Ascent Trip Report

Easy Urban hike from hotel through the nice end of the the big city. Hiked up Broadway to Chambers then by the Tweed Courthouse (City Hall Park) and up Elk Street. This is a completely uneventful "highpointing" endeavor but it warmed up the legs for the adventures the rest of the day and got me acclimated to navigating in the big city. Took a subway to destination number 2.
