43rd Great Manhattan Bridge Walk [34 miles]

For the first time ever, we will be walking over every pedestrian-friendly bridge on the perimeter of Manhattan Borough, not Manhattan Island. Starting with the Brooklyn Bridge into Brooklyn, we will proceed counterclockwise around Manhattan and end with the George Washington Bridge into New Jersey. Without public transportation, this route totals to about 34 miles in length. Main group will be moderately paced with lots of history and an optional fast group if people want it. Bring or buy lunch.
