CHV Explorers

CHV Explorers has been formed to visit less well-known historic sites in New York City.  Following the successful tour of the New York Marble Cemetery several members suggested organizing further trips like it, and CHV Explorers was formed.  The group's first trip was to The Merchants House Museum on February 4, 2020.  A committee of Breck Denny, Arnie Fink, Jim Robinson and Susan Wolf will develop ideas and host the trips.  All trips will be open to the CHV membership and announced in advance.  Sign up for each individual trip when announced.

When:  Trips will be announced in advance.

One Plus One at 11:00 Group at Engineer's Gate

One Plus One at 11:00AM on Mondays and Wednesdays


Join us to take a leisurely stroll in Central Park with fellow CHV members. It's a wonderful chance to get outside and meet some new neighbors.

Every Monday and Wednesday we walk about a mile together at whatever pace suits you.  We encourage everyone, no matter if you use a walker or your own two feet, to stroll along with us.

At the start, we break into smaller groups, often duos or trios, traveling 6 feet apart at different paces to accommodate everyone.

Do feel free to bring a friend from the Carnegie Hill neighborhood to enjoy the seasonal beauty of the park with us. 

Just show up!

When: Wednesdays and Mondays at 11:00AM

Where: North Side of the Engineer's Gate on Fifth Avenue at 90th Street
