City Pulse

By Jasmin Guleria

On any given spring Sunday in Manhattan, the streets are crowded with people who are coming from or going to brunch, window-shopping or just enjoying the weather with friends before gearing up for another grueling work week. This Sunday, May 17th, why not make a difference while enjoying the outdoors, getting in some exercise, and maybe even following up with a meal with friends.

The annual AIDS Walk New York is back. This 6-mile walk in Central Park raises money for Gay Men’s Health Crisis (GMHC) and 50 other local AIDS service organizations. The money raised helps to provide health care, food, legal services, and many other services to patients suffering from this disease.

Last year, $7 million was raised during the AIDS walk. How much can we raise this year? Register and donate today, and this Sunday walk with purpose, walk for a cause, and walk for a cure at the AIDS walk.

Register today at:

Post-Walk hunger pains? Below are a few sweet spots near the area that are sure to satisfy your taste-buds!

Levain Bakery – You’ll hit this bakery a few blocks before the finish line and it’s easy to spot with the line of other walkers eagerly waiting for Levain’s warm, decadent, famous Chocolate Chip Walnut Cookies! A great indulgence after a 6-mile walk! 167 West 74th St

If you’re craving brunch, the upper west side has a slew of them. We recommend Good Enough to Eat – a nice neighborhood brunch spot with great pancakes, French toast, and eggs to boot. 483 Amsterdam Ave at 83rd St.

Craving something light and zen? Go out with the ‘ladies who walked’ for some afternoon tea at the always-a-classic Alice’s Tea Cup Chapter 1. 102 W. 73rd St.
