The 5 Best Places Run Naked In New York City
In the bustling city filled with millions of people, there's no shortage of amazing places to run Naked. With our large following in New York City, we compiled some of the best spots to #runfree in the concrete jungle.
1. Prospect Park
Prospect Park is an urban park in Brooklyn, New York. The park is situated between the neighborhoods of Park Slope, Prospect Heights, Prospect Lefferts Gardens, Flatbush, and Windsor Terrace. Adjacent to the Brooklyn Museum, Grand Army Plaza, and the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. Prospect Park offers miles of roadways and paths for serious and recreational runners. A 3.36-mile running lane is provided along Park Drive. Several track clubs run in the park, including the Prospect Park Track Club.
2. Brooklyn Bridge
The Brooklyn Bridge is a hybrid cable-stayed/suspension bridge in New York City, spanning the East River between Manhattan Island and Brooklyn. At just over a mile long you can have a great run across the bridge with a scenic view. Beware, it can be busy at peak hours of the day. We recommend an epic run early at sunrise or later around sunset.
3. Brooklyn Bridge Park
Brooklyn Bridge Park is an 85-acre park on the Brooklyn side of the East River in New York City. You can plan your own 5k run by running from Pier 6 to Pier 1 and back. It's a beautiful park with incredible views of the Brooklyn Bridge and downtown Manhattan.
4. Riverside Park and the Hudson River Greenway
The Hudson River Greenway (HRG) is one of the most popular places to ride, walk, and jog in New York City. It makes up part of the Manhattan Waterfront Greenway loop, the cross-state Empire State Trail, and the multistate East Coast Greenway. The greenway is separated from traffic and runs through a series of parks along the Hudson River and the west side of Manhattan, offering beautiful views of the water and skyline along its two-lane, 12.9-mile paved path.
5. Central Park
Last but certainly not least, Central Park. Central Park is New York's backyard... The park is home to scenic hills, meadows, playgrounds, skating rinks, ball fields and many well-known attractions, including Strawberry Fields, Belvedere Castle, and the Central Park Zoo. The park is huge! We recommend bringing plenty of hydration and carrying your phone with you for map help. Our Naked Vest and Running Band will keep you covered for a long run in this fortress of a park.
