Time & Location

About The Event
Whether for living or visiting there are arguably some neighborhoods and sub-neighborhoods that are better than others for access to parks and open space. Tune in for this presentation to discover some of the areas of the city that are ideal for strolling and exploring, and not so dense, yet that have a lot to offer for a "staycation" or for city living. I will include some lesser known neighborhoods and will cover all 5 boroughs.
I will briefly cover around 12 neighborhoods including Woodlawn (The Bronx), Fort George/Inwood (Manhattan), Windsor Terrace and North Bay Ridge (Brooklyn), Kew Gardens (Queens) and Fresh Kills/Oakwood Heights (Staten Island). Many of the neighborhoods have historic interest and distinctive features.
We'll save some time for discussion where you will be free to share any of your favorite neighborhoods or pockets of the city. Hopefully in time I will be able to lead some walking tours to explore these areas on foot!
INSTRUCTIONS: You do not need a zoom account or a password (embedded in link) to participate. Note that if you try to enter the meeting through your own zoom a password will be required. Only members who have RSVP'd as "going" will see the link. I will send out an email reminder with the link prior to the event.
Computers work better than ipads and smart phones for this type of meeting but you can use either. Please "arrive" a little early in case there are any technical difficulties or if you have yet to experience a zoom meeting. You will have the option of seeing fellow members and being seen by others. You can mute or unmute yourself and can enable gallery view to see your fellow members on your screen. Be sure to keep yourself muted if you have background noise in your location or if you are talking with others.
Thank you for your cooperation.
