From the birthplace of New York City at Battery Park, this waterfront route travels past sculpted riverside green spots, harbor enclaves, and architectural marvels, and takes you northward to the West Harlem Piers at West 130th Street. It then climbs to the top of Riverside Drive, where you have sweeping views of the river below and can stop off at Grant’s Tomb, where Civil War general Ulysses S. Grant rests alongside his wife. The route then returns southward via the riverfront once more, hugging the waterfront along Battery Park City, and ending in Battery Park, where there’s much to explore.
