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.
