Roosevelt Island Walk + LIC Walk to Studio Square

This is a Multi-Meetup Event: 5 BORO Exploration, Hiking & Nature, New York Afternoon Hiking, A Walk to Remember, Fun Stuff to do in NYC, Friends from Bayside and Beyond, NYC Chill Hiking, Astoria Newbies and Alternative to the Bar Scene

MEET: We'll meet at the The Roosevelt Island Tram on the Manhattan side at 11am. We'll get to know each other for 20 minutes while we wait for latecomers. As you can see from this link: http://goo.gl/maps/Kt7Ca there are multiple subway stations near the meeting point. 

DEPART: We leave at 11:20. If you arrive after that time you'll miss the boat, or the tram in this case. You'll need your Metrocard to ride the tram. 

WALK #1: Once we get to Roosevelt Island we will walk around the entire island. From end-to-end the island is approximately 2 miles so double that = 4 miles. See this link for the approximate route: http://goo.gl/maps/j93tG 

WALK #2: After we've walked around the island we will walk 1.4 miles across the Roosevelt Island Bridge and through Long Island City before collapsing at Studio Square. =)  Studio Square is an enormous beer garden and restaurant that can accommodate a large group such as ours. If you're not a drinker no problem. Just stay for the food and the company. See this link for the route: http://goo.gl/maps/tKE5j 

LEAVE: When you've had your fill of food and/or beer you can leave. When that time comes you've got the M, R, N, and Q trains mere blocks from the restaurant. See this link: http://goo.gl/maps/85Tzg 

DRIVE: If you want to drive to this event I would suggest driving to the end point of this event and find street parking around [masked]th Street, Long Island City, NY 11106 and taking the R, N, or Q train to the starting point in the city here: http://goo.gl/maps/WFCpY 

NO WALK JUST SIT AND DRINK/EAT: If you don't want to join us for the tram ride and the walk you are more than welcome to meet us at Studio Square. I'd say come around 4pm

RAIN DATE: If it rains this walk is a no go, but snow is a go. 

PACE: Moderate

DISTANCE: Approx 5.5 miles 

If you have any questions prior to or on the day of the event, please do not hesitate to give me (Beau) a call at [masked]

    There are too many things that are unpredictable. I think we are not going to carpool. I look forward to seeing you there. If for any reason you want to follow our unpredictable schedule, I will gladly drive you.

      Larry, I used to live in Windsor Oaks for many years. How about I drive to you and we, my son and I are both coming give you money for gas. Regardless, I will email you.

    OK. I don't mind driving. I think we can park on the street, so there wouldn't be any parking fee and the gas is trivial. If the weather forecast is favorable I will email you my contact info.

    Larry, I'd love to. I am from Long Island so I was thinking that if you are in Queens, I would drive to you and you would drive from there and we would split the parking or the gas or both. If you are from Long Island, then I will drive if you prefer. I might have my son with me.

    I hate to be a wuss but if it is cold I plan on cancelling with a few days notice, under thirty degrees that is. I can take any amount of heat. Thanks for the suggestion.
