As beautiful as it can be to watch the leaves of Central Park change color in the fall, it is far from the only option for enjoying the changing seasons in New York. On the West Side, Riverside Park presents multiple levels of activities and open space. At the opposite end of the city, Tompkins Square Park's abundant trees and Halloween Dog Parade are perfect for spooky season. Over the past 100 years, Bryant Park has gone from an eyesore to the home of outdoor movie nights when it's hot out, a bustling Winter Village when it's cold out, and gorgeous foliage in between. And even when Little Island was still under construction, New Yorkers could still enjoy watching the plantings on the pylons change color.

Moreover, while residents of outer boroughs are required to make a subway trip to visit Central Park, they might not need to with their nearest park. Prospect Park was designed and constructed by the masterminds behind Central Park, and would become so important to the area that it gave a Brooklyn neighborhood its name. The newer Brooklyn Bridge Park offers views of the Manhattan skyline as well as gorgeous greenery. A borough away, Van Cortlandt Park brings over 1,000 acres of green space to the Bronx.

Below, we take a look at listings near other prominent parks throughout New York. If you buy now, you could close in time to enjoy peak foliage (estimated for mid-November, as per the Fall Foliage Report) from your new place.
