From the southern tip of Manhattan extending into New York Harbor to Inwood Hill Park (home to some of the few stands of original growth forest in Manhattan) at its northern end, the east side of the Manhattan is lined with waterfront promenades as well as paths for cyclists and joggers. Views at the lower (that is, southern end) of Manhattan include the landmarks of New York Harbor—the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island—while you can gaze out at the undeveloped Palisades of New Jersey on the other side of the Hudson as you travel north. The opportunities to get some exercise extend into the water as well. Paddle boarding, kayaking, sailing, and boat-building are some of the many activities offered by the Hudson River Park.
