A few things I’d like to do (with you)

Bike from NYC to the Hudson Highlands, camp along the way, and return by raft. Email me if you’re interested.

Bike from Manhattan to Tuxedo to Port Jervis, then raft down the Delaware River. Email me if you’re interested.

Walk Broadway in Manhattan end-to-end conversing with interesting people. Email me if you’re interested.

Organize a milonga at the Prospect Park Concert Grove or Tennis House. Email me if you’re interested. [On hold: The Grove is closed, indefinitely, for repairs; Tennis House closed to public.]

Pina Party. Watch Pina, drink pina coladas (or whisky), and dance the choreographies. We’ve got a projector. We need a good space. Email me to join or host.

Opera karaoke. Sing through one of the major operas — Don Giovanni? La traviata? — with friends. Email me to join or host.



Bike from NYC to Boston via Long Island. Spring / Summer 2014. Email me if you’re interested. Completed: August 29, 2014 – September 2, 2014. Went from NYC to Hudson (the town) and then across Massachusetts.

Snowgrilling in Prospect Park. Winter 2013 / 2014. First snowy Saturday or Sunday. Email me if you’re interested.

Bike from Brooklyn to Port Washington. November 16. Nice views at the end. Too much traffic in between.

Bike from NYC to the Hudson Highlands, camp overnight on the Appalachian Trail, and return the next day, by bike or train. About 60 miles one way. May happen Saturday, October 26 – Sunday, October 27, 2013 or weekend after. Email me if you’re interested. We did this November 2nd and 3rd, 2013. Marvelous. Check out the pictures.

The Revere Ride: A 40-mile all-night bike ride up the Hudson River in honor of Paul R.  The first ride (finally) took place on September 28th – 29th, 2013. Fun people plus superb weather made for an unforgettable night. Email me if you’d like to join next year (2014).

    I (like many others, clearly) was intrigued by the Humans of New York photo and interested in the issues surrounding the loss of the stacks at the NYPL, so I read a bit further, finally reaching the article in The Atlantic, which lead me here.

    And you’re a tanguero! Ha! So I’m wondering if I know you personally, since I helped to run La Nacional for about 4 years. I left NYC about a year ago, so I can’t help organize the milonga in Prospect Park, but I think it’s a grand idea.

    Anyway, excellent use of media to promote social change–great image of a man in an oilskin eating chicken, really (!), and best of luck to you in your endeavors.

      Probably. I’ve known JP and C for a while, though I haven’t been a regular at LN in years. Union Square, that’s my place.
