Hike Report: 43rd Great Manhattan Bridge Report

Article and photos by Jack Shi, Shorewalker hike leader

They must be just around the bend. I should catch up to them soon. At least, that’s what I thought as I ran across the Manhattan Bridge.

The last time I tried running across the Manhattan Bridge was during high school when I went to New York City with two friends as part of a class project. Within a few minutes, we’d both lost sight of our fast runner friend Vincent and our resolve to keep running. We walked the remainder of the bridge, ending up in Chinatown. We had a fun day but the most memorable part of that experience was how impossibly long the bridge seemed to stretch, like a great arch into a future we couldn’t see and could never reach.
