32 Miles In A Panama Hat

Panama Hats for Men from HartfordYork.com - Men's Brent Black Handwoven Straw Fedora Dress Hat - The Montecristi AficionadoIn his article, Walk of the Town, Joshua Stein describes his jaunt with the Manhattan Shorewalkers on their annual Great Saunter: a 32-mile waterside walk around the entire island, which took place earlier this month.

At 7:30 on a Saturday morning, Joshua joined “hundreds of other shore lovers and expert walkers . . . at the South Street Seaport. The crowd was older, many were bearded. They had walking sticks and panama hats, gaiters, hiking boots.”

It was a first for the Manhattan resident, who says: “I’ve lived in New York City for nigh on nine years. So I’ve certainly walked around Manhattan but until Saturday, I’d never actually walked AROUND Manhattan.” The entire ‘circumambulation’ took 11 hours, and I believe Mr. Stein might still be recovering in a steam room somewhere.

Well done, sir!
