The purpose of New York Running Routes is simple. Compile quality running routes in the New York City area. We can all take a map and mark out a running route using major roads, and often that seems to be the case when you search for a route on any of a number of Google.map-inspired sites. The criteria here are different. These are routes that one wouldn’t think of in pulling out a map. In particular, the objective is to find quality routes that are off main roads as much as possible and practical.
In the winter especially when parks can be off-limits for extended periods and large amounts of snow may be on the ground, these routes I hope will provide viable alternatives.
This has never gotten traction, but as with the trail and track sites, it could be a useful database. Take a look.
