  •  after times square, we marhed to the Bronx (6+ / 0-)

    picked up lots of people in Harlem, some violent arrests, cops tried to split the march up, yet a ton made it to the Bronx, i gave up at Yankee Stadium (actually the courthouse a few blocks away), but some continued on, they just didn't want to stop marching

      From Union Square (in Manhattan) up Broadway, through Harlem, and crossing over the Harlem River into the Bronx to Yankee Stadium is about 8 miles.

        that must be why i'm so tired :) i joined the march late, at 1st and 29th, lots of people bailed on the march up from times square but many joined in Harlem, so i don't think most people went the whole way from Union to Yankee Stadium. We also didn't take the straightist path since we had to dodge the police. my dogs are barking today.

          through Time's Square it's a pedestrian zone anyway, and going up the upper west side people could join the march for as long as they wanted to.

          Thanks so much for reporting on it.
