6. Black Friday Hike
Staten Island Greenbelt
There is no shortage of opportunities to walk off your Thanksgiving day dinner in New York City’s parks. The New York City Parks Department will host Black Friday hikes all over the city, from the Greenbelt of Staten Island to Prospect Park in Brooklyn. Urban Park Rangers will lead hikers on a variety of hikes through scenic sites like Central Park from Doris Freedman Plaza to the Harlem Meer, past waterfalls and wetlands in the Northwest Woods of Van Cortlandt Park in the Bronx, and to The Alley Giant in Queens, a tulip tree that is the tallest and oldest living organism in the city.
