Join us, on another day out in the city for a 5 mile exploration of Roosevelt Island. We will explore this island for all that is has to offer. We will see the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Four Freedoms Memorial Park and the ruins of the "Octagon", which was once a mental asylum.
We will be hiking the entire island at a fast pace. There will a few stops to admire the sights and so we can also talk about what we see.
We will all collectively meet inside NYC Penn Station in front of the Information booth in the rotunda (imaged below).
We will leave 30 minutes, past the hour. So get there EARLY! We will then make our way to Herald Square to take the N line train to get to the Roosevelt Island Tram station to cross over the river and arrive on the island.
After which time we finish the hike off after we make our way off the island by way of the Tramway. By that time people may go on their way, or if you wish you can join the remaining Bronies who will be going to get a bite to eat.
Notice about necessary fare: for use the the NYC subway will cost $2.25 per ride then there is the tram fee of $4 which will get you round trip to and from Roosevelt Island. So bring an estimated $10 dollars for transit when we start out.
As a recommendation of this being a hike, it is important to keep well hydrated. So bring along a water bottle. There is some water fountains in the parks, but the first option is highly recommended this time.
Other recommendations would be possibly a light snack if you get a munchies moment while on the hike, also a small towel.
Any other questions or recommendations, please let us know in the comments. Phone number will be posted on the morning of the Meetup.
