Walk the walk and hear the talk about the waterfront
The Hudson River Waterfront Conservancy conducts its next popular “Walk on the Hudson River Walkway” on Sunday, June 29 starting at 9 a.m. The group will meet in Exchange Place Plaza (near the Hyatt Hotel) and will walk north at an easy pace to Hoboken’s Erie Lackawanna Terminal. The walk will take about two hours, right at the river edge. There’s lot to learn about the area and to see (views of Manhattan and the harbor are fabulous). Everyone, including children and your dog, are welcome. A donation of $5 is suggested. More info can be found at hudsonriverwaterfront.org.
