Mission Statement

Since 1982, Shorewalkers has been a leading advocate of environmental and other quality-of-life projects in the New York City Metropolitan Region emphasizing opening the waterfront properties to the public, pedestrianizing all New York City bridges and expanding the waterfront greenways of Manhattan, and expanding shore trails, and recreation areas.

Description

During the past 22 years, Shorewalkers created waterfront hiking around the NY area, and in the process, improved the health and stamina of thousands of walkers, as we led them where they had never been before - sometimes cul-de-sacs and dusty dead end paths.

Shorewalkers is dedicated to protecting open space and scenic trails for all to enjoy. We lead over 100 free, guided hikes each year. Volunteers have donated over 10,000 hours to improving the environment and showing people where to walk in nature.

The Great Saunter is a World Famous 32 mile walk around Manhattan's rim that attracts tourists and walkers from New York, as well as other states, and countries. S tarting early at South Street Seaport and ending there that evening for a celebration. Walk through 20 parks, experience many cultures, and celebrate the new Manhattan Waterfront Greenway. See the Statue Of Liberty, New Jersey, the Palisades, all four outer Boroughs, people fishing in the rivers, cherry trees in bloom, spring flowers . It is truly an international event in an international city! The Great Saunter has received support from New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, NYC Parks Commissioner Adrian Benepe, and the Manhattan Borough President.
