So let's discover the New You on a few of the Street Teacher's tours through Gotham!
LET ME INTRODUCE YOU TO NEW YORK
1. THE OVERVIEW: A four (4) hour tour that would incorporate a private car (or a coach, if a group that is large) would see panorama of the city: uptown, midtown, and downtown, with
selected stops for short walks.
A great way to say "Hello!" to the most populous city in the United States!
This tour can begin wherever you are. This tour is about 4 hours long.
2. A Visit to Lower Manhattan -
A three (3) hour walk through lower Manhattan, including Battery Park, lower Broadway, Wall Street, and the Brooklyn Bridge. This includes the history of New Ansterdam and colonial New York.
3. Visit the 9/11 Memorial
Perhaps the pivotal point in many New York's lives, that catastrophic event has been remembered and memorialized by a magnificent memorial on the site of those twin towers. Visit them now and hear the stories of some of those who tried their best to help.
This tour is about 2.5 hours long.
4. Greenwich Village - A three (3) hour stroll through the West
Village of Greenwich Village. Literary and cultural history, and current and historical events will be related in this walk through Americas most famous neighborhood.
This tour is about 3 hours long.
5. An Introduction to Harlem
Harlem is known world-wide - but is it really understood? Take this tour to be introduced to the many varieties of uptown New York, from Universities to sports, culture, and cuisine. This overview can give you what you need to begin a visit with a new New York!
This tour is about 3 hours long.
CROSS-BRIDGE AND COUNTRY WALK:
This is a special walk - Stay Tuned!
Autumn walks are often the most refreshing - the air so full of that crisp cool air, and the surrounding trees and ground so full of color.
This walk will take us across the George Washington Bridge and up along the top of the Palisades - through a part of the Palisades Interstate Park and to one of our metropolitan region's closest suburbs, renowned for its history in suburban planning, and our greater social history as well.
So, come with The Street Teacher for a refreshing day both above Hudson's great river, and through one of the best examples of a region's efforts to preserve nature and our geologic heritage. We will begin our walk at W. 178th Street and Fort Washington Avenue at 9:00am (sharp!). We will walk to a diner in our suburban town, and take a bus back to the Port Authority Terminal on W. 42nd Street in Manhattan, arriving some time around 5:03pm.
Yes! A day's hike! But we will rest along the way, and won't make our pace a race.
The cost for this walk is $30. (The cost of lunch and the return bus fare are not included.)
