Make this Sunday an active day outside soaking up the last rays of September sunshine. Begin the morning by testing out a Bugaboo Runner (or runner extension if you have your own) from the Babesta booth at Brookfield Place's Block Party, going on 11:30-4:30pm. Borrow-a-runner for a few hours and see downtown’s Hudson River Park attractions in a whole new light. With so many exciting nooks & crannies throughout lower Manhattan’s answer to Central Park, you might forget to keep running. The family friendly trail is chalk full of activities and sights, so we narrowed down the best spots south of Chelsea Piers.

Check out the street art on the lower right by French artist Space Invader. -->Anatole is a French mouse (the beret was the clincher) and the tee by Out of Print Books
