What we're about

Experience the surprisingly beautiful and tranquil places in NYC. We'll explore its little-known gems, both natural and manmade--lovely gardens, forests, parks, promenades, waterfalls, galleries, art installations, mansions, and much, much more. In summer, we'll even cruise to beaches and offbeat neighborhoods. Expect the unexpected!

I'll provide some commentary, but you'll have plenty of time to chat with the other walkers. All ages welcome!
