Week 40 route

We're back in Manhattan and ready to tackle our first and only interior themed walk: museums of Manhattan! We picked five of of our favorites - the MoMA, the Museum of Natural History, the MET, the Guggenheim and the Cloisters - with plans to visit one each day. Baked into the route is 3 reserved for roaming around the various locations.

Week 39 route

Our loose end tour of Manhattan harkens back to our walk of Midtown, where we marched up and down the gridded streets to cover every scrap of territory. This time we're on the Upper East Side, where we somehow missed many of the avenues that parallel Central Park. We'll go from 1st to Madison, then head down to the mid-forties to hit some of the cross streets we missed earlier in the year.

Week 38 route

Episode two of our movies of NY walks focuses on a single film - the 2001 Wes Anderson comedy The Royal Tenenbaums. Anderson's fanciful version of New York hops all over Manhattan, from Battery Park to the Church of the Intercession to the Waldorf Astoria New York.

Week 37 route

New York City is known for its rich literary history, and this week we'll visit the neighborhoods and locations that harbored the greats. Starting in in Williamsburg to visit Betty Smith's 'A Tree Grows in Brooklyn,' we'll hop the bridge for the remainder of our walk, visiting the birthplace of downtown birthplace of Herman Melville, the poetry scene of the East Village, the home of Langston Hughes and the Harlem Renaissance, and the infamous Chelsea Hotel among many others.

Week 24 route

The first in our series of musical walks focuses on the odes to Manhattan's streets and neighborhoods. We'll hit everywhere from the Manhattan Detention Complex to the neighborhoods Across 110th Street exploring the inspiration for some of New York's most famous songs. Acts covered include The Jim Carroll Band, Bobby Womack, Joni Mitchell, Bobby Rodriguez y La CompaƱia and many more.
