Post-work Walk: Roosevelt Island

  • May 14, 2013 · 6:15 PM

*** Brisk 3-4 mile walk through the city ***

WHAT: Let's stretch our legs after work by taking the tram to Roosevelt Island and completing a loop around the Island. We'll do a 3-4 mile walk at a brisk pace with few stops; it should take less than 1.5hrs. Consider bringing snacks/water with you.

ROUTE: Tram--> Roosevelt Island --> TBD (You will need a Metrocard to ride the tram - works same way as the subway)

WHEN: Tuesday, May 14 @ 6:15PM (will wait for additional 15 minutes and leave promptly at 6:30). 

WHERE:2nd Avenue & 59st Street - North West corner, next to where the tram departs. I'll be wearing a bright red scarf so you could spot me. Green line (4/5/6) to 59th Street / Yellow Line (N/Q/R) to Lexington and 59th Street / F to Lexington and 63rd (about 10min walk from each).

Please be on time as we will not wait for late comers. If you can't join us at the start of the walk, there is no option of meeting up later. My number's[masked], just in case.


*** FOOD: Folks, pack some snacks/dinner with you - if the weather's nice, we'll have a mini picnic on the Northern tip of the island, by the lighthouse ***

    Lovely stroll around an almost suburban NYC. Beautiful weather, skyline, river, people, and conversation. Thanks Yelena for bringing us together.
