Exploring The Five Points, the Two Bridges Neighborhood & the Seaport!

  • October 4, 2013 · 4:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

This meetup is full of surprises and colorful stories: We'll trace the steps of the "Gangs of New York" in the old Five Points area, and after a jaunt through the edge of Chinatown (checking out the oldest tenement building in NYC), we'll make several stops at some very interesting locations, within the virtually unknown Two Bridges Neighborhood.  As we make our way downtown to the South Street Seaport, we'll pass a bar-restaurant that began serving in 1799, and learn about rich history of the seaport which was the world's busiest commercial port in the early-mid 1800's.  Stick around for some optional socializing afterwards along with great views of both lower Manhattan and the Brooklyn Bridge.

    Another excellent excursion. May I suggest that we start on time and keep trips under two hours, so we have time and energy to hang out afterward. Many participants live 1.5-2 hours away.

    I just noticed this morning that I received email that I had gotten into the meetup at 3:15 pm yesterday - there was no way I could have made it by 4 pm with such late notice (or notify anyone else of the open spot) -:(.

    My favorite part was the ending. Hank knows how to end his tours with a bang. Loved that Fulton Market ambiance. Definitely going back there soon.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
