Join us for a mid-day Walk & Potluck at Roosevelt Island’s Light House Park.
Requirements to attend:
1 dish, snack, or beverage. It can be a cultural dish or store-bought. Just try your best to make sure it can feed 10-20 people at least one bite.
Cameras are optional.
12:00 AM: We’ll meet outside the Roosevelt Island F train station.
12:20 AM: We’ll start making our way, 1 mile (25 mins walking), north to Roosevelt Island’s Lighthouse Park.
As we walk you’ll be able to enjoy photographing and sight-seeing the cityscape of Manhattan and Queens whilst feeling the fresh breeze of the East River.
12:45 AM: We have made it to Lighthouse Park! It’s a 3.5-acre passive park that provides grills, picnic tables, a small grassy field, restrooms, panoramic views of New York City, and features 50 ft. lighthouse at the northernmost tip of the island.
1:00 PM: Time for everyone’s shared dish (Potluck Style)! We’ll find a table, or place in the grass, make a spread, and try the food and drinks that each person brought. This will be the perfect opportunity to get to know each other a little better, have some laughs, take some candid photos, and maybe even snap some photographs of food.
2:45 PM: Clean up and pack up.
3:00 PM: We’ll jump on the free bus and head back to the Subway / Trolly / Ferry and say our "Goodbyes" and "See ya next times".
*As always we want you to have a good time and enjoy yourself. However, keep in mind that you are solely responsible for yourself and your belongings.*
