The Great Saunter

The Great Saunter is a 32 mile walk around the island of Manhattan.  It is hosted by a group called Shorewalkers and occurs the first Saturday in May.  I had the opportunity to do the Great Saunter in 2012.  It was great!  

This page is intended for those who have a curiosity of what you would see during the Great Saunter.  I took 150+ pictures when I did the 27th annual Great Saunter, uploaded them to flickr, and grouped them by section of NYC.  Below are the slideshows by section of Manhattan:
