Description

The Steppers are hopping an early train on May 12 for a trip into New York to walk the "Highline" in lower Manhattan. Plan to meet us and purchase your ticket at 8:00 a.m. We will walk a few blocks down from Penn Station and then take the stairs to the Highline, a wonderful, magical park with walks, gardens and paths overlooking the Hudson and lower Manhattan. Visit the web site to learn more about this special place:

For this walk in addition to wearing comfortable shoes and bringing a water bottle, we recommend bringing a snack if you wish, money for the train, food or other purchases and wearing a backpack - the Steppers string backpack is ideal. Come and bring a friend - memberships for $12.00 are always available but not necessary.

The timing of this walk is flexible, but plan on catching a return train no earlier than 11:00 a.m. Some people may choose to stay longer and do more exploring.

Walks are cancelled in cases of dangerous conditions: poor visibility, icy or slippery pavement.
