BRONX RIVER GREENWAY - 233RD STREET TO HUNTS POINT PARK

BRONX RIVER GREENWAY - 233RD STREET TO HUNTS POINT PARK

We will walk the Bronx River Greenway starting at the 233rd Street stop of the 2 line to Hunts Point Park and end up at the Hunts Point stop of the 6 train.  

About 10 miles and 6 hours, moderate pace, mostly paved trails, some dirt paths, some hills. There will be mosquitoes and may be ticks or other pesky creatures, so wear pants and bring bug repellent. 

The walk will take us through Shoelace Park, into the Bronx River Forest and Bronx Park, across Pelham Parkway, into a free part of the Bronx Zoo for a close look at the river, past the Cross Bronx Expressway into Starlight Park, across Westchester Avenue to the Concrete Plant Park and under the Bruckner Expressway to Hunts Point and the new Hunts Point Riverside Park. About half of the walk will be the same as the Allerton Avenue to Soundview Park walk on September 28. 

We will eat lunch at the Royal Coach Diner at 3260 Boston Road; it comes up a bit early in our walk and it is a few blocks out of the way but it seems like the best choice along the way. http://www.yelp.com/biz/royal-coach-diner-bronx

There are some delis and fast food places at the beginning of the hike at 233rd Street and a supermarket and deli at 180th Street for snacks.  At the end of the walk, we will see if the Valencia Bakery in Hunts Point is open, http://www.yelp.com/biz/valencia-bakery-bronx-3.

Drop off points include the 2 train along White Plains Road at 225, 219, Gun Hill Road, Burke Avenue, Allerton Avenue, Pelham Parkway, Bronx Park East, East 180th Street and West Farms Square/East Tremont Avenue, and the 6 train at Whitlock Avenue.

Meet: 10:30 a.m. outside the 233rd Street station of the #2 line at the south west corner of 233rd Street and White Plains Road.  

As of October 4 there is no service advisory for the 2 line on November 10; check for updates here http://travel.mtanyct.info/serviceadvisory/.

You can also take Metro-North Harlem line service to the Woodlawn Station. As of October 4 there is a train leaving Grand Central at 9:25 a.m. stopping at Harlem/125th Street at 9:35 a.m. and arriving at Woodlawn at 9:51 a.m. with a $6.25 fare.  Check for updates here: http://as0.mta.info/mnr/schedules/sched_form.cfm.

When you get off the train at Woodlawn, walk up the stairs at the south end of the platform to the 233rd Street bridge, turn left on to 233rd Street, then walk to White Plains Road at the top of the hill and meet the group, or just make your way to the stairs in front of Montefiore Hospital on the south side of 233rd Street by the bus stop and wait for us there.

    Tom, Thanks for leading the walk on Sunday. Here's something crazy --- I just was looking through family papers and discovered that the address for my father on the marriage certificate was 675 E. 233 Street, Bronx. I googled the address and it's just about directly across from where I waited with you. Anneliese

    Thank you Tom for a great day. I enjoyed the walk very much. Our lunch break was in my old neighborhood so I even got to walk over to my house!

    Just had to switch to "no." A friend has a recital that day and I can no longer go on part two of this. Hope you'll do the walk again next year. I really liked the first part. Such surprising, unexpected beauty along the way. :-(

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
