In honor of World Water Day, join us on a walk along the Hudson River and a historic stroll through the Upper West Side. neighborhood. New York City owes its history and development to its geographic location and access to water. We’ll also stop by some of Central Park’s waterways and the site of a natural spring that was used by the residents of the Seneca Village community in the 1800’s. This amazing tour will cover the history of Manhattan’s development from the 1600’s to the present with stops at many architectural treasures and iconic buildings. Tour is free with a suggested voluntary donation of $10 per person to be given to charity: water, a non-profit organization that is building wells in the developing world.
Tour lasts 2.5 – 3 hours ending at 81st Street and Columbus Avenue.
World Water Day is part of the United Nations annual effort to call attention to the global clean water crisis. Outside of Warburg Realty’s 451 Columbus Avenue office we will host an interactive event to simulate the lengths to which women and children all over the world must go to provide water for their everyday needs.
The sidewalks will be carpeted blue and lined with jerry cans. Each time a participant carries a jerry can, we’ll make a $2 donation in their honor to Charity:Water.
