Activities In New York

New York City is home to the headquarters of the National Football League, Major League Baseball, the National Basketball Association, the National Hockey League, and Major League Soccer.  Boxing is also a prominent part of the city’s sporting scene, with events like the Amateur Boxing Golden Gloves being held at Madison Square Garden each year. The city is also considered the host of the Belmont Stakes, the last, longest and oldest of horse racing’s Triple Crown races, held just over the city’s border at Belmont Park on the first or second Sunday of June. The city also hosted the 1932 U.S. Open golf tournament and the 1930 and 1939 PGA Championships, and has been host city for both events several times, most notably for nearby Winged Foot Golf Club.

Sports Center members enjoy open climbing with belay partners during Rock Wall hours, or head into the bouldering cave to hang around and work through difficult climbing problems. Expert instruction is available for climbers of all abilities and interest levels, and is open to non-members as well. Rock climbing is exercise for both your body and mind. Whether you’re a skilled climber or a beginning, there are plenty of places in and around the New York City area for you to get your rock on. Rock Climbing in New York State consists of three main regions: the world-famous Gunks, properly called the Shawangunks; the Adirondacks, a vast state park with dozens of crags scattered across an area the size of Rhode Island; and Moss Island, a small crag near Little Falls. Several other areas exist, e.g. bouldering in Central Park, the Timp in Harriman Park, as well as many places of questionable access and/or worth.

New York City has a lot of islands Manhattan, Staten, even Brooklyn and Queens lead into Long Island. With this entire waterfront, it’s no wonder there are so many sightseeing cruises and fun ferries. But sometimes you want to be your own captain. No need to hijack a boat; there are many opportunities for families to get out on the water by themselves, kayaking, rowing and canoeing. The Adirondacks are unique among mountain regions in North America for the simple fact that for every mountain peak, there are hundreds of miles of waterways. From the mighty Hudson River, to the magnificence of Lake Champlain, the Adirondacks are a paddler’s paradise boasting more than 3,000 lakes and ponds, and 30,000 miles of rivers and streams.
