No need to register - just turn up at the start at the right time.
Starting from downtown Flushing, we cross Flushing Creek and walk through Willets Point to see how the Bloomberg inspired corporatization is proceeding. Then on to Flushing Meadows-Corona Park and the New York State Pavilion.
We will try to visit the pavilion but the leader may or may not decide to go in depending on the crowds. After checking out the Pavilion walk around Flushing Meadows-Corona Park then on to Corona for lunch at Tortilleria Nixtamal (see tinyurl.com/3mruqom
). Then on to Jackson Heights where for return to Manhattan by E or 7 Train.
Bring water and snacks and lunch if Tortilleria NIxtamal does not interest you. Awful or dangerous weather cancels. The hike will go with intermittent or light rain or threat thereof, but route may be modified or shortened. Contact leader after 7:00 AM morning of hike if uncertain.
Meet 10:00 AM in front of the New World Mall on the south side of Roosevelt Avenue about 200 feet east of the corner of Roosevelt Avenue and Main Street in Flushing. Take the 7 Train to Flushing-Main Street.
