About 9 miles total walking. We will start at the fountain at City Hall Park, walk across the Brooklyn Bridge, into Brooklyn Bridge Park, along the Brooklyn Promenade then reach Pier 6 at Atlantic Avenue for the ferry to Governors Island. Once we reach the island we will have lunch at the food trucks, view the Jazz Age Picnic and tour Fort Jay, Castle Williams and the new Hills overlooking the Statue of Liberty.
Bring a hat and sunblock, there is not a lot of shade on the Brooklyn part of the walk. Bring lunch or try one of the many food trucks on the island. The ferry is $2 round trip, pay in cash before we board. The walk will end on the island, take the ferry back to either Pier 6 in Brooklyn or the Battery-Maritime Building in Manhattan.
MEET: at 10:30 a.m. at the fountain at City Hall Park. Take the 2 or 3 to Park Place, the R to City Hall or the 4,5,6 to Brooklyn Bridge/City Hall.
