Our second walk focusing on music in NYC takes a look at the history of Hip-Hop in Queens County. From Queensbridge to Corona, from Hollis to Jamaica, Queens native musicians have played a critical role in the development of the form. We'll visit the neighborhood homes of Nas, LL Cool J, Nicki Minaj, A Tribe Called Quest and Kool G Rap, just to name of few. (Note: .4 marathon mileage delta will be made up as we wander)
Horse Racing, also known as The Sport of Kings, has roots in NYC dating back to 1665. This week we'll do a loop visiting both Aqueduct Racetrack in Ozone Park and Belmont Racetrack on the Queens/Nassau border, home of the final leg of the Triple Crown. Turning the corner, we'll get a chance to explore the parks and residential neighborhoods surrounding JFK International Airport.
