This Sunday, November 8th, we're hosting our sixth annual walk of the island.

While Apartment Therapy is devoted to good homes and good design, our walk celebrates the fact that we all live next to one another and reminds us that we are a city of neighborhoods and people that all have tremendous potential to help one another.

Each year that we've done this it is unforgettable, healthy and community building. This year is even bigger and we're inviting you all to join in and bring your friends.
We start at Nathan's Hot Dog Stand right on Surf Avenue and then we're going to try taking Coney Island Avenue all the way to Flatbush before we hit Manhattan. Got a better route, please let me know your tips below in the comments.
Start: 9am at Nathan's near the Boardwalk (Subway: Stillwell and Surf Avenue on the D,F,N or Q)
Coming from downtown Manhattan? We start at 8am at Grey Dog Coffee on Carmine Street and walk over to the West 4th Street Subway.
Feel free to meet us there.
Want to find us on the road and join us in the middle? Call us: 917.509.6841. We're mobile but we do move fast.
See you all soon!

PS. Not in NYC?
Why don't you choose two great "across town" points to walk across your city this weekend? It's the easiest form of entertainment I've ever encountered.
