2019 TOURS

THE NEW WORLD OF THE NUMBER 7 TRAIN

Saturday, April 27,  10AM-5:30PM

(The Mets are playing at home so the #7 is safe for the weekend.)                        

Since 1999, when the Metrocard matured, I have led a tour called The World of the Number 7 Train. This series of six walks and connecting rides along North Queens’ transportation corridor became  my signature tour, focusing on what the #7 train did to and for surrounding neighborhoods since it began service in 1914. So much has changed since the tour began. In the NEW World of the Number 7 Train,  walks take place in the Hudson Yards, the Long Island City shoreline, Flushing West, the Iron Triangle, North Corona, and  Woodside-Jackson Heights. The routes are all different from the original tour. SO COME AGAIN! Lunch is still in Flushing’s Asian food mecca. Tour fee is $49 and you need to register by check to Jack Eichenbaum, 36-20 Bowne St. #6C, Flushing, NY 11354 (include name(s) and email address. Or pay with PayPal   https://geognyc.com/payments/

Please note:  I will be traveling abroad from March 17-April 5 so if you pay by check I will not be able to acknowledge receipt until after I return.
