The longest distance you have traveled on foot.

Recommended Posts

Well today, I both walked and jogged from the 59 St (N)  (R) to Barclays Center Station (2)  (3)  (4)  (5)  (B)  (D)  (N)  (Q)  (R) in just 58 minutes!!! After I arrived at the Barclays Center Subway Station I took the (N) back to 59 St. I was at 59 St at 5:16 pm and arrived at Barclays at 6:14 pm. I like to know what is the longest distance you have ever traveled on foot?

The furthest I recall walking off the top of my head is about 6 miles within SI. (I was walking home from West Brighton, and went along Richmond Terrace to South Avenue)

3.1 miles, following the N4 from Banks Avenue to Hempstead Avenue (2.2 miles) and then turning right onto Hempstead Avenue and following the 25's route to Lakeview Avenue, where I ran out of energy and had to wait for my parents to pick me up.  This was all flat, so it wasn't too bad.

 

As a bonus, I had to walk from the entrance to SUNY OW to my building, a good 1.5 mile walk.  I don't mind walking a mile, but there are three hills you have to climb before even reaching the campus proper, and those are a good 20-30 feet high, on top of the road almost constantly climbing after.  By the second hill, I could barely lift my legs.

 

You don't have to tell me I need to get my license.. but considering what I went through when I tried, I don't know what to do.

Funny this thread was brought up today, as for the first time in a while I walked over 5 miles (5.6 actually) to only pay two one-way bus fares. I suppose the furthest I've walked on foot was roughly 35 miles, from my house in Jurupa Valley, CA to the Moreno Valley Mall and back, because there was no transit service and I was not calling a taxi or asking anyone for a ride. Before that it was 20 miles back and forth from my house in Fontana, CA to the house of my then GF near Rialto, CA. I was being cheap then as well as I had to pay not only my bus fare but her's as well, nevermind a dinner and movie. Throughout my life it's been normal to walk 2 to 5 miles a day. Even if you use transit to get more direct access it's hard to walk under a mile without even thinking about it.

83rd St - Shore Road --> 65th St - 18th Av

 

That will happen to be thanks a lot to the B4, which I missed, and the next one did not come until I reached New Utrecht Av.

*There are two buses, one of them like an avenue behind.*

59th-cc to 110th-5th av with several zigzagging thru the park, so I can't say for sure how much more it would've added up, but compared to you guys, its probably nothing lol. So I guess somewhere b/w 2.5 and 3 mi.

I've traveled more than 5 miles on foot twice. Once I walked from 59th and Lexington to 59th and 5th Av going North through Central Park to 110th and down Riverside back into the park. The other occasion was from 168th and Broadway to 103rd and Lexington having gone through the Bronx via Macombs Dam Bridge, Grand Concourse and Third Av. Both of these were for community events though.

Damn, son. And I thought I was a cheapskate. LOL.

 

When you talk about 20 miles and 35 miles, is that round-trip or one way?

 

And yeah, for me, I live around a half mile from the bus, and then from the bus stop to school is another quarter mile or so, so that's bascally a guaranteed 1.5 miles of walking a day. And then add in the time I walk around the hallways at school, and then anything I have to do after school, and it's a decent amount.

 

They say 20 minutes of walking a day (about a mile) is generally recommended to maintain a healthy body weight, so that's one advantage of using public transportation.

 

Penn Station to 99th & Broadway

 

I think you mentioned a while back that you walked from Bushwick to Midtown & Brownsville to Downtown Brooklyn (or something to that effect).

I've walked from the Harbour town tramstop in Docklands to Footscray station under Citylink to Arden Street, along Arden Street over the railway at Kensington, following the railway line to the Maribyrnong River to Ballarat Road then down Moore Street to the station. About 6KM(4 miles)

I did the 1000 steps about 3 times in one go. That was 11KM(6.9 Miles)

I remember during above 90*F when I was leaving in Normade Court, I walk as follow.

Exit at rear at 96th St, 5th Av, turn right at 59th St, turn left at Broadway, cut across 23rd St at Broadway, then all the way to Battery Park.

 

Also during No More Fukushima Peace Walk, with groups of anti-nuclear activists and Fukushima children, with police escort, we walk north on Broadway to Astor Place, 8th St to 2nd Av, north on 2nd Av to 39th St, took lunch break at Japanese Buddhist Temple, then resume our walk north on 2nd Av, right at 47th St, stopped by in front of United Nations to wake up UN to shut down Nuclear Power Plants, where children left because children cannot walk all the way.

So, we went west on 47th St, right on 2nd Av, left on 49th St, right on 8th Av, and at Columbus Circle, police officer changed.

Then, we walk around Columbus Circle to Broadway, north on Broadway to 72nd St, then took 15 minutes/restroom break.

Then, we continue walking north on Broadway from east side of 73rd St, so police could keep up, all the way to 175th St.

5 hours Peacewalk.

I'm not much of a walker. I think the longest walks I did were all in New York:

 

1. From Madison Square Garden to Madame Tussauds on 42 Street via 7th Avenue.

 

Didn't mind it that much, despite the fact I don't do a lot of walking, but I did resent not being able to ride the (1), (2) or (3) lines. (R62s! Who in their right mind would walk when there are R62s??? :P)

 

Also, from Chambers (A)(C) to Rector (1), via Murray, Battery Park, Liberty, West Street, Carlisle and Greenwich, (started raining hard halfway through so the full walk through Battery Park couldn't be done) or from South Ferry (1) to Chambers (A)(C) via Battery Park.

Lol, that's lightweight stuff. I feel better now about my 60+ block walk now. But yeah, I'm not a walker, and unless its something I really like, I'm not doing long walks like that often.
