Starting at the Nexus of the Universe (East 1st Street and First Avenue), we'll visit Pendant Publishing, determine if a soup and a sandwich counts as a meal, and pick up a marble rye on our way home. We'll also hop over to Frank Costanza's house in Queens to shoot some pool. Here's to feeling good all the time.

Our final survey walk of Manhattan covers the upper quarter of the island, starting at 110th street and snaking its way through Harlem, Washington Heights and right to the tip of Inwood. Long walks on Broadway and Amsterdam Avenue lengthen out the walk, while a trek down Highbridge Park and the Harlem River Drive completes the day.
