About This Walk
This will be my 4th time doing a Worldwide Photowalk and have decided to do lower Manhattan. The area we New Yorkers called World Trade Center. There will be plenty of tourists but there is some dramatic New York City architecture. I have visited over a dozen times, photographing the area, and never had a problem with security.
The Photowalk starts at City Hall Park’s water fountain. Plenty of park benches to sit for those who arrive early. We will walk past the Woolworth Building on Broadway. We will be one block away from the World Trade Center area and enter the Oculus Mall. At 12 noon from the Oculus Mall, we will exit and walk to the North Tower Pools memorial to 9/11. At 1 pm we will walk across West Street and enter the Winter Garden. The Winter Garden has public bathrooms that are safe and clean. Also, this area has a food court too. We will exit the Winter Garden with views of the Hudson River this is where the Photowalk will end. I have allocated about an hour for each area.
Afterward, there is a park two blocks away, Rector Park. For those who want to join me for lunch. There are places to buy food/pizza but I will be bringing my lunch.
City Hall Park is very close to many subway lines, so taking the subway to get there is no problem. EXCEPT! And do not blame me for this.
New York City subway system on the weekends, some subway lines will not be running or could be going in a completely different direction. So you have to check the MTA.com website or download the MyMTA app to get the latest information the day before to find out if that subway line is running if you are coming by subway.
I will be wearing a black baseball cap, Brown tinted sunglasses. Blue stripe shirt with a fancy black white camera bag strap, blue jeans, and sneakers. I will be at the Meeting spot before 11 AM and we will start exactly at 11 am. If you are running late then catch up with us in Oculus Mall.
Hope to see you.
Neil Zobler Hi Bill. I had a family emergency so I had to delay my walk, which I did later in the day. So sorry I couldn't meet up with the group. Will I be able to submit an image to the contest anyway? Thanks.
Bill Bert Yes

Marta Perales Hi Bill, I'm also leading a walk in Hoboken. Just curious if your walk has enabled the JOIN WALK button? Thanks!
