It is official - we're re-scheduled for Tuesday, November 17th.
All other details remain the same. See you then!
The walk was postponed due to the increasing chance of severe weather w/ an outdoor walking tour; everyone who RSVPed was emailed at 4:15pm when the decision was made, and Brendan stood at the starting point from 5:25-6pm to let anyone that did not receive the email know. We apologize for the late notice, and stay tuned for the rescheduled date for next week (confirming w/ speakers now, it will be either Mon-Tues-Wed).
WalkBoston is celebrating our 25th anniversary this year, so we’re looking at many different aspects of walkability. On this downtown Boston walk, we’ll take a look at "the little lanes" - and how downtown Boston is changing. We'll start at Congress Square (You can also Google "Quaker Lane" - the alley behind 19 Congress Street, near the Old State House) and wind our way through Downtown Crossing, finishing the walk with drinks at Jacob Wirth - the birthplace of WalkBoston.
