The Task

So as I wrote in my last MLB All Star Game Apple blog, I am going to attempt to see all 35 apples in NYC tomorrow, Saturday July 13th. I am coming down from Boston and have a 10 hour window in NYC to get this done. To make sure it is do-able, I mapped out where all the apples were and calculated distances between them. I also broke it up into 5 legs. Each leg is basically one walk-able area bear the apples where I don’t need a cab or the MTA,

As far as I know, no one has done it in 1 day, never alone 10 hours. It is going to be tight, but I have a solid game plan and I over estimated time spent at each apple and location. I’ll be posting on both my twitters (my personal one @DjArty84 and my Radio Shows @AeRadioShow2000 ) These twitters are also connected to associated Facebook pages and Instagrams accounts.

Leg 1

This a layout of the first leg of the tour. This leg will take about 60 minutes and cover about 2 miles before I jump on the train and head down town.

Leg 2

Image

Leg 2 covers only 3 apples, but the are so spread out downtown, there will be some walking. In reality it only should take about an hour down here, but we’ll see how it goes.

Leg 3

Image

Leg 3 takes me uptown to as far as 125th street. Again there are only 2 apples up this way but they are spread out between 25 blocks, so the train will be needed to get to both in a efficient amount on time.

Leg 4

Image

Leg 4 is where most of the Apples will be down. This will take a few hours and cover about 6 miles of walking, zig zagging between 60th st and 40th street. If I am on time, I should be hitting the last apple in this leg by 6:30PM. That will give me enough time to take the train to Queens to get the last apple at Citi Field. If I don’t get the last apple by 6:40 in this leg, I’ll have to abort the mission at 34 because I won’t have enough time to get back to mid town to grab by 8:30PM bus back to Boston.

Leg 5

ImageLeg 5 is a 7 train ride to and from Citi Field. Once I get this apple, I should be back in midtown to get the bus by 8:PM and have successfully grabbed all 35 All Star Game Apples in 10 hours.
