Hike the Heights!

Hike the Heights is a yearly guided urban hiking safari for kids thru Morningside Heights, following along paths defined by the presence of statues of giraffes. The object is to encourage fitness as well as promoting fun and education. The event, sponsored by CLIMB (City Life is Moving Bodies), connects numerous parks in the Harlem area.

We’re trying to foster that street ballet that Dean Jacobs talked about that, you know, that makes neighbourhoods and cities just incredible places to live. </font></p> <p> <br></p> <p><font size="3" face="Times New Roman"></font></p> <p><font size="3" face="Times New Roman">[music]</font> <br></p> <p><font size="3" face="Times New Roman"><i>Speaker:</i> [00:57] So this is a trail right here, this is a [unintelligible 01:00]?</font></p> <p> <br></p> <p><font size="3" face="Times New Roman"></font></p> <p><font size="3" face="Times New Roman"><i>Joanne Deidersdorf:</i> [01:01] A trail that is… goes through multi jurisdictions. So it goes in and out of city parks, and now we’re on city streets. But the idea would be that the trail would be eventually marked as one trail, and there would be signs directing people how to get from one city park to the next. </font></p> <p> <br></p> <p><font size="3" face="Times New Roman"><i></i></font></p> <p><font size="3" face="Times New Roman"><i>Speaker:</i> [01:22] The idea of having a trail, it’s an awesome idea cos it’s going to give them options and it’s even going to help the environment to clean the air and everything with all the trees.

So we want to create… we want to foster stewardship, we want to get people to fall in love with these spaces. So every year we throw a party and we invite our friends to hike together. </font> <br></p> <p><font size="3" face="Times New Roman">[music]</font></p> Transcription Sponsored by: <a href="http://transcriptdivas.com/">Transcript Divas Transcription Services </a>
