Lonely Planet review

A classic beauty designed by Central Park creators Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux, this waterside spot, running north on the Upper West Side and banked by the Hudson River from 59th to 158th Sts, is lusciously leafy. Plenty of bike paths and playgrounds make it a family favorite.

From late March through October (weather permitting), a lively waterside restaurant, the West 79th Street Boat Basin Café serves a light menu at the level of 79th St. Two other outdoor cafes in the riverfront in the park include the Hudson Beach Café off 105th St and the Pier i Café at 70th St.
