Walk the Lincoln Tunnel


On the morning of Saturday October 15th, thousands of New Yorkers will be walking through the Lincoln Tunnel. Fresh air will be pumped into the tunnel and cars diverted to the other tubes. Walk-The-Tunnel marks the first day of a march from New York City to Washington, DC, part of the The Campaign To End AIDS. The tunnel is just less than 2 miles long, so the entire walk should take less than an hour.

Hundreds of people concerned about HIV/AIDS will be walking for three weeks, from the Lincoln Tunnel to the Lincoln Memorial. At the same time, car and van caravans will be winding their way across the country from 8 other locations, converging on the nation's capital for a week of activism. These activists have invited all New Yorkers to join them for the kick off of their historic walk.

Walk-The-Tunnelis a once in a lifetime opportunity for New York City history lovers, engineering buffs, those who like unusual events, or those just curious about the world's greatest city's hidden underside.

Saturday, Oct 15th, 2005 @ Lincoln Tunnel. Times Square Kick-Off Rally 7:30am, Tunnel Opens 8:30am. Public transport will be available to bring walkers back.
