New York: The Great Saunter May 4 2013 SEE MANHATTAN AT 3 MPH! View The Great Saunter: a 32 mile walk around Manhattan's Shoreline in a map Experience New York City like you never have before! http://shorewalkers.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=77&Itemid=136 Join Shorewalkers on Facebook and Meetup.com. On the first Saturday each May, Shorewalkers holds The Great Saunter—a 32-mile walk around Manhattan's rim. The pace is steady, but not fast. Most of the route is fairly flat. We keep to the waterside as much as possible. There is no rain date; we will go rain or shine.The Great Saunter is a World Famous Civic Event that attracts tourists and walkers from New York, as well as other states, and countries. It is truly an international event in an international city! The Great Saunter has received support from New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, NYC Parks Commissioner Adrian Benepe, and the Manhattan Borough President. Join the Shorewalkers on this spectacular 32-mile walk around the rim of Manhattan Island, starting early at South Street Seaport and ending there that evening for a celebration. Walk through 20 parks, experience many cultures, and celebrate the new Manhattan Waterfront Greenway. See the Statue Of Liberty, New Jersey, the Palisades, all four outer Boroughs, people fishing in the rivers, cherry trees in bloom and spring flowers. Enjoy lunch in Inwood Park. Walk part or all of the route. Meet people from all over.
