We're Walking the Hudson Again in 2013
NOTE: The Walk for tomorrow is on. The forecast as of 8:30 this evening is for clearing sky by 7am and moderate temperatures for the day. Chance of passing showers so be prepared.
Join the 2nd annual walk along the Hudson River on the New Jersey and New York sides - June 8, 2013.
The FreeWalkers will once again be walking with the Hudson River Waterfront Conservancy starting at Exchange Place as we trek along the Hudson River Waterway Waterfront. The route will be the same as last year's but may be subject to change pending the conditions of the waterfront.
The condition of the walkway is good along most of the walk. Most of Sandy's destruction was with the surge that affected the lower part of the river and bay from Liberty State Park south. That affected area is not part of this walk and is under repair and should be accessible again the coming weeks.
Thanks to the progress on the Hudson River Waterfront Walkway on the Jersey side and the well established Hudson River Greenway on the New York side, it has been possible for pedestrians and cyclists to complete a loop, except for the use of the PATH train from downtown World Trade Center to Exchange Place Jersey City.
The incomplete areas around Edgewater will be navigated though detailed explanations provided by the Conservancy and maps and guidelines provided by the FreeWalkers.
This 28-mile walk last year was our largest so far with nearly 100 participating and received the highest ratings. Our efforts can help restore confidence in the waterfront and help merchants get back on their feet.
