Walk around Astoria

In conjunction with the the 5 BORO ExplorationHiking & NatureAstoria NewbiesAlternative to the Bar SceneTeam AwesomeHang out in Queens and Nassau and I Love Adventure please join us for a walk around Astoria, Queens starting at Socrates Sculpture Park located at 32-01 Vernon Blvd, Long Island City, NY 11106. We'll spend around 30 minutes checking out the park and getting to know each other. Afterwards we'll walk around Astoria following this route: https://goo.gl/maps/YyeZn 

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 next to 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 get our snack and drink on at Katch Brewery and Grill located at 31-19 Newtown Ave, Astoria, NY 11102 

The pace of this walk will be easy-going. The total distance is 4.8 miles and it should take approximately 3 hours to complete.  If you do not wish to walk all 4.8 miles, please feel free to break away at any time.

If you do not want to walk with us you can just meet us at Katch Brewery and Grill after 5pm. 

My events are about meeting people and having fun. All ages are encouraged to come. 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 this is your first time attending a meetup, try not to worry too much. Around 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

    Thank you Beau, for a wonderful amazing day, hiking ASTORIA, Socrates Sculpture Park, and Astoria Park. I had a good time, great weather, great group of hikers, great hike leader, and got good exercise.

    Another fantastic walk hosted by Beau through Astoria Queens. It began in the Socrates Sculpture Park and the art in the part was very unique and interesting. We then walked down the local streets checking out the different stores and restaurants that make the area what it is today. A bit later we then got to look at Manhattan from yet another point of view. The high for the day was 68 degrees in Central Park and so it was perfect weather for today’s walk. Another five (*****) star Beau walk.

    Just like last week's 3 Bridge Walk, this week's Astoria Walk is supposed to be a super nice and sunny day with a high of 65º. As mentioned in the event description, the meeting time is 1:30 and we depart at 2. If you are late you will have to catch up or try to meet us at a location further along the route. Astoria Park along the shore would be a good option or you can just meet us at Katch after 5. My phone will be off during the walk, but I will turn it back on once we get to Katch. We've got around 100 RSVP's for this event. See ya tomorrow (4/19).
