lol, I know a weird question but I have some friends coming into the city on Saturday for the theater. The weather is going to be lovely (fingers crossed) and they wanted to come in early and just stroll around before heading to dinner and show.

Any suggestions? lol, all I could come up with is the High line.

TIA

I like to take visitors on a stroll from Madison Square to Union Square to Washington Square. Lots of nice buildings and interesting things to see along the way. Then I usually turn towards the West Village and, if willing to tolerate the crowds (rarely), head back north on the High Line.

This is usually where I go too. I like Central Park near Columbus Circle up to The Dakota.

I like Riverside Park. Not as crowded or crazy like Central Park at least when I was there (late afternoons). It's by the water, lots of benches, you can watch the sunset & people strolling about, running or biking. There are public restrooms. Nice and clean for the most part. It's really nice. I used to go quite often but haven't been there as of late. No time.

Agree about Riverside Drive being fantastic. I'd also go for a stroll up by the Cloisters. That area has some great views by Fort Tyron Park.
