Looking for something to do?
Go to the Ravine in the northern end of Central Park. One of Morristown’s most desirable characteristics is its proximity to New York City, thus allowing Morristown residents to easily travel to the Ravine, either by car or train.
Even in New York City, you can still escape the fast paced lifestyle and go on a peaceful hike where the sound of city life is nothing but a faint noise in the distance. Enjoy some fresh air while listening to the beautiful sound of a waterfall. Perhaps you can even bring a blanket and some food and make a picnic out of it. Or you can just sit on a big rock by the waterfall and let the time pass by. The possibilities are endless! Experience the beauty of Central Park while we are in the peak of the fall foliage.
You can get to the ravine from midtown by taking the A, B, C, or D train to 96th street or 103rd street and walk east bound into the woods of northern central park. If you are feeling adventurous, you can always start from the south end of Central Park at 59th street and work your way up into the secluded north end where you will find the ravine. Enjoy a pleasant hike and clear your mind after a hard day’s work. You can even go for a swim if the we continue to experience these warm days in October! Just be sure to bring a towel and a change of cloths. Even bring your fishing pole and try to catch some fish. The possibilities are endless, so make the most of your experience! When you are satisfied with your stay, head east or west to catch one of the trains heading downtown. If you want to find yourself in Harlem, walk north, although I would recommend heading back downtown. But that’s just me; you do as you please!
