    I've decided to shorten the walk. Walk will start at Beach 90th street and go down to Beach 19th street. There we will have an extended lunch and the option to go swimming. After lunch, we will walk to Beach 46 street to the A-Subway station where walk will end.

      I assume it's relatively easy to get back to the starting point? I plan to drive to the start point so obviously will need to return there

    Last year, I took the bus going to Rockaway on Main Street,Queens, by Macy's. It took a very long to get to Rockaway due to all the traffic. I found that the subway makes much better time than the bus

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.
