Happy New Year Everyone! We will meet on the Northbound platform of the Metro North Train Station in Bronxville, NY at 10:50am. We will take a quick stroll over to Lawrence Hospital to sign in, take a bathroom break, and confirm the lunch reservation with the restaurant. We’ll then hit the Bronx River Trail and make our way through Tuckahoe and Crestwood and then arrive in the Village of Scarsdale at the Metro North Train Station. The restaurant is a short walk from train station. After lunch, we can decide if we want to walk back to Bronxville.
We will dine at Chat American Grill http://chatamericangrill.com. It is located at 1 Christie Place in Scarsdale, NY. The reservation will be for 15 people at 1pm. Each guest will be given a separate check for his or her food service. Brunch price range from $12 - $27 before tax and tip.
The RSVP limit is 15 and registration on meetup is only needed for those who want to be included in the reservation for the brunch. Please only register if you want to be included in the reservation. Do not RSVP if you only want to walk and not attend the lunch. If you only want to walk, then all you must do is show up and sign in when you arrive.
The walk is a minimum of 4 miles or as many as 8 if you decide to walk back to Bronxville from Scarsdale.
Take the 10:23am train out of Grand Central for arrival in Bronxville at 10:50am. Bathrooms are available in Bronxville, Crestwood and Scarsdale.
The walk is reasonably flat on paved paths or streets. This walk is free for Shorewalkers members and $3 for non-members. If you are not a member, then please bring 3 single dollar bills. I do not plan on giving change and credit cards are not accepted for the $3 fee.
Meet: 10:50am at Bronxville Metro North Station.
Leader: John Ventura[masked] or [masked].
