The Friends had an amazing, exhilarating day at the High Bridge Saturday, participating in the kickoff of festivities for NYC Parks' Season of the High Bridge. We had a nearly endless stream of people stopping at our table, which was well-located just next to the (98-step) stairway down to the bridge (Manhattan side), plus many who joined our walks on the bridge, which we led about every half hour. Mega-thanks to Sara, Lesley, Mavis, Bob, Carl and Tom for their stamina, cheerfulness, and dedication.
