Walking the Hudson
by Cy A Adler (Author), Pete Seeger (Introduction)
Cy Adler authored the first complete guide to walking from the southern tip of Manhattan at Battery Park all the way up to Bear Mountain near West Point. With all the new changes to the West Side of Manhattan since that guide was published, Walking the Hudson, the new and fully revised guide to this fabulous route, will be much appreciated by walkers, history buffs, and anyone who wants to experience this great area up close and under their own power.
The route is nicely broken into segments of 2–9 miles each so one can walk as little or as much of the route as desired at a time. The average walker can finish the entire route in two to four days. Black-and-white photographs throughout.
“Reveals the beauty and wonder of one of America’s most familiar yet least appreciated waterways and shorelines.” —Ruth Messinger, former Manhattan borough president
