Hiking the island of Manhattan

Starting around 2003, Jake Woland and I built a pseudo-tradition of hiking Manhattan tip-to-tip with the RUOC. In 2006 we tried something different and hiked Brooklyn from Coney Island to the Manhattan side of the Brooklyn Bridge.

Interesting architectural stops may (or may not) include Tschumi's new blue tower and/or 40 Bond.

As the Times reported, To Walk a Landscape is To Know It. After this hike, you'll know it better than you can imagine (and will probably want to get it know it much more).

If you think you want to make the hike this Sunday, you should email me in the next day or so.
