Jack Eichenbaum’s Walking Tour Schedule: Spring 2018
Old Astoria from the New Astoria Ferry Landing
Wednesday, May 30, 6-8 PM
Last year, NYC Ferry began its new route to Astoria. This neighborhood was first settled via a ferry from Manhattan that began in the 1830’s but was terminated after the opening of the Triboro Bridge. We will begin our walk at the ferry landing. (3-10 Astoria Blvd.) A ferry arrives from Wall St (Pier 11) and three intermediate stops at 6 PM. Fare is $2.75. (See https://www.ferry.nyc/routes-and-schedules/route/astoria/ ) Participants can arrive on this ferry (with me) or get to the landing on their own. The walk will include art at Socrates Sculpture park and Welling Court murals, antebellum residences in Old Astoria, churches and Astoria Park. The walk will end at Bohemian Hall, the century old Czech beer garden for optional drinks and dinner. $20 fee collected at the start of the walk.. You must register in advance (email firstname.lastname@example.org) which I will confirm, hold you on a waiting list or advise of a sellout.
