Join me on a 5 mile fun but fast paced tour that I like to annually do on or about the first day of summer. There are a lot of unique parks and truly haunting memorials in this area as well as some sites of historical interest. We will also spend some time in an area once known as "Little Syria." I have led a variation of this hike numerous times in the past for Open House New York which is a city-wide event. This event will be much better. When we move, we will go at a fast pace but I will stop very briefly a number of times to talk about what we see. We are going to end, probably around 9:45 p.m or so near the Fulton Transit Center and Calatrava’s Oculus at the World Trade Center Transit Hub which is an event onto itself. There will be plenty of surprises along the way. (Photo by Steve)
WE WILL BEGIN BEFORE 6:00 P.M. BE READY TO GO. PLEASE MEET AFTER YOU HAVE EATEN DINNER. BRING SNACKS AND WATER.
As an Organizer I have to pay Meetup a relatively small fee each month although they did raise their rates slightly. However, I spend much time and effort preparing for an event. I am going to request that anyone who attends an event make a monetary contribution but the amount of that donation is entirely up to you. You can contribute whatever you want either at the beginning or the end of an event.
I am going to ask that people not post any comments or questions prior to the event. You have more than enough information to do this once you get the meeting details. No offense, but I don’t need to know-and neither does anyone else- what you are doing that day if you can’t make it or what you think the weather will be. These comments are really annoying. AFTER the event, post as many comments and photos as you like.
If the weather forecast is really bad, See the Accuweather website like I do, I will post a notice on the day of the hike by 12:00 P.M. If there is no notice, we go.
