Morning Run

If you are looking for a perfect run in the morning you can’t beat the sight of the Statute of Liberty from Battery Park.

  • From the Bed-Stuy neighborhood over the Brooklyn Bridge and to Battery Park is 5.6 miles (10 mile roundtrip).

  • For a shorter route the tree lined streets of Brooklyn Heights also make a wonderful running route about 3 miles from Bed-Stuy (6 miles roundtrip).
