Walk from the Battery to Brooklyn Heights

Appx. 6-7 miles - mod.-brisk Pace.

We'll walk through lower Manhattan looking at public art and some architecture then up to the Manhattan Bridge and over to Brooklyn where we'll walk around DUMBO and Vinegar Hill and then wind up in Brooklyn Heights. We'll see where lots of US literary luminaries lived  in the Heights as well as some spectacular residential architecture. 

Walk's planned end is Flatbush and DeKalb where folks can get the Q and R trains many other subways along the way for earlier departure.
Bring/buy lunch. Planned lunch on the Promenade or Brooklyn Bridge Park.
I'm going to be walking pretty quick (if I can) so no strollers please.

If you RSVP yes and change your mind you must change your RSVP to no before 11AM Fri. 5/16 to allow waitlisted folks to attend.

Meet 11 AM in front of Staten Island Ferry Terminal (Manhattan).

If forecast rain look for email before 9AM Sat. 5/17 to see if walk is canceled.

    I cannot attend tomorrow. I was on the waiting list, but sent an email that I COULD attend the walk. Someone else can take my place.
