopping.

Brooklyn Bridge

If you’re up for an early-morning weekday run, the Brooklyn Bridge offers a beautiful view. It’s common for people to run over the Brooklyn Bridge and into Brooklyn Bridge Park. Throughout the trip, you’ll have views of the bridge’s historic architecture, as well as some waterfront views of lower Manhattan. Just try to avoid the bridge during weekends because it is much more crowded.

East River Running Path

If you begin at Battery Park at the tip of Manhattan, you’ll have the perfect opportunity to make the most of the East River running path. In addition to catching a glimpse of the Statue of Liberty, you’ll also have gorgeous views of Brooklyn’s waterfront and the South Street Seaport. This path also offers easy access to Brooklyn.

Every New York runner has their own favorite running paths throughout the city, but I hope these locations give you some inspiration for changing up your workout. The city is full of incredible running routes for anyone who takes the time to go out and explore them.

Anyone in real estate knows the power of networking. When you have strong connections with other businesses and professionals in your area, it can cultivate a mutually beneficial relationship.

In New York City, there are a few networking events in September that could be the perfect opportunity for you to meet new people or reconnect with old acquaintances.

4th Annual Brooklyn, Queens Forum

In terms of real estate development and investment, Brooklyn and Queens have come a long way in the past 10 years. This forum is designed to keep you in the loop so you know what could be next for these constantly evolving boroughs.

With 13 speakers, an expert panel will explore all different aspects of Brooklyn and Queens. Which neighborhoods are poised for future growth?

The event runs from 7:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. on September 13th, and includes a networking breakfast, a Brooklyn panel and a Queens panel. If you can make time in your busy schedule for this event, I would recommend it. From what I’ve heard, it is a great way to connect with other industry professionals while expanding your knowledge on relevant topics.

This event is recommended for beginner and intermediate real estate investors.

You’re encouraged to wear business professional attire and bring your business cards. The event is at Stout NYC on West 33rd Street from 7 p.m. – 9 p.m. on September 18th.

There are different networking events for all the various aspects of real estate. If these options don’t suit your needs, there are still dozens of other events you can find before the end of 2018.
