Dear Mom: Take A Hike!

This Sunday, instead of getting your mom the usual framed picture of yourself for Mother’s Day — why not spend some quality time with her by taking a hike? A city shore hike, that is.

There will be a hike that starts at Coney Island, goes along the boardwalk to Brighton Beach and Manhattan Beach, and to our very own picturesque Sheepshead Bay. This tour is organized by the Outdoors Club & Shorewalkers and Urban Trail Conference, Inc.

Here are the official details:

Brighton Beach & Beyond
We’ll walk the boardwalk, savor an exhilarating international community, enjoy a Russian lunch, & then explore Manhattan Beach & areas of Sheepshead Bay (including its Holocaust Memorial) before heading home. MEET: 10:30AM in front of Nathan’s. Bring water & snack. Take the D/F or Q to Coney Island-Stillwell Ave. (exit the front side of the station & you will spot Nathan’s to the right across the street).
Leader: Devra Zetlan (917)526-3908. Rain cancels.

Here is the listing with further details as listed in yesterday’s NY Times Spare Times section:
