Where I run: Riverside Park

Despite being described by The New York Times as "the new Short Hills" because of the influx of families with small children, the Upper West Side has some advantages. The biggest, for me, is easy access to New York's two best parks, Central Park and the less famous Riverside Park. The latter is my favorite. I think it used to be a lot scruffier, and there is still the odd whiff of pot smoke during the evenings or lunatic vagabonds. For most part, it's great: lots of trees, dirt paths and even a bird sanctuary. I decided to try out the Nokia N95, which is hopelessly complicated for me, and finally join Flickr. All the photos are the stuff I see during my regular 5.75-mile run there.

5 miles, 36:49
