Roosevelt Island Bus Trip


Wednesday, October 10, 2018
Bus leaves the Garden at 8 a.m. and returns at approximately 6 p.m.

Fee: $120 for members, $135 for non-members or guests.

Join us on Wednesday, October 10th, when we will again be under the “spell” of the wonderful New York historian, Joyce Gold.

Joyce meets us at 10:00 a.m. on Roosevelt Island for a two-hour walking tour. “From Madmen and Criminals to Innovation Hotspot” – Joyce’s description of present-day Roosevelt Island. Set in the middle of the East River, Roosevelt Island, after being bought by the City, was used for 100 years to house the unsavory services of prison and madhouse. In the last few decades, it has become a thriving mixed income town. You will see, among other things, the new Cornell-Technion Institute, the Four Freedoms Park, Roosevelt Island tramway, and spectacular views of Manhattan. So put on your walking shoes and join us!

At approximately 12:30 p.m., we board our bus and head to the famous Park Side Restaurant, an Italian landmark located in the heart of Corona, Queens, and one of the finest food destinations for years. Our luncheon will be served in a private room upstairs from the restaurant proper.

The bus leaves Clark Botanic Garden promptly at 8:00 a.m. and returns at approximately 6:00 p.m. The trip goes forward “rain or shine”, and the cost is $120 for members and $135 for non-members or guests.

Space is limited so register now!
