    Saturday, February 9th, 2008

    Information: After a brief hiatus (because it was cold), we’re ready for our next monthly hike (even though it’s cold):Who: You and your hiker friends

    When: Saturday, February 9th, 9:30 AM – meet at Hoboken PATH station

    Where: Pyramid Mountain, Kinnelon, NJ – about 45 min. from Hoboken

    What: 3.5-mile trail of moderate difficulty, recommended by “60 Hikes Within 60 Miles: New York City” for its winter scenery. We’ll spend a couple hours outside, but get back to the car before frostbite sets in. Trail includes Tripod Rock, a big rock carried by a glacier and left to rest on three little rocks (or a sundial built by Paleolithic humans – we’ll decide). Wear sturdy shoes for the rocky paths, warm layers to take off and put on as you warm up/cool down, and bring snacks, lunch, and at least 1L of water. Here’s our hike: http://www.localhikes.com/Hikes/PyramidMtn_5602.asp

    PLEASE RSVP BY WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 6TH. Please let me know if you’re bringing any friends along, and if you’re willing and able to drive – and if so, how many spots are available in your car. I’ll make sure that everyone has a ride.

    Book Reading – “The Last Three Miles” by Steven Hart
    Thursday, January 24th, 2008
     
    Time: 7:00 PM
    Location: Symposia Bookstore
    510 Washington St.
    Hoboken, NJ 07030
    United States
    Map and Directions
    Information: Two Hudson County landmarks — legendary political boss Frank Hague and the black steel colossus known as the Pulaski Skyway — will be the topics of discussion Thursday, Jan. 24, as author Steven Hart come to Symposia Bookstore to read from his book “The Last Three Miles:
    Politics, Murder, and the Construction of America’s First Superhighway,” published by The New Press.

    Hart, a journalist and freelance writer, has delved into the troubled history of the Skyway and the labor war that erupted during its construction in the early years of the Depression — a clash so violent that local newspapers called it “the war of the meadows.” He shows how a conflict between Hague and a former ally helped fuel the conflict that marked a turning point in Hague’s career as a political boss with the power to intimidate presidents. Hart also explains the Skyway’s place in history as the only surviving link in America’s first superhighway project, and how flaws in its design made it a hazard to life and limb from the day it opened in 1932.

    “The Last Three Miles” has been spotlighted in the New York Times and the Star-Ledger, and highly praised by noted authors such as Henry Petroski, Les Standiford and Christian Bauman, and he will be signing and selling copies after his talk, which is set for Thursday, Jan. 24, at 7 p.m. in Symposia Bookstore, 510 Washington Street, Hoboken, N.J.
    07030.
