THE NEW WORLD OF THE NUMBER 7 TRAIN: Date: Saturday May 6 — Time: 10am-5:30pm
Since 1999, when the Metrocard matured, I have been leading a tour called The World of the Number 7 Train. This series of six walks and connecting rides along North Queens’ transportation corridor became my signature tour, focusing on what the #7 train has done to and for surrounding neighborhoods since it began service in 1914. So much has changed since the tour began. In the NEW World of the Number 7 Train, walks take place in the Hudson Yards, the Long Island City shoreline, Flushing West, the Iron Triangle, North Corona, and Woodside-Jackson Heights. The routes are all different from the original tour. SO COME AGAIN! Lunch is still in Flushing’s Asian food mecca. Tour fee is $49 and you need to preregister by check to Jack Eichenbaum, 36-20 Bowne St. #6C, Flushing, NY 11354 (include name, phone and email address) or by PayPal (follow the direct link, but also send me your contact info by email). The full day’s program and other info is available by email. firstname.lastname@example.org The tour is limited to 25 people, so reserve ASAP.
Later in 2017 Jack Eichenbaum will offer a variety of new and updated walking tours, especially in Queens. When air warms up and days lengthen, from May-August, I will expand my offerings of weekday evening walks which end in food-rich locales.
