Let's walk around and stop at the places we normally see while shopping, or running, or rollerblading. Let's take our time to absorb the past, to enjoy the present.
Let's meet at the Mould fountain in front of City Hall (the one with the gas lamps).
Our walk will take us to
African Burial National Monument - http://www.nps.gov/afbg/index.htm - From about the 1690s until 1794, both free and enslaved Africans were buried in a 6.6-acre burial ground in Lower Manhattan, outside the boundaries of the settlement of New Amsterdam, later known as New York. Lost to history due to landfill and development, the grounds were rediscovered in 1991 as a consequence of the planned construction of a Federal office building.
Join us to discover the city and its surroundings. One time it will be the historic cities of the Hudson, the next it will be the wines of the Long Island Fork. On bike, by train, in a car, we pledge to uncover hidden places and cover the more obvious ones.
We are committed to learn more about the city and beyond, enjoy ourselves, make friends and have fun.
Based on membership and interest, we welcome others to offer events in the same spirit.
Gay men, their kids, and their straight friends and family are more than welcome!
