CANCELLED!! Roosevelt Isle Hike+Cherry Tree Blossom blooming+ Sky Tram Ride to

Cancelled Due to rain.

We will meet at the Roosevelt Isle "F" train station entrance at 11:30 am and start the walk at 11:45 sharp! Our route will take us past the cherry trees which are in blossom creating a beautiful sight . The walk will mostly be along the shoreline of the East river affording a grand view of the Manhattan East side. we will finish the walk at the Tram station allowing any of us who wish to take the overhead cable car tram ride to Manhattan. The walk will last about two hours + or - a bit. There are several restaurants where we finish our tour for those of us who wish to have lunch.
We ask for a donation of $1.00 to help cover the cost of running the Meet up website.

    Glad didn't check email before I left. We had a good day although not all the cherry trees were in full bloom yet. Weather turned out ok. Thanks Werner for showing up to guide us.

    SORRY! CANCELLED DUE TO RAIN>

      The paths and walks are too sloppy and someone may slip and hurt themselves. Sorry, but we have to try to keep it safe.

      With all due respect, it's paved Roosevelt Island, not Bear Mountain, and it's a walk, not a hike. I guess we should all be very careful walking in the streets later today because it rained overnight.

    We opened up the attendee list so everyone who signed up can go. I'm sure there will be some no shows for whatever reasons. Hey, that's OK too!

    John,
    We'd like to, but the few times in the past when we did it, there were only two or three people who showed up. So, it's not really worth doing.

    There's a slight chance of rain on Sat. Is it a rain or shine event?

    April 24, 2014

    • werner

      We will meet rain or shine. If the rain is too heavy we will not go and reschedule.

    Unfortunately I have a change in plan. I've freed up a space for someone on the waiting list. Have fun. Werner, I'll see you soon.

    Is this event only limited to 40 people?

    April 23, 2014

    • quikglik

      I believe it is because parts of Roosevelt Island are under construction, and there is less space to walk around.

      April 23, 2014

    • werner

      Yes, a larger group is too hard to keep track of.

      April 23, 2014

  • Michael J.

    I will be working this Saturday. Have fun

    how much for a tram ride?

    April 18, 2014

    • werner

      same price as subway ride. Use your Metrocard.

      April 18, 2014

  • werner

    Check if there is a reroute of the "F" train from Queens! You may have to take the train into Manhattan 47-50th st Rockefeller center station and cross the platform to take the train back to the Roosevelt Isle. station. They sometimes do track work on Sat & Sun causing the reroute. This should not be a problem coming from Manhattan.
