Tuesday, October 2, is the first Wandering of the 2018-2019 program year.

The Wanderers will journey to Roosevelt Island in the East River and to Astoria, Queens.

We will take the 8:35am train out of Darien and the 8:38am out of Noroton Heights.  The group will gather in Grand Central Station at the information booth on the upper level.

 

We will take the subway to the 59th Street station for the Roosevelt Island tram, cross to the Island and walk through Four Freedoms Park and the FDR Memorial sculpture display.

 

 

 

Then, via the East River Ferry, we’ll go to Astoria, Queens.  We will walk by many of the local landmarks associated with the earliest days of the motion picture industry in the United States, through Socrates Sculpture Park and several other sights, and finally have lunch.

We will return by subway in the afternoon to Grand Central for the train ride home.

If it rains Tuesday, we will not go.  A new date will be announced at our regular weekly meeting the next day,
