    Thanks, Tom, for another great walk and a fun day. The tower was beautiful up close and it will be wonderful when the walkway across the Harlem River is opened. Maybe next year?

    Invigorating walk with a friendly group of people on a beautiful September day. Lunch at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine was a well-planned interlude.
