Pier 84, Hudson River Park at West 44th Street

Just blocks from bustling Times Square, Pier 84 was opened to the public in October 2006 and is one of the west side’s largest and busiest piers.  Panoramic views from the Pier stretch up, down and across the Hudson and back to the city skyline.

Mackay Park, Englewood, New Jersey

For the first time, this Avon Walk crosses state lines with a quick dip into the Garden State.  Mackay Park is just steps from the George Washington Bridge in the quaint and leafy village of Englewood.

If you’re still sleepy when you start on Saturday, you’ll wake up soon with a  high-energy stroll through Times Square and the Theatre District before turning south through the heart of Manhattan.  You’ll walk past and through many of the city’s most notable landmarks and neighborhoods before leaving the hustle and bustle for a visit to peaceful Brooklyn Heights.  Heading back to the Island, it’s water views for miles while you travel up the west side and inland, then head toward the George Washington Bridge, where on a clear day you can see almost 20 miles up the Hudson River. Sunday’s route brings you back to Manhattan for our traditional visit to the Little Red Lighthouse under the Bridge, then back down the Hudson River path to your heroes’ welcome at Pier 84.
