Once on the island we will have lunch. Bring your own or order from a local shop.

About the Kayak Trip
Start to finish is a 3 mile round trip. (approx. 3 hours including a stop on the island)
You will need to wear a life jacket.
Beginners are welcome but you must know how to swim or at least tread water. Upper arm strength will be needed.
You will need to sign a waiver before getting in the kayak.

Esopus Island
The Lenape Indians are presumed to have made use of the tiny island, and a stone on the east shore shows signs of human working, resembling a megalith. There is a legend of a Jesuit missionary killed on the island by the Indians.
In October 1777, during the Revolutionary War, a British fleet laid off Esopus Island prior to destroying Kingston, then the provincial capital.
In the second half of the 19th century the island was part of the estate of Robert Livingston Pell and was known as Pell Island.
Aleister Crowley spent 40 days and 40 nights on Esopus Island (which he spelled “Oesopus”) in 1918, translating the Tao Te Ching, meditating, and painting slogans on the rocks with red paint. Friends had given him money to buy a tent, a canoe, and stores for his retreat to the island, but instead of food he bought the paint, brushes, and rope for rappeling, saying that he would be “fed by ravens.” Local people as well as friends brought him supplies.

What to bring:
2 liters of water
sunblock
lunch if not ordering from local deli

What to wear: Sneakers or water socks are recommended. Towel, bathing suit or clothes you don’t mind getting wet. Dress for the weather. There is a changing shed.

Hosted by Dave Cervini's http://www.NewYorkSocialNetwork.com/ and several partner MeetUp groups. Don't worry about coming out alone, that's what many do... you will always have a host to greet you and introduce you to other members at our events.

Needs a location

$30.00

(We have readings on Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday so after you click the link, choose the date/time you want)

You will have a personal one-on-one psychic reading live via video from Martha of Martha's Tarot (world-renowned psychic / 5 star Google rated). The reading will last between 15-20 minutes.

Martha connects with your Spirit Guides and Guardian Angels to bring you the most helpful and uplifting information. When reaching for a new level of understanding of our lives, when we have a very specific question we would like an answer to, or when we would just like to know if we are "on-track"; that's when we find support through any number of psychic readings. Martha ALWAYS connects with love and light. She believes in the strength and power of God, Source Energy (or whichever term feels correct to you). Her aim is to help you gain understanding, identify opportunities, to hone in on possible events or circumstances that may be of help you.

------------------------------------

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING:

"Her reading literally changed my life..." - Angela

"My reading with Martha was wonderful. She offered real insight into an uncomfortable situation I was in, which proved to be very helpful. Plus, the cards indicated there would be an upcoming celebration and not too long after my reading my brother announced he was getting married. So exciting." - Rayna K.

"The reading itself is a vibration shifter..." - Barbara

A MESSAGE FROM MARTHA:

I am a psychic and a medium: the cards are a tool for my abilities to flow to you.

How My Psychic Abilities Work for You:

​Clairvoyance: I see images like snapshots and symbols or stories that unfold in my mind like a movie.

Clairaudience: I hear clearly messages in the form of words, sentences or music.

Clairsentience: I feel the feelings and energy of those near and far and make clear sense of what it is I am perceiving.

Medium/Channel: Using all of the above mentioned abilities as well as allowing information to flow right through my mind from our Spirit Guides and Angels. I do my best to step aside and allow them to use my knowledge and senses to express their messages to you.

RSVPs on MeetUp only represent a portion of those ACTUALLY attending. How many attending? Who's Going to be there? What can I expect? Any questions email [masked]

COST: $45: includes the tour only and a contribution towards your host’s ticket food and drink.

Long after Green-Wood’s gates close to the public, explore its historic grounds under the cover of twilight. You’ll weave through the cemetery’s stunning landscape and visit the graves of fascinating figures in New York and American history. This not-to-be-missed walking tour ends with a visit to the catacombs, which are normally closed to the public.
Join our expert tour guides to hear fascinating stories of Green-Wood’s permanent residents, see breathtaking views of Manhattan, tread where George Washington and his troops fought the Battle of Brooklyn. Founded in 1838 and now a National Historic Landmark, Green-Wood was one of the first rural cemeteries in America. By the early 1860s, it had earned an international reputation for its magnificent beauty and became the prestigious place to be buried, attracting 500,000 visitors a year, second only to Niagara Falls as the nation’s greatest tourist attraction. Green-Wood is hills, valleys, glacial ponds and paths, throughout which exists one of the largest outdoor collections of 19th- and 20th-century statuary and mausoleums. Four seasons of beauty from century-and-a-half-old trees offer a peaceful oasis to visitors, as well as its 560,000 permanent residents, including Leonard Bernstein, Boss Tweed, Charles Ebbets, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Louis Comfort Tiffany, Horace Greeley, Civil War generals, baseball legends, politicians, artists, entertainers and inventors. Covid 19 Precautions will be in place.

How it works:
The group will meet under the gothic arches of the main entrance at 5pm.
The tour is approx. 90 minutes.
Following the tour the group will go to a local café for food and drink.

How do I get there? It is 39 minutes from Grand Central. The R train stops closest.
