This week we take the long march to Fort Totten, a preserved civil war naval fortress on the north shore of Queens. A sweep through Kissena Park marks our trip there, while our returns route gives us an in-depth look at the marshy Alley Pond Park. A turn west leaves us at Jamaica for the train ride home.
The 'September in Staten Island' continues by covering the east shore of the island, hitting St. George, Clifton and Shore Acres before walking the length of South Beach. A thorough walk of Great Kills Park gives way to a tour of Historic Richmond town and further ramblings about Latourette Park. The route meanders through Old Town and Emerson Hill on the way back to our concluding destination.
Our first jaunt into North Queens starts with a passage on foot through Elmhurst and Corona. Cutting up through Flushing and taking a right at Spa Castle in College Point, we round the turn at Crocheron Park and Little Neck Bay. The route back takes us by the scenic Long Island Expressway and through Queens College.
