Walk on the Brooklyn Bridge

VERY IMPORTANT: For those who want to continue the trip but live too far away from the MegaBus pickup in White Marsh, Boltbus and the Peter Pan Bus are located in downtown Baltimore and offer weekend bus service to New York City on Saturdays.  The Boltbus pickup is located at Penn Station, and Peter Pan bus service is located at the Baltimore Greyhound bus station on Haines Street.  Go to www.boltbus.com and www.peterpanbus.com for more information.  If you choose to use one of these services, you can meet up with the group when you arrive in New York.  I will provide my contact information days before the trip and I will meet up with you when you arrive in the city.

 

On this outdoor adventure, we will take a one-hour walk across the famous Brooklyn Bridge!  As we walk on the bridge, we should see fantastic views of the Manhattan skyline, the East River, and the Brooklyn borough. 

After arriving in New York, we will eat a quick lunch before walking.  After lunch, we will enter the bridge from the Manhattan side and walk along the bridge from Manhattan into Brooklyn.  After our walk we will rest and eat dinner in the Brooklyn Heights neighborhood near the bridge.

Important Note: To prepare for this walk, be sure to bring a snack, water and a beverage and good walking shoes.  On our walk, we will stop at certain points on the bridge for resting and enjoying the views.

*A detailed itinerary will be emailed one week before the date of the trip.

 

 

Important Information

-We will meet at the White Marsh Park and Ride.  I will take a MegaBus from Washington, DC and meet you all when it arrives at the White Marsh Park and Ride.  I will provide my contact number several days before the trip begins.

-We will be traveling to New York through the Megabus service.  Tickets can be purchased online at www.megabus.com ($50 - $60 average for round trip at current time).

-When entering website, schedule bus trip for 9:50AM - 1:10PM (Depart to New York), and schedule the return trip for 8:40PM – 11:50PM (Return to Baltimore).  The date of the trip is Saturday June 1, 2013.  Please be sure to enter information correctly, as Megabus does not refund tickets; however, they will allow you to reschedule trip 24 hours prior to the scheduled trip date.

-The White Marsh Park and Ride is located at 8476 Honeygo Boulevard, White Marsh, MD 21236 (at the corner of Honeygo Blvd. and White Marsh Blvd.).

-Feel free to e-mail me if you have any questions or concerns.

      Hi Jennifer. Thanks for sending. I had checked yesterday and it still showed only up to 4/30. Check your time on the departure of White Marsh at 9:50 am. I see it is $27. The return bus is $1 leaving NYC at 8:40pm. Just want to make sure you are on the right bus to leave B'more. This is my 1st meetup with the group too.

    • Maria

      Joan sorry but I just remembered that I will be out of town that weekend. But if you are wondering how to hook up with the group, the bus will take you to the Port Authority and the Bolt bus drops off right around the corner from the Port Authority.
