It has become somewhat of an annual pilgrimage up to Sleepy Hollow Cemetery on Halloween. And just 25 miles north of the city, it’s an easy morning or afternoon activity. Also, since New Yorker’s love Halloween, you can make this trip and still be back into the city by the evening for ghoulish (i.e drunken debaucherous) pursuits.
Wanting to escape city living, at least for a couple hours on the weekend can be pretty straightforward in New York.
Case in point, Croton Gorge Park is 40 miles north of Manhattan (if you have a car) or you can take the Metro North Train to the Croton on Hudson stop. Note: if you take the train you will then need to take a car service for the remaining 2.5 miles to the park (and remember this because I will revisit it later.)
I spent half a weekend afternoon in Queens eating, drinking (coffee) and snapping pics along the way. I think I have a great 2 stop trip in the borough the next time you have friends and family in town.
In the city that never sleeps, there is a 200 acres oasis that sits right at the top of Manhattan: Inwood Hill Park.
This is the BEST stair workout in all of Manhattan.

Picture a path in the city that is both scenic and not congested with tourists and residents. A place like this exists on the Hudson River Greenway if you start at 125th street in Manhattan and head north.
You can access the path right off the 1 train at the 125th street subway stop. Walk a few minutes west past Dinosaur BBQ and Fairway Grocery store and you will be met with a panoramic view of the Hudson River and New Jersey.
