On a Long Winter Break

Walking Off the Big Apple, like a bear in winter, is currently taking a long winter's nap. When the days grow warmer in the springtime, you may see increasing signs of activity.

Or not. We may have reached the end of this journey.

Life goes on in the city, and new adventures await. We shall see.


For now, though, enjoy the past decade of WOTBA adventures, and the ones of your own creation.

Note: The FB page for Walking Off the Big Apple is also currently asleep. You may also remember that this website bid a fond farewell in 2013 and then came back in 2015. There are no easy endings in blogland.

About Walking Off the Big Apple

Walking Off the Big Apple features self-guided tours to neighborhoods, streets, cultural history, good books, architecture, museums, parks, landscapes, and offbeat travel experiences in New York City.

Older posts will sometimes be updated to reflect relevant changes in the city, i.e. store or restaurant closings or transit information.

Writer and editor Teri Tynes created Walking Off the Big Apple in the summer of 2007.

As of January 2018, this website is updated only during bouts of nostalgia or when the writer feels compelled to share a fresh museum calendar.
