44th Great Manhattan Bridge Walk

We will split into two groups covering slightly different routes. A faster group will walk over every pedestrian-friendly bridge around the perimeter of Manhattan Borough (~34 miles). The other group will do the same around the perimeter of Manhattan Island (~31 miles). Starting with the George Washington Bridge from New Jersey to Manhattan, we will proceed clockwise around Manhattan and end with the Brooklyn Bridge from Brooklyn into Manhattan. There will be one ride on the Roosevelt Island Tramway for the faster group. Bring or buy lunch. There will be a few short breaks. Feel free to eat during the breaks or while walking.

Route:  

Great Manhattan Bridge Interactive Map
We will not walk over George Washington Bridge together. I advise doing it before starting with us if you want to do so. This is so we do not have to complete an out and back as a group. Listed are the 22 times we cross a waterway for the faster group and the two underlined main rest stops. The 18 true perimeter bridges are in bold. The route for the other group is very similar.
