In an effort to beautify Manhattan’s west side, Mayor Rudolph Giuliani and Governor George Pataki began construction on the Hudson River Park in 1998. The project was the largest park building effort since Central Park, and the 550-acre area now serves a multitude of purposes. The waterside walkway, extending from W. 59th St. to Battery Park, boasts a 5-mile bike path, tennis courts, soccer fields, batting cages, playgrounds and Chelsea Piers. A number of grassy spaces provide space for lounging and soaking in the view across the river.
