The Peninsula New York is located just four blocks from the best place to jog in Manhattan: Central Park. The Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel provides a map of the park with jogging routes in the desk of your guestroom, so be sure to look for it. Everyone from casual joggers to more serious athletes will find a jogging path in the park, which at 843 acres is Manhattan’s largest green space.
Many people use Central Park to train for the New York City Marathon because it has paths of varying lengths and is open year-round (it only closes in the early morning from 1 to 6 a.m.). The path around Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir runs about 1.5 miles, while the loop around the whole park is about six miles, so you can mix up the trails depending on the kind of workout you want.
