    My friend and I circumnavigated Manhattan on rollerblades today via the NYC Greenway. We started at 100th street and the Hudson River, went all the way down to The Battery and up the East Side to 34th street.

    I cannot find anywhere on the internet how many miles we skated.

    Can anyone here help me out?

    TIA.

    (Good reputation to anyone who can come up with the answer. Sorry, no tit pics:))

    I came up with about 12 miles on google maps. Your next challenge will be the whole Greenway, that is 17 miles. Although, making it through Spanish Harlem in one piece might be the true challenge.

    Yes, i just did it and I got 12.46 miles. Thank you, PullMyFinger. I will give you some rep ASAP.

    We plan to one day do the whole Greenway, which, according to the NYC website, is 32 miles.

    Anyone interested in the greenway, my advice is to avoid the east side as soon as you are north of the battery. God, it sucked moosecock!

    Next time I would like to head north up the west side. I love upper upper Manhattan, The Cloisters, Inwood and Fort Tryon Parks are awesome!

    No problem. Those are all great places, but they are on the West Side, just be careful when you are up along Harlem River Drive. It's pretty deserted over there. I'd be super careful. Thanks.

    really? i know I haven't lived here in a while but i thought there would be more people on the greenway.

    i did take my necklace and earrings off before we left, knowing we were starting at 100th street. But damn there was a shitload of people out today. And some NASTY bicyclists. Jerks think they own the place!

    what the hell, I don't get any rep after turning on to TWO websites that not only provide the information you requested, but also show you the elevation changes over the distance? :cuss:
