8 mile training walk along the Hudson River

August 14, 2010

It was one of those rare mid-August days, beautiful  for an 8 mile training walk with temperatures in the low 80’s and low humidity.  The Avon Walk staff organized the walk today in New York City.  It went almost the entire distance of Hudson River Park, starting at Pier 95 (55th Street) and following the Hudson River down to Chambers Street and back again.

Hudson River Park is the largest park to undergo construction in Manhattan since Central Park was created, and includes beautiful public piers, a waterside esplanade, and limited commercial activities at several sites. Consisting of a 550-acre riverside park and estuarine sanctuary, it is located on the west side of Manhattan between Battery Place and W est 59th Street.

The park has amazing flower beds. There is a bike and walking path which was very crowded today, despite starting out at 7:30 am.  At the south end of the park, one has a grand view of Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty.
