Next lunch break: March your spinach salad just past Second Avenue and let the sound of running water wash away the feelings from that last conference call.

The Oldest Bridge in New York, Washington Heights

Built in 1848, the High Bridge is the oldest existing bridge in New York City. (It connects Washington Heights and the Bronx.) Even though you aren't able to walk across it, you can get a pretty gorgeous view of it from the Manhattan side of Highbridge Park.

Amsterdam Ave. and W. 173rd St.

Where have we been? And how have we not known this existed? Head to Pier 25 to play a round of 18 holes alfresco--all for only $5 a person.

Bike Trails in Cunningham Park, East Queens

If you're starved for a truly natural escape, take your off-roader on the F train all the way to the end of the line. Then from there, explore these seven miles of well-marked trails.

Socrates Sculpture Park, Astoria

Okay, so this isn't exactly hidden--but it certainly is underrated. The East River-facing park rotates its collection of large-scale sculptures. Even better: The current exhibition flaunting 14 rising art stars just opened.

Vernon Blvd. and 31st Dr.
