Storm King on the west side of the river is my favorite. It's less steep than Breakneck or Anthony's Nose if you're looking for something easier.

Naturebetty, here’s a bunch listed at NY/NJTC.  There are many more than what’s on this list. https://www.nynjtc.org/view/hike?field_difficulty_value=Easy+to+Moderate&field_features_items_value=...

Bonticou crag in thye Gunks. It is not a climbing route but rather a moderate hike that offers some safe exposure at the top of the ridge.
