Harlem Hops, located on between 133rd and 134th streets on Adam Clayton Powell Avenue is a must visit beer hall if you are uptown Manhattan.
The beer hall has feels roomy with plenty of seats and space to stand and hangout with friends. Harlem Hops also has a backyard patio with a few chairs and tables if you want to take advantage of nice weather.

The former New York and Putnam railroad has been reborn into a nicely paved pathway that is ideal for distance workouts. I use the trail for bike rides but LSD (long slow distance) day runs would also work.
I split the workout into 3 segments (with one additional option to get home.)
