Coming This Weekend: A Walk Through Dystopia, Followed By a Visit to an Abandoned Smallpox Hospital and Then Bloomingdale's
This weekend I will describe one of my most unusual walks yet - beginning at the subway stop at 86th and Lexington, then east on 86th to Carl Schurz Park and Gracie Mansion, then down to the Queensboro Bridge along the East River, followed by a tram ride to Roosevelt Island and soon after, a visit to the Smallpox Hospital at the south end. Finally, I end up at Bloomingdale's.
