What we're about

We have fun, informative, sociable and scenic walks/events in NY, NJ, PA, CT, and DC.

These walks/events go to historic neighborhoods/towns, scenic waterfronts, gardens/arboretums, museums, art studios, historic mansions/estates, parks, waterfalls, annual events, and farms.

Some of our walks are similar to a regular walking tour, 2 1/2 to 4 miles in length, with the tour guide commenting and stopping at many points of interest; other walks, 4 1/2 to about 10 miles long, explore a larger area, with the tour guide commenting at points of interest but not stopping as much as a regular walking tour.
---------------------------------------

A modest organizer/event host fee, listed in the description of each walk/event, is paid at the start of each walk/event.

This organizer/event host fee for each event/walk is for the following expenses:

(1) Semi-annual Meetup fees.

(2) Preparing costs, such as spending much time and effort in planning and researching the walks/events. This includes newspaper subscription costs.

(3) Scouting out most of the walks or events by traveling on NYC subway trains/buses inside of NYC and by traveling on Amtrak trains, Metro-North railroad trains, New Jersey Transit railroad trains, New Jersey Transit buses and private bus companies outside of NYC.

(4) Purchasing neccessary stationery, such as presentation books, index cards, and writing materials.

(5) Making photo copies.

Note: Each organizer for this Meetup has her/his own fee structure.
