I headed to the West Side Highway and its stretch of green riverside (officially known as Hudson River Park), and walked along the water. This long stretch of park along the river varies in character. You can find peaceful, quiet spots (like above 23rd street or down near the Canal entrance) or envelop yourself in the crowd and join the wash of people passing by: intense urban joggers, smartly dressed commuters on their bikes, mothers and nannies pushing strollers, gay city teenagers, homeless wanderers. If I were a tourist, this may be a key experience to understanding the city.
