We did it!  We walked the George Washington Bridge - and the Palisades, up to Tenafly - all 9.7 miles!

Spring is definitely here - so let me show you some of the sights we saw, and tell you what may happen next with The Street Teacher! 

Starting Time: We did begin our walk early - although not as early as I had planned, but 8:50am was perfectly fine.  I knew we would make good time. 

Meeting Point: We met at the corner of W. 178th St. and Fort Washington Avenue, just outside the west door of the GWB Port Authority Bus Terminal, which is also the 175th St. stop on the IND A train on the subway.  For our convenience, there was a fruit cart nearby - and, of course, restrooms available in the newly renovated Terminal. 

About our walk: This was a long walk - almost 10 miles!  Yet we enjoyed seeing flowers blooming, and hearing our own stories of past experiences was definitely a bonus.  The Street Teacher will plan another Bridge Walk soon - but this time through another community and with stories of the movies and pilots and jazz!  

Posing Point: We stopped at a cliff-edge point to capture our enthusiasm in a photo - 10 intrepid walkers made smiles for the camera  - note the flowers on the hat!

Would we walk this again?  Of course!  

NOTE: The next time this walk will be offered has yet to be determined, but you are certainly welcome to become a follower here - and request to know the next time it will be offered!  Of course, if there are enough willing walkers this route will run again - and other routes will be devised as well!
