When you stay at The St. Regis New York, be sure to take full advantage of the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel’s proximity to Manhattan’s largest green space, Central Park. The New York hotel is just four blocks from the southeast end of the park, which is a great place to go for a jog. Central Park is open year-round, but closes in the early morning from 1 to 6 a.m.
With 843 acres of space, Central Park offers several running routes of varying lengths for everyone from casual joggers to more serious athletes — in fact, many people use the park to train for the New York City Marathon. The path around Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir runs about 1.5 miles, the Great Lawn path about half a mile and the loop around the whole park about 6 miles. Runners who want to plot an exact course can also download a map from Central Park’s website that outlines suggested routes.
