Ethical Adventures Easy Walkers: RFK Bridge
June 6, 2022 @ 9:30 am - 3:00 pm
The Robert F. Kennedy Bridge (aka the Triboro) is actually a complex of bridges and elevated expressway viaducts linking Manhattan, the Bronx, and Queens. On the Manhattan side, it begins with the bridge over the Harlem River to Randalls Island, continues with the bridge over Bronx Kill, and then the bridge over Hell Gate to Astoria, Queens.
Veteran Easy Walkers may recall that our first attempt at crossing the RFK Bridge was cut short by a police closure of the most spectacular section, the Hell Gate suspension bridge. Disappointed, we promised ourselves we’d reschedule it. The time has come!
Details: Meeting at Ethical, corner of W. 64 and CPW at 9:30, we’ll take the #1 train at W. 66th and Broadway to 103rd Street, where we’ll transfer to the M60 and take that to 125th and Second Avenue, the Manhattan side of the bridge. When we reach Astoria, we’ll lunch at the Neptune Diner, probably the most famous diner in New York. We’ll return home via the M60 and #1. (The N train is also nearby in Astoria.) Rain date: Wednesday, June 8.
