We will be walking the Hudson River Greenway from 181st Street to 165th Street and lunch at Coogan’s Restaurant on Broadway and 164th Street. After lunch is the option to return to Grand Central via the west side subway or walk over the Highbridge to the IRT subway in the Bronx. The trip up and down for the Greenway has some steep inclines so some my be too tired after lunch.
Leader: Taylor Strubinger
Bill Bellis and Taylor Strubinger are leading the Happy Wanderers to explore the High Line Park in NYC on November 20th. It’s always entertaining, educational and healthy! So get your walkin’ shoes on and join them.
The High Line is a 1.45-mile-long New York City linear park built on a section of a disused New York Central Railroad spur called the West Side.
Metro North Train Schedule:
Darien station at 8 58 AM
Noroton Heights at station 9 02 AM
Downtown start of Park
We will start at Vinegar Hill, walk through the DUMBO (Down Under Manhattan Bridge Overpass) section, and make our way to the Brooklyn Navy Yard. A museum opened at the Navy Yard last year at Building 92 that surveys the history of the Navy Yard from the Revolutionary War through the current day. All are invited.
Everybody is invited. Contact Bill Bellis for more details.
Taylor Strubinger will lead the next Happy Wanderers trip scheduled for June 14.
Taylor plans to walk north from 125th street, perhaps as far as the Cloisters. The Wanderers will depart on the train from the Darien Train Station at 8:28, and Noroton Heights Station at 8:31. Join them for an interesting walk.
The second walk in New York with the Happy Wanderers was on May 17. It featured a wander from City Hall Plaza, through Chinatown, through the Bowery, and uptown though a cross-section of Manhattan neighborhoods to Grand Central Terminal.
The DMA Happy Wanderers are a loose-knit group of DMA members that enjoy walking the sidewalks of New York City. The group is led by John Barston and Bill Bellis.
About once a month during the good weather months, the group takes a train into the city to enjoy walking, learning something about the history of the city, enjoying good food at a nice restaurant, and having a drink or two at some historic bars. The walks are leisurely and may be five miles or more in distance.
The group usually departs around 8:30 to 9AM and catches a train back to Darien in the 4 to 5PM timeframe.
