79th Street Boat Basin and Riverside Park Walking Tour
Tue, May 16, 2017, 6:15 PM – 7:30 PM EDT
Guide Leslie Day is a New York City naturalist and author (her Field Guide to the Natural World of New York City is a must-have for park wanderers) who raised a family aboard a houseboat docked at the 79th Street Boat Basin. Who better to lead this botanical history walk, a flora and fauna-focused exploration of Riverside Park and the Boat Basin environs, including the geology and architectural pieces of the park. We'll start at the 72nd Street promenade along the river and walk north, aiming for sunset at the Boat Basin!
This is a fabulous walk for families, too! Leslie Day seriously knows all - she's got us covered on every fountain, path, flowering tree, herbaceous plant, bird, or butterfly along the way. So come out and explore the Upper West Side jewel that is Riverside Park!
