Greenpoint Brooklyn & Lunch & Walk of areas affected by Sandy

We will meet in front of Macdonald's at the corner of Greenpoint Ave. & Manhattan Ave at Greenpoint, Brooklyn.  If it's cold, we may be inside.

We will walk part of the NY Marathon route from Greenpoint to Williamsburg, along 4th Ave. to 9th St. and then turn to Red Hook. We walk through some of the hurricane affected area in Red Hook.  After that we will take a ferry over to lower Manhattan and walk though some of the areas here.  We will stop to have lunch somewhere in Greenpoint or Williamsburg.  Total walking distance is anywhere from 7 to 8 miles.

To get there (1) take G train to Greenpoint Ave. station,

(2) take 7 train to Vernon Blvd/Jackson Ave station in Long Island City, walk east to 11th Street and south to and across the bridge to Brooklyn side, follow McGuinness Blvd to Greenpoint Ave, turn right to the corner of Manhattan Ave.;

(3) take E train to 23rd St-Ely station, walk west to 11th St and then south Pulaski Bridge and cross over to the other side, follow McGuinness Blvd to Greenpoint Ave, turn right to the corner of Manhattan Ave..

Please check with NYC MTA for any station closings or train route changes for that Sunday.

    Yes, the NYC Marathon has been canceled, but the meetup event will go on, with some modification. We will still meet in Greenpoint but differently location.

    For those in lower Manhattan and would like to walk to Greenpoint, meet me at 8:30AM at the foot of Delancey Bridge (on the Manhattan side). It's about 3 mile walk. Along the way we'll see wheel-chair competitors passing by.
