Hi there, ordinarily I would be thrilled to join a hike, but I won't be able to join this time. I hope to join you another time. Thanks for all the information about the hike - I only ever take the Hudson line up, so going up the Harlem line sounded very interesting!

Anyone have a recommendation for a bank / credit union that will loan on a Coop, and/or a realtor friend that works in Jackson Heights ? Thanks!

In case anyone's up for a last-minute day hike on Saturday, 11/10 (sorry for the extremely short notice)
Meeting at Cold Spring, Metro North Station at 9:22am (Hudson Line)

We're doing a four-mile hike on Mt. Taurus (aka Bull Hill) near Cold Spring, NY.

 - The hike is classified as difficult with an elevation gain of about 1,350 feet.
 - Here's a link for a blogger's images and details of the hike: https://hikethehudsonvalley.com/hikes/bull-hill-mt-taurus/
 - Wear layers, plan for muddy trails, and pack a dry shirt for the way home.

We may do a similar hike soon, which I'll post more in advance.

For the meeting point at the Metro North railway station in Cold Spring, NY:

    From Grand Central, train departs at 8:00am and arrives at 9:22am no transfers necessary ($29)
    From Harlem 125th St, train departs at 8:11am and arrives at 9:22am, no transfers necessary ($29)
    We will try to get hiking right away, so best to use the bathroom on the train!

Two group leaders will have cars at the train station to drive approximately 10 minutes to the trail head.
The hike will take approximately 3-3.5 hours and we will have several options afterwards:

    Drive back to the train station to head home
    Drive back into Cold Spring for lunch before departing

The trains out of Cold Spring are hourly (12:59pm, 2:01pm, 2:59pm, 4:03pm, etc), so if anyone needs to leave immediately after the hike, no problem and if anyone wants to stay and enjoy the coastal town of Cold Spring, no problem!

I'll be at the next BH meeting, but as of now, that location's owner recently told us they may need the space, so the date or location may change.

So, we may keep the 11/27 date at an alternate space, or find a date close to 11/27 at the current space.

More to come as info materializes.

We'll be doing the same Mt. Taurus hike near Cold Spring, NY again this Sat., 11/17.

Please see the recent related post above for details; times and meeting spots are the same.

Only update is the trailhead is a short walk from the train station.

Also, remember to bring water and snacks/food.

Here's a blog post covering the hike:

Hello from Sunny Florida! I'm heading back to NYC mid February and wanted to see if people are interested in showing off their facial hair on Feb 16th or 17th in the Winter Garden Atrium in Brookfield Place mid-afternoonish?  Time and place are flexible depending on your schedules/predilection.

It was awesome meeting you guys yesterday.

For those who missed it, some of us will be doing the Great Saunter, a 12-hour walk around Manhattan, on Saturday May 4th. It's not free, but for $25 it's a pretty good value for your entertainment dollar.

There are three prep walks for the Great Saunter that I'll be doing if the weather is decent (and maybe even if it isn't). There is a $3 suggested donation for non-Shore Walks members.

Saunter Stretch #1 - 11 miles, 4/13
Saunter Stretch #2 - 11 miles, 4/20
Saunter Stretch #3 - 12 miles, 4/27

Also, does anybody want to do a regular sitting meetup again, like the Brookfield place meetup last month?

Join us for a free walking tour of the Brooklyn & Manhattan Bridges this Saturday, 3/16/19.

Our guide will talk a little about the architecture and construction of the bridges and explore some of the neighborhoods bordering them.

Bring water, snacks, sneakers, layers including windbreaker, and sunglasses. 

Optional lunch stop if the group is up for it.
