Manhattan by Sail: It’s easy to forget Manhattan is an island. Check out Manhattan by Sail for a breezy cruise. Board the historic 820foot Shearwater schooner and float around Manhattan’s harbor taking in views of the buildings and, of course, the foliage.

Governors Island: I can’t say enough times how amazing Governors Island is. With a long promenade to take an afternoon stroll amongst the leaves and it being so close to Manhattan it really is a great get-away to frolic and see some foliage.
Fort Tyron Park: This gorgeous park overlooks the Hudson River and is one of the highest natural points in Manhattan. Check out beautiful views of the Hudson, The George Washington Bridge and New Jersey Palisades. Also you can go check out the Cloisters Museum and Gardens, which will transport you to another time.
