Harlem River, Cut Off From Public, Is Getting a Push Out of Isolation
One by one, the rivers around Manhattan have emerged from decades of industrial abuse. The Hudson River has its five-mile ribbon of parkland and active kayaking community; the Bronx River, the occasional beaver sighting; and the East River, a popular ferry service — all contributing to the sense that New York is, in fact, a river city.

Athletes-tourists or tourists-athletes even better, I have a tip for you: the Big Apple you can know and enjoy even without doing the marathon. Or after you have done it you can not be bothered to do an encore due to all the hard work that went in to it.

The Great Saunter May 4, 2013
Congratulations to all 943 particpants of the 28th Annual Great Saunter and the 450 of you who completed this 32 mile saunter. This has truely become both a national and international event, with people coming from California, Florida, Texas, Ontario and a number of European countries to participate and see parts of our shores most New Yorkers never see.
Whether you completed all 32 miles like 11-year-old Morgan Tang and 80-year-old Yaco Genense, or a section of The Great Saunter foot path, the personal benifits and sharing the beauty of New York shores, parks, and greenways with so many of our neighbors was truely a unique experience.
Love on the ...
It was eight years ago when Jean, an elementary school teacher here in the Kansas City area, saw one of my flyers about The Great Saunter. Being physically active she decided it was something she wanted to do. Inviting her boyfriend, knowing that he was not as physically active, she was surprised by his quick and affirmative response. You see Jim decided this would be a great opportunity to propose marriage while on their trip to NYC for the Saunter. He proposed to her at the top of the Empire State Building. Thus, had Cy Adler never started this event, this would never have happened at such a grand location. It is interesting how one event can lead to others, and am sure there are many other interesting stories that have happened because of this great event.
