Runit; Interesting comment on the hills of the East side of the Hudson River. I have run that area albeit 30 years ago and absolutely loved it. If I ever came back I would be a starter for a run.
However, and don't take this as an insult but when we Kiwis talk hills we are talking hills that can be MILES long and steep. I lived in the Waitakere Hills that Arthur made famous. Where my parents lived the only flat area was the half mile part of the road outside their house, the rest was hills.
A 10 mile run could be measured in thousands of feet climbed (and descended).
Other parts of NZ have hills that make the Waitakere's feel like a flat run.
Where I live now I have 2 Hill runs that are a 20 minute run from my house that are 4 miles long and climb at least 1000ft in the process. One has a road called (Obviously !!) Hill Road !!.
Jack Foster ran both on a reasonably regular basis.

BTW : I love New York. Also had some awesome runs in Central Park.
Is the saying still around ; "The Bronx is up and the Battery down?"
