I walk for nearly 2 and 1/2 hours during the morning rush hour from Astoria, Queens to Wall Street, Manhattan in the Financial District. I travel south from Broadway in Astoria on Crescent Street, over the Ed Koch Queensboro (59th Street) Bridge, south on 2nd Avenue, west on Stuyvesant Street, south on Lafayette Street, south on Centre Street, and then south on Nassau Street ending at the New York Stock Exchange at Wall Street.

  2. OK second video I watch, I moved to Astoria after 5 years in NY to 21 Ave and 29 St, then I further in down Ditmars Blvd and 48th Street, I loved Astoria, it had all kinds of restaurants and closed to the city, although is a pretty far walk to Wall Street!!! I worked at One Bankers Trust Plaza, my first job, I think that building is no longer there after 9/11 it was damaged and I moved away in 2003. I feel as if I know every place you pass by and every step you are taking on these walks! How awesome is that!

  3. Thank you for this..As someone who rides the NYC subway day in and out for work, I’m often left drained at the end of the day. The constant crowded trains with people snapping at each-other…Just today when at Times Square, the MTA workers were blowing their whistle’s right by people’s ears…Shouting in order to move along the crowds. This is giving me the courage to brave the elements but at least protect my well being.

  4. Started watching your channel some months ago and I always come back to it … I love NYC. It is such a unique city and I love learning more about it. I am going to be living there with my fiance this year. I love watching your videos thoroughly. Keep it up 👍

  5. Is it the norm for people to walk for 2 to 2 1/2 hours daily from home to work? I’m asking because I’m thinking about relocating to New York and I think its an efficient way to save money from having car payments and paying for metro fare. Also, I bet it’s very beneficial for health purposes.

  6. Would it be wierd if i jogged alot of my commute when i move to nyc, i’d like to jog mostly, and only walk to take breaks. I only ask cuz from what ive seen people usually walk or bike or take the train and only run for exersize and i just dont wanna look like a wierdo jogging around most of the time while everyone else is casually walking

  7. I might start walking to work too to be more independent from asking parents for a ride. Maps says it’ll be a 2 hour 26 min walk to get to work, but I’m young I can do it.

  8. Simply love those clips. Going to NY this Fall and you helped me big time to more less know some parts. What would be great, and this is just an idea, if you could stick on the corner some interactive map while you walk, so viewers will know where exactly you are. Keep it up.
