The best way would be by masking.

You can either do a B&W adjustment layer and mask that, or make a copy of the original layer, convert that to black and white... then erase the parts of the B&W layer/color layer that you don't want.

Ok, once you have your image open, click on the Duplicate Layer button in the bottom of the layers palette (it's next to the trash icon).
You'll get a carbon copy of your image, just on a new layer.

Next, go to Colors > Desaturate. Choose whichever of the three options looks best on your image and click, Ok.

Now go to Layer > Mask... then Add Layer Mask.

You'll see a dialog pop up. Choose White (Full transparency) and now grab your Brush tool.
Make sure your foreground color is set to black (you can do this by pressing the D key) and paint over the area you want to be in color.
