Walks around NYC?

I’m coming to NYC in the fall and would love some ideas about where to just take a nice, leisurely walk (I live in L.A. where it’s almost impossible to walk anywhere). I’d like to get away from the crowds if possible. Thanks!

    · Museum Mile – on 5th ave around 100thstreet or so. Generally a little less populated than the rest of 5thave. You can either walk on the east side of the street which is mostly museumsand residential buildings or even cross over to the Central Park side on thewest. Depending on when you’ll be there the trees should be beautiful. You canalso go into Central Park up there and walk south within the park. That area ofthe park is usually much less crowded than say, the area by the skating rink orSheep Meadow. There’s a gorgeous garden called the Conservatory that’sbeautiful no matter what time of year you go.

    · The High Line— basically a garden/park/walkwayconstructed on the tracks of a no-longer-in-service train route. It’s so prettyand the perfect place for a stroll.

    · Brooklyn Heights Promenade—great views of the cityand a really charming walk.

    · Westernmost part of the Village. Maybe HudsonStreet or Greenwich. The vibe is very low-key and even during Christmastimeit’s never mobbed. Lots of interesting architecture there, too.
