30 miles, moderate pace, 12 hours. Start at Brooklyn Bridge, end at GW Bridge. We’ll walk over all of the bridges on which one can leave Manhattan Island by foot. If we are lucky, the Old Croton Aqueduct Bridge (aka The High Bridge) will have reopened after 40 years, and we will now have 17 bridges to cross! Bring Metrocard for 2 or 3 bus/subway rides (in addition to the 30 miles of walking.) Bring plenty of water & lunch. Heavy rain at start cancels.
MEET: 8:45 AM at the Municipal Office Building just north of the Brooklyn Bridge, in Manhattan (Take 4/5/6/J/M/Z train to City Hall/Brooklyn Bridge).
The Willis Avenue Bridge, one of the bridges we will be walking over.
