Breakfast in Brooklyn

We will ride an early morning/midnight bus from Union Station reaching NYC in the morning. First will be a brisk walk along Brooklyn Bridge for breakfast. Returning, we will cover Wall Street and the newly opened Freedom Plaza. We will then proceed to cover the Highline Trail, and via Times Square, walk to Rockefeller Plaza to see the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree. Return will be by Amtrak, reaching DC late Saturday night. About nine miles of walking with stops for coffee, lunch, and other breaks as needed. Cost around $100 per person. Contact leaders Mike ([masked]) and Mano ([masked]) for details and to sign up. Contact early for better bus and train fares.

    Thank you all for coming and being such great troopers. Seems to me that two nights of half sleep, the waiting, the delays, the cold, rain, sleet, snow, and howling wind added to the adventure. Hope to see you on an event very soon.

    At what time are we meeting at Union Station tomorrow? Where are we meeting? Thanks.

    Folks that responded "yes" - you realize that you need to contact the leaders separately (e-mail), correct? That's how you will receive details about how to reserve bus/train tickets, where to meet, and so on. If you haven't done so already I suggest that you do it as soon as you can - the bus/train fares may go up if you wait. If you don't contact us separately we'll assume that you're not going.

      great... now the details said to contact for better bus and train fees... Iv never been to union station, so im clueless on how this works. Is there a central place that everyone will meet at and then buy tickets together? Thanks for the info. Im looking forward to it.

    Hello. I've not yet been to any of the meet ups yet. This one sounds like soo much fun. I'm really into photography, will there be ample time to photograph on this trip?

    October 22, 2013

    • Monster

      Of course you can take pictures; given that this is mainly a hike and we would be walking long distances I am not sure there would be time to stop for long photography breaks; but other than that you can snap as many pics as you like.
