Upcoming Training Activities

 

New York City Shorewalkers  

 

One of our fellow Overnight Walkers, Gerald Matusiewicz, is part of an organization that specializes in promoting and preserving the waterfronts of New York City. Their mission is to hike along the shoreline of the metropolitan area and what better way to train for The Overnight than to join Gerald and his colleagues on multiple hikes throughout New York City.

Below are some upcoming Training Walks Gerald and the New York Shorewalkers organization agreed to share with our Overnight Community to help prepare for the Overnight Walk. For more information and question, please contact Gerald directly at 845-418-0745 or at [email protected]

Hudson River Walk to Little Island and to the High Line 

Saturday, May 14th, 2022

Hosted by Shorewalkers and YOUN (917-607-0064)

Details: 

Join us on a moderate paced walk of 7-8 miles along the Hudson River Greenway, with a visit to Little Island and The High Line.

From 72nd Street, we walk to the Hudson River and follow the Greenway south to Little Island, a 2.4-acre public park located at west 14th Street. Developed by the Diller-Von Furstenberg family foundation, along with Hudson River Trust, Little Island is supported by 132 Pot-Shaped structures called "Tulips" suspended above the water, functioning as GIANT POTS with 35 species of trees, 70 species of shrubs and 200 species of herbs & flowers.

As its designer Thomas Heatherwick said "raise the surface to create Relief & Make the Island a dynamic experience that offers many views of the city".

After lunch, we walk The High Line the elevated former freight railroad
line transformed into a wild wonder land of city wilderness.

Bring: Lunch, water, sunscreen

Meet: Trader Joe's, Broadway & 72nd Street, 1/2/3 trains

Walkway Over the Hudson

Saturday, May 21st, 2022

Hosted by Gerald Matusiewicz (845-418-0745)

Details:

Ride Metro North along the Hudson River and take a walk on the old Poughkeepsie railway bridge that has been converted to a pedestrian walkway. Beautiful views of the River and surrounding mountains in the Poughkeepsie - Highland area from 212 feet above the water. Moderately paced, the round trip walk from the Poughkeepsie Metro-North station is about 5 miles.

We will also do an optional 3 miles walk on the Hudson Valley Rail Trail. If you would rather wait in the rest area of the Highland side of the bridge, we will pick you up on our way back to the Poughkeepsie side.

After the walk we will go to Akari, a Japanese restaurant at the Poughkeepsie train station, for a late lunch.

Take the Metro North Hudson Line train from Grand Central to the Poughkeepsie station (last stop). We will meet in the station waiting room at 11:45 (if the waiting room is closed we will meet at the back doors of the waiting room).
