Where New York - - Maps -

Lo­cal in­flu­encers weigh in on where to feed their ob­ses­sion with nat­u­ral world pur­suits this month. Read why our parks are beloved (so much so, we have two dif­fer­ent peo­ple rav­ing about Cen­tral Park), what’s fun about a trip to a farmer’s market and more.

Van Cort­landt Park

I take my dogs on long runs in this Bronx park: It’s per­fect for that. –Jeremy Ly­man, co-founder, Birch Cof­fee

Cen­tral Park

I get a cof­fee and just peo­ple-watch. –Josh Groban, singer, ac­tor

Bryant Park

It’s such a friendly place, and they have free ac­tiv­i­ties, from ping-pong to jug­gling lessons to ice-skat­ing! –Ai­dan Gemme, ac­tor, “To­mor­row­land,““Dora the Ex­plorer”

Wash­ing­ton Square Park

Spend an hour here: You’ll have sto­ries to tell. –Ari­anna Huff­in­g­ton, pub­lisher, syn­di­cated colum­nist

Union Square Market

I like to go here, chat with farm­ers and see what’s new and fresh. –Syl­vain Delpique, chef, ‘21’ Club

Cen­tral Park

You’re in NYC, for good­ness sake! Walk around Cen­tral Park—all of it! You will see out­door yoga classes, peo­ple on a bench that prob­a­bly met on Tin­der, and one of my fa­vorites: sin­gle dads with three scream­ing chil­dren. –Kathy Grif­fin, co­me­dian
