Activities such as the kayaking on the West side of Manhattan makes me appreciate this city even more. Downtown Boathouse is generously renting kayaks at NO cost in three locations: Pier 40, Pier 96 and West 72nd Street on Hudson River. They provide pretty much all you need for a nice stroll on the river: 40 kayaks, life jackets, lockers, and instructions. All you have to do is sign a waiver, and prepare for a great ride. Boathouse’s activities are made possible by a team of diligent volunteers and public donations, so free to get on board.
Tip: There is nothing more beautiful than kayaking just before sunset.
How can we not love New York City?
