    3205 Vernon Boulevard, Queens, NY (map)

  • This is a Multi-Meetup Event: 5 BORO ExplorationHiking & NatureNew York Afternoon HikingA Walk to RememberFun Stuff to do in NYCFriends from Bayside and BeyondNYC Chill HikingAstoria Newbies and Alternative to the Bar Scene.

    Please join me for a walk around Astoria, Queens (literally) starting at Socrates Park. We'll spend around 30 minutes checking out the park. Afterwards we'll head over to The Museum of the Moving Image for 40 minutes and then continue on following this route: http://goo.gl/maps/sQznh - Those who do not wish to enter the museum can wait for us at Starbucks which is right across the street.

    My events are about meeting people and having fun. All ages are encouraged to come: 21 to 99. Single, married, couples, widows, gay, straight, black, white and everything in between. Just be friendly and have the ability to socialize with relative normalcy.  

    If you've never been to Astoria, this is the perfect opportunity to really see it as we'll be walking down some major streets including Steinway and Ditmars + we'll be walking along Shore Blvd across from Astoria Park which has amazing views of Hell Gate Bridge, Robert F. Kennedy Bridge, Randall's Island, the East River and New York City. Like really, really amazing!  If you live in Astoria and/or you've been to all these places as I have umpteen times you'll come to see them all again. For those who haven't, you're in for a treat. 

    When all is said and done, we'll kick back, relax and eat/drink at Hell Gate Tiki located at 12-21 Astoria Blvd, Astoria, NY, 11102 

    The pace of this walk will be easy-going. The total distance is 5.3 miles and it should take approximately 3 hours to complete the walk including the park and museum. 

    If you do not want to walk with us you can just meet us at Hell Gate Tiki at 5pm. 

    If this is your first time attending a meetup, try not to worry too much. Usually 80% of attendees are first timers so you won't be alone + we won't leave you alone. You will have a great time, I promise! =) 

    If you have any questions prior to or on the day of the event, please do not hesitate to give me a call at[masked]

    Thanks, 
    Beau

    Was looking forward to this meetup, but with 100% chance of rain, am assuming it's cancelled.
