Great walk, run or bike along the river. Lots of green spaces, spots to stop and relax and great views. Oportunities to kayak on the river for free during the summer, and stepping off point for New York water taxi service.

To fully appreciate Manhattan Island, take the Boat Tour. It lasts about 3 hours with snacks & drinks available, with full commentary from an experienced guide. See Statue of Liberty, Staten Island, Lower Harlem, United Nations etc etc.
