Chelsea and Flatiron Stroll + Free Concert in Madison Square Park

This meetup is for members who have not been on one of our Chelsea or Flatiron Walks.  Please give others a chance.  No charge just my usual suggested donation of $1 or $2 to defray my expenses.

This approximately 90-minute walk will cover the Chelsea Historic District and the neighborhood's rich history from early entertainment and industrial area to the world's capital for the contemporary arts scene and all that the High-Line has brought.   We will not be touring the High Line itself - that merits a separate experience! 

On our way to Madison Square Park we'll stroll past some of the landmarks of the Flatiron/Ladies Mile Historic District which has its own unique history and extraordinary architecture.  By the time we're finished you will know why these areas have become among the popular places to live and visit in NYC.

Wednesday, June 18th kicks off the free-concert series on Madison Square Park.  Nicole Adkins is an acclaimed indie-pop singer.   Concert runs from 7:00 - 8:30pm.  Link below. Staying for the concert is optional -- as will be drinks/food afterwards.  There is also food available in the park - via Calexico (Cal Mex food) and Shake Shack. You may want to bring something to sit on for the lawn.  There are also park benches but it may be crowded.

    I was wait-listed and just found out there is a space for me--But it's too late for me to take advantage of that spot. I'll change my RSVP now, and hope someone else can use the spot.

    Hi all, it is a hot one today. Should be cooler tonight and we'll try to stay in the shade and shadow of the neighborhood's buildings during our walk. Remember to bring something to put on the grass at Madison Square Park. Concert ends at 8:30pm so we'll catch about half the gig. Afterwards optional hanging out for a drink or a meal. in the area -- maybe the rooftop at 230 5th avenue? Feel free to bring something to eat - also concessions at the park.
