The Marshal

Every ingredient tells a story at The Marshal, a tiny brick-walled restaurant on Tenth Avenue.

Pier 84

Located at 44th Street and the Hudson River, Pier 84 is ideal for picnics and sunbathing, in addition to free kayaking and paddleboarding. 

Hudson River Greenway

The Hudson River Greenway is a 32 mile foreshoreway for walking, running, and cycling around Manhattan. If you're on two wheels, we suggest you ride north up to the George Washington Bridge. Once you've worked up a sweat, speed back on down to the delights of Battery Park, and once dusk hits, make sure you park your wheels safely in Charlie West's own storage unit.

57th Street Greenmarket

The 57th Street Greenmarket at Balsley Park provides the freshest seasonal produce in the neighborhood from a select number of local farmers. Find juicy fruit, fresh herbs, farm fresh eggs, cheese, and a variety of plants every Saturday from May 20 though December 23.
