Running Roosevelt Island

RUNemployed has written a great guide to running Roosevelt Island, if you’re looking for a new place in the city to run:

Roosevelt Island is that two mile long sliver of land, only 800 feet at its widest, that many of us have seen only while riding in a cab down the FDR Drive in Manhattan or while crossing the Queensboro Bridge. But with flat, paved paths running nearly the entire perimeter of the island, cool breezes off the river and almost no traffic, Roosevelt Island is a fantastic place to explore as a runner.

    For others who are also looking for a guide to places to run, check out “Fun on Foot in New York,” by Nola and Warwick Ford. It’s got all kinds of trails in the city and surrounding areas, even parts of upstate New York and regional NJ. The website even has supporting info on all the trails, plus downloadable maps. It, too, is a great resource.
