8. Take a Scenic Walk

Staten Island Greenbelt

Enjoy the last days of warmish weather in New York City with a scenic Black Friday Walk hosted by the NYC Parks Department. Led by an Urban Park Ranger, these walks will take hikers through some of the city’s most bucolic settings, in parks throughout the five boroughs. Catch the last bit of foliage in along the Staten Island Greenbelt on the White Trail, visit the Alley Pond Giant (a massive Tulip Tree that is the oldest and tallest in New York City), or walk through the wetlands of the Northwest Woods in the Bronx. Check the NYC Parks Department website for times and meeting locations for these free guided hikes!
