Sunset Walk on Scenic NJ Riverfront: Jersey City, Hoboken & Southern Weehawken
dim. 26 août à 00:00
This walk along the riverfront in JC, Hoboken, & Weekawken is on a scenic route filled with interesting places. I will occasionally comment on some things along the way, but you will have plenty of time to socialize with others. We will, once in a while, stop at points of interest. Cost: The cost of this event is $4 per person, which is paid at the start of the walk. This is for the organizer's Meetup preparation costs & fees. (Please read the "About Us Section" for more information regarding the $4 per person fee for each event.) This one-way walk is 5 miles, moderate paced. Bring dinner (or buy dinner at Kings Supermarket in northern Hoboken where we'll have dinner outside near the riverfront starting at 7:45 PM), water, walking shoes, extra layer of clothing. There will be restrooms along the way. THERE IS NO NEED TO POST WHY YOU CAN'T MAKE THE EVENT. If you are registered for this walk and can't attend, please change your RSVP online from "YES" to "NO". (PLEASE READ THE "ABOUT US SECTION" FOR THE GUIDELINES REGARDING THE NO SHOW POLICY.) No young children or pets allowed on walk w/o prior approval of organizer. No smoking, please. If you have a personal matter/questions, please contact John, Event Host, directly through his private Meetup account. Description: We'll see spectacular riverfront scenery & the expansive Manhattan Skyline & discuss the revitalized NJ riverfront as well as the ever-changing Manhattan Skyline. We'll walk through beautiful waterside parks & piers & later see the reflection of the sunset on the Hudson River. Plus it is less crowded on the Jersey side of the Hudson River than on the Manhattan side.

You can use a NYC paid-per-ride to pay the fare, but cannot use NYC unlimited MetroCard or NYC Senior MetroCard. A Senior PATH Smartlink Card (can download application online) ride costs $1.00 each way if you are 65 years or older. Driving Directions: Parking is available on some of the side streets not far from the meeting point in Jersey City. According Jersey City officials, you can find free parking on Saturday on some of the side streets (but not all of the side streets) somewhere near Exchange Place. Last year the drivers found free street parking near the meeting place. To be sure, here is information with phones numbers about Jersey City parking regulations. http://www.cityofjerseycity.com/parking/ The walk ends between 9:00 PM & 9:15 PM at southern end of Weehawken waterfront. At this point, one option for those going back to Manhattan is to take No. 158 NJ transit bus from Weehawken in Lincoln Harbor to PABT in NYC. Another option for those going back to Manhattan & for drivers to get back their cars is to take Light Rail from Lincoln Harbor to Jersey City's Exchange Place (Regular fare $2.25 one way/senior fare $1.10 one way. Bring small bills/coins for vending machine.) https://www.njtransit.com/pdf/bus/T1158.pdf http://www.njtransit.com/pdf/bus/T0100.pdf Rain cancels this walk. Therefore, if it is rainy or forecast is for rain, I will email a cancellation notice before 2:00 PM on Saturday afternoon. If I don't email a cancellation notice, I plan to be at the meeting place.
