Runner's City Guide: NYC – Feetures

Runner's City Guide: NYC

♪ In New York ♪ you should be running! With the annual New York Marathon coming up just around the corner, we wanted to give a guide for all the places to run, eat, and hang out while you're there - whether it’s marathon weekend or any other day you’re running through the 6 boroughs


Central Park - With paths over both hilly and flat routes, you can get the best of everything in Central Park. The iconic park offers many different routes, some going around the entire park's edges and others offering a short and sweet run. With amazing scenery (particularly with the changing of seasons), you can't go wrong no matter which route you choose.
Running Necessity - A Bundle with colors to match all your New York outfits
Where To Get Gear (that you forgot to pack) - With so many great retailers in the area, check out our store locator for the one nearest you. A safe bet is always Fleet Feet Columbus Circle!


Carbone - This is famous for a reason - it's the best! Stop by for some of the best old school Italian you can get (no matter where you're traveling from).

Gramercy Park Tavern - Started by a famous restauranter, the food is not only top tier, but the decor around the holidays is certainly photo worthy. 

Bluestone Lane Dumbo - This Australian inspired cafe has multiple spots throughout the city. It features a menu with craft coffees, cocktails, and great small bites. Make sure to stop by to kick off your busy day in the city. 

Carmine - A great spot that you can slip into almost any time - even without a reservation! Our recommendation? Try their Ravioli with red meat sauce!

Museum of Modern Art - Bringing art into the modern world, this infamous museum is renowned for a reason. Always introducing new exhibits, this never gets old!

Soho - Hop around all the fantastic SoHo stores and shop till you drop. Ranging from e-commerce pop up stores to any designer you can think of, there will a little something for everything. 

Time Square - Soak in the fanfare of Times Square! From street performers to monuments, you'll truly experience the city that never sleeps. 

There's no way to cover all the amazing things in New York City, but chime in and tell us what we missed!
