Ticks are still somewhat dormant at this time, so the risk is considerably less than in mid-summer. But the Rangers tell me that they've occasionally picked up ticks in early spring, so precautions are still warranted. It takes roughly 36 hours for a tick to settle down and bite, so the surest protection is a thorough search of your body after the walk.
Re your question about the Harlem walk: To see whether it's full, please go to the web page for the walk. (If you don't know how to find it, let me know.) You'll find all the info there about how many spots aqre open, whether there's a waiting list, etc.
