We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
We have picked Saturday, April 23 for this year's hike.
Join us if you want. We had a good time last time we did it. Met a bunch of pleasant Maggie's people. We could easily cover the length of Manhattan in one day, were it not for the darn crossing lights. Doubles the time, and interrupts the hiking rhythm.
Bring camera, good shoes. Rain or shine. It's designed to be a day-long thing but of course people can flake off whenever.
Bulldog will post details. It will be a different route this time. I hope he plans to include the full length of Central Park, and for a cool cheap place for lunch in Harlem or Washington Heights or wherever.
I hope to join, at least for part. If you haven't finalized your route, might I suggest starting in the West Village and walking up the High Line to 30th Street. It's very interesting if you haven't done it, and you'll miss a lot of traffic lights. Also, I repeat my invitation to pass by the Official Manhattan Contrarian Secret Lair. Said Secret Lair is within a few blocks of Myers of Keswick (mentioned in previous comment). Indeed, Myers of Keswick (Hudson Street near Jane) is on the direct route from the MC Secret Lair to the start of the High Line at Washington and Gansevoort.
